I recommend, the middle one- Jimdo Pro Plan for beginners. Don’t choose a free plan. Why? Do you want to know?
You must read this one before building any website :-  Free Website Builder |Top 14 Checklists You Should Know.

$7.5/month plan is the best one for beginners. You need to pay for 1 year. That means, total $90/year you need to pay.
(Oh..! My yearly party bill is nearly 100 times more than this.) Once you ordered your plan, you will get a chance to register your domain name (website name or website home page URL). I wanted to name my website as I typed in the search bar and clicked on check availability. But it is already registered by someone.

Once you see available, then a next button will appear. Click on the next. You will see payment options. You can pay with your Paypal or any credit or debit card. At the end of billing, you will see the below question –“How did you hear about us?”. Select price comparison website. They think you are very price conscious. They don’t want to lose any customers. Because they need to show an increased user rate to their shareholders. So they will offer huge discounts. (I already worked on website builder related companies for a few months. This is how they told me to manage customers)

While billing, Jimdo will ask you how you know about Jimdo. Select price comparison website to get offers.
