CLDMV is proud to announce that by February 1st 2014 we will be offering shared hosting on the same platform which runs our hybrid servers. While there will not be some features bundled into the system. Such as SSD, backup control, image compression, etc. It will still have the same system in the background.
This will allow customers to run non-critical applications for a reduced price. Pricing structure is still under consideration. However we will not be charging for bandwidth. Disk space charges are still up in the air.
Potentially we may charge a flat rate and give limits to the space available. We might also setup the same way we currently do with our Hybrid hosting and charge for space used. Which generally allows users to get their hosting for cheaper.
We will also be offering our Hybrid hosting clients extended backups which will automatically store their backups remotely. Pricing is still to be decided with this feature. It may roll out as a free feature.
As of September 1st 2014 CLDMV will be changing it’s future subscriber pricing. All current clients will remain with the same pricing structure which was available previously.
Namely the subscription based fees will be changed. Clear examples are below:
Current Subscription fee(s):
- First Node: 100$/mo
- Additional Node(s): 25$/ea/mo
Example: Client runs 4 website businesses. First website business is 100$/mo, the additional 3 are 25$/ea/mo. The total subscription fee per month would be 175$/month.
Subscription fee(s) as of September 1st:
- First and Odd number Node(s): 100$/mo
- Even number Node(s): 25$/ea/mo
Example: Client runs 4 website businesses. First website business is 100$/mo; the the second is 25$/mo, the third being 100$/mo, and the fourth being 25$/mo. The total subscription fee per month would be 250$/month.
The change to the subscription fee(s) were carefully considered and debated. Unfortunately CLDMV would not be able to operate at it’s current standards if the original fee(s) were kept and half or more of the nodes available per server were taken up from additional 25$/mo cost. So in order to maintain our current standards and stay in business we came to the above compromise in cost.
Unlike most hosting companies who will put 100,000+ users on a single server; use network drives, use mass storage drives, use cheap 100mbps lines, or do anything else to make more money. CLDMV does none of those. Our servers are restricted to 500 nodes per server. The only time network drives are used are for backups. The only time mass storage drives are used is for backups. All of our servers are either dual 1000mbps or dual 10gbps connections. Our servers are also using the newest top software to serve our client’s websites. We aren’t using “clunky” and insecure control panels to host our clients. So our clients get better speed and better performance.
The below promotional offer expires 2014/08/01 at 12am PST.
As systems for the control panel are starting to come together. I’ve decided to offer some incentive options for referrals.
Option 1: 5% off your Monthly additional charges (bandwidth, disk space, backups, db space, email space, dedicated IP) for 1 node. As long as your referred customer keeps their subscription.
Option 2: 100$ credit to your account for every 12 months your referred customer pays for server service (If the referred customer pays for 12 months now and then in 12 months pays for another 12 months you’ll get 200$ in account credit).
Each customer referred allows one of the two options for referral credit.
Essentially if you refer 32 customers to CLDMV your hosting is free (assuming 1 node in use) as long as those 32 customers keep service.
Note: Account credit is only redeemable for services and invoices. It is not redeemable for cash/money.
What is a node you may ask. A node is specified as a single domain/application. IE say you run example.com and example.net, each is a single node on our servers. Thus you are running 2 nodes.
