I'm confused about Website Builder InstaPage and GoCentral. I have a whole bunch of free credits. Are any of these free beyond the first year? Can i use my credits for future years or is one year the limit? Used to be that some website builders on godaddy were free for ever. is that no longer the case? Thanks

Hi @successm. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! I can understand how this would be confusing. We have had numerous free product promotions over the years. We used to have a product called Instapage that came free with domain registrations. If you had any credits for those, they would have been changed to InstantPage (GoCentral) credits. Those credits would be the same as the free GoCentral trial that's available on our website (free for one month). There was also a time when we offered a free 5-page Website Builder for domain registrations. If you have one of those accounts, they will be free for as long as you still have the domain the free credit was used for. Keep in mind that in time, this type of builder will also likely be phased out, though I'm not sure when that will happen. Hope that helps.
that doesn't tell us much of the needed info, such as it says its free but its not? does four credits been four sites or four pages? in one site?
does it expire?
when will it expire ?
what happens when they expire?
if i use them to make a site, will the site expire?
if the site does not expire, then what?
is it a trial and the software will delete itself along with my site after the trial?
what happens after trial period, will they start charging us?
if they will start charging us, how much will it cost?
if they start charging us for using the credits, will they at least inform us? or will they just add the balense to our yearly account deduction?
please someone help answer these, so we can understand exactly what we are signing up to, instead of using the inbuilt cpanel software like wordpress, etc.
Hi @WillG. I'll do my best to answer your questions.
For the remaining questions, I'm going to answer with free website builder credits in mind. These are different than Websites + Marketing free trials.
Here you seem to be asking about Websites + Marketing:
Here again, you are referring to credits, so I will answer in regard to older Website builder credits.
If you have further questions, please reach out to a GoDaddy Guide so they can help you get things figured out.
