Yeah, that is true. But the thing here is that in the past, there was a big difference between what the two plans offered–and the prices were actually closer at that time (pre-code monster sale).
Now, most of those differences are gone and the 50% off Code Monster sale has taken the shape of regular pricing.
I would guess that Crazy Domain Insane is already their best selling plan, but if you were to take away the Code Monster sale, I think most people would take these “second choices” in this order:
- Just go with Crazy Domain Insane.
- Sign up for Code Monster and pay full price.
- Sign up for Strictly Business.
That’s just my opinion, of course. I think #4 would be choosing to host elsewhere–if they came with the intentions of saving 50% and saw that the sale was over. Otherwise, if they were unaware of the sale, I think the regular Code Monster price is fair and falls within scale of their offerings.
I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I think it’s great that it’s unlikely that most people will need to shell out the higher price for Strictly Business. On the other hand, DH would be crazy to phase it out, since people will sign up for it. I think their latest dedicated version of the plan shows there’s a demand for it.
Besides the people that actually need the resources of the high end plan, I’d imagine there are probably even a few people that would rather have a $60 - $80/month tax write-off than a $10 - $20 one.
