    Shopping for new hosting provider. All I really use these days is email, but it's still cheaper to get email+web hosting than email-only hosting.

    I've been with them more than 10 years. So much for customer loyalty.

    Yeah that happened to me with AT&T. They were offering a lot of deals for new contracts, but nothing for renewals or customer loyalty. You'd think that companies would be more ready to keep their customers rather than try to snipe new ones.

    Yes you do. And the longer you sign up for, the cheaper it is (per year). The one I'm looking at now is $7/month for a year, but $3.50/month for 10 years. I like the 10 year price, but not so keen on paying it all up front. After all, who knows whether I'll still be needing it in 10 years, or if they will still be around?

    @samfkj apparently it takes 10 times as much effort to get a new customer as it does to keep an existing one. But everyone only offers the special deals to new customers rather than thanking existing ones for their loyalty. Even if they did offer me the "new customer" price, at the moment, with the exchange rate, it's still more expensive than the new one I'm checking out

    They do the same thing in the US. I can get internet for $29.99/mo if I'm new, $70/mo though after a year. No loyalty benefits whatsoever.
