Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site

 

All,

Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site from $110 per year to $220 per year. We have the Premium Plan, which you can see here: https://groups.io/static/pricing  

To review, in February 2019 when we moved from Yahoo to Groups.io, I guaranteed the annual payment of Group.io fees for the first five years and I stand by that even though I not aware that the price would increase. Several months after we moved from Yahoo, we were able to sell advertising to QSails on our Wiki page. We believed that this would offset the Group.io costs.

I will continue to guarantee the Group.io costs, but I will also look for other ways to offset them.

Hello,

It looks like the "Premium" plan allows for taking donations.  That might be an option.  I don't know how many members there are but a few dollars each would probably cover it.

Just an idea.

Bill,

 

We have 1300 (?) members. Perhaps a small assessment could help cover the cost also. I am willing.

We have collected enough donations to give the Amel Yacht Owners Group 3 years' worth of fees to our host Groups.io. I will see if I can transfer all of the funds to Groups.io to prepay their fees for the next 3 years.

Thanks to everyone.

Bill,

My contribution has also gone through. Thank you for keeping this site going and this forum is way more usable than the Yahoo! site, so well worth it.

Bill,

 

We have 1300 (?) members. Perhaps a small assessment could help cover the cost also. I am willing.

 

 

With best regards,

All,

 

Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site from $110 per year to $220 per year. We have the Premium Plan, which you can see here: https://groups.io/static/pricing  

 

To review, in February 2019 when we moved from Yahoo to Groups.io, I guaranteed the annual payment of Group.io fees for the first five years and I stand by that even though I not aware that the price would increase. Several months after we moved from Yahoo, we were able to sell advertising to QSails on our Wiki page. We believed that this would offset the Group.io costs.

 

I will continue to guarantee the Group.io costs, but I will also look for other ways to offset them.

We have collected enough donations to give the Amel Yacht Owners Group 3 years' worth of fees to our host Groups.io. I will see if I can transfer all of the funds to Groups.io to prepay their fees for the next 3 years.

Thanks to everyone. 

Bill

I am happy to chip in. Not only is the forum a great source of information it is also quite fun and a good way to connect with like minded folk.
