When I renewed my Siteground subscription in 2007 and 2008 it became 83.40, and now for 2009 its becoming 95.40. I understand the cost of doing business is going up, but they should give consideration to their long term customers who have been part of the service for awhile by offering them an opportunity to beat the cost increase by either getting a 2 year subscription at last year’s rate or paying a slight increase instead of the full 12.00 hike in their hosting fees.
The economy is becoming rough for all of us and we all do need to save money. However I do need to consider my options in who would become my hosting provider when my subscription ends. If my web site traffic is not as heavy, then maybe I could afford to get a reasonable hosting provider.
