  • Hostinger’s Business Website Builder plan starts from $2.99 per month
  • The Business Website Builder plan includes AI tools and ecommerce features

Hostinger, a popular website builder and hosting provider, has introduced a new plan for website builder customers. Hostinger previously only offered a single package for website building, wrapped up with its web hosting plans – pricing started from $2.99 per month, increasing if you wanted additional security or storage features.

Now, Hostinger offers two distinguished website builder plans:

  • Premium Website Builder – $2.99
  • Business Website Builder – $3.99

The Premium Website Builder plan is the cheapest option and offers essential features to help you get online, such as a free email address and email marketing tools. However, you’ll need the new Business Website Builder to unlock ecommerce functionality and Hostinger’s suite of AI tools.

Both plans come with Hostinger’s AI website builder but features like Hostinger’s AI Image Generator and AI Heatmaps are locked behind the $3.99 Business Website Builder plan.

Which Plan Should You Pick?

We recommend choosing the cheaper $2.99 Premium Website Builder if you want to build a simple or informational site – this is a great option for personal websites, portfolio websites, or resource-heavy sites, like blogs.

For online stores, you’ll need the $3.99 Business Website Builder plan instead. This plan lets you sell up to 500 products, manage bookings, and oversee your inventory from Hostinger’s dashboard. You’ll also unlock 20+ payment methods and Hostinger doesn’t charge any transaction fees.

The Business Website Builder plan is incredibly cheap, especially compared to more expensive ecommerce website builders which can cost around $30 per month. Because of this, we recommend the new plan for businesses looking to sell a small range of products. For larger or more established businesses, you’d be better off with a dedicated ecommerce builder, like Shopify.

Take a look at how Hostinger’s pricing differs between plans:

Plan Length Premium Website Builder Business Website Builder
1 Month $11.99 $13.99
12 Months (/mo) $3.19 $4.99
24 Months (/mo) $3.09 $4.49
48 Months (/mo) $2.99 $3.99

If you’re looking for a long-term commitment, the two-year subscription is your best option since you’ll save hundreds of dollars overall compared to paying for your website builder month-by-month. With the one-month subscription, you’ll also have to pay an additional $4.99 setup fee which can be avoided with the longer subscriptions.

No matter which plan you choose, you can get an additional three months for free.
