Kaplan will be phasing out its previous website plans over the course of one year. Customers will no longer be able to renew their websites at our previous hosting plans and will need to upgrade after June 1st 2007.

4. Can I still renew my web hosting with the original plan?
You can renew your website at its original plan until June 1st 2008, however all websites will need to be upgraded to one of our new web package plans by January 1st, 2008. No further hosting or support for our previous plans will be available after January 1st, 2008.
5. How long do I have to upgrade?

6. Can I keep my old web address?
Current Platinum web customers own their own domain name and will be able to continue using it. You may also choose a different domain name if you wish. Current Gold web customers with web addresses beginning with Homeinspection.com (ex: http://www.homeinspection.com/companyname/ ) will need to choose a new domain name (ex: http://www.yourcompany.com ). As a courtesy, your old URL (Web address) will be will be redirected to your new web address for up to 12 months after the transition.
7. Do I get any credit for my current website's setup fee when I upgrade?
Your website's original setup fee and first year's hosting fee is not transferable. If you upgrade after the first year of service and your new website is launched while you still have prepaid hosting time remaining with the old service the prorated amount can be credited toward hosting with the new service plan. Customers who purchased our previous Platinum website service but did not actually activate the website hosting service may receive a partial upgrade credit depending on the amount of website work already completed (call 1-888-482-5655 for details).
8. What are the price differences between the old and new service plans?
Our new hosting plans are significantly lower than our previous Platinum web hosting plan. The new web hosting fees are $29/month or discounted an additional 15% if paid annually - a savings of up to $120/year. The setup fees for our new packages are discounted $100 off Market Hardware's retails price. See the pricing page and tour our new services for more information.
9. What if I recently renewed my hosting with the old plan?
When you upgrade, you will be credited a pro-rated amount based on the unused portion of your annual hosting fee. This credit will be applied toward your upgrade to the new website. Pro-rated credits cannot be combined with any special offer or discount.
