Prices:

Aside from Weebly’s basic Free plan, their hosting starts at $8.00/month. As of right now, you can get shared hosting with BlueHost for just $2.95/month. Therefore, unless you are going to use Weebly’s Free plan, which we’d only recommend for temporary sites, then BlueHost is the cheaper option.
