    Hi, do you offer rDNS for both v4/v6? Any 512MB Ram offers?

    I see you offer Server 2008 / 2012 on the KVM option, but only 10GB SSD. I’m guessing this particular deal doesn’t really “work” with either of those operating systems.

  5. Where is your guarantee for “100% uptime”?
    I can’t find anything about it on your website.

    Can I install OpenBSD on Shark 512KVM?

    • Spirit:

      You can’t. Infact you can’t install or reinstall anything as you will stuck with intidal OS without anything to select in SolusVM CDrom.

      • There is currently an issue affecting Shark 256KVM that doesn’t show templates, but that’s an isolated issue and we are working on the fix.

    • We allow all custom ISOs, but there is a small annual fee we charge. Send a ticket to our sales department.

    Any extra fee for installing Ubuntu on Shark 512KVM?

    Also, the LEBKVM code amounts to a 46% discount on Shark 512KVM. Would it be possible to get a 46% off code for Shark 1024KVM? I believe that would take it to $10.80/month.

    • The Ubuntu template has been problematic, so we’ve been setting that up manually. There’s no extra fee. If there’s any issue with the template, we’ll issue you a refund. I can offer you a slightly less discounted code for the 1024KVM, send in a ticket.

        Thanks. How about CentOS, can we upgrade that to 6.4?

  8. FYI – I had quite of short (2-9 minute) network outages for the few days I had this vps. Support was slow to respond – nearly 8 hours before I got a “We’re looking into it.”
    I cancelled my account and they said they would refund my money.

    • You’ve been refunded. As I said in the ticket, our network has been up 100% of the time. The issue was specific to your VPS. Thanks.

      • Edit: To clarify, Shawn was refunded in less than a day after he sent the refund request.
