In 2010 we provided hundreds of hours of free software development work to community organisations. Between this and cost savings on e-marketing, we estimate we saved the community over $200,000.

We are no longer offering free development to individual organizations  as our core grant funding is being applied to other major projects inside CIE, for example, the development of online antisemitism monitoring software.We are however still able to accept a limited amount of development work on a paid basis.

Where CIE does accept work for community organisations, we will provide an estimated budget and then charge by the hour.  Our budgets are conservative, so projects are usually completed below budget if they progress smoothly.

Our starting rate is $60 per hour, for projects we accept.

A typical website would cost $3k to $5k for us to develop (giving you about $8k to $15k of commercial value).

A very straight forward entry level community website (e.g. 4 pages) can usually be completed on a budget of $500 if the process is streamlined and the requesting organisation undertakes as much of the work as possible itself.

Examples of what the organisation would need to provide to keep the cost down as low as possible:

  • A registered domain (this will cost you about $20)
  • Your logo or a banner type graphic for the top of the page
  • A main picture for the front page
  • The menu structure for 3 or 4 pages. By default: Home, About us, Contact Us
  • The text to go on each of the pages (i.e. text about the organisation, contact details, perhaps committee details or a mission statement)
  • A colour scheme
  • Either a picture of what you want it to look like, or an example of one of our existing sites you want to base it on

Hosting with CIE

Categories: Services: Tags:

CIE hosts a large number of community sites. In 2010 we were able to offer free hosting to a number of organisations as part of CIE’s budget. While we are not able to continue that service, we are still able to offer hosting to community organisations at a competitive rate.

For most organisations this will be $100 per year.

At this level we can support up to 1GB of storage space and up to 5GB of transfers a month. Your actually limit may be lower at any given time based on your need as we do aim to share resources between those we are supporting to allow short term extra coverage (at no extra cost) during peak periods. The accounts can be used for an unlimited number of e-mail addresses and have full cpanel access.

For organisations with higher requirements we can provide a quote on request.
