👋 Hey Everyone,
Effective December 1st 2023 we’ll be increasing the price for all Opalstack hosting plans. The increase will be 25% or less depending on the plan, with most plans having a 20% increase.
Price increases are never anyone’s favorite discussion topic. It’s not ours either, but our own costs have increased steadily since we launched Opalstack in 2019 — and dramatically so over the past 2 years leading us to an increase in operational costs of over 25% since launch.
We’ve done our best to avoid a price increase for our customers for as long as possible. We’ve debated moving our infrastructure to cheaper providers to avoid the higher costs, but we are committed to providing the best hosting experience possible and do not believe that we could do so by relying on cheap hardware and services. We’re also a small and fiercely independent company and do not have venture capital or investor fundraising to fall back on. Faced with these facts, our only option is to increase our prices for the first time in the 4+ years that we’ve been operating.
We at Opalstack appreciate your business and continued support. If you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming price increase then please email our support team and someone from our team will get back to you.
Thank you for your time and, as always, thank you for using Opalstack.
The (((Opalstack Team
