    I’ve been using Webydo for nearly 5 years now and I absolutely love it. I only have two or three clients but Webydo meets the needs of them all. I was a bit of a novice web designer when I signed up but didn’t find it all that difficult to learn the ins and outs of Webydo’s interface.Their customer service is great and I have never had a problem getting responses to my emails and queries. I’ve received refunds on products when requested without issue.I do have concern that they may go out of business any day. They are not active on Social Media nor do I ever see paid ads anywhere. They used to reach out every now and then but I never hear from them at all unless they are responding to a question or issue.The most annoying part of Webydo is that it’s not very friendly with browsers that are not Chromium based. And not just for actually building your website but also for displaying it after it is published. My sites look like crap on iOS and the mobile version of Firefox. It’s extremely annoying that my sites look crappy on Apple mobile devices and Safari.Other than that, I’ll keep using Webydo as long as they are around. I hope it’s for a long while. I don’t want to rebuild my sites again using stinking Squarespace.

    Frustrated right now. I Made updates to all the pages after my website girl did such a beautiful job and now from the mobile view is such a mess. Why didn’t it update like the main website did? Gallery slide shows look good,The Door style pics page are still a work in progress but look at all other pages in the mobile view compared to regular monitor. Please check it out. I hope there’s an update to the software to solve that problem?Angie

    Highway Robbery – Hadn’t used it in a year but they charged my another year – $ 420.00. When their charge posted, I contacted one of the few employees left and got this response:”Webydo does not offer refunds on renewals – what I can do is turn off the renewal of your subscription so it does not charge you again next year.”Be aware. They are wolves in sheeps clothing.

    Back in 2015 Webydo was implemented as our full-on web solution. Needless to say, it was a mistake.Someone sold my boss the idea that this was the way to goLook, the thing is that all these services have limitations. By accepting to work with their services you are passing the same limitations to your clients. And client’s request have no limitations.As a matter of fact, I lost a couple of clients because I just couldn’t help them due to the limits.There was no blog feature to publish news or content on the fly. Mobile features were not there…as clients now demand it, we are finding that we have to go back and redesign a lot of things. Webydo approaches mobile with adaptive design. Which means you have to literally go and move elements by hand. There is a tool to help you, but it doesn’t always work. And a lot of time things on mobile shift your design on the desktop… it gets irritating fast.Yes there is customer support, but every time I have a question I get an answer the next day. If it doesn’t answer my question, I have to wait an extra day. Eventually it gets resolve but in the meantime the client has to wait 2 or 3 days for results.I think that if you are thinking of joining the front end web design train, you need to do a bit of hw and be willing to get your hands dirty. Don’t wait or expect for other companies to do it for you, because they will do it under their terms. Or maybe identify which clients you want to design for that meet exactly under these limitations and go after them… but sooner or later Why go with you if Wix, squarespace, and other cheaper solutions can accomplish the same thing.

      I took a trial and when it was finished I have been bothered weekly, by phone and email to join webydo. Very “pushy” and unpleasant feeling.

        I signed up for a free test account in dec 2015 and was impresseed with the interface and templates. Being a small design and marketing company we host our customer’s sites in our own servers so I was focused only on the design features of the interface. When a representative of Webydo contact me by phone in my language to explain me all the features I was impressed again! But this representative assured me that I can easily download my designs to host them elsewhere whenever I want. He offer me “50 sites” so I pay my anual plan inmediatly although I was emphatic about the fact that I was not interested on webydo’s hosting service at all.To my surprise, the “downloaded” code generated by Webydo is full of garbage and dependant of Webydo’s javascripts and classes. Forms won’t work at all outside Webydo and the “download” is not instantanly. You have to submit your requirement and they send you the zipped files by email. I found later that such “download” was simply a crawl of the published site on webydo’s subdomains and the structure and coding was unmantainable.Also to my surprise, the “50 sites” turned out to be “50 DOWNLOADS” instead, so if you have to fix something like an image or a footer text, you have to go back to webydo interface, re-publish and ask again for a download… as your download’s counter goes down.We end up using Webydo to generate visual proposals to our customers, but in any case, once the project was sold, we end up rebuilding the site from scratch in order to have a decent mantainable code and contact forms that work, so by now I only login ocasionally to see if there’s a new template or something interesting.When I was trying to get a refund they finaly explained more clearly: “think of webydo as an incredible full flagged hosted CMS, not as a design tool”. Lesson learned.

          Similar to what Marc posted above, very easy to use to set up a basic website. They make it difficult to cancel your account (nothing online, must make a phone call or send email and I have yet to get an official note of cancellation). When my account was forced to roll over to the next year they would not cancel and refund anything, even a monthly amount for the 11 months I would not be using their services. When I try to contact the financial department I get pushed off or told that I will be contacted, it’s been a week of calling every day and no response.

            I am not a designer. I took out a plan to build a website for my small business and found webydo to be easy to learn and user friendly. Unfortunately I cannot recommend them due to unethical pricing tactics and false advertising. When I first joined (mid 2015), I was able to sign up on a $9 per month plan. Their current cheapest plan is $90 per month (admittedly for an upgraded account as they no longer allow single site plans). That is a ten fold increase. Further, when I tried to upgrade my account, Webydo would not honour the prices listed in my account online but wanted to charge significantly higher prices.Can you really trust Webydo when their prices seem to change so drastically and they will not honour the pricing listed in your account?? It is a waste of time learning how to use their software if you are not going to be able to use it long term.
