Dear Friends,

Today, we're not just celebrating another year; we're celebrating four incredible years of innovation, growth, and unwavering commitment. It's a moment to reflect, express our heartfelt gratitude, and share our vision for the exciting future ahead.

A Grateful Beginning

We want to kick this off with deep gratitude to each one of you for the incredible support you've extended, directly or indirectly, throughout our journey so far. Your trust and support have been the cornerstone of our success, and we couldn't be more thankful. Every interaction, every challenge, and every milestone we've crossed has made us stronger, and it's all thanks to you.

A Promise to Stand By

From the very beginning, Babal.Host wasn't just another addition to the web hosting landscape. We were born from years of frustration, a frustration of not finding the right web hosting solutions for our own needs. We made a promise to ourselves and to you - no unnecessary add-ons, no leaving you stranded when you need assistance. We are here to be a better hosting company, and we stand true to our words.

A Journey of Excellence

As we embark on our fourth year, our commitment remains unwavering. We continuously strive to provide you with the best service at an affordable price, without compromising on quality. Our journey is marked by evolution, innovation, and customer-centric solutions, and year four is no exception.

A Year in Review (Last 12 Months)

Over the past year, we've taken significant steps to enhance your experience with us:

  • Enhanced User Experience: We've taken significant steps to make life easier for our users, including:
    Redemption Fee Reduction: We've reduced the redemption fee from NPR 15,000 to NPR 10,000, providing you with more cost-effective options.

    Proactive Hosting Reminders: We've improved our hosting reminders, now calling you (on phone) before the service expires, rather than after it's been suspended (email reminders continue to start 30 days before due date), ensuring you have more time to act.

    Domain Renewal Reminders: For domain renewals, we've introduced phone call reminders in addition to our email notifications, offering you a more personalized renewal experience.

    Late Fee Changes: We've extended the late fee window (for when it's added to any invoice) from 7 days to 22 days, effectively removing the concept of late fees until 22 days, making your payment process even more flexible. This is as generally any invoice would have either been processed or cancelled by the system by 21 days.
  • User Empowerment: We've enabled users to create hosting renewal invoices themselves, eliminating the need to wait for a 30-day lead time before the due date. You have the flexibility to renew on your terms.

  • Expanded Knowledge: In addition to our comprehensive blog, FAQ, and knowledge base, we've added a whopping 67 videos to assist you. We are committed to further expanding this library. If you have specific topics you'd like us to cover, please let us know.

  • Streamlined VAT Invoicing: We've simplified the process for obtaining VAT invoices. Our team now creates invoices on the next working day and sends scanned copies every Friday (or the last working day of the week). If, for any reason, we can't, you can expect it on the first working day of the following week.

What's Next: A Vision for the Year Ahead

In year five, our focus is on solidifying our foundation and extending our support to you. Here's what you can anticipate:

  1. New Hosting Plans: We're introducing a new category of plans beyond the Pro tier at a highly competitive price point. Get ready for even more options that cater to your specific needs.

  2. Revamped Website: A new website frontend for the info page is on the horizon. This will make it easier for users to access information quickly and intuitively.

  3. Global Reach: We're expanding beyond Nepal with a dedicated storefront in another country. This is a significant step toward reaching a wider audience and providing top-notch services.

  4. Introducing VPS: We are excited to announce the incorporation of VPS (Virtual Private Server) services within our product line within the next 12 months. This addition will offer even more flexibility for your hosting needs.

  5. New IT Services: We're proud to announce new categories of IT services, including website development, mobile app development, graphics designing, SEO solutions, digital marketing, and more. We aim to provide you with end-to-end solutions for all your IT needs in the year to follow.

Your feedback and ideas have been instrumental in our growth. We welcome your thoughts as we venture into this exciting new phase. Our commitment to exceptional service and customer satisfaction remains steadfast.

Thank you for being a part of this remarkable journey. Your trust and support continue to drive us, and we look forward to serving you for many more years to come.

Warm Regards,
Babal.Host family
