Time Running Out on Big Discounts
Hi OCC News Subscriber,
On October 1, 2008 OurChurch.Com will be scaling back the substantial discounts currently offered on annual hosting plans and Website Service Bundles and adjusting the pricing on some Marketing and Advertising services. We’re announcing this today to give you 6 weeks to take advantage of the current discounts.
Web Hosting Price Changes
Despite increasing disk space and bandwidth six-fold in recent years, OurChurch.Com has never raised prices on its hosting packages. In fact, a few years ago we reduced our prices by offering 25% off the purchase of an annual hosting plan. On October 1, the discount on annual hosting plans will be reduced from 25% to about 17%.
Note that there will be no changes to the quarterly and semi-annual hosting plans.
- Domain Package: Currently $60/yr. Will be $60/yr (no change).
- Bronze Package: Currently $135/yr. Will be $149/yr.
- Silver Package: Currently $180/yr. Will be $199/yr.
- Gold Package: Currently $270/yr. Will be $299/yr.
- Platinum Package: Currently $399/yr. Will be $449/yr.
- Ad-Free Option: Currently $90/yr. Will be $99/yr.
If you currently have one of these hosting packages and your renewal date is after Oct 1, you can still renew before Oct 1 to receive the big discounts currently being offered. Hosting prices - Order now!
Marketing Services Price Changes
Services that include search engine registration and search engine optimization tend to be very hands on and labor intensive. Thus the prices of these services are closely tied to staffing costs. If you’ve gotten to know some of the folks that work here at OCC, you know they’re a very selfless bunch. However, most would prefer to be able buy food and have a place to live rather than not. So, we’ll be adjusting the prices of our marketing services on October 1.
The new prices will still be an amazing value, but obviously you can save even more if you purchase before October 1. Marketing services prices - Order now!

Website Service Bundles Price Changes
