sometimes I can't believe people are willing to pay so much money for just a simple website !!

    In what fucking parallel universe do you live? I used to make freelance websites and most of them were purely text based with pictures, sometimes they were multiple pages with a very simple menu. On freelancer.com or similar sites it is really difficult to get more than 15€ for this, which is fucking rediculous when you consider that I work 2-3 hours on it. (between communication with the client, actually making the html and css and changes the clients want to be done.

    but then there are devs from nepal who are doing it for $5

    here in switzerland a website for a small business starts at $ 5000 up to $ 12'000. And for medium to big business prices start around $40'000.

    @heyheni ok that is a LOT of money, but the swissd cost of living is high as well. That is to say, this kind of money is only for when a really professional big studio makes your site and it includes things with php and databases. If you want to have a textbased page with a bit of fancy css you can just pay someone from 50 to 250€ and they will do that.
    I live in Germany and I once bought a website with fancy parallax effects (back when this was the shit), an email contact form, implemented youtube videos and overall really nice design for 350€

    @jobylie The last few 2-3 hour web jobs I did, I made $200-$300 CAD.

    If you go to a professional company asking for a super simple 3-5 page site (not including DBs or backend), you're looking at around $2500.
