Overall Rating: 8 / 10 (Very good)

Sitey, sister company to WebsiteBuilder.com, SiteBuilder.com and Sitelio.com, gets high marks on its ease of use and polished designs; however, their lack of clarity about their background, security measures, pricing and billing practices, and customer service are serious drawbacks.

Sitey Price & Subscription Model

Price and Subscription Model - 8 / 10

Sitey only features shared hosting options. At the cheapest end, it offers the option of a free five-page website with very basic features and limited support. In this case, the domain name would include Sitey's name, and ads will be featured on the site. The paid options include a starter pack, a pro, and an e-commerce site that all include a free domain name (if you choose the yearly option, not monthly), ad credits and free hosting.

Subscription Details

Sitey advertises introductory rates of $6.15-$10.75 per month if you sign up for yearly plans (at least 12 months). If signing up for a monthly subscription, the free domain name is not included in the price. To get the final, non-introductory rate, the user has to start signing up for a website and provide personal information. Please note that the special introductory rate will apply only for an "initial term" and the term is only defined once you are in the process of signing up. Sitey also can charge your renewal fees up to 15 days before the account is due to be renewed. Once the initial introductory rate is over, they can charge your account for the full amount of the term you chose up front.

Subscription Fine Print

Term of Services. The initial term of the Services purchased by you will be for the time period set forth in the registration form presented to you when you order the Services (the "Initial Term"). Unless you cancel prior to the end of the Initial Term or as otherwise stated in a notice sent to you at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of your then-current term, the Services will automatically renew for successive periods of equal length as the Initial Term (each a “Renewal Period”). You acknowledge, agree, and authorize us to automatically bill the applicable fee and/or charge your credit card or other payment method on file up to fifteen (15) days prior to the end of each Renewal Period, unless you terminate or cancel the Services prior to such charge as provided in this section. The “Term” of this Agreement shall include the Initial Term and all Renewal Periods, if any.

Sitey Customer Experience

Customer Experience - 8 / 10

Sitey is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau and does not appear on TrustPilot. Other review websites show numerous complaints regarding billing practices and customer service. The only way to get support from them is through email or chat. We were not able to find a phone number for customer support and the billing assistance number led to a busy signal.
