    hey guys well lots of people in community saw i have been making websites, and now they want me to make a website for their websites for some money.
    How much do you think i can charge a website?
    and for a venture like this, what kind of hosting should i use for the websites that provide me some good templates?
    and a way for me to have like a an introduction video before entering the website?

    is there a ebook or something i can look at to get better ideas on how to make this possible?

    any hosting with cpanel is fine, prefer fantastico support or something similar. i recommend wordpress first maybe joomla for a cms. if you're asking all of this + what to charge you probably shouldn't be asking anyway imo.

    About a year ago I started a web design business, its not a full time job really but a very nice part time for me.

    I have a hostgator reseller account that cost me about $25 bucks per month and have about 15 different sites hosted on the account, its very easy to set up and I charge my customers $100 per year for their hosting.

    Im not the best designer so for most jobs I will outsource to a company that I have worked with for the past 6 months and they do a very good job and great designs with custom CMS.

    I usually do not like to take any web jobs under $400.

    My prices are $400 for simple 5 page informational site, 6-$800 for ecommerce and 1k + for some custom programming sites.

    If you are not professional designer then I would highly recommend outsourcing the work so you can provide quality work to your clients.

    Hope this helps!

    you can charges them according the pages of the website, the time to create it, the work flow that you need to follow up. Usually designer would like to charge per page or by the content such as flash or wording content.
