Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much does it cost to build a website or a web application?
Your budget might vary a lot, depending on your needs and business goals. If you do not require something sophisticated and want to build a template website, you can use any web builder or CMS to make your idea come alive. In this case, the budget of a few hundred dollars is enough to get the project off the ground at the very beginning. Although we do not provide such kind of services, there are a lot of reliable vendors out there to assist you with this task.
Once you evolve as a well-established business (or you already run one), you may need a tailor-made website or a web application. If you go with this option, the cost of your website might start at a few thousand dollars. The price will go up as you add more features to enhance your clients’ experience. In case you want to build a web application with a complex logic and intuitive navigation, you may need to increase your budget. These are often five-figure projects, which require the work of seasoned developers, business analysts, and designers. To get an accurate project estimation, you should speak to our expert, who will analyze your idea, offer a custom solution to meet your needs, and develop a technical proposal that includes all the details, such as a budget, a project timeline, and a tech stack.
2. What does the process look like?
Our web development process can be broken into four main stages, which are the discovery stage, development, launch, and support. When you contact us for the first time, our account executives schedule a call with you and our tech team to discuss your idea and decide on the product that is going to be developed. At the end of this stage, you get a detailed tech proposal with an estimation, a timeline, and a proposed tech stack.
After we agree on all the points, we initiate the development phase and create a team of high-end engineers, who help to make your idea a reality. We also assign a project manager who keeps track of all the processes and provides you with regular updates on the project status. At the end of each sprint, you get a demo to make sure you are delighted with the outcome.
When the product is ready for the launch, we publish all the materials on the production domain. After this step, your website or web application becomes available to your users. We also provide you with continuous support. If you need to change something, add new features, and scale your product further, we are always here to assist you with this task.
3. What technology should I choose for a web project?
The LITSLINK team of software engineers comprises developers and architects specialized in a variety of technologies. We take a personalized approach in the choice of a tech stack as it highly depends on a variety of factors, such as a budget, project timeline, deadlines, feature set, scalability of an app or a website, etc.
For front-end, we commonly use React JS, Vue.js, Angular, or Ember. When we work on the back-end, we usually apply Ruby (or its framework Ruby on Rails), Python (Flask, Django), Node.js (Adonis, Express, Feather), Groovy (Grails), Elixir (Phoenix), Java (Spring), or C#. If you require support in any other tech, you can also drop us a line, and we’ll discuss your request in detail.
4. What is the range of your web development services?
With a team of 130+ in-house engineers, we are capable of meeting any of your requests. We provide a wide range of services, starting from visual design and preparing documentation and ending up with more complex projects, such as web applications and multi-featured websites. If you have just a product idea, and you are looking for a vendor to build it from scratch, we can start with an MVP and develop a clickable prototype to get an idea of how your website or web app will look and function. After you get the first feedback from your users, we can scale your product by adding new features to enhance your users’ experience.
As for our website design and development services, we build tailor-made websites for startups and SME businesses to better showcase their products and provide instant value to their customers. We always recommend starting with a visual design and a prototype to make sure your website works flawlessly. When we deal with web applications, we develop several versions of the app to make sure users can access it from different devices. We also build an admin dashboard so that you can manage all the processes and keep track of your business operations.
