Booking.com hosted website

Just wondering if any forumites have experience with the BC hosted website offer.  It's either at a flat monthly rate or as a relatively small commission rate.  If you have tried it, would very much like to hear your take on it.  Thank you, Kurt



We are looking at doing a total website revamp, our current one is done for us (inherited from previous owners) and is very old looking, not mobile friendly and no longer fits our profile. I am not HTML proficient so cannot take over control.

If the BDC offering is any good it would be nice know. Otherwise I'll be looking to a new provider along with training to handle the site myself thereafter.


Has nobody tried this feature?

Is the linking to BDC putting everyone off?

I think the hosting offer from BCD makes sense for small BnB's and solo operators that want a little bit more of an online presence.

However, as a bigger player you'll be much better off having your own website, with full control over:

  • Booking systems. Integrating directly with paypal or stripe means your total fees will be roughly 2.9% (+30 cents). 0% commissions.
  • Design. Page builders and templates can only get you so far, and quickly become outdated. Plus it's hard to stand out.
  • Speed. I have not tested the speed of BCD's hosting, but many offers like this are not the best value for money when it comes to loading speed of the website.
  • Extras like blog, adwords, SEO, tracking, etc.

Let me know if you have any questions about building your own website. I'm happy to help.


Many thanks for sharing your thoughts, Ragnar. Funny that no one who has actually used the BCD service has commented. Maybe no one is using it?
