For nearly two years now we’ve offered unlimited bandwidth on our shared and semi-dedicated hosting packages, and the customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The success of those plans, combined with recent network upgrades and expansions, has led to this exciting announcement: effective immediately, all new reseller hosting packages will also include unlimited bandwidth!
But that’s not all we’re changing! As part of our continued efforts to provide customers with the most competitive hosting available, we’ll be introducing new shared and semi-dedicated plans that include both unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space!
Shared and Semi-Dedicated Plan Changes
Starting at just $7.99 per month, our new unlimited shared hosting package includes all the same features as our old packages, but also offers unlimited disk space in addition to unlimited bandwidth. Our semi-dedicated hosting package also includes unlimited disk space and bandwidth and can be purchased for as little as $39.99 per month.
If unlimited disk space isn’t meant for you, that’s not a problem! We’ve also simplified our ordering process by reducing the number of packages and keeping your options very straightforward. There are now two tiers of shared and semi-dedicated hosting, each service includes a plan with unlimited disk space and the other without.
No matter which plan you choose you’re still getting our 99.9% uptime guarantee and the same level of performance and quality you’ve come to expect from Hawk Host.
Reseller Plan Changes
The major change for our new reseller packages is the switch to unlimited bandwidth! We’re not yet offering unlimited disk space for resellers, but we feel a switch to unlimited bandwidth is a huge improvement and something our customers will greatly value. We’ve also reduced the number of packages we offer, again helping to streamline your decision making and make clear the differences between each package.
Billing Cycle Changes
We’re also adjusting the available billing terms for all hosting packages. All new orders will be given the option to pay month to month, or prepay for one or two years in advance. Additional discounts are provided when you pre-pay for longer terms (the largest discounts being available when you pay for two years in advance).
Existing Customers & Packages
Something we want to make explicitly clear to existing customers is we are not forcing you to upgrade to a new package. You can stay on your existing package and continue renewing for as long as you’d like. The only situation in which we’d need to move you to a new plan is if you’re looking to upgrade/downgrade your service, or if you’re ordering a new hosting plan entirely.
With that being said, if you think one of our new plans is better for you and you’d like to change you can do that at any time. Just contact our sales team and we’ll help advise you on what plan we think you should move to and what the costs associated with the move would be.
Feedback or Suggestions?
Obviously this is a major change to our package structure. We made these changes as a direct result of your comments and requests over the past few years, so it’s important to us you continue to provide valuable feedback. Please don’t hesitate to message us with your opinions on these changes, both positive and negative, so we can make any adjustments that may be necessary.
