Please be aware that we have made some adjustments to the pricing of our hosting plans.
Until now, we have offered a base monthly price for all our hosting products, with discounts for longer term billing periods. For example, the Basic plan has been £2.99 +VAT per month, but £29.99 +VAT per year, giving a discount for the longer term.
From the 1st of December 2019 we are no longer offering the discounts, which means some customers will pay slightly more for their hosting upon renewal. Again using the Basic plan as an example, the base price will not change from £2.99 +VAT, but the new annual price will be 12 months at £2.99 +VAT per month, thus making the annual cost 35.88 instead of the £29.99 it has been for the last 15 years. An increase of £5.89 per year (49p per month) before VAT. With VAT added the cost of this plan will increase to £43.06 per year from the previous £35.99.
We've had to revise our pricing and remove the discounts due to the fact that our costs have increased in the last couple of years but we hadn't thus far increased our prices, so we hope that our customers will be understanding and appreciate that this is necessary in order to keep providing the high quality service and support that we currently do.
In addition to the above, we are also no longer offering a free domain registration with new hosting orders.
We are scrapping the quarterly, six monthly and two yearly billing options and offering only monthly or annual billing.
This means that on the 1st of December if you are currently on a quarterly or six monthly billing cycle, you will be switched to monthly for your next renewal and if you are on a two yearly billing cycle, this will be changed to annual for your next renewal.
You may also notice that the names of our hosting plans have changed on our website. What was the Basic plan is now the Premier plan. Plus becomes Premier Plus and Advanced is now Premier Advanced. The main difference between these plans is that the new "Premier" hosting products are running from our new hosting platform.
Over the coming months, all customers will be moved from older servers onto our newly built platform. When your account is moved, your hosting plan will change to the new naming format. We will be contacting customers closer to the time to arrange the server transfers.
