Today, very appropriately falling on Towel Day (May 25th), saw the introduction of the next biggest thing on WordPress.com: the Starter Plan at US$ 60/year, joining the 2-month old Pro plan at US$ 180/year. (*See note below.)
Head on over to the support Guide to read about what’s included.
You might have noticed that the newly updated Pricing Page, unlike the Guide, no longer mentions any information at all about free websites. Whatever. Pass the beers, Ford; it’s almost time for Earth’s destruction to make way for a hyperspace bypass.
Sharp-eyed WordPress.com members will immediately notice features “missing” in the Starter plan, most glaringly No Ads. I guess that will be included in the upcoming, sometime-in-the-future, a la carte options they keep talking about.
Meanwhile, hit me up with some Vogon poetry. My brain is already leaking out my ears.

As always, the information in this post is correct as of publication date. Changes are inevitable.
*Note: From 31 March until 20 July 2022, WordPress.com offered the Pro and Starter plans. These plans were retired on 21 July 2022 in favor of the original Personal, Premium, Business and eCommerce plans. 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺!
