When a user creates a server in xCloud, the system employs a prepaid billing model. We automatically generate invoices and charge your account’s primary payment method on the first day of each month for all existing servers.
Account Activation and Free Tier Access #
New users can get started with xCloud without the need for a credit card. They can create one server and 10 sites for free by integrating their preferred cloud providers like DigitalOcean (DO), Vultr, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). xCloud Managed Servers along with some additional features cannot be accessed without adding payment methods.
To unlock all features and services, users must add a payment method to their account. Charges will apply to the existing free plan servers once a payment method is added.
Server Creation And Billing Model #
The cost of the server is immediately deducted from the user’s primary payment method upon creation. Unused hours for the server of the first month will be adjusted in the following month, ensuring you pay what you use in the first month only.
For example, if a user purchases a server on January 15th for $5, they will be charged $2.5 in the next month for the same server. However, removal of that particular server will not result in adjustments for other servers.
Pricing Plans #
xCloud offers multiple pricing plans so that users can easily pay for what they need. Here you can check all the pricing plans. For a more detailed understanding, let us have a look below.
Currently, xCloud provides 2 types of services under multiple pricing plans. One is xCloud Managed Hosting and the other is Self-Managed Hosting.
xCloud Managed Hosting #
This service offers to elevate your site with xCloud servers. It ensures speed and security, with no hidden charges in the future. This service has different packages where you will be charged monthly based on configuration. Have a look at the below plans to select your needs. Also, you can check the pricing page.
Self-Managed Hosting #
This service allows bringing your own server like Vultr, Digital Ocean, GCP, Linode, Hertzner, Contabo, or any other cloud provider, and integrating it with xCloud. It offers tier-based pricing for its customers. For this service, there are 4 types of plans available. Have a look below.
- Free Trial: No Cost for 1 server [With Limited Features]
- Starter: $5/Server (/month) for 1-5 Servers [With All Features]
- Professional: $4/Server (/month) for 6-10 Server [With All Features]
- Agency: $3/Server (/month) for 10+ Server [With All Features]
At first, you can start using xCloud for free, with limited features. To unlock more features, when you add a card payment method, then the Free Trial Plan server will be charged $5 according to Starter plan tier-based pricing.
For 1st 5 servers, you have to pay $5 for each. After adding the 6th server, it will be charged $4 according to Professional plan tier-based pricing. And, if you add 10+ servers, then it will be charged $3 according to Agency plan tier-based pricing. Have a look at below and see the pricing plans for this service.
Lifetime Deal #
Currently, xCloud is offering an exciting plan which is a Lifetime Deal. This deal is only applicable for Self Managed Hosting which means you need to integrate your own server with xCloud. The Lifetime deal offers 5 plans for your WordPress hosting and server management. Have a look below.
- Entry: For 2 servers
- Budget: For 7 Servers
- Growth: For 15 Servers
- Performance: For 50 Servers
- Supreme: For 250 Servers
Now, let us know how it works. Suppose, you purchased the Entry plan where you can add only 2 servers and use them for a lifetime. If you add more than 2, then for the 3rd server, the Starter plan will start and you will pay monthly for the 3rd server.
Let’s give you another example. You purchased the Growth plan where you can add 15 servers and use them for a lifetime. If you add more than 15, then for the 16th server, the Starter plan will start and you will pay monthly for the 16th server or more.
Thus the Lifelime deal works for more servers than you unlocked with the plan. Have a look below and see the details of each plan.
Note: Currently, we are offering Split Payment option for ‘Growth’, ‘Performance’, and ‘Supreme’ plans of Lifetime Deals.
Refund Policy #
xCloud offers a very transparent refund policy which includes:
- For LTD & Self-managed servers: 14-day refund policy, no questions asked.
- For xCloud Provider & xCloud-managed servers: the unused amount will be refunded.
Late Payments #
Our billing cycle charges accounts on the first day of each month. If your account remains past due, it may be temporarily suspended. If you require additional time to settle your bill, please reach out to our support team for further assistance within the first week of the month.
