Paid Services & Frequently Asked Questions
uCoz aside from providing it's wide range of free services available to users, also provides a range of premium and paid features which allow webmasters to further expand their sites capabilities and functionality.
The purchasing of paid services is available through the Control Panel by navigating to Paid Services
Users are able to purchase premium features either as part of a package, or as *separate services.
*How do I purchase a separate service?
Due to the recent release of the new pricing structure and service packages there have been a lot of changes in how the system now provides separate services. Separate services are now only available to be purchased on top of an existing purchased package within 24 hours of activation
. After purchasing a premium package navigate to Control Panel > Paid Services
and find the "Buy a separate service" button as show below:
You will then be able to choose a range of options as indicated, depending on the package purchased and whether the service is already included as part of the package.
Keep in mind while deciding on the additional services you would like to apply to your site that these will only be available for the term of the purchased package.
I have paid for a service, I can see it in the "Paid orders" section, but the service is not active. What is wrong and how do I fix it?
Most frequently this case arises where a preexisting package is actively enabled on the website. Two packages can not be enabled on the website simultaneously and as a result the system will wait until the previous package has expired to activate your new purchase.
If you require the newly paid service to be enabled straight away, you need to cancel the previous service. You can complete this by navigating to Control Panel > Paid Services > Paid Orders > Select The Relevant Order > Cancel
. NB: When you cancel the service, the remaining funds that weren't used will be added to your account, so you will be able to use them in future. This are listed as Personal Account funds.
What is a premium account/premium user?
Premium accounts are those websites, the owners of which have paid for a service or a package of services that costs not less than $3 once
. After paying for such service or a package of services, user's account (website) is considered to be premium. Premium users have some benefits
. For example, premium accounts are active regardless of their attendance. So they can never be removed for inactivity.
Robots.txt file of premium websites is unblocked after paying (before the quarantine is over).

. I have several websites. Can I buy packages of services for all the websites at once or do I have to pay for a package at each website separately?
Yes. For now you have to pay for each website separately. When the package of services expires, what is going to happen with additional Megabytes I have paid for to increase the disk space?
When this package or the service expires, the additional Megabytes are going to be taken away. All the entries will remain. All you have to do is either pay for this service once again or clear the disk space. Otherwise, users' activity on the website will be blocked. (They will not be able to add entries etc.)
