Unlike GoDaddy Website builder (1,500 + themes), Jimdo comes with ONLY 16 themes.
Support for the cheapest plan can take 1-2 business days and they don’t have a phone to call (in case you need urgent help)
Our website performance isn’t good as others – 49 outages in the last 6-months and a speed of 917ms. Nothing too good…
PROS of Jimdo
Pricing was advertised as $9.00/month and the actual total was exactly $108 for one year. No hidden fees and fairly low cost.
We managed to get our test site up and running within less than 20 minutes.
Extra email accounts are very cheap (compared to other website builder software), costing only $1/mo a piece.
Similarly to others, they offer their users a free domain for 1 year (renews at $20/year afterwards) and their cheapest online store plan is affordable, too – $19/mo.
Yes and no…
The initial design is very clean and neat. It’s more contemporary than some of the ones we’ve already reviewed here.
They offer cheap email accounts and unlimited products on their e-commerce plans. Their website builder is simple and straightforward.
However, the biggest issue is with their speed and uptime – it’s slightly unreliable. And the fact that they only have 16 templates and your customization options are limited to only relatively basic changes.
Great for a one-page-website. Need something bigger? You’d be better off with Wix.
