    How do you think of annual billing?

    This is the question. I was afraid of long term deals, until saw annually billed (very cheap) plans at dayana host, which may mean great economy offering plans for ten bucks a year. The attractive thing is hosts experience which is seven years long already.

    So, do you think annual billing is a good thing Or should it be avoided?

    I personally think it varies from person to person. For me, the majority of the blogs I make will be sold on after a week or two, and there are periods where I won't own any sites for about a month, so, if possible, I'd rather not be paying for months I'm not using.

    Also, I don't know where I'll be in a years time. I'm just moving to college, so the amount of time I have might drastically reduce the amount of time I spend blogging. I personally wouldn't want to make a committment as big as a year.

    I want to be able to switch my host at all times. But 10 bucks in a year sounds super cheap!
    Hosting at work now so I don't know about hosts that much anymore.

    Personally, I see no problem in buying an anual plan if you know that the host is reliable. Plus you save, so where's the harm in it?

    I prefer paying monthly, as if the service is bad you can easily quit.

    If you do your research and know that the service is good, then go in for the cheap annual options.

    Personally I do not like Annual Billing. I have been with a company in the past that I payed for a year up front and the company vanished after 3 months.

    With that said, I believe it is a matter of choice. As a web host, Most of my customers are on a month-to-month base, however I have a small handful of customers who pay semi-annually and even annually. I do offer that for all of the customers.

    I prefer annual. It gives me a 12-month time frame to set aside funds for renewal. If you do your research then there's no reason to be skeptical and go for month to month.

    Annual billing is only IOK if the company is reliable.

    I think you might have a good as wellas bad experience.
