Pricing Philosophy:

In accordance with our mission, Eggplant Farms is committed to charging only what is necessary to offset the costs of the services we provide in a realistic manner (as in, not using ads). This means that we charge based on the actual resources consumed, not based on "conceptual" counts like the number of domains hosted or the number of SQL databases used. The actual resources consumed are what cost us money, and are therefore all that should cost you money. This philosophy is one reason our prices are so competitive.

No Service Contract:

No service contract means that you have no obligation to stay with us any longer than you choose. Cancel your service at any time, and you will not be charged for anything you didn't use. This is a month-to-month pay-as-you-go payment plan, meaning that your account will be charged for services you use as you use them. You may place any amount of money in your account, and it will automatically be billed as you spend. If you wish to cancel your account at any time, we'll take out the cost of a postage stamp and mail you a check for your balance.
