Services play a big part whether you would choose a monthly subscription or yearly. Most hosting providers offer a discount for yearly packages also.

IMO: I would suggest finding a reliable hosting provider, try their services for a few months and if you feel comfortable with what they offer, invest in a yearly subscription due to being eligible for the yearly discount, locked in prices, stability (not having to miss monthly payments) and so forth.

Personally prefer monthly. Regardless of the reliability of the host I like the flexibility of paying monthly. Situations change and like the option of moving between packages and providers.

Always preferred monthly myself, as stated above, situations change and I don't know where I'll be in 12 months myself let alone the business I'm paying.

Depends on whether ot not you assess the purchase as an asset, if it's worth it and adds value to your business such as an owned billing license like WHMCS, go for it. Things go wrong, you can always sell it and move on.

Hosting contracts, they're a bit different so I advise anyone purchasing an annual package to take a look at the fine print, if things do go wrong, you can see yourself having only paid for something a month ago with 11 months remaining and it's already gone.

I prefer monthly, although I could save money in paying yearly,but i don't recommend anyone to buy 1 year in advance due to much scam in the last time.Better to go with month-to-month plans.

I guess it depends on what you are getting for your money.

Yearly seems quite common with web hosting itself. and then monthly for everything else.

I prefer annually if it is on the smaller side like shared hosting with a reputable company. It saves me time when I have to look at monthly bills and it saves me money over the term. Yearly cycles are good for me because I don't have to worry about an interruption in service when I forget to process the payment for the month.

Well, usually depends on the price difference. If you can save more by paying yearly, then why not?

On shared hosting i would pay yearly. It is cheaper on most hosts.

For other hosting solutions probably monthly payment would be my choice

Annual for the likes of a mail server / vps
Or DNS server.

But nothing else, monthly is best + it gives hosts incentive to look after you.

Personally for me, it depends on several variables, including but not limited to:
- Price
- Reputation
- Reliability
- Length of operation
- Is it a need or want

When my customers pay yearly, I ofter set discount free 2 months. This is very helpful, so they 'll be longer time with us.
