2019 Hosting Plans and Payment

Thanks for hosting your website with PagePoint!

In response to changes in Google search results algorithms and changes in the Google Chrome browser, we recommend our hosting clients switch to our Standard Hosting plan, if they haven’t yet. (What is website hosting?)

The key changes by Google in 2018 involved:

  • Google’s search algorithms giving less preference to a standard “http” website and more preference to a more secure “https” website. Websites with secure certificates should therefore show up higher in the search results.
  • Google’s Chrome web browser indicating any standard “http” site as “Not Secure”. This might cause some website visitors to be concerned or alarmed, and leave your site quickly.

If your website is purely informational (just text and images) and not transactional (no contact or other forms), there are no real security risks to remaining with “http”, but there are still Search Engine Optimization (“SEO”) risks.

For example, the page you are currently on is using the “https://” protocol and is deemed secure as indicated by a closed padlock.
Example of https://

If you are unsure if you are already using our Standard Hosting, please visit your website and look for the padlock and https:// in front of your domain name. If your site is secure, it means you are using our Standard Hosting.  If you see http:// (no ‘s’), then you are still using our Legacy Hosting.

We’re offering a deep discount to help our Legacy Hosting clients adapt for Google’s changes. If you decide to take advantage of this option, please choose and make your payment early so we have time to upgrade your site before January 1st. (Pay today and save even more!)

We’ve detailed the plans below. You can pay immediately using PayPal using the links below, or ask us to send you an invoice. If you pay via PayPal, you’ll receive a PayPal notification of payment immediately, and we’ll also send an invoice marked as “paid” for your records within five business days.

Legacy Hosting customers, please note: We will be phasing out the Legacy Hosting plan in 2020, and will require all hosting clients to be using the Standard Hosting plan after that.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 510-558-1534, email us at Aaron@PagePoint.com, or complete our contact form.
