What Is Weebly?
On the wide spectrum of website building solutions, Weebly lives on the end that is all-inclusive and provides everything you need to get started and grow your website. It’s in contrast to solutions where you buy, install, and manage all the “pieces” of your website separately.
It’s like trading off some control for more convenience.
Using Weebly is sort of like leasing and customizing an apartment in a nice development instead of buying and owning your own house. You’re still in control of decor, cleaning, and everything living-wise – but you leave the construction, plumbing, security, and infrastructure to the property owner. That point is key because there’s usually a direct tradeoff between convenience and control.
All the functionality and design that are included with Weebly work seamlessly together as a platform. That’s what allows them to have drag and drop design, layout, and content.
If you don’t mind your site on a subdomain (ie, http://yourwebsite.weebly.com) then weebly cost is free with no expiration. A pretty good deal – especially for temporary sites.
Overall pricing is very competitive not only compared to other all-inclusive website builders but also with buying your own hosting. Their Starter plan starts around $8/mo when paid up front. And they don’t have the typical caps of other website builders. The Pro plan adds solid features and still stays under $12/mo.
And again – you’ll notice that everything is bundled and unlimited. There are no caps on pages or storage space. And unlike competitors like Wix, they remove all ads with the first paid tier.
Even their business pricing, while more expensive than doing the same thing on your own hosting, is much cheaper than comparable plans with direct competitors.
