Monthly website packages in South Africa
Monthly website packages in South Africa can come in two forms. It can be a maintenance package only or it could be a maintenance package that includes web design. The differences between the two are that a maintenance package on its own means that you have paid a developer to design your website and now the developer is charging you a monthly fee to maintain your website, the second is that you are starting out and choose a web developer that is just going to charge you one monthly fee which includes the development of your website and maintenance of your website.
Both of these can be beneficial and selecting the right one for you is important. If you run a miro business or you are just about to start a new business, choosing a package that includes web design and maintenance can be very beneficial to your business as it generally costs only a few hundred Rand per month with no upfront costs. When starting out, you may not want to spend a large amount all at once or you could want the freedom to be able to ask your developer to make changes as your business evolves.
If you are running a medium-sized business you may want to get your website redesigned and pay once-off for the design, then hiring a developer to maintain your website on a monthly basis may be the best option for your business.
Charges for maintenance can vary, read more about the charges in our article about maintenance package costs, but there are two main ways in which developers charge which are on a fixed cost, or monthly retainer related to the hours for work. You could be paying anywhere between R400 and R2000 depending on the website, business, and developer.
