June 7, 2011 by · Comments Off on Codero Rolls Out Changes To Benefit Small Businesses Including New Lower Pricing, Free Bandwidth and 50% Off Select Servers 

Webmaster ToolboxLenexa, Kansas – The economy still has not fully recovered, especially for small businesses, as evidenced by May’s unemployment numbers.  Codero is responding with benefits for businesses including new lower pricing on their Dedicated Hosting Server Deals line-up, more bandwidth and discounting an exclusive group of high-performance servers up to 50% off.

While inventory lasts, Codero’s dedicated server deals start at only $70 a month and include 3 servers under $100 per month.  In addition to the new lower pricing, Codero is offering 12TB of bandwidth free on all servers for a limited time including the deals line-up.  Free bandwidth removes the need for a variable and costly monthly expense in a business’s operational budget.

The 50 percent special began in May and is being extended to June based on customer response.  Businesses have the flexibility to choose their price-break on four high- performance servers receiving up to 50 percent off with a pre-payment for 12 months. Also available is a 40 percent off discount when you pre-pay for six months; a 35 percent off discount for pre-payment of three months; and a 25 percent off discount when pre-paying for one month in advance.  These discounts are effective for the life of the server and give businesses the chance to have an Intel Xeon Quad Core 2.53 GHz server for as low as $122.50 a month for life.
