Honeycommb vs OnlyFans

Honeycommb is a powerful, independent alternative to OnlyFans where creators have total ownership, control, and more to offer their fans resulting in greater revenue.

Thinking about adding Honeycommb to your creator revenue stack alongside OnlyFans, replacing OnlyFans, or doing research to understand which platform is best for you to earn from?

If you’re wondering what the differences are between Honeycommb and Only Fans, we put together this no-nonsense overview...


OnlyFans is known primarily a service used by sex workers to distribute pornography but it is also used minimally by content creators like fitness instructors. Creators who use OnlyFans have to accept the reputation the brand brings to their own brand. With Honeycommb your brand stands alone. From your own custom domain to mobile apps that sit in the apps stores (and must adhere to Apple and Google guidelines), Honeycommb is a white-lable solution where only your brand exists.


OnlyFans is a simple content subscription service where subscribers can consume content through creator pages, their personalized feed, and can interact with creators through messaging. With over two millions creators on OnlyFans, creators compete with each other for attention and revenue. OnlyFans does not provide a space for creators fans to exist and interact.

Honeycommb provides a dedicated social network under your brand just for you and your community of fans. Even for 18+ content creators, fans with a shared interest enjoy interacting with others who share that interest. This alone provides immediate and constant value to your network, relieving you of the burden to constantly post and interact with your fans.

Ownership & Control

OnlyFans subscribers are OnlyFans users. OnlyFans creators have no access or rights to their subscribers in any way other than interactions OnlyFans allows. Creators must adhere to OnlyFans terms and guidelines, and they can change whenever OnlyFans feels like changing them, like they did in 2021. OnlyFans algorithm promotes top OnlyFans earners, making it challenging new creators to be seen or subscribed to.

With Honeycommb, creators have total ownership over all the content, data, and information generated within their network. The fan-base a creator grows in their Honeycommb network is theirs and their alone. The terms and guidelines of a network are under the complete control of the network owner, not Honeycommb. Your house, your rules.

Honeycommb comes with a dedicated Control Center where any number of administrators can customize, monitor, grow, engage, and monetize the entire community with ease.

More to Offer (and earn from)

OnlyFans founder described OnlyFans as Instagram with a “pay” button. It’s a good summation of what the service provides; a profile for creators that fans can follow or subscribe to for a fee. Fans only get value when creators post new content and fans have no guarantees of future delivery (they’ve learned many OnlyFans creators don’t deliver).

With Honeycommb, creators deliver constant value to their members by providing a dedicated space for them and their fans to connect and interact whenever they like. All members have profiles, and depending on how a creator customizes their network, can have many built-in privileges. Creators can provide any number of subscription products to their members and leverage premium content, premium groups, premium events, and premium features as features of their subscription products, leaving lots of room for creativity when developing subscription offerings.

All-in-one Social Network

OnlyFans was built for content distribution and consumption through a basic feed and messaging. With over two million creators on OnlyFans, each has to compete for attention and revenue from OnlyFans members. The tools provided are minimal and there is no ability to add-on or integrate other capabilties.

Honeycommb is an all-in-one platform where creators can quickly and easily launch their own *independent*, full-featured social network. An all-in-one approach means features like rich media hosting, livestreaming, groups, subscriptions, and events come built-in. If needed, the Honeycommb platform also provides custom integrations and automation through webhooks and tools like Zapier. Creators get a dedicated Web app and Control Center for customizing and managing their social network along with the ability to add mobile apps any time. It can be a simple channel for subscriptions and content delivery or it can be much more.

Create Your Network

If you want to organize and engage a group of people of any kind, Honeycommb is a fit. No code. No drag. No drop. Just name it, create it, and customize it with simple clicks in a sweet Control Center that gives you all the power to launch the independent social network you’ve always dreamed of.
