First, congrats on getting ready to publish your project! That’s always super exciting!
I also just want to quickly clarify the difference between our account plans and our site plans:
Everyone needs an Account plan - as this gives access to the main Webflow Designer tool itself and the dashboard. However, you can build for free on our Free/Starter plan, and just upgrade to a paid account plan as and when you need more projects in development.
Site/Hosting plans are added on a per project basis when you need to unlock the limits, add a custom domain or enable the Editor for your clients.
If you are on our Free/Starter account plan, you can build and publish up to 2 projects on the webflow.io domain. For example, if your site is named MyAwesomeSite, when you publish to the webflow.io domain, it would look something like this:
www.MyAwesomeSite.webflow.io. You can also edit your design in the Designer and republish to the webflow.io domain whenever you’d like!
If you have purchased a site/hosting plan with Webflow, you can also make changes via the Designer and publish those changes whenever you wish — either to a webflow.io staging domain or to your own custom domain if you have that set up.
I hope this helped to clarify things!
