Web.com does not offer a free trial option, probably because it’s not quite like any other website builder, but more of a hosting company that offers website building services.
Website Builder: With a basic introductory plan you’ll get a domain name, full access to the template library and gallery of stock images. This plan is ideal for users who are just getting started in website building. The first billing cycle cost is $1.95.
Website and Online Marketing: This option is more appropriate for startups, freelancers and small businesses seeking marketing tools to drive traffic to their site. In addition to what’s included in the Website Builder plan, you’ll get a business profile in local search engines, ranking your site in top search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, plus SEO consulting services with a Web.com expert team. The first billing cycle cost is $2.95.
Website, Marketing and Store: For those looking to launch an online store or enable payments, this is the plan for you. It includes all of the services and features included in the first two plans, plus the capacity to sell up to 500 different products, accept credit card payments, and a powerful email marketing tool. The first billing cycle cost is $3.95.
All three packages include a 60-minute consultation with a MyTime Support expert.
