Get the New, Easy-to-Use Dashboard and a Free Hosting Upgrade!

Written by Paul Steinbrueck

We’ve been hard at work rolling out the new dashboard, and today we’re excited to announce that we’re ready to make it available to you. To celebrate we are giving everyone who wants to move to the dashboard a free upgrade to their hosting package for a year!

The Old, Clunky MyOCC Just Won’t Do!

frustrated-old-dashboardIf you’ve been with OurChurch.Com since before July 31 of this year, you’re using our old MyOCC dashboard. Have you ever…

  • Gotten frustrated trying to order or renew services through the old order form?
  • Had difficulty finding what you were looking for?
  • Couldn’t figure out how to update your credit card info?
  • Had to take the extra step of forwarding invoices to the person who pays the bills at your org?
  • Thought the old MyOCC dashboard was, uh, asthetically challenged?

That’s OK. You can say it. We understand and feel the same way. 😛

That’s why we’re excited about the new dashboard that’s sooooo much better!

exciting-new-dashboardIt includes…

  • A simpler login using your email address instead of a username
  • A cleaner design
  • Easier, more intuitive navigation
  • Convenience of having multiple contacts, so you can focus on being the admin and the person who pays the bills can automatically get the invoices sent to them.
  • Invoices that are easy to read, print and pay.
  • Convenience of being able to look up your entire payment history online any time you like.
  • Totally new shopping cart that’s far easier to use

Note that moving to the new dashboard will not affect the appearance or functionality of your website in any way. Nor will it affect the admin of your site. That’s a separate system that has not changed.

Taste and See

If you’d like to take a look before moving, we’ve created this quick, 5 minute video that shows you around the new dashboard.

Get an Upgrade!

To celebrate the occasion, we are doing an upgrade special in conjunction with the move to the new dashboard. Renew your current hosting package for a year, and we’ll upgrade your web hosting package to the next level for the rest of your current term of service plus the additional year of the renewal. (That’s in addition to the 2 free months you already get when you order annually instead of monthly.)

For example, got a Starter package that’s due for renewal November 1? Just pay $59 for a year of Starter and we’ll upgrade you so you get the Bronze package through November 2014, and you get immediate access to the new dashboard!

Same deal for Bronze or Silver. Renew for a year at the cost of your current package and we’ll give upgrade you to the next package immediately and add a year to your renewal date.
Got a Gold package that’s paid up through January 1, 2014? That’s our top package. So, since we can’t give you an upgrade, how about if we give you $100 off the regular price? Instead of $299, you pay $199 and you’re good to go on Gold through January 1, 2015. Oh yeah, and you get the new dashboard.

If you’ve got a free account, order a year of any package and we’ll also give you a free upgrade for a year and access to the new dashboard.

This special offer ends at Midnight ET October 31! So, upgrade & move now!

  • I wanna say OurChurch.Com has in this type of business quite time and the way members of this website working hard to serve best users experience is truly admiring. I hope this new offer will grab all the users of OurChurch.Com who are using old edition of hosting. Thanks.

  • What does this upgrade means…I've been with OCC since 2002. And I've been below the requirements for free service. Now what?, will the upgrade keep my websight at present status?

    • Hi Terri, the upgrade special is for members with a paid hosting package. Since you have a free account, you could order a year of any paid hosting package and we would give you the next package up and move you to the new dashboard. If you want to keep your site free, you can do that, but you'll have to wait to move to the new dashboard as we're giving first dibs on that to people who take advantage of the upgrade special.

    • Hi Wayne, right now the move is voluntary, so you don't NEED to move. But eventually we will be migrating everyone to the new, easier-to-use dashboard.

    • Hi Beth, yes. If you renew your bronze hosting package now for another year, we'll bump it up to silver at no extra cost which gives you more space for media, plus we'll move you to the new dashboard which has better/easier invoicing and billing. It won't affect your WordPress site at all or your WordPress dashboard which you use to update it.

  • Really an awesome to get involved with our church blogging network by accepting their such exciting offer!! Free hosting upgrade part must me convincing users of such host to upgrade to newer dashboard most definitely. Thanks.
