What Is Changing – Why The Change
The new things that are changing are,
- Pricing & Billing Options
- New 24/7 Hosting Support
- The most robust hosting environment to improve your websites performance
Pricing & Billing Options
With the new features, this does require a price hike and restructuring of our current billing options.
The new pricing for our hosting services are:
- New Yearly Price: $200/year (this is a $20 bump from our current $180/year pricing.)
- We are removing monthly billing options for this new hosting service.
- If you were to host directly with WP Engine, you will notice that their direct monthly billing is $35/month. Our partnership has allowed you to get the same great service at a lower cost.
New 24/7 Hosting Support
With our new partnership with WP Engine, you will have access to your hosting account where you will be able to find dedicated chat support.
The reason the change is coming simply due to growth. We currently host over 200 websites. With the continued growth, it’s vital that we expand our support in a few areas. Area 1 is website training. We have been wanting to start pushing continued information about WordPress and plugins that make up your website for some time now. We have not been able to deliver this to our clients due to the day to day management of our servers.
By partnering with WP Engine, you will be able to receive 24/7 customer support for your website. No more needing to wait minutes, hours or even business days to receive answers to questions about lost passwords, needing to request a backup of your website. With WP Engines account management system, you will be able to message support directly and most wait times are 3 minutes or less.
New Hosting Environment
You are now getting everything we currently offer + additional features to improve your website’s performance.
What you are keeping:
- Access to all our premium plugins at no additional cost to you.
- Free SSL certificate powered by Let’s Encrypt
New features you are getting:
- Access to Premium Themes and the Genesis framework. (This is over $2000 in value)
- Global CDN (helps with loading your site faster around the world)
- Page Performance Review
- The latest PHP code
- Staging & Development environments in your hosting account to update your website without any downtime.
- And of course 24/7 custom support via your hosting account portal
What Does This Mean For You
This means everyone will now finally be able to get the long-awaited continued education we have been wanting to provide over the last 2 years as well as more support on the actual websites we have designed vs. the technical aspect of the hosting. We are the best when it comes to websites we have designed for you, however, WP Engine is the BEST when it comes to WordPress hosting. We are now allowing you to get the best support directly with your website and hosting.
Over the next 30 days, we will be migrating all of our yearly hosting clients over to our new server with WP Engine. We will also manually migrate you over to our new billing system. This does not affect your current billing term or cost. No charge will be done during the transfer. Our new pricing will not take effect until your next billing cycle. Stay close to your emails to get needed information about your updated account information.
