- Facebook has announced plans to launch its own free website builder and paid web hosting services to support small and medium-sized business during the pandemic.
Facebook is planning to launch its own free website builder and paid web hosting service. By investing in these new business tools, Facebook will directly compete with other website builders like Wix and GoDaddy.
Currently, the social media company is working with its partners to launch this service in the coming months.
The news about this new venture was officially announced in a recent blog post by Facebook.
The company believes that this service will particularly benefit small and medium-sized businesses which are looking for cost-friendly and reliable solutions.
The blog post explains that “businesses have varying technology needs and want choice in the companies they work with to host and manage customer communications, particularly with remote work increasing.”
While Facebook adds new shopping features to WhatsApp business, it hopes that its new hosting services will provide a new option for businesses to manage their customer communications.
