    * Price your own VPS. Get additional 50% memory, disk space, or transfer (YOUR CHOICE)

    OK, let's try something that I have not tried before.

    Let's play the Price your own VPS game. You tell us the specs of the VPS you want and the price you want to pay it. If it is reasonable and we like it, we will accept your offer.

    And Guess what? if your offer is accepted, we will add 50% to one of the following: memory, disk space, or monthly transfer (your choice).

    All VPS will come as semi-managed. Though we expect customers to be able to manage their own VPS, we are here to assist our customers. When needed, you can contact us and we will assist you with your VPS administration. Our administration fee is $75/hour billable in 15 minutes increment. But for common tasks (upgrading MySQL, PHP, etc) we usually do this for free.

    Server specs:
    Dell PowerEdge rackmount servers
    32 GB of ECC DDR FBDIMM memory (guaranteeing physical, not swapping, memory for your VPS!)
    RAID10 drives with hadrdware RAID controller
    Internap and Mzima in BGP (we manage our own BGP network, AS33552)
    semi-managed VPS
    Equinix data center (NYC Metro East Coast)

    OK, so let the game begins

    I got the special fluidvps 512 free trial in the last promotion. I think their VPS service is relatively new compared to their fluid hosting but the server speed is nice. You're right, the price on their web may not that cheap but they seems to assign you high CPU clock so don't worry the extra money you pay.

    We actually have been doing VPS for some 6 years. In fact, we were one of SWSoft first customers when they released their HSPComplete/Virtuozzo product. Only a few years ago did we separate our VPS division into its own bradn, FluidVPS.

    All these years give us the expertise to operate a VPS. As you can see, our VPS is rock stable and we do not have any customer, all these years, that have anything bad to say about their VPS. Simply rock solid VPS

    Its a pity people couldn't be serious with such a good offer like this.
    Unmetered 100Mbps for 30USD is not anywhere near feasible.

    20GB Hdd
    256mb Ram
    512 Burstable
    1-2Ip's
    Unmetered 10mbps or 3tb on 100Mbps
    Any control panel
    No preferred OS
    $30USD

    This probably isnt really feasible either but if it is send me a PM

    Dave if something similar to this is possible than PM me too. I am fine with some less disk space or bandwidth (1 TB or even 500 GB) but needs good RAM and MySql connectoins for my drupal site. OS is obviously linux.

    At this moment we don't really offer unmetered VPS transfer (though we may in the future if we see a strong demand for it). How much transfer do you actually use/need currently?

    It's sad that most people don't take serious on this offer. FluidVPS isn't an overseller(as well as their Fluidhosting) so don't expect some super low price or super great deal. Instead, you get a semi-managed low-end dedicated server performance.

    Their speed may not be the best because I guess they are on SATA RAID10, not SAS SCSI 15k, but overall the sever speed is great. For reference, I currently have one cheap self-managed 512MB VPS in other company but the fluidvps performance is a lot faster.

    HKPlane, glad to see you enjoy your VPS. We have recently upgraded our VPS nodes and clients have been happy about it

    The RAID10 actually does help quite a bit in terms of the drive performance. The drives, even SATA RAID10, is not the bottleneck. But we also have 10K rpm SAS RAID10 nodes and for customers with high I/O, we will migrate them to these SAS nodes.

    Here is one of our busier node. The node comes with 8 cores, so the server load is actually low. As you can see, even with SATA drives, the I/O is of no issue:

    Dave, how does this sounds -

    15GB disk space on our RAID10 drive
    256mb Ram + 128 MB upgrade (384 MB total) SLM memory
    2 IP
    250 GB monthly transfer
    HSPC Control Panel (Virtuozo default/native control panel)
    CentOS 4.2
    USD$25/month ?

    We can have this configuration for first 3 months and than can move on to higher configuration ? the site is fairly small with 50k uniques/month and only takes few MB space. It is the database and database backups which takes lot of space, but certainly it can't be more than few GB.

    DO get back to me asap as I am looking to move quickly, may be in 24 hours. I am loosing lot of money as my sites are down.

    poseidon, how about $30/month with 6 month prepamynet. If you prepay for 12 month, I will get you one month free. In addition, I will put your site onto our node with SAS drives. I really believe the $5/month extra is not too much additional to ask for an enterprise quality stable VPS experience you will get:

    Hardware node: well, nothing compared to other hardware nodes you have gotten to known.
    backup service: we do backup of all VPS multiple times a day with 4 hours interval on to our multi-TB R1Soft CDP backup server.
    bandwidth: Top quality bandwidht, BGP of Internap and Mzima.
    Support: in-house support, nothing is outsourced.
    Data center: Equinix IBX data center, one of the best data center your money can get into in

    They run with SLM, not UBC. I guess they don't have burstable ram feature(don't know much about SLM)??? But SLM should make a provider difficult to oversales their ram(much like Xen?), so you get guaranteed resources here.

    Also, UBC will use some of your memory for paging, buffer, caching. If you are on 128MB UBC, the chance is you don't actually can access to the 128MB.

    HKPlane and Dave,

    As you both obviously know a lot about this, what could i get for aprox $10 / month?
    I don't have a pretty high budget as you can see, but i want to move my sites, so i want to know what i can get with that.

    Thanks ^^


    EDIT: Also, in case i need to upgrade it later, is that possible?
    I suppose it is... but i guess i don't lose anything if i ask.

    Hi FHDave,

    What can you do with your top level VPS Premium windows package? I don't need that much hard drive space, like half, the bandwidth is good, and all I want installed is VZ Power Panel. No Plesk, no nothing typical IIS6 install and I will install mysql etc. I am looking for a long term relationship here.

    Just had some pointless, time wasting issues with vpsland. All our DNS is done on Linux vps machines in canada. Just looking for a solid Windows VPS provider. We provide development and design for hundreds of web site customers. Please email sts - at - webmastermind.com.

    Kind of urgent so let me know..
    Steve
