Does the new $10/year apply to existing hostees?
« on: April 30, 2013, 08:30:00 AM »
I just saw: http://stars.bz/hosting.php
And it says $1/month or $10/year.
Is this a different package or the same one existing hostees have?
If so, will the current hostees still be charged the ~$50 or the new $10?

I'm just confused and wondering.
Thanks!
Well, well, well.

This is actually a brand new plan. And it is per website, meaning you can only have one domain on the plan.

Though I think this will work out cheaper for most people.

For instance, you have 3 fansites. One the old plan you would be paying $4.95 p/month. With the new plan, it's only $3 p/month.

In addition to that, each account will have it's own private Cpanel access, and therefore comes with it's own  resource limits.

On your old plan, all your domains are added as Addon Domains, and therefore constrained under a single account's resource limits.

Currently, every account is allocated a maximum of 1 GB of memory and 1 CPU core. If you have 3 domains created as Addon-Domains, all your sites combined will only have 1 GB of memory and 1 CPU core, shared amongst them all.

However, with our new plan, you would make 3 separate orders, and every domain is considered a separate account and will therefore have 1 GB of memory and 1 CPU core available to each of them.

Thus you get 3 times the available resources allocated, and at a lower price.

If you wish to change to the new plan just let me know and I can take care of it :)

This sounds very good, but I have another question because it applies to me... What if I bought two domains for one site?
Well, well, well.

Sorry for butting in here guys! May I ask a question Lindsay - if I don't plan on having another domain for my site, would I be best of switching to the new plan or staying on the current one? Also, on the new plan, does the 1 domain thing include subdomains or not? (Silly question, but oh well haha!)

If you are referring to parked domains, they are still unlimited. :)

If you are only using a single domain, then you are better off switching to the new plan. Instead of paying $4.95, you only pay $1. :)

And yes, you will have unlimited subdomains. And it's not a silly question.


If either of you wish to switch plans, just post here or open a support ticket.

If I switch to the new plan and it's $40, will I have to pay the difference from the $25 promo or will the promo still be intact for the remainder of the year?
Well, well, well.

The launch promotion doesn't apply to the new plan, but that's okay, you don't have to pay any extra for your 4 sites.

I thought you only had 3. I forgot about your latest one. :)

Thank you so much, Lindsay!
Than I would like to switch to the new plan, please.

Also, I do have 3. The newest one is Sara's, but she's going to pay back for the hosting for her's, I hope that's alright we're doing this? If not, I'll contact her about it. (We did this before the new plan was posted.)

Yes that's fine Jennifer, I'll start moving them to their own separate Cpanel's now.

I'll put Sara's one in your client account as well. If she signs up for a new hosting account in future I can just move it to her client account then. It will remain paid for for the year.

You will start to receive welcome emails as the new plans are setup for your domains.

Hi Lindsay! I'd like to be switched to the $1 plan. I received my invoice for the $4.95 one a few hours ago. Should I let you change my plan to the $1 before I made the payment for it? :)

I have changed your account to our new plan, and a new invoice has been issued for the lower price.

Anything else please let me know :)

I have changed your domains to our new plan now Nancy. You will shortly receive a welcome email with the separate Cpanel logins for your additional domain.

As you had already paid $24.95, and the cost of the new plan is $20 for you, I have credited your client account $5, which can be used for future invoices. If you would prefer a refund to your Paypal instead, please just let me know.

:)
