    swoft solution is fine. Basically just looking for VPS functionality. Dedicated ram, remote access, able to install my own software, and so on.

    capola,

    Trust me, burstable RAM is not possible on Windows based VPS - it's that simple.
    Have a question?

    It would be best if they answer that question. I've personally saw couple of more VPS providers promoting burstable RAM on a Windows based VPS (in most cases something similar to: 256 MB RAM / 1 GB max.).

    For Linux based VPS' that works, other than that it's just a false advertising.
    Have a question?

    Some more hosts that offer Windows VPS:
    www.flexservers.com
    www.webserve.ca
    www.bottomlinecom.net
    www.i-netsolutions.net
    www.amenworld.com

    And a2b2.com do offer Windows VPS but you have to email them for a quote.

    In our case, a mistake. We were used to setting the VPS up under Linux where you set the RAM as the guarantee, not a boundary.

    I recently realized this was not the case with Windows, sorry for any misunderstanding.

    We have nothing to gain by lying to you guys, all untruthful statements eventually get caught, which is one of the reasons this forum is so useful.

    It does say something about your knowledge of your own products though. You should be careful with that.

    Add EuroVPS to that list.

    www.eurovps.com

    I've been testing one of their windows vps's for some time now, and it seems rock solid.
