Are these your real prices, or are subsequent renewal fees higher?

You may be surprised to learn that many hosting providers utilize tactics that are morally objectionable.

Unlike other hosting providers, we don’t do things like the following:

Advertise a low price up front, then use fine print to switch to a much higher renewal fee.

Our advertised low hosting prices actually match our renewal fees, which are lower than many providers’ renewal fees.

In addition, our hosting recurring fees enjoy price protection against any future increases.

Offer multiple packages with limited hosting features, then suspend customers’ accounts for overusage and make them pay for upgraded packages.

HostM offers a single premium package with unlimited features. No upgrades are necessary.

Advertise unlimited hosting features, then place limitations in the fine print that affect many.

HostM offers unlimited features that benefit just about everyone who’s a normal, sane person wanting worry-free web and email hosting. Only malicious parties get the boot.

Run referral programs that pay large commissions up front, in an attempt to obtain higher positions on fake hosting ranking and review sites.

There’s a phenomenon going on in the hosting industry, where unscrupulous parties set up websites that pretend to rank and review “top” hosting providers. This has been happening for years.

You’ll find that the various provider listings on these types of websites are all very similar to each other, and every link to a provider is a referral link rather than a normal direct link.

This is because the higher the referral commissions, the more a fake hosting ranking website operator is encouraged to include the provider and move them to a higher position to maximize their income from commissions.

That’s why the listed providers also happen to be the exact ones offering some of the highest referral commissions up front, often to the point of making an initial loss, which they then try to recoup by slapping customers with high renewal fees.

HostM doesn’t get involved with such false advertising and misrepresentations. We prefer to pass on the “savings” — if one even calls it that — so our clients can benefit from our low (and real!) prices.
