Web Package Updates
Masscot Internet is constantly upgrading its services and packages. With this new upgrade, it will be necessary to change the name of some of our web hosting packages. All packages will soon be named with a single word title. Thus, packages whose name presently contains two words will be changed to a single word title. We will also update some of our package names to reflect a more modern feel. Some of the package names have not been changed in many years. These changes will be incorporated into a new Masscot web site presently under construction. Some options within these packages may also change, but we expect their offerings will be improved in most cases.
Miva Merchant websites will be their own package called Miva which includes the Miva license fee. Miva was previously packaged with out Standard hosting package. Miva Merchant has been drastically increasing their licensing fees over the past 12 months. For the most part, Masscot has been absorbing these significant increases until the customer's hosting renewal date. It will now be necessary to increase the price of Miva package hosting upon renewal to help cover these license fee increases by Miva.
We understand that these fee increases are a burden, especially one smaller online stores in these economic times. Although we still believe Miva is the best shopping system on the web, we are now offering alternatives for ecommerce customers who wish to choose a more basic and less expensive option for a shopping cart. Please contact support if you wish to explore your options.
