    I think most of us avoid instant setup becuase of the amount of fraud that comes through with instant setup. Look for providers that use HSPcomplete as this is the fastest way to setup a VPS in our experience. Once an order is approved in HSPcomplete, if it is a VPS without control panel, it sets up in a few minutes, if it is with Plesk give it about 10 minutes, if it is cPanel, give it an 60-90 minutes.

    I think that most host don't have it because they are dumbs that can't write a script, and just take what's available (which doesn't have it as default). But that's only my humble opinion.

    Look at hosting providers that uses our dtc-xen system, it has instant account activation. Note that sometimes, if asking for a Debian setup, it can hang on the operating system setup because apt-proxy has few bugs and sometimes it doesn't get all the packages. But you can re-start the os reinstallation and it will be all ok.

    Instant setup = much higher rate of fraud, I don't think anybody is going to dispute that.

    Having an account scammed doesn't hurt that much when it comes to VPS hosting (if no domain name is given "for free"). Once you see it's the case, you just delete it. I don't think this is why so few companies have instant account activation.

    And by the way, since we have instant account activation, it didn't change our (very low) fraud rate.
