Happy Holiday Season!
We’re headed into one of the most joyful seasons of the year and I especially look forward to the Thanksgiving feast and snow personally but I know everyone is different, hopefully there is enough fun and happiness to go around to you and yours.
One thing I want to take a second to do since I normally don’t send out mass emails like this is say Thank You. I appreciate your business and always will as it allows me to pursue my favorite hobby and make a living at it while also being able to educate and care for my son. You, the customer will always be the most important part of my business as without customers I would not have anything to work for.
That being said I know you’re saying “why is he saying all of these nice things? That’s unusual to go through these formalities. Lead ups like these are usually followed by something bad.”
Well you’re partially correct. While the above statement is true, I’m very thankful, I also have to deliver bad news. While on-boarding a couple new customers and purchasing new servers to accommodate for their sites I noticed that prices for said servers have gone up and even though I purchase for long terms on contract, those contracts are coming up and will be renewed at the higher price. If I had to guess as to why I would say it’s probably due to Clark W Griswold’s holiday lighting and the consumption of power it requires.
Currently yearly hosting is $150 flat rate
New yearly hosting will be $170 flat rate – this will begin as of January 1, 2023
New yearly WooCommerce Shops w/site- $200
The good news in all of this is that it’s less than a $2 a month rate hike and we’re still beating the industry standard for the power you receive by quite a bit – but it still bothers me that I have to hike rates. The other good thing to be said as I’m a fan of positivity is that that new rate will be good for a few years, and you’d better believe I’m keeping track on your behalf as I don’t want to send another one of these emails for a while (or ever but we know how that goes).
Since as we all know I’m super verbose about anything and could go all day I’ll end it here and reiterate my thanks to you for being the best part of my business. If you do have any questions or if there is anything I can do for you, please drop me a line, I’m more than happy to help.
Be Happy, Be Safe, & Best Wishes
