Wix, Weebly, Squarespace and many other website platforms are proprietary property of their respective companies. Websites built using these platforms are not compatible with any other website hosting, and therefore must always be hosted by the respective company. Regardless of future pricing, performance or preference, these websites cannot be moved to any other hosting provider. WordPress, on the other hand, is a free and open-source platform.

Websites built using Wordpress can be freely moved between any hosting provider. Additionally, WordPress is constantly evolving with new editions and features.

Webnames customers can receive customer support directly from our in-house team, in addition to the team that created BoldGrid.

The free, non-hosted version BoldGrid does not include certain premium features or customer support. Websites built using the free version will also contain BoldGrid branding and links back to the BoldGrid website.
