That’s close to what you’d pay for a 1 year WordPress subscription.
WordPress and Web.com are two similar solutions for your website problems. Similarities include a wide variety of supported platforms, support services, and reasonable pricing. However, this is where the important similarities stop. WordPress has a lot more functionality, especially when it comes to integrating 3rd party software such as Google Analytics, MailChimp, and so on.
Weebly is one of the most popular content management systems. Currently, it holds approximately 2% of the market share, with almost 400 thousand active websites.

One of the most appealing features of Zoho Sites is the fact that’s it’s 100% free. There are no hidden costs, no intrusive ads, and no page limits for your website. It also offers domain purchasing options – starting at €10, and 3 different add-ons, with various prices, that add more features to your website. Luckily for WordPress, the sheer amount and variety of plugins and integrations make it a better choice, even if the price tag is higher.
IMcreator is a new service that unfortunately offers a very limited amount of storage for website content: 50MB. It offers 70 different templates on which you can build your website, but each time you want to change the template, you’ll also have to rebuild the content that you’ve already created. Comparatively, you can easily change, swap, and edit your WordPress theme whenever you like, without having to worry about losing your content.
