    JaguarPC Memory prices ???

    Hello,
    I have a VPS with JaguarPC that is pretty Cheap.
    I'm paying about 17-18$ per month which is ok.

    They do not have such a great service, so If I was to pay more, i'd probably choose another more serious provider.

    Anyway that's not the point.
    Recently I wanted to upgrade RAM and i found out that upgrading with 128 more costs 10$ per month !!!
    That is more than 50% of the whole VPS i'm renting!!!

    I found prices very expensive for upgrade and I want to know if this makes sense to any of you.
    Paying 17-18$ for a whole VPS and 10$ more for 128 extra ram!!!

    What is the spec of the VPS before your upgrade?

    Ok, this is where I'm amazed by what people expect for their cash, you say the service isn't that great, do you not wonder why if you are only paying ~20$?

    With regard to upgrade costsw, RAM is the single most expensive part of a VPS package for a provider, diskspace and processor time cost nearly nothing, RAM is the major cost issue. So don't be surprised that it costs nearly half as much again to upgrade your package!

    I did not choose to pay ~20$, they choosed to cost their price $~20!

    I expect good service when i'm paying what they ask for!
    I'm happy with what I'm paying.

    This is 2 different things, dont get confused!
    Besides that, who can guarantee a good service for more expensive price?

    JaguarPC are reliable and good (so far), including good prices.

    I just didnt get why RAM is so expensive compared to VPS Prices.
    That's all, but if you say RAM is the most expensive part of a VPS for the provider, then that's fair enough!

    Ram is expensive, have you thought of upgrading to a freedom package on the new specials we have? If not get with me I might be able to help you out.

    To be honest I have though of that.
    But I dont know if I prefer having 2 Discovery on different nodes or 1 Freedom.

    Is there any special offer about upgrading to Freedom plan at the moment? I'm interested in!

    Thanks for replying to my post,
    much appreciated!!!

    Simon.

    Back to the OP's question... for 128 megs of RAM, $10 is a very low price. So yes, it is a reasonable fee for that allocation.

    One final caveat to the above quoted post: Yes, they chose to price out their plans at that rate... but you DID choose to pay that rate. No one forced you to sign up with them, right? The choice was your's and your's alone. Just something to keep in mind.

    $10 for 128mb sounds fair to me. My provider quoted me $7 per 64mb.

    I'm happy with them, I'm happy with what I pay, I'm happy in general.

    I'm happy I pay what they ask for and everyone is happy!

    Thanks for your replies, I guess 10$ for memory is fine.
