Upgrades, New Pricing and Service Agreement Notice

Effective February 1, 2015 our price list and service agreement will be modified as noted below.   Existing clients will not see an increase in their monthly fees, and their hourly rate will be grandfathered in.  New clients will be billed at the new rates and all clients will be subject to the revised terms listed below.

Server Updates!

It is hard to believe that it has already been two years since our last major hardware updates.  Though we continue to keep the CPanel, Web Host Manager, PHP other software continuously up to date, ever so often new hardware is required, and we have begun discussing server upgrades for the first half of 2015 (before July).  If you have certain periods that would work better for you, let us know.  If there are definite time periods that would cause problems, be sure to make us aware of those.  Eg, florist, candy sites have to be fully functional around St. Valentine’s Day.

The upgrades will go much smoother with less data to copy to the new server so (you guessed it), it’s time to give all the sites, mail accounts and databases the once over and get rid of the archived and unneeded data between January and  March.  Be sure to back up any files you may want to preserve so we can avoid burdening the new server.
