New Hosting Packages Now Available!
We are pleased to announce that our new range of hosting and reseller packages are now available to order. We have made some significant increases to the disk space and data transfer limits available for our accounts as well as simplified the range of accounts that are available.
These accounts are now immediately available for any new orders. All existing accounts will remain on their package and upgrading / downgrading between the older packages is also possible as before therefore nothing changes for existing accounts.
What has changed with the new accounts?
The main change is a significant increase in both disk space and data transfer allocated to an account. We have also introduced monthly payments for all hosting accounts, however if you pay for these annually then you will receive two months free hosting. Monthly payments certainly makes the larger hosting accounts much more affordable and can help withmanagement of finances.
Our new hosting accounts also all offer a feature called MultiPHP where you can select/switch the version of PHP used for your site. We currently support PHP v5.6, v7.0, v7.1 & v7.2. PHP performance is also notably improved on our new server builds.
Where can I find details of the new accounts?
Our account pricing page has been updated to now show the new account packages. This can be found on our website here: https://www.penguin-uk.com/hosting-prices.php
Can I change my existing account to a new one?
Certainly, we fully support this and would also recommend it as in the vast majority of cases you will either gain space or save money, especially if your account is near its limit now. This will however likely require a move of your hosting account onto one of our newer, faster servers where the new accounts have been configured and there are a few small technical considerations for this. We can however discuss this with you in detail if there is an interest to move your account.
Do I need to upgrade to a new package?
Not at all – we will be maintaining our previous packages for the foreseeable future for all existing customers and will also still allow upgrades / downgrades between them and so if you are happy with your existing package then you are free to remain on it.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please do feel free to contact us and we will be more than happy to explain in more detail as required.
