hosting prices based on our market study (2020)

Hosting prices have changed drastically over the last 10 to 15 years.

In early 2000, a $8.95/mo package with basic features was considered cheap. Then the price dropped to $7.95/mo, then $6.95/mo, $5.95/mo, and lower.

We studied recent market trends and found that, on average...

  • Entry level shared plan costs $3.40/mo at signup & $4.94/mo during renewal,
  • Entry level VPS plan costs $17.20/mo at signup & $20/mo during renewal, and
  • The highest shared and VPS hosting plans sould not cost more than $25/mo and $170.
