Notification of Rate Increase effective January 1, 2022
Due to rising costs and increased bank fees, Brainwrap LLC will be raising hosting, domain, maintenance and developing prices effective January 1, 2022. This is the first increase in well over a decade.
We have attempted to keep our costs down as much as possible over the past few years, but the dramatic increases in spam and malicious attacks on websites has increased exponentially year over year. This is not expected to abate in the foreseeable future. As much as 25% - 30% of our time is now spent taking steps to increase security, proactively manage spam issues, checking blacklist servers and dealing with problems related to hacking attempts and performance. Most of this time is not billable and has far exceeded what we charge in maintenance. Our bank fees, domain registration fees and other hosting costs have increased as well. We can no longer absorb the increases and remain profitable.
This increase will be reflected on your hosting renewal costs for 2022, due to be sent out in mid-October. Month to month clients will be affected starting on January 1, 2022. Hourly charges for web development will increase starting on January 1, 2022. The new rates are as follows:
Web development - $95/hour (an increase of $5 per hour). Please note that our nonprofit 501(c)3 rate will increase by $5 as well. This will become effective starting January 1, 2022.
Hosting packages will increase by $5 annually, $1 monthly -
- Bronze: $105 per year, $11 per month
- Silver : $205 per year, $21 per month
- Gold: $305 per year, $31 per month
- Platinum: $405 per year, $41 per month
- Diamond: $505 per year, $51 per month
Domain registration & renewals will cost $16 per year for .com, .org and .net domains. All other domains will cost $20 per year.
