Some basic costs 

 Domain Name

This goes without saying but you need a domain name. This can cost anywhere from £3 to 20. This will usually be a yearly cost.Top level domains like .com, .co.uk and .net tend to cost more. If the name you want has already been taken, you may be able to reach out to the owner and offer to buy it off them. Beware though because this may cost you a lot.


You will also need hosting. Without boring you with all the technical details, just think of it like a home for your website. It keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It can cost you around £20 per month.
