Due to the immense premium it would cost to make a single payment to pay for a server indefinitely, we do not offer any sort of single payment / server-for-life option or free servers outside of our Partner Program. However, you can cancel your service at any time, choose a longer billing cycle if you don't like paying often, enroll in automatic payments via credit/debit card or PayPal, or work with our team as needed to help keep your server at costs that best suit your needs.
Why can't you offer an indefinite payment option?
It's important to consider that we (easily) pay over $10,000 USD per month in infrastructure costs alone. Break that down to a single 1GB server for 5 years... You're looking at an upfront bill of $600. 10 years?... $1200. 20 years?... $2400.
You get the idea! You would not want to foot a whopping $600-2400+ bill, or at least I wouldn't want to. ;-)
How can I get a discount or a longer billing cycle?
If you're worried about cost, we often run sales throughout the year and there are always coupons available. If you're unsure where to find a discount, feel free to reach out to our team!
Most of our codes apply to your first payment only, though we do have some that apply to each payment so long as your service is active. Let us know what you prefer!
If you love CubedHost and you want to refer others to us, the Affiliate Program is a great way to do it! Do you run a YouTube channel, blog, or stream often? Do you have friends at work or school that love Minecraft? Great! That's an opportunity for you to refer others to CubedHost and earn some account credit for yourself.
For each completed order made by someone you've referred, you'll earn 10% of their order's cost. We can even set up a custom affiliate link for you if you're interested.
We offer three billing cycles: Monthly, Quarterly, and Semi-annual
The Quarterly cycle means that you'll be invoiced every 3 months for service renewal and your renewal cost includes a discount of 5% automatically whereas the Semi-annual cycle means you'll be invoiced every 6 months and you'll get an included discount of 10%.
If you'd like to change your billing cycle at any time, just ask our team!
Automated Payments and Account Credit
Don't like having to deal with manual payments? No problem! We offer automated payments by default with credit/debit cards and we also offer PayPal subscriptions for your convenience. You can also choose to Add Funds to your account so you always have credit available to pay any open invoices on your account.
What if I can't afford a server or can't afford to keep paying for one every month?
We understand that not everyone has the means to purchase a server or hold onto one for months at a time. This is why we keep our Affiliate Program open to all, even if you don't have an active service. Additionally, you can always cancel your service at anytime and/or reach out to our team if you need to make any adjustments to help meet your budget.
