What is The Cost of a DIY Website?
Duda is one of the more expensive website builders available on the market. There are three options of plans – Basic, Team, and Agency. (There is also a Custom plan that comes with all the features of the highest tier plan plus advanced features, and is only recommended to those who expect a high volume of traffic.) As the name states, the basic plan offers basic features, but does include multi-language website option and access to Duda’s content library. As you move up, more features are unlocked. The Team and Agency plans offer team collaboration and client management features. Agency goes a bit further by also offering infrastructure services, including API integration to assist with creating instant websites and exporting websites.
When you create your Duda account, you will automatically receive a 30-day free trial. For individuals who sign up for the Basic plan, for those 30 days, they will have access to Team-level features. At the end of the 30 days, those on the Basic plan can choose to upgrade (Duda makes it easy), or revert to the Basic plan and lose a number of features, including upgrading to a premium store or publishing a mobile-only website.
If you are interested in opening an online shop, you need to purchase Duda’s e-commerce plan separately. The first 10 products are free, but you will need to pay monthly for either 100 products or up to 2,500. Also, with the free option, you only get two categories. The paid plan allows for unlimited categories. All plans come with unlimited storage. Paid options also come with a myriad of other features, including catalog management, promotions, order and data management, tracking and reporting, and payment options.
