    Still get $89/mon to pay after applying promo code, whats the problem

    • There is a problem with our promo code system. If you are ordering a dedicated Atom server, please either wait for our billing staff to correct the invoice or make a $40 payment manually. Thanks.

  4. Would it be possible at all to get two dedicated servers that are isolated from each other? I’m talking different rack, different power, different router. Or are all the available servers in the same area of the datacenter?

    The goal would be to minimize the odds of both going down at the same time. Ideally, they’d only go down if there was a full datacenter outage.

      In todays time you don’t really need to worry about power and the DC burning down – I’d rather worry about the network.

      • I will remind myself not to kick those FM200 gas bottles. By the way, my datacentre is 350 meters away from fire station.

    • Our main site is powered by 2 separated substations and the network is multihomed.
      We do have a server room located 14km away from the main site, but the promo won’t apply and will cost extra.

    Is the VPS promo recurring?
    The one year price doesn’t include the promo. I still need to pay $359.00 USD

    • Yes, both the VPS promo and the Atom dedicated are recurring.

        • Sorry for late reply, the promotional servers have been sold out before you posted the question.
          Our Atom servers do not support IPMI. All standard plans on our website use Supermicro motherboard.

    Server is too slow, it took one hour to install MYSQL

    November 16, 2015 @ 1:37 pm | Reply
    • We can’t reproduce your problem. We tried that on another machine on the same subnet and mysql-server installed in less than 10 seconds.
      We are happy to give you a full refund if you don’t want the server.

    Do you have plans for future discounts?

    Please let me know! I would like to purchase the dedicated server option.

    Thanks.
