English translation:With this new technique we are able to design complete home pages for as little as DM 990.
Explanation:
I would rearrange the English slightly:

With this new technique we are able to design complete home pages for as little as DM 990.

(depending on the context, you may prefer to use "technology")

A home page is just the initial page of a web site... I get the feeling that the German means more than one page.
Perhaps "entire website"?

hope this helps,

Explanation:
This new technology means we are now able to create homepages for just DM 990.

You've got the idea right, but I don't think we'd say 'by this new technology' in English.

Hope this helps
