Happy Birthday to Jimdo... We turned two!

We're celebrating our 2nd birthday at Jimdo. Is it the "terrible 2s"? We don't think so... Maybe the "terrific 2s"! There's a lot to celebrate, including a really delicious cake and some exciting news to share.


A lot of great things have happened in the last two years. In a nutshell: Jimdo's now available in 7 different languages, is used by people in over 140 countries, and just set up the 500,000th site! We're really happy and lucky to be working with the Samwer brothers and the European Founders Fund (read all about it in the blog post). Our team is expanding by leaps and bounds -- 25 Jimdo enthusiasts at the latest count -- and we're still on the lookout for more (in our Hamburg office).


It's incredible and amazing for us to think about how Jimdo has developed over the last two years. Without our users, of course, none of this would have been possible. That's why we'd like to give you a biggest THANK YOU on this special day. Thank you for your encouragement, your suggestions, your feedback, and all your support!


As always, we're always excited to see your comments. Please let us know what you've liked over the last two years (or however long you've been using Jimdo), what you haven't liked, or just tell us whatever is on your mind!


All the best,


The Jimdo team






JimdoPro: Order Additional Domains & Email Directly on Your Site!

Good news for all the JimdoPro users out there - starting right now (or really since yesterday), you can start order add-ons like extra email addresses and additional domains right on your own Jimdo site!

How does it work?

Do you remember how you upgraded to JimdoPro? Once you're logged into your Jimdo site, the control panel on the right has the upgrade button. That upgrade button is back in your Site Admin. Click on it, and you'll see that it's now your gateway to more domains and more email accounts!

What can I order?

As you can see in the screenshot above, you can immediately order some of the add-ons that have previously only been available by contacting Jimdo support! Please note that these are add-ons like a 2nd (or 3rd) domain for your Jimdo site; you've still got everything that the JimdoPro package includes!


You can choose from the following extra options:

  • an additional domain
  • an additional email account
  • new and great for small businesses: the Email Package: 10 additional email accounts and 20 email forwarding addresses (aliases)! When you order the Email Package, we'll increase the storage for each account to one gigabyte!
