Multi Domain Linux Hosting

The pricing model of the Multi Domain Linux Hosting Product is based on discounts, depending on the number of months any Plan's Order is purchased
and renewed for
. This feature is referred as Telescopic Pricing.

Note
  • You may display on your SuperSite a minimum of 1 and only a maximum of 2 Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plans for each Geo Hosting.

    Examples:

    • If you have chosen to display 3 Linux Hosting Plans for a particular Geo Hosting, you would only be able to display any 1 Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plan. You would only be able to display the 2nd Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plan, once you have set the number of Linux Hosting Plans to be displayed to 2 for this Geo Hosting.

    • If you have chosen to display 2 Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plans for a particulat Geo Hosting, you would only be able to display any 2 Linux Hosting Plans. You would only be able to display the 3rd Linux Hosting Plan, once you have set the number of Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plans to be displayed to 1 for this Geo Hosting.

  • If you do not want to sell a particular Plan category, you would need to stop offering the parent Multi Domain Linux Hosting <Geo> Product entirely.

Set Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plans Selling Price (Anchor: plans)

allows you to set Telescopic Price ranges for all Multi Domain Linux Hosting Adds and Renewals for each Plan.
This simply means that you may offer your Customers and Sub-Resellers increased discounts as and when they may choose to add / renew their Multi Domain Linux Hosting Orders with you for multiple months.

Example:

Suppose that your Cost Price for Plan A is USD 5 per month. Depending upon your business model, you may set your Selling Price for 12 months as USD 10 per month. Now, if a Customer
wished to add a Hosting Order under Plan A for 36 months, he would be charged USD 360 (USD 10 per month). However, with the Telescopic Pricing model, you may set a reduced price of say,
USD 8 per month. In this way, your Customer is charged USD 288 instead of USD 360, thus, availing a discount for purchasing for a longer duration.

To Set your Multi Domain Linux Hosting Plans Telescopic Selling Price

  1. Login to your Control Panel. See details

  2. In the Menu, point to Settings and click Manage Products and Pricing.

  3. Click the Multi Domain Linux Hosting link.

  4. Click any Geo Hosting tab to set Pricing for Plans under that Geo Hosting.

  5. Click the Customers tab to set the Customer Pricing and the Sub-Resellers tab to set the Sub-Reseller Pricing.

  6. Click the Manage Price link under the Action column besides any Plan.

  7. Mention the per month Selling Price in each text box as per your requirement.

  8. You may choose to add additional slabs for the duration of the Plan, by selecting it from the drop-down at the bottom of the page and clicking Add Slab.

  9. Click the Update button to save your changes.

Note
  • You need to set Pricing for Plans under each Geo Hosting that you have signed up for.

  • Price can be any number (upto 2 decimal places). Hence, 3.00, 3, 3.19 are all valid prices.

  • Pricing for Add Dedicated IP/SSL can be configured for only the slab of the least duration

    Example:

    If you have a Selling Price For 3 Months slab and a Selling Price For 12 Months slab, then you would be able to mention the Add Dedicated IP/SSL Selling Price for only the 3 Months slab.

  • If you have multiple slabs configured, you need to set reduced pricing for the higher duration slab, than the one that is immediately of a lower duration.

    Example:

    If you have a Selling Price For 3 Months slab and add a Selling Price For 12 Months slab, then the per month Selling price you need to mention for the 12 Months slab needs to be lower
    than that of the 3 Months slab.

  • When Specific Pricing is not set, then your Customer would get the best pricing from amongst the Telescopic Pricing (for Multi Domain Linux Hosting) and any ongoing Promotion
    Pricing (if applicable)
    .

    Additional Information
