I’ve been using free plans to test out and put together a site for myself, but I’ve hit some of the limits (Site and Account).
I had 2 projects (2 versions of my new site, using a free template - just trying to get used to Webflow and teach myself some things).
I wanted to keep copies of both free template projects as reference, and to help build out the final version. I found I wanted to use a paid template for the final version, so kept both free template projects as versions, upgraded to a Lite Account so I could have all 3 - thinking I could finalize everything on the paid template version, then purchase a CMS Site plan to publish it to my own domain.
Then I ran into the CMS item limit…
I’m wondering - maybe instead of getting the Lite Account plan, I should have just gotten the CMS Site plan for the paid template project, and finished out on that. Then I wouldn’t need the Lite Account plan.
But - once I purchase the CMS Site plan, will it automatically be published somewhere? Or, not until I hit the Publish Button in Designer.
Also - if it’s easier to see the finalized version of the site by publishing it, I don’t mind keeping the site on Webflow as a subdomain (or however it is) until I’m ready - but then I need to ultimately redirect it to my own subdomain. Would that be a problem? (to clarify - my intent is to have the CMS site hosted by Webflow, but pointed to my own domain)
And if all I need is a CMS Site plan, I’ll go ahead and do that, and contact support for a refund on the Lite Account since it seems I may not need that.
I hope this makes sense…
Any help in clarifying and making me a little more smart on this, would be greatly appreciated.
