Premium Membership on the Nexus sites is a way of donating to the upkeep of the sites while also gaining some advantageous perks for your browsing experience both on the sites and within the Nexus Mod Manager. Most importantly, without the support of our Premium Members the Nexus sites would not be able to keep running.
Premium Membership can be bought for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or for a lifetime (lifetime membership will never expire). If your Premium Membership expires your account is automatically moved in to our "Supporter" membership group that continues to offer you some perks including a completely ad free browsing experience on all the Nexus sites. Even if you buy one month of Premium Membership you'll never see an ad on the Nexus sites again. For life!
All the files we offer on the sites are capped at 1024 kilobytes a second (1MB/second) to ensure we can offer a stable service for everyone. We remove this cap for Premium Members so you can download files faster than 1024kb/second if your connection can handle it.
On top of uncapped download speeds we also have four Premium-only file servers. These are file servers that only Premium Members can download from and they're based in different geographic locations.
While normal members are limited to 1 download thread per file Premium Members are allowed up to 4 which can greatly improve your download speeds whether you're using NMM or downloading manually through your browser.
No matter what amount of time you choose to buy you'll never see adverts on any Nexus site ever again, even after your Premium Membership expires.
All premium members can store 5 times as many private messages. The total archive size is 500 compared to 100 for normal members. Your archive size will remain at 500 even after your Premium Membership time expires.
An image share section for Supporters only. The terms and conditions for this section are different and more open and liberal than the normal image share section.
What your money pays for
It takes a lot of hardware to keep the Nexus network up and running. Here's what we're currently using:Staff
We hire 4 full-time staff, and sometimes independent freelancers, to work on the Nexus sites. Not only do these people keep the sites running but they're also working on lots of new improvements and features that ensure we're at the forefront of mod hosting. Your money helps to pay their bills and also to hire on new staff whenever possible. The more staff we have, the better the sites become.The rainy day fund
Becoming a Premium Member is easy and you should be automatically upgraded to a Premium Member once your payment is processed. We process Premium Memberships through our forums and we use Pay Pal as our main transaction processor; they're fast, safe and secure and in most countries you don't need a Pay Pal account in order to buy Premium Membership. If you don't like Pay Pal for whatever reason we offer an alternative payment method through a secondary processor, 2Checkout. You can select this payment processor when it comes to paying.
Every member on the Nexus Sites is important to us but people who help to financially support the site are especially important as they've used some of their hard earned cash to help us out. If you have any questions or encounter any problems then please use the site contact form on the forums and we'll get back to you very quickly.
Want to go premium? The subscription process is simple and your account will upgrade automatically once you're done.
