Weebly Plans & Pricing (2022)
BlueHost allows users to build a website free of charge. With their free plan, users have up to 500MB of storage space, a free SSL certificate, free SEO optimization and lead generation. The only downside is that you’ll be stuck with their own domain (.weebly.com). To remove their domain, you’ll have to purchase one of their plans and a domain of your own.
As for their paid plans, they divided them into 2 categories: websites and online stores (eCommerce).
Weebly has very sophisticated and professional-looking templates that are already programmed to adjust to any device. All of their templates are 100% customizable and ready to use.
Their free plan allows you to build a website free of charge, but you will be stuck with their domain. However, with their Connect plan, you can connect your own domain and use Weebly’s awesome templates at $5/month. The two plans are equal when it comes to features. The difference just lies in the domain.
The Pro plan is a much more complete version, and it is recommended for entrepreneurs and small business owners.
It has a free SSL certificate, unlimited storage, advanced SEO tools, and a free $100 voucher to use on Google Ads. And it has a cost of $10/month.
Along with all the features from the Pro plan, the $20/month Business plan also has some eCommerce features, allowing you to build an online store with Shopping Cart, several payment options, product labels, stock management, coupon codes and advanced eCommerce analytics.
