We have unveiled a new pricing model that is aimed to make Installatron more affordable for everyone.
Under the new model, we no longer require bulk purchases to receive a discount; instead, discounts are now based on the total number of active licenses owned at the time of purchase and renewal. That is, the more active licenses you own the cheaper the next one is to purchase, and the renewal fee for all your licenses is based on the number of active licenses that you own at the time of renewal. To view license purchase and renewal cost at specific numbers of active licenses, see the table on our pricing page.
As part of the new model, we have also introduced monthly VPS licenses starting at $2.50 per month. All of our VPS Licenses will work on Virtual Private Servers ("VPS") that also have fewer than 100 hosted domains or less than 1100MB dedicated memory. Servers that do not have VPS software, or that have both more than 100 hosted domains and more than 1100MB dedicated memory, require a Dedicated-Server license. All major virtualization software is supported, including Virtuozzo, OpenVZ, VMware, Xen, and others.
The new pricing model, including the new monthly VPS licenses, is immediately effective for new purchases. Existing licenses will continue on the model they were purchased, and may be converted to the new model by opening a ticket. Clients with old custom contracts may choose to continue to purchase those licenses. We have been planning these changes for some time and no further price changes are expected in the foreseeable future.
