I have seen quite a lot of Nepalese tech website specially so called website designer who design websites for tens of thousands of Rupees. I am so surprised, they are just over charging the people who have no idea about designing websites. So, the short answer is “No”. If you are just a start up or just a blogger and write articles than you should not pay thousands of Rupees to design a website in Nepal and also no where in the world. But in the other hand if you are a organization you afford to spend tens of thousands and even sometimes Lakhs than you probably can pay a lot but I don’t recommend and you can get it for cheap or sometimes for free.
Don’t pay any money to any website designer who promises to make you a website. Why waste those money that you work hard for, just to make something that you can get for free. You can make it for free by yourself with little bit of creativity. You will learn how to get a good looking design for your website and also get your website online in no time.
The reason why people pay lot of money just for the design is they don’t know the resource where to get the design for website for free. So here are the some platform where you can open your account and get many designs for the website for free.
