VPS Plans (Prices without discount):

We use the xen credit scheduling system for CPU allocations. Larger VPS have a larger amount of credits, and therefore have a higher priority over CPU time. A 256MB VPS for example gets twice as much priority over CPU as a 128MB VPS. All VPS can burst upto the full power of the host machine.

Each VPS comes with 1 IP Address by default, additional IPs are available for 0.50/Month per IP, subject to RIPE justification.

Q. How long have you been in business?
A. 5 Years, our parent company has been trading since 2006.

Q. Are you a reseller?
A. Absolutly not! We own and operate full racks of our own equipment.

Q. Can I run my own kernel?
A. Unfortunatley your VPS shares the kernel with the host machine. You can however compile and load kernel modules. You can however run your own kernel if you chosoe a Pygrub enabled OS template.

Q. What version of Xen / Kernel do you use?
A. When a new hardware node is deployed, we use the latest stable Xen release, which is currently 4.00, and a stable CentOS/RHEL5 2.6.18 based kernel.

A. We use enterprise-class rackmount hardware from Supermicro. Our latest nodes are based around 8 Core AMD Opteron or Intel Xeon CPU's with 16GB DDR3 ECC RAM, and Hardware RAID-10 arrays with hot-swap disks. We do have some older Intel Core2Quad systems, but they often have only 10-15 VPS on and still offer great performance.

Q. What is the connection speed?
A. Each VPS hardware node has a dedicated, non-contended 100Mbit (Full Duplex) connection onto our Edge Switches, which in turn have multiple gigabit uplinks to the network core. VPS can burst upto the full speed of the host machines 100Mbit connection. Since this is not shared, we are quite happy to provide upto 10,000GB of bandwidth on individual VPS, if you require it.

A. Typically between 20 and 40, and we have a maximum density policy in place of 40 VPS per hardware node.
