Webflow Hosting gives you access to the fastest and most scalable hosting technology on the market — just one click away. By adding a site plan to any site, you can point a custom domain to your Webflow site and have it securely stored on Amazon Web Servers and delivered over the Fastly Network.

Site plans are billed separately from your Webflow Workspace plan. To manage your Workspace plan, read Managing your Webflow plan.

What are the benefits of Webflow hosting?

All sites hosted on Webflow take advantage of a hosting infrastructure built to handle millions of page views a day, with less than 100ms response time. Sites hosted with Webflow give you a completely managed solution, so you don't have to worry about applying security patches, downtime, or scalability. We handle it all for you!  Learn more about Webflow Hosting.

Our hosting product is built on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS), with several redundancies in place. Our Amazon servers are regularly monitored for unauthorized access and audited. Your website also benefits from two Tier 1 CDNs (content delivery networks), so it's guaranteed to load fast all over the world. See detailed uptime reports at status.webflow.com.

We also include free SSL certificates with Webflow hosting. Google ranks sites with an SSL certificate higher and browsers do not show non-secure warnings to visitors on websites served on HTTPS.

What are the site plans offered by Webflow?

Currently, Webflow offers 3 website plans and 3 Ecommerce plans. All plans except for the Starter and Basic plans include access to the Webflow Editor which lets you and content editors update existing content and create new content right on your live website. The Starter and Basic plans include the Webflow Editor but you won’t be able to invite content editors to work with you.

Do Webflow-hosted sites work in China?

Your sites might not load as expected in China due to an access restriction that is outside of our control. The "Great Firewall of China" blocks foreign websites, apps, social media, and other online resources like Google fonts deemed inappropriate by Chinese authorities. So, some sites or content/assets on your site may not load in China sometimes or all of the time due to the firewall . ​

To ensure your site loads as expected for your Chinese audience, make sure you don't use services like Google Fonts and Google Maps, social embeds like Twitter and Facebook, Youtube, etc…). Also, export the site and host it on a CDN in China with locally loaded assets.

Does Webflow offer email hosting?

Webflow does not provide email hosting services. You can keep your current email hosting service (MX records) or set up a new one through any email service provider.

If you buy a new Google Domain through Webflow in your site's publishing tab, you can set up Google Workspace as well. Just follow the standard flow you'd go through when registering a new domain with Google, and you'll see the option to set up Google Workspace during the checkout process.

If you don't need to buy a new domain but are still looking to set up Google Workspace for a domain you manage, head over to the Google Workspace site to get started.
