What is an "Online Memorial"?

An Online Memorial is a tribute website dedicated to the life and memory of someone who has passed away. It allows to preserve and share your loved ones' legacy with friends and family.
Memorial sites usually include an Obituary and Timeline, telling the life story of your loved ones. It can include photos and video galleries to keep memories alive.
It is also a community space where friends and relatives can callaborate and share memories.

It is a space for legacy where life stories live forever.

Do you display ads on Memorial pages?

Never.
Online-Tribute.com relies solely on the "activation fee" ($5 / month or $70 one-off) to cover our costs: hosting, customer service, developers... We don't display any ad on your page and won't ever do it.
We pride ourselves on providing the most elegant Online Memorial webites - thus without any Coffins, Crocs or other disgraceful advertising.

Why do I have to pay - whereas other websites propose Memorials for free?

The websites proposing "free service" often rely on advertising or sell their consumer data.
They place ads on your Memorial page or use your data for commercial / marketing purposes.
Besides, they propose a "fake free service": limited features, maximum 5 photos in the gallery, no videos… You have to upgrade to a 'premium account' to use their service properly.
More importantly, they charge your contributors for various "widgets" when they posts: virtual flowers, candles, "lovekits", etc.

Online-Tribute.com is ad-free, every user is premium, everything is included: all the features, all the designs, with unlimited content.
We have to pay our developers to add new features, our designers to create new designs, our customer service agents - but also pay for hosting, photography rights, etc.

According to a study by the National Funeral Directors Association, the average cost of a funeral in the US was $7,848 in 2023. That is why we try to keep our fee ($5 / month or $70 one-off) as low as possible.

What is included in the $5 / month or $70 one-off fee?

Everything.
All features, dozens of design templates, professional backgrounds, etc.
Unlimited content: photos, videos, memory wall contributions, etc.
We won't ever ask you to pay any extra for premium features, additional content, add-on services, etc.
We also provide the best support to all users: we answer all requests within 24 hours.

Is there a limit to the number of Photos / Videos / Memories on the page?

No.
After activating your website, the Photos / Videos / Memories, but also Timeline events, Donations, etc. are unlimited. Simply.

How/when can I stop the "Monthly subscription"?

Can I edit my Memorial page after activating it?

Yes!
You can update your Memorial site anytime, even after activating it: changing or customizing the design, editing the info, adding/removing modules, etc.

How long will the Memorial website stay online?

Forever, with the $70 "one-off" option.
We are committed to keep your page forever and won't ever discontinue it.

If you choose the "monthly" option ($5 / month), your Memorial page will stay online for as long as your subscription is active.

Do contributors need to register to post?

No.
