There are plenty of web designers willing to build your site for $10,000.
That's pretty steep for a small to medium-size business who just wants an online brochure or product/service information for their customers. We have done sites for as little as $250.00 (the cost for every site will vary depending on the complexity). Larger interactive sites, will of course, run a little or a lot more.
We generally do web site development on an hourly basis. Your cost will depend on how large and involved the site becomes. This is a good way to establish an Internet presence and build on it over time.
Database and E-Commerce sites are done on a negotiated basis.
