We help to test digital business ideas. It's not just "create a mobile app and send it to App Store". It may come as a surprise, but the idea can be tested even without a single line of code. It can be photos, fake landing pages, prototypes, and MVPs. No need to build large systems to validate customer demand.

More about Web development companies

What is a web development company?

It is a company that develops and codes websites for Internet, intranet (the local network), web applications and web software. Web development company provides such services as web engineering, client-side/server-side scripting, web design, web architecture development, web content development, client liaison and network security configuration.
Usually web development refers to non-design aspects of constructing a website, such as writing a markup and its further programming of functionality. The end products such companies provide may range from simple text pages to comprehensive web-based applications, social network applications, e-commerce websites and online stores, etc.

How does a web development company work?

Typically the web development process consists of such stages:

  1. Goal Identification. Identifying client’s needs and website goal help in providing perfect web solution he is looking for. Frequently the goal identifies in collaboration of development team with the client and stakeholders. At this stage is helpful to use such tools as: creative brief, target audience determination and competitor analysis.
  2. Scope of work definition. For successful planning you should define deliverables, sprints with projected timeframes and required resources, Gantt chart which will help in further project management.
  3. Sitemap and wireframe creation. In fact, a sitemap is an organized website structure which shows how all the pages will be connected together accordingly to the hierarchy and its importance. While wireframe is a framework where is collected website’s visual design and content elements.
  4. Content creation. Content engages website visitor to take an action on the website. If the content written correctly, it will also boost the website visibility through the search engines (SEO).
  5. Development. It is a stage where designs and content approved by the client are transformed into the working website model. Usually this stage is divided into two parts: front-end development (the process of converting data into graphic interface which is seen by the website visitors) and backend development (which is responsible for website functionality).
  6. Beta testing. The team of QA engineers performs tests in order to detect bugs and other contradictions.The most effective are: compatibility, functionality, usability and performance tests.
  7. Deployment. Once the QA team gives final approval it is time to deploy the website to the server using FTP (File Transfer Protocol).
  8. Maintenance. This stage includes few post-deployment tasks as providing clients with the source code and project documentation. It also includes post-deployment support and possible changes according to the user’s feedback.

What services do web developers offer?

To develop high-quality website or web app the team would provide you with such services:

Front-end development is responsible for the “client-side” - the part of a website that user sees and directly interacts with. Front-end developers should obtain expertise in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, integration of libraries like jQuery and frameworks as AngularJS, ReactJS, NodeJS, BackboneJS, EmberJS, etc.
Back-end development is responsible for the “server-side” which focused on how the website works, mainly on its responsiveness and speed. Back-end developers should obtain expertise in such programming languages as Java, PHP, C++, C#, Python, Ruby, .NET and SQL.
UI/UX design which are responsible for user interface and user experience design. UI and UX designer should have knowledge in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign programs and at the lesser extent HTML/CSS in order to understand the limitations of what is allowable and what is implementable.
QA testing is a process of executing a website or web app in order to find out errors and defects. QA engineers should obtain expertise in white-box testing (API-testing, code coverage, fault injection), black-box (boundary value analysis, model-based testing, exploratory testing) grey-box testing (reverse engineering, integration testing).

Additionally web development companies may provide such services as:

Mobile development. The construction of mobile equivalent responsive websites for Android, iOS.
E-commerce solutions. The development of scalable website for business using such technologies as Magento, Shopify, WooCommerce.
Digital marketing services. It could be also available such services as digital marketing strategy creation, SEO optimization, PPC management, conversion rate optimization and content marketing writing.


How much does it cost to develop a website?

The thing is that you can rarely find a company which will set a fixed price for the website or web app development. The price usually depends on such factors as: hourly rates, level of complexity, required features, general goal, urgency and others.

Website development average cost rate:

  • Informational website or website for small business (5-20 pages) - $ 2,000 - 10,000
  • Corporate website (21-75 pages) - $ 10,000 - 35,000
  • E-commerce website (100-1,000 products) - $ 5,000 - 55,000
  • Database driven website (20-2,000 pages) - $ 5,000 - 75,000

Web application development average cost rate:

  • Small Web app - $ 3,000 - 8,000
  • Middle-size web app - $ 9,000 - 16,000
  • Complex web app - $ 16,000+

Commonly website development includes such steps:

  1. Domain name. The company needs a unique address of the website in order users can find and access it. Price: $ 5 - 15/year.
  2. Website hosting. It is a service that makes the website accessible 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. Price: $ 40 - 200/year.
  3. SSL Certificate. A tool for website security. Price: $ 70 - 300/year
  4. Website design. Creation of specific design according to company’s business needs. Price: $ 2,000 - 15,000.
  5. Responsible web design. Front-end development approach that enables appropriate website visualization on various devices and screen sizes. Price: $ 3,000 - 25,000.
  6. Website functionality. One of the core stages when the static page transforms into dynamic page. Price: $ 2,000 - 25,000 but depending on the website complexity the price can be significantly higher.
  7. Added multimedia. Adding interactive content such as images, video-, audio- and animated elements. Price: $ 250 - 10,000.
  8. Integration of Content Management System (CMS). That is quite an useful feature which helps to manage digital content creation and modification on the website. Price: $ 2,000 - 25,000.
  9. Database integration. In case if the company has internal or third-party database and there is a need to integrate it on the website. Price: $ 5,000 - 25,000.

Some web development companies set a fixed price for the whole project but more often companies charge an hourly price for web development. Here are hourly cost rates for web development company specialists in different countries:

Specialist USA Western Europe Eastern Europe
Back-end developer $80 $65 $25
Android developer $80 $60 $30
iOS developer $90 $70 $30
Front-end developer $80 $65 $30
Graphic designer $60 $50 $25
QA engineer $70 $55 $20
Project manager $100 $65 $30
System Administrator $70 $50 $25

How long does it take to build a website?

For successful website deployment it is quite important to establish and follow project timeline. A typical website project timeline should include the most significant milestones that represent crucial stages of website development:

  • Planning stage lasts for 2-10 weeks.
  • Design stage lasts for 4-12 weeks.
  • Content creation lasts for 5-15 weeks.
  • Development stage lasts for 5-15 weeks.
  • Beta testing lasts for 2-6 weeks.
  • Deployment stage lasts for 1-3 days.

As we can count, the simple website requires approximately 18 weeks for development and complex website requires a year (58 weeks) and more.

  • Quality of work. It is often happens that freelancer is more concerned about quantity of performed projects rather than on delivered quality.
