THE COSTS to implement a database web application into two of three categories -- Application Development Costs and Database Server Start-up or Monthly Database Hosting Costs.

Application Development Costs

Web database development often ranges from $300 to $15,000 depending on the complexity of the web site. Typical projects usually cost between $500 to $5,000.

We also provide web page design services at a rate of $50 per hour.

Monthly Hosting Costs

The suggested option is to deploy your database application with a WiTango or ColdFusion web hosting service. In this case, you would pay a monthly fee to put your database application on their server. This fee starts at $25 per month (which includes standard web hosting) and may be higher depending on the traffic requirements of your application. The range is typically from $25 - $50 per month. High traffic sites could be more.

Database Server Start-up Costs

The software Database WebWorks uses to develop and deploy database applications is WiTango Enterprise or ColdFusion . Once an application has been developed, it can be deployed on your own web server (purchase of the WiTango or ColdFusion application server is required) or on a Tango or ColdFusion web hosting service (preferred).

External Maintenance Costs-- NEXT TO NOTHING!!

The beauty of a Database WebWorks-designed database integration project is that external maintenance costs are greatly reduced if not eliminated altogether.

Regular monthly, weekly or daily maintenance of the data that drives your site is updated by your existing in-house staff at their own computers via our specifically created browser forms -- you will have solved one of your major web site related headaches.

Your web site will always be up-to-date -- a feature that your customers will appreciate and make your competitors' web sites stale.

Return on Investment

In comparison to the advantages of placing a Database WebWorks integrated database on the Internet, the costs are moderate. The return-on-investment is substantial.
