Freelance pricing plan

Hi guys,

I have a question concerning the pricing plans. I am just startung out as a web designer and webflow developer. I have set up my portfolio website with the free plan. I know that I have to sign up for a site plan. But in order to design websites for clients, do I have to sign up for an additional workspace plan?

Thank you in advance :blush:

Hey Timur,

On the free “Starter” workspace, the free “Starter” sites are very limited. You can build, but you won’t have the features needed to build an actual full site for a client. It’s enough to try out the features, but that’s about it.

To be able to develop a real site, you need to EITHER setup a paid workspace ( Freelancer is great ), or you need to setup hosting for the site. Either way, you’ll be able to get the features you need to do a real site build.

For the most part, I’d recommend you go the Freelancer plan approach, because you’ll almost certainly want to setup additional sites, and clone sites from Made in Webflow “cloneables” as part of your learning process. Without a paid workspace, you’ll be very limited in the number of unhosted sites you can have, and you’ll almost certainly run into problems there.

Once you’ve built the site, and setup hosting for it, you can downgrade your plan to free if you want to. When the site is on a hosting plan, you’ll have full access to that site’s feature set.

I’ve made some notes here to help explain the differences;

Thank you for your detailed reply. So that means in order to work as a freelancer with a portfolio website hosted here on webflow, I would have to sign up for a site plan as well as for a workspace plan, right?

I’m not sure what you’re describing, but each site you host with a custom domain will require a hosting plan. I have a freelancer plan, plus about 50 sites hosted on Webflow. If I was never going to build another one, and didn’t need my unhosted test sites anymore, I could revert my workspace to a free plan, and still be able to work on my 50 hosted sites as usual.
