Will my website have ads on it? top
No, not unless you put them there yourself. We don't serve ads on any website built with vFlyer Sites.
How much does it cost? top
There's no cost to create a website. If you want to publish a site, then you'll need to purchase a site subscription, which start at $12/month, and current vFlyer Marketing subscribers can bundle their services for a discount. View pricing information.
How do vFlyer Sites subscriptions work? top
When you sign up for a subscription, you are purchasing a site license that allows you to publish a website, which vFlyer will host for you. You have the option of purchasing either a monthly or annual subscription plan. With an annual subscription, you will receive a free domain credit, which you can use to reserve a domain name for your website. In either case, your subscription will automatically renew at the start of each new billing period. For annual subscriptions, you will receive an email a couple weeks before your subscription is set to renew.
If I upgrade to a higher subscription plan or buy a bundled plan, will I be credited for what I already paid? top
Yes. When you upgrade your account to a higher subscription or bundled plan, the amount for the unused portion of your current billing period will automatically be credited toward your new subscription. If you sign up for a bundled plan, a new subscription will begin on that date for both vFlyer Marketing and Sites, with the unused portion of your previous payment automatically applied.
Can I create more than one site in my account? top
Yes. Although each subscription plan comes with one site license, you may purchase additional licenses for a discounted rate. Please call (224) 263-0905 x2 and one of our Customer Success Reps will get you set up with another site license.
Can I buy a domain name for my website? top
Yes. After publishing your site, you will be given the opportunity to search for a domain name and register it on the spot. Every vFlyer Sites annual subscription comes with one domain credit; otherwise, domain names cost $12.50 per year.
I already own a domain name. Can I associate it to the website I create? top
Sure! It's simple to map a domain name you registered through another service to your website. All you need to do is enter the domain name in your domains page, then update the DNS settings through your domain registrar. And we're here to help along the way if you need it.
Can I cancel my subscription at any time? top
Yes. To cancel your subscription, just email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the email address associated to your vFlyer account and when you want us to cancel the subscription. There are no refunds for partial months or domain name reservations.
Can I downgrade to a lower subscription plan? top
Absolutely. Simply contact us at email@example.com and let us know which subscription plan you want and we will take care of the rest. Your subscription will be downgraded at the start of the next billing period.
