Who pays for hosting before the website is transfered?

Hi everyone

I am new to Webflow and I am already very excited with it.
I was wondering what’s the best practice with the hosting plan in case the website is getting transferred to the client once it’s ready?

Imagine I need to use custom code or any other non-free feature. That means I will need to purchase a site plan.

  • Do I pay it myself and then include it in the total cost for the project?
  • What if the work on the project takes 3 months - do I pay the hosting fee for 3 months before I transfer the project to the client?
  • Or do I ask my client to purchase a site plan so I can have all the necessary features?
  • What if the client does not want to pay upfront or use client billing?
  • What if I am working on 10 projects at the same time - do I need to pay the hosting for each of them until I hand it out / transfer it to clients?

I couldn’t find a clear answer to this, sorry if it’s already answered somewhere.

Thanks for your help.
