Looks like DreamHost is launching a new pricing structure together with their birthday promo.
There is currently only 1 service plan (which includes 500 GB disk storage and 5 TB monthly bandwidth) and a number of new add-on options:
- Premium Phone Support ($9.95/month)
- Double to 1 TB Disk Storage ($9.95/month)
- Double to 10 TB Bandwidth ($9.95/month)
- VPN Access ($19.95/month)
So goodbye Crazy Domain Insane, Sweet Dreams, Code Monster and Strictly Business. Hello One Plan Fits All!
Actually the change is not that big, since the last couple of years the biggest difference between the plans has been that the Crazy Domain Insane didn’t include phone support and the Strictly Business included VPN access and a free secure certificate.
Another change to the payment structure is the payment periods. It is now possible to prepay for 10 years!
- Pay Monthly @ $10.95/month + $49.95 setup = $60.90
- Pay Yearly @ $9.95/month + no setup = $119.40 (9% off)
- Pay for 2 Years @ $8.95/month + no setup = $214.80 (18% off)
- Pay for 3 Years @ $7.95/month + no setup = $286.20 (27% off)
- Pay for 5 Years @ $6.95/month + no setup = $417.00 (36% off)
- Pay for 10 Years @ $5.95/month + no setup = $714.00 (45% off)
New customers signing up today will get an additional $110.10 discount.
10 years is a life time in the hosting business, so I can’t imaging many will use this option, but probably quite a few will sign up for 2-3 years.
