The first isn't true. When you create the service in Emerald, you check
the "termed discount" if you want the service to receive the discount
you have associated to your pay periods. Therefore, you would check it
for your PPP and uncheck it for your domain hosting.

You would have to create to MBRs for them or have them pay the same
term for both services.
