    any idea how much would it cost to built a similar site like the one below:

    http://dynastycontent.com/

    not copying from the site above but somewhat similar. i was told by one provider that the portion on the top that asks for article count, qty, name, email address etc would increase the cost a lot. please advise.

    Content would be provided by me to the provider.

    html template from theme forest - 50 $ + hosting - 5 $ + domain 10 $ = 65 $ ( Max. ) , add extra 50 $ if you can't edit html, which doesn't look like the case with you sir !
    Also " i was told by one provider that the portion on the top that asks for article count, qty, name, email address etc would increase the cost a lot."
    Sounds BS to me, looks like a 15-20 mins job at max.

    It's super easy for a coder to do that calculator. Ive had custom made calculators done at odesk for 50-100 dollars.

    I recommend you read some guides on how to set up a wordpress site. And then just hire someone for any custom stuff you need.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I was told that with wordpress, if i add the calculator it will raise the cost to $400 and without wordpress ( custom site) it would be $300.

    I am not offering you or promoting my service by saying this but for that design I would charge a client probably no more then $100 so that $300-$400 (In my opinion) is over priced. I could develop a site that would look 10X better then that on WIX in 2 hours. The expensive part for web development is the coding and coders charge a s*** ton for their time due to the intensity of the work.
