If you have a website, you definitely need to maintain it. Either you can learn website management yourself or you can hire a website builder in India for that matter.
The cost to maintain an e-commerce website depends on certain factors such as:

- Do you want to include code changes or adding new features in your web maintenance package?
#6 How much is the hourly rate of Indian web developers?
Again, there is no standard price that Indian web developers charge however you can expect to get a quotation ranging from $7 per hour to $15 or more per hour.
Ideally, you must avoid working on an hourly basis for a new project.
The new projects should always be developed on a fixed amount.
If you have ongoing changes or updates to be done on your website, then you can consider hiring a developer on an hourly basis.
#7 Are there any hidden charges?
This is perhaps another common question that most of our prospects ask before hiring us to create their websites.
The would ask us the questions like:
- Are there any other charges that I need to pay?
- Is there any recurring cost(s) that I should know?
Although, there are no such hidden charges, there a few recurring costs that every webmaster must know. Some of these recurring costs are:
- Renewal charges for some plugins used on the website.
- Renewal charges of the domain name & web hosting.
- Renewal charges of SSL certificate of the server.
Of course, the above-mentioned charges are not hidden costs, but many novice webmasters are not aware of them. Because when they get to know about them, they sometimes consider them as hidden charges.
Primarily, it’s the job of your website developer to inform you about these recurring charges before even you hire him.
