Premium Subscriptions are here! You can get yours now from the Donate page. Additionally, we have departed from the Donator Code system and have adopted a Subscription system instead. You can now purchase subscriptions for your webcomics on the Donate page. In the near future, you will be able to buy subscriptions for other people's webcomics (i.e. as a gift) as well.
Donator Subscriptions Extended
Last week when Premium Subscriptions were announced, I promised that all current Donator comics would have their subscriptions extended an additional 3 months. And now they have been!
Premium Subscriptions include all of the benefits of a Donator Subscription, as well as:
- 1) Custom Domain Names. For the first time ever on Smack Jeeves, you are able to set a custom domain name for your webcomic.
- For example, if your current Smack Jeeves address is mycomic.smackjeeves.com, and you own mycomic.com, you are now able to set mycomic.com as your custom domain name with a Premium Subscription. All of your site's pages will be available on mycomic.com. You also have the option of either keeping your old domain as a mirror or redirecting its traffic to the new domain.
Note: You must already own or purchase your own domain name from a domain name registrar such as GoDaddy in order to host it with us.
2) Ability to Set Up Email for up to 50 email addresses.
- If you're hosting a custom domain name with us, you're most likely going to want to be able to receive email at that domain name, right? Well, we've made that possible with the Premium Subscription service. You'll be able to create up to 50 email addresses/accounts which will be accessible through webmail, IMAP and POP.
3) Additional File Hosting. The new Premium Service also allows you to upload additional files, such as layout images, stylesheet files, zip files, bonus downloads, whatever you want.
Additionally, Premium Subscriptions increase the comic size limit to 5MB per page.
If you do decide to purchase a Premium Subscription, you will have 60 days to ask for a refund if you are not satisfied with the service. Simply contact us at any time if you want to cancel for a refund.
If your webcomic currently has active Donator status, you will be eligible for a special discount, based on how much time you have left on your Donator Subscription.
Unused Donator Codes
If you currently have any unused Donator Codes, you can still activate them at any time. If you are planning on upgrading to a Premium Subscription, make sure you activate any unused Donator Codes on your comic before upgrading in order to receive the maximum discount possible! We realize some people might forget, in which case we will provide assistance if you contact us.
Have any questions? I'll be happy to answer them here, or feel free to contact me via PM or through the Contact form on Smack Jeeves.
