Web Design Definition in Malaysia
When we (Malaysian) search for web design in Google, I assume that most of us are looking for a complete website creation, and not just the design part of it.
Thus, I will be referring to the term “web design” as “website creation” in this article.
First of all, there is no such thing as the standard price for web design, simply because all websites are created differently and have different functionality.
I am going to show you some examples of different type of website and their costing respectively in the paragraph below.
You will need to consider a few things before a web design company like us could provide you with an estimated cost for your desired website.
Here are the things to consider before asking for a Web Design Cost
- How many web pages do you need?
- Template based or custom-made design?
- Do you have your own logo?
- Do you need Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
- Are you selling products on the website (eCommerce)?
- How much traffic per month do you foresee?
- Do you need a speedy website?
- Do you require a dashboard system?
- Any other special functionality?
After you have answered the above questions, the web design company will then propose the cost for your desired website.
How does a Web Design Company calculate the Website Cost?

*Domain name is the name and address of your website, just like “dinno.com.my“. It is used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. The price of a domain name can be much higher (up to a few thousand ringgit) if you opt for popular domain names that have to be purchased from other owners. You can search for a domain name using Godaddy.com
**The price for website content writing (also known as ‘Copywriting’) depends on the number of pages and number of languages required. We do provide high-quality website content writing services, let us know if you need one.
General Acceptable Price for different types of Website in Malaysia
Basic One-Page Website Design Cost (Starting from RM1,500)
A one-page website is simply a single page website. When clicking on navigation links, the user scrolls down the page or jumps to that particular content’s section. Single page website is simple and good enough for small business.
Similarly, if you only require a single landing page to collect leads, you are probably looking into RM1,500-ish price range.
Multi-page Website Design Cost (Starting from RM2,500)
Any business that’s seeking to expand into new markets or constantly adding items to their portfolio needs to have a scalable solution at their disposal. Multiple-page web design is the obvious choice in this case.
Multi-page web design also comes with an excellent SEO potential. Thanks to the ability to target different keywords for each page, multi-page designs enables you to rank for multiple key phrases.
eCommerce Website Design Cost (Starting from RM4,000)
If you are selling products/services online, you will probably need an eCommerce website.
eCommerce websites are online portals that facilitate online transactions of goods and services through means of the transfer of information and funds over the Internet. Some of the Malaysia Online Payment Gateway companies that provide online payment solutions include e-GHL, iPay88, and MolPay.
Custom-made Website Design Cost (Up to RM100,000)
You should better go with a website with unique design and features if you want to stand out from the crowd.
A fully customized single landing page which is tailored made for you could cost RM3,000 and higher depends on the functionality and designs.
The price of the custom-made Multi-page web design starts from RM8,000.
If you require a platform, dashboards or any system based on individual request and requirements, the web design cost could reach RM15,000 and more.
Why are some Web Design Packages so much cheaper?
While you can seek for a cheaper rate web design cost from a freelance web designer, make sure you know that you know what are you paying for.
There are several “creative” pricing strategies out there which are tricky.
Some web design packages are advertised using “per month” pricing strategy. The price seems to be cheap, but it is not, really.
Just calculate the example given: RM125 per month x 12 months = Rm1500 per year
Some offer one-time fees for web design and yearly renewal fees for domain and hosting, while others collect yearly subscription fees.
So, next time, when you encounter with “cheap” web design cost, ask for the cost breakdown and details.
