This summer we're making changes in our Basic plan, and at the same time we're offering an amazing 35% off the Premium plan until the end of July 2009. So you can go to your family site now and grab an extra year for cheap before the discount runs out.
Recently, we've seen the cost of storage dropping, while maintaining large trees became much more resource intensive. Hence we decided to decrease the maximum number of people in a tree on a Basic site and balance that with more than twice the storage for photos, videos and documents.
If you have a Basic site that was created before April 2009, these changes will apply to your site as of August 1st. Sites created after April already have the new capacities from the beginning, so no changes there, except that if you own such a site, you too can benefit from this discount on an upgrade to Premium.
So, if you've been using your site to share photos, videos and documents with your family, this is good news for you because you'll now get more than double the storage for free, 250 MB instead of the 100 MB you had previously.
However, if the size of your tree is above 250 people, you will now need to switch to a Premium subscription to get that capacity. To make the step to Premium easier for you, we started this summer special.
For $4 a month you can boost your family site on MyHeritage and also gain access to all Premium features of our Family Tree Builder software.
Nobody is forced to upgrade: even folks who will need an upgrade can keep their current tree as is without anything being deleted and without losing access, without upgrading.
So don't miss out on this 35% discount and upgrade your site before August 1st. Getting your family closer together is surely worth $4 a month.
And a Premium subscription gives you a whole range of benefits. Your
family site will have a much larger family tree capacity of 2500 people, increased storage of 500 MB for photos and documents, a Premium badge next to your name on the site, priority customer support, and an advertising-free site.
But that's not all, going premium also means access to Premium features of the Family Tree Builder software: all-in-one charts, Smart Match merges, Smart Research as well as the ability to publish documents and videos.
We'll soon release a new version of our popular Family Tree Builder software, with some really nice new features. A Premium subscription will give you access to all these new features without additional fees!
