Can I get a discount?

Last updated: 22 May 2024

All plans here at Magic Pages are already calculated pretty tightly. Website hosting involves some pretty concrete running costs. It's not like traditional software-as-a-service businesses, where adding another user just means that one more person looks at the same code, on the same server.

To host your Ghost website, I need to make sure that it has enough resources allocated 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I can't overstretch these resources – otherwise your site will crash at some point.

And well, neither of us wants that.

So, no, there are no discounts available.

But what about purchasing power parity?

Personally, I love the concept of purchasing power parity (PPP). However, PPP is not a magic wand that works for everything.

To understand that, let's take the example from above again: a traditional software-as-a-service business can offer you PPP discounts, because adding you as another user will – in most cases – just mean that they add a few new rows to their databases, have a tiny bit more load on their servers, when you use their tools, and every now and then they'll answer a support request from you.

By granting you a PPP discount, they will still make money. The average margin of SaaS businesses is between 70-85%. So, a 50% discount just cuts into that margin – but their running costs are covered.

For Magic Pages, giving a 50% discount, for example, means that I am close to making a loss hosting your website.

Instead, Magic Pages offers billing in over 30 different currencies, with a smaller regional discout baked into the conversions. This won't resemble the usual 30-50% PPP discounts you see on other websites, but it means that your bank won't charge you conversion fees (I am taking that hit) and a small discount.

The USD pricing for the Magic Pages Pro Lifetime plan would be USD 349.00. For Indian customers, it is currently set at INR 26,175. The "real" conversion rate from USD 349.00 would be closter to INR 29,000 though, which means there is a ~10% discount already baked in 😉

If your local currency is not automatically supported, please send a quick email to or use the live chat.

What if I represent a non-profit or educational institution?

Because of the things I mentioned above, my ability to give discounts is limited. I might still be able to help out a little, so please also send an email to with some information about your institution. I'll get back to you within a day.
