Website strategy development:

- target audience definition
- SEO optimization at the stage of developing a new website
- promotion plan
- identifying ways to promote
The cost of developing a website strategy starts from 200 euros and directly depends on several factors: the number of specialists required for analysis, the complexity of the tasks assigned to them and the time required to create a plan.
The stage of website design development is very important, since most users evaluate the site primarily by its appearance. Therefore, the site should be pleasant, understandable, attractive. The UI / UX designer is responsible for this part of the site development stage. The main task is to create a website that will be clear and easy to use. To make your site profitable and deliver results, you need to win over the user, and for this a well-thought-out web design is used.
The design cost also depends on many factors:
- Number of pages
- Availability of visual animations
- Number of feedback forms
- Complexity of the site structure
On average, the design development takes from 25 to 300 hours, depending on the type of site and the complexity of the project. The cost of website design in Moldova starts from 150 euros for business card sites and 600 euros for online stores.
Front-End development stage is the creation of the technical skeleton of the site. Here, developers, layout designers create a full-fledged website template from a drawn design, where all elements become active, clickable, and in the future your users will interact with them.
The tasks at this stage are very important:
- Support for any browsers
- Adaptability for all devices
- Correct operation of all active elements
- Correct display
The cost of these works is affected by the complexity of tasks, animations, the number of pages, functionality and structure and capabilities of the site being developed. Front-End development (layout) takes from 30 hours to 400 hours on average, and the average cost of a specialist's work is 8 euros per hour.
Development stage where the visual part of the site receives a set of code that, when interacting with the user, performs all the necessary tasks and functions. For example, when a user clicks on a visual link on a site, for which Front-End development is responsible, then actions for which Back-End development is already responsible, for example, sorting and providing the necessary information from the database, sending data from forms to the server, processing information and so on.
Back-End development also includes:
- Connecting third-party APIs and services
- Processing complex and non-standard requests
- Creation of unique site functions

CMS system development, admin panel
The admin panel is required to manage content on the site. Adding new products, materials, editing information, uploading files, etc. - the admin panel is responsible for this. Of course, you can use ready-made CMS systems, which will reduce the cost and time to complete the work, but this will reduce safety, speed, and also you will be limited by the standard set of functionality. The most correct choice in this case is the development of an individual admin panel.
Of course, you can refuse to develop the admin panel, but if the content of your site is not static, and you periodically edit and add information, then you cannot do without the admin panel. The own admin panel has many advantages, in contrast to popular ready-made solutions for which there is a huge amount of malware:
- Selecting the required functionality
- Implementation of all the necessary tools for site management
- High level of security
- Create different roles and priorities for panel users
Depending on the complexity and functionality of the admin panel, the development will require from 20 to 160 hours of work and on average will cost from 200 euros and more.

The so-called landing page can be either a separate full-fledged site, or a separate page of an existing site. The main goal is to provide the necessary information about a product, service, event, etc. as clearly as possible. This is the cheapest and fastest type of website to develop, its cost starts from 350 euros and takes about 1 week to develop.
