I’m writing to let you know that Podpage will be phasing out our free plan on August 1, 2023. At that point, websites under the free plan will expire and only be accessible to the website owner. If you’d like to upgrade, you can join thousands of other podcasters and upgrade to one of our paid plans (and as a thank you, use the coupon below for a discount).
Why is this changing?
Podpage’s free plan allowed podcasters to create publicly accessible podcast websites so they could try our service. Unfortunately, a lot of non-podcasters abused it and posted illegal or stolen content on the free sites.
The good news is that a very small percentage of podcasters use the free plan as their official podcast website. Most upgrade to the Basic or Pro plan, so this change won’t impact too many legitimate websites.
However, I know there are some of you who rely on Podpage Free for your official site, and I’m very sorry about this change. To make it easier, we are offering discounts on upgrading before August 1.
How do I upgrade and keep my site?
If you’d like to continue your service with Podpage, go to https://podpage.com/upgrade/. There are currently two plans available, and here’s how to save money on each:
- Basic: Use coupon FREEUP10 to save $10 ($10 off your first month or first year)
- Pro: Use coupon FREEUP20 to save $20 on Pro ($20 off your first month or first year)
- These coupons are only valid until August 1, 2023.
What happens if I don’t upgrade?
All your data will still be safe and accessible through the Podpage dashboard, but your website will “Expire”, which means anyone who visits it will see an “Expired” screen. At any point, you can upgrade and turn it back on.
Wait, I already upgraded! Why am I getting this email?!
If you’ve already upgraded, you don’t need to do anything. My apologies if there was a bug in sending the email, please ignore it. .
As always, thank you so much for using Podpage! I’ve personally spent thousands of hours trying to build it as a great tool for podcasters, so it means a lot to me that you tried it. If you need anything or have any questions, please email me or reply to this email.
