Important notice – free accounts

  • Dear Own.ie user

    Thank you for being such a valued partner and supporter of Own.ie.

    We are sending this email to let you know that the model of free websites which we have been providing is no longer sustainable for our business.

    Our core value is to help small businesses grow online. Unfortunately, due to the high demand for our services, our servers are overloaded with thousands of websites and – as a small business ourselves – the hosting costs are above our budget.

    In order to continue providing a service, we will have to start charging a small hosting and administrative cost on all the Own.ie websites.

    If you decide to stay with us – and we hope that you will – the cost of the new Elite package will be €25/month or €250/year. The cost includes a .ie or .co.uk domain, hosting, three layers of security, up to three business email addresses and many other features.

    We will continue to host all sites for free – by upgrading them to the Elite package with no extra charge – for a further 9 months.

    If you decide to leave us – and we hope that you won’t – you have 9 months in order to transfer your website content to another provider. We believe that 9 months is more than enough time to allow you to do this without your business being affected.

    If no action is taken by you, all free accounts will be deleted before the 15th of January 2018.

    We do hope that you will continue to use Own.ie and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Best regards,
    Own.ie Support Team
