Plans- Free plan limit? Cheaper plans in the works?

Hi Sergie,
I'm in the same boat as Thomas. I have one site with around 100 pages. I'd like to redesign it in Webflow to make it responsive and would like to add even more pages....maybe add another site. I would only update bits and pieces of it a few times a year.
I would have no problem paying for a month (or fortnight) of use at a time and when I returned here, my site (s) are still here intact.
Would that work?
.
EDIT:
The more I think about it, the more I see a need for a 'webmaster plan'. I know of a couple of people who also run their own business and site, as myself and Thomas, that I'm sure would rather use Webflow than what they are currently using.

Webflow is a very advanced tool. Adobe pricing structure is very similar to this, and Webflow current pricing is VERY convenient and affordable. In the USA, its the price of a lunch with tip. For a month. That is not bad at all. I'm a working professional UI Designer and Multimedia Artist, and Webflow has become my go to for rapid prototyping and responsive design for anything web. Like any truly good tools, it should demand a price. Good tools are hard to come across. Innovation and visionary out look on how the web can be manipulated should be rewarded. So for the following people lamenting the current price structure, may I make a recommendation?
If you are a starving designer/artist, use Webflow one page at a time. Once you are happy, export your site to your own hosting solution. Learn to edit HTML5/CSS3 and use JQuery and use a friendly text editor like Sublime2. After you realize the time you SAVE in using Webflow, justifying the price to your client or yourself should be easy. Also because I myself would like to get to know creatives/designers/front end devs on this site to get pointers and ideas from to better create/design/manage projects. Nothing wrong if you are learning, but do pick up a book on HTML5 and CSS3. Not that you need to know it with Webflow, but in the end it helps when suggesting workarounds or giving advice. In the end the pricing is more than fair for what they offer, in my opinion.

It is indeed an advanced tool, but the cheapest pricing for getting extra sites is $20 a month or $192 a year. You can compare it to lunch if you want, but I disagree with your opinion and think a cheaper pricing structure should be in the works, especially for those that already have hosting plans and have no desire to make 10 different websites.

Thanks @thesergie.

I think I might have misunderstood your free plan. Is the 5 exports a monthly recurring or an absolute limit?

Right on. I have my other hosting solution and get your point totally. In the end just evaluate your tools and decide on what is most effective for you.

It's an absolute limit. Sorry for any confusion. We will make the necessary changes to make it more clear.

You didn't have a limit before, thats stupid. Make a cheaper plan, and I'll pay for it.

I agree, I'd prefer to pay a one off, Im a student and adding another cost to my monthly bill is not something that I'd like to do,

You mentioned you are a student. Would you happen to have a .edu email from your school? If so, we can get you a steeply discounted Webflow plan.

@callmevlad not every school has it's email with .edu... My college has login@bydgoszcz.wsinf.edu.pl email which is uncredibly useless and we still recieve emails from school to our private email.

I'm with some of the guys above: I've already paid for the domain to GoDaddy and I'd like to have an option to update the site once in 1-3 months. A more friendly price that would allow me to connect the GoDaddy domain to even a single page of yours would work great. Limited exports are absolutely fine - all I need is the great and flexible interface to build and maintain a responsive site. Could you guys please consider my input?

Hello there! After reading all the plans carefully, I think that this is not supported, so just checking.

My usecase: I have a good understanding in CSS/HTML and I am addicted/passionated about cloud-based browser-only services. So yes, I know I can create the site in WebFlow and export it to host it somewhere, however, I would like to have an ability to adjust the design every other month or so.

Also, I have the domain registered with GoDaddy for years.

What I would like is the basic ability to work on a single site (just like in the free plan), even with a single page and be able to connect it to the GoDaddy hosting. Paying 14$ monthly sounds a bit too much, free plan does not provide the custom domain at all. Am I correct till here please?

If so:
1. Down your roadmap, could you consider providing a more friendly plan for individuals (like me, amateur photographer and sound producer)?
2. If not, can you please recommend about any option to host a single page with HTTP 302 redirect to mydomain.webflow.com, so I could direct my GoDaddy-purchased domain name to that redirect (that, in turn, will direct the user to mydomain.webflow.com)?

Again, I respect your pricing plans and I'd like to be a paying customer. Just thinking out loud. Hopefully, the questions are legitimate. Thanks anyways! Great great job you are doing guys.

Yeah @BreakPhreak you're right we only offer connecting to your custom domains on a paid plan.

Again, I respect your pricing plans and I'd like to be a paying customer. Just thinking out loud. Hopefully, the questions are legitimate. Thanks anyways! Great great job you are doing guys.

These are great questions! Right now to keep things simpler we have a plan for 1 site that includes custom domain hosting, which you mentioned, and some other plans for web designers. We are always thinking about improvements to our pricing plans, but for now I would recommend going with our Micro plan.

Hello and thank you for such a great project. I'm beginner in Webflow, and trying to choose the right paying plan, so could you please explain, how many independent websites with custom domains I can create, publish and host in each Plans? Actually I need to make and host 3 websites with different custom domains, can I do so on Micro Plan? Sorry it's not so obvious in Plans explanations. Thank you

Hi @maximyasnyi,

I assume you want to make 3 private websites, that only you can view the designs for correct? If so, the Personal plan is the best choice smile The micro plan allows for 1 private site, while the Personal plan allows you to host up to 20 sites smile Here is more information on pricing and plan information: http://webflow.com/pricing

I hope this helps,

Cheers, Dave

Hello Dave! Thank you. I meant 3 public open sites with different domain names, not for me only at all smile So can I buy Personal, create 3 (or more) sites, add three domains (to each of them) and be happy with that?

Hi @maximyasnyi, yep you are exactly correct smile Cheers, Dave

Hello Webflow,
I'm loving using your product. I've learned a ton in just the few months I've been working with it, and I see the potential to produce truly exceptional sites. I find the pricing packages very fair for designing, but I'm wondering if you'll be adding a bulk hosting plan soon? I'd like to be able to continue to service websites for my clients for a set, hopefully low, yearly fee like $70. The current hosting prices make that a losing proposition. I can get a discount hosting package from another site for $9 a month with these features:

Unlimited Websites
Unlimited Space
Unlimited Bandwidth
500 Email Accounts
25 MySQL Databases (1 GB ea.)

But, your hosting is much better! I'd much rather host through your site, any help in sight?

Thank you for creating and maintaining such a incredible product,
Molly
