    We don't allow anything IRC related, sorry.

    The node you would mostly likely be placed on uses SAVVIS.

    We do not place a connection cap on a VPS, as we feel it is not needed.

    Virtuozzo at this time does not support any FreeBSD versions. We only offer Debian 3.1 at this time.

    Please feel free to contact sales if you have any additional questions!

    By default, no. We leave that choice up to the user. On a V2 it is $5 a month for cPanel (with this special), and on a V3 and V4, it is free.

    What are the specs of the host machine? and how much space is provided in the offsite backups?

    Also your order form is screwed up, billing cycle for v2:
    1-month @ $22.50
    3-months @ $89.97
    6-months @ $179.94
    12-months @ $359.88

    Prices beyond 1 month are messed up on all plans.

    The node you will most likely be placed on:

    AMD Dual Opteron 246
    500 GB drive (SATA)
    4GB of RAM

    For this special, the space of the offsite backup is equal to the plan's space you signup for.

    That is my mistake, and I apologize for that. The 25% off only applies to monthly orders. If you wish to purchase on a non-monthly basis, please feel free to contact sales and I am sure we can work out something for you.

    Thanks for the kind words Donnie, much appreciated! And of course we do have a setup for the failover of the main VPS nodes, but that's more along the lines of internal information.

    Not currently. From the tests we ran (in our enviornment), the Opteron outperformed the Xeon, for about the same price. So to us, it simply makes sense to use AMD.
