So I designed a site thinking I would be able to use custom domain hosting for $5 only to be met with “The site uses CMS features and cannot be used with basic hosting” - It would be awesome if basic hosting included the ability to use dynamic elements in the design and allowed designers to access collections from the internal designer interface only… and the $10 charge would only apply if designers needed a content editor account (hopefully multiple accounts) and access to the external CMS interface, white labelling, and other client based features which I am sure are in the works. This would encourage eventual hosting with Webflow and provide a graduated way to get there:
- Free Hosting w/ or w/o dynamic elements
- $5 Basic Hosting w/ or w/o dynamic elements, and
- $10 CMS hosting w/ or w/o dynamic elements but including external CMS access and client management features
- Possibly another tier if you have additional premium features in your pipeline???
It helps if you think of dynamic elements as a core feature and if you think of the ability to edit these dynamic elements (and manage clients) via the CMS as a service.
Not sure how clear all of that was…
