La Habra, California – (The Hosting News) – November 1, 2006 – Lunarpages.com, a multi award winning California-based web hosting company, has introduced comprehensive increases to the storage space and data transfer on its Business and Basic plans.
The Basic Plan now hosts 35 gigabytes of storage and 800 gigabytes of data transfer, while the Business Plan 50 Gigabytes of storage and 1 terabyte of data transfer. Lunarpages Executives also have a clear message to send its competitors.
Amy Armitage, of Lunarpages Business Development and Marketing commented, ”Honestly, do our shared customers need all of this extra bandwidth and space? Will they even use it? I doubt it. Lately, checking out hosting review sites and offerings of other hosts I’m incredibly concerned about the credibility of the industry as a whole. The reality is Lunarpages do need to remain competitive but we feel it is more important to concentrate on our service, reputation and our customers. For months I’ve cringed every time another press release lands in my inbox about data transfer increases that can’t always be responsibly delivered in a shared hosting environment. Can we deliver all of this transfer? Yes of course. Will this motivate our customers to suddenly become educated in ways to increase their traffic, probably not.”
According to the company, the enhancements have not affected the affordability of web hosting with Lunarpages, as their prices have remained unchanged for several years. In August, the addition of $700 of CoffeeCup Webmaster Software was given to its entire community, along with the option to purchase extra domains at $2.99 each.
Ron Riddle, CEO of Lunarpages Web Hosting added, ”The upgrades are simply cosmetic. We all know it and our customers know it. If our webmasters can make use of the extra space and transfer allowance and increase their traffic significantly, fantastic! We will back up our offerings as always. However, hopefully this will serve as a message to our peers to stop devaluing shared hosting and focus on what matters — Hosting websites, keeping them online, and providing responsive and quality support for your community.”
Ms. Armitage continued, ”If compliance and realistic limits and price points can be agreed upon, the winners will not only be our customers, they will be our businesses, because we will continue to be profitable, reputable, to grow, and best of all be eternal.”
