What do I need to get started?
Click here to view our website checklist; where you can learn how to get started with your new website in five easy steps.
Do I need a PayPal account to subscribe to Pewple?
PayPal is our preferred automated online payment and subscription processing provider due to their ease of use and reach, so a PayPal account will be required to subscribe and/or make payments to Pewple, automatedly.
Alternatively, you can contact us and setup a monthly payment arrangement with a representative over the phone.
What if I need multiple websites?
We would be happy to assist you. The only requirement is: Each website must have its own subscription. This simply means: You’ll need to establish a separate subscription or account for each website you’d like us to create.
Can I use multiple domains for one website?
Yes. If you would like to have more than one domain name “pointing” to your new website, this is possible. Let’s say that you have a domain with us (ex. MyWebsite.Org) and you would like to add another (ex. MyWebsite.Com), this is what you’ll need to do: 1. Acquire the additional domain name you want (ex. MyWebsite.Com). 2. You’ll then need to set the domain name to work as a conduit or forward to (MyWebsite.Org), administratively.
In doing so, if someone types in either domain, it will send them to your new website. Note: We do not need administrative access to the other domain(s) when the noted steps above are followed. Alternatively, we could set the forward for you by obtaining brief temporal administrative access to the domain name to do so.
Do you offer any alternative payment arrangements?
Yes. If it’s more convenient to pay quarterly (every three months), once every six (6) months or annually (once per year), via credit card, please click here.
Will I still own my domain name?
Yes! Your chosen domain name is always yours. Even if you decide to cancel your subscription with us.
How much creative control do I have over my new website?
A lot! All Pewple subscribers are asked to tell us what they want. All subscribers are asked to share up to three (3) website examples with us, so we can get an idea of what they like and why. Alternatively, subscribers can elect to give our team full creative freedom to design and build out their new custom website, also.

What is Pewple?
Pewple is a subscription-based service that offers custom web design and development, robust website security, unlimited updates and monthly hosting- all for one affordable monthly subscription. We proudly serve over 200 churches and organizations across the nation and we can do the same for you. Learn more about how we can create a new custom website for your church, faith-based organization or sole proprietorship today.
Example: If you’re a Local Church in need of a website; or if you have a website, but you’d like to have a new (or improved) one developed by us, please consider subscribing. We’d like to sound hip and technical by saying there’s more to it, but there isn’t. It’s really just that easy. With three (3) plans starting as low as $59/month, our subscription-based services meets every budget.
What does the name "Pewple" mean?
We believed that “Pewple” best described our objective: Assist the local church in getting people to church. Thereby, making a connection between pews and people. Pew + People is “Pewple.”
Does my church need a website?
Absolutely. All churches should have their own web-presence independent of unrelated clutter, comments and posts, unfiltered advertisements, emojis and more found scattered across most social media platforms. A website gives you the ability to offer your visitors a custom website experience with relative content and various engagement functionality – all in a monitored online environment that you control.
It is also important to note that social media is not a suitable replacement for a website- nor was it ever meant to be. Hence, the reason why users are only given one (1) page per platform.
Do I have to "qualify" for Pewple services?
We understand that our business model saves you money. But, we want to ensure that those savings are allotted for our target demographic: Smaller churches (also referred to or described as “The Local Church”). So, if one of the following describes your church, organization or small business, you qualify for our services:
The Local Church: A small church or ministry with an active membership of 200 or less.
Organizations: A faith-based organization that represents and/or is made up primarily of Local Churches as described herein.
Small Businesses / Sole-Proprietorship: A sole-proprietorship or small business with up to three full or part-time employees.
Important: Your church, ministry or organization must also be situated within the United States of America to qualify for and to subscribe to our service at this time.
Can I replace my existing website?
We’d be more than happy to assist you with replacing an existing website with a new one.
Please Contact Us to tell us more about your project.
Can I cancel my subscription with Pewple?
Yes, you may cancel your subscription at anytime. If you cancel your subscription less than twelve (12) months into your service with us, however, you may incur a one-time early termination fee equal to one (1) month’s subscription of the canceled service plan. Click here to learn more.
Important: If your subscription with Pewple is canceled (for any reason), your church, ministry, small business or organization will not be able to resubscribe to our service(s).
Does Pewple accept donations?
Yes, we do. This is a new feature that we recently added for our new site release in hopes that it may assist us in doing what we love to do for the Lord’s Church. Quality, educated professionals are worth their wage. So, when you’re paying an employee an hourly rate that exceeds the cost of a month of service; needless to say: faith is a big factor in what we do. And though we’re doing just fine, we do invite you to make a small donation, if you like. All donations will go directly to the continued growth and development of our mission. Simply, click here if you’re led to share. Thanks.
