The cost to start and build a website can range anywhere from nothing, to hundreds of dollars. It really depends on the kind of website you want, and what it’s for. If you just want a personal web page, you can get free web hosting, and a free domain name for your web page. If you want something more professional looking, you’ll want your own domain name, and you’ll want private hosting. This is where it starts to cost you money. The domain and the hosting can cost as much as 100 dollars per month!
