The service offers three basic plans. Free plan allows you to create one website from key blocks, Personal (from $15/month) gives access to advanced functionality to create one website, and Business (from $25/month) allows you to create up to five websites, export the source code and use the full functionality of the service. When purchasing Personal and Business tariffs, the user receives a domain for free.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Tilda
Creating a website on Tilda has a several benefits:
- user-friendly interface and detailed instructions describing how to make a website on Tilda;
- a lot of templates for quick work;
- a large library of fonts and the ability to upload your own font;
- the ability to customize and independently create new blocks;
- the ability to create an online store on Tilda and connect online payments;
- working with multimedia: insert video/audio, add videos from YouTube and Vimeo;
- built-in CRM;
- fast page loading thanks to Lazy Load and CDN;
- search engine optimization tools;
- the ability to export the source code of the created website to run it on your own server independently of Tilda;
- integration of Tilda with other services — from social networks to connection of payment systems to the Tilda website.
The disadvantages of the service include identical one-page templates, which, even after customization, remain similar. To fully utilize the functionality of the platform, you need design skills.
Despite the ability to insert additional HTML blocks and scripts, users have no opportunity to modify the code of template blocks and perform complex integrations due to the limited functionality of the service.
When purchasing a paid plan, the user can create 1 or 5 websites with a limit of 500 pages. In addition, Tilda hosting space is limited to 1 GB. All these factors make it impossible to create a large online store, blog, etc.
