    You said nothing of the node hardware which matters greatly to me. Level of support and backround? Why should I give you $50 over KnownHost or WiredTree?

    Edit - OK, Joes Datacenter for network and carriers.

    In regards to ram, hard disk etc. It would be stanard sata drives and ram would be upgraded as required. Dual processor xeon servers. As a rule we would not have more than 10 VPS per node.

    Have to have 15K SAS RAID 10 disks for VPS at $50 a pop. And it's good to know exactly what processors are used (like newer dual quads).

    you mentioned 10 vps @ 50$ each = 500$ total
    RAM = 1GB x 10 = 10GB
    Lets assume spare RAM for brustable = 2gb
    so you are going with a 12GB node.

    I checked softlayer's dedi's and for 12GB ram with dual Xeon processor, the price is 500$+ with only 1 HD 250GB Sata II.

    you also mentioned 100GB storage, so you will require 1TB+ HD for the VPSes.

    + you need person(s) for support 24/7 + dedicated 1GBP link + IP pool.

    so you should re calc all the figures (resources you are going to offer and the price per VPS)

    I never said they would be $50 each nor did i say we were going to have our servers with softlayer. So figures do not need re-calculating

    I guess we were missing something here.

    That's exactly my point. $50 roughly falls within the region between $40 and $60. Thank you.

    I think you may have a tough time pushing VPSes in that price range if you're using Joe's. They seem to offer a pretty solid value for their price point; on the other hand, in the $40-$60 range I'd be looking for a more premium grade network.

    Maybe load up the memory right away to avoid downtime if you upgrade. Its relatively cheap -- though I suppose that's relative to your top end.

    As good as nginx is, I think offering something more standard like Apache would be more appealing to the average user.

    Adding nginx to a cPanel installation is extremely simple if you don't do any customization.

    It wouldn't hurt.
