    It seems the promotion codes won’t work, you still get full prices for both offerings.

    • Hi Joss

      Sorry about that I have a habbit of typing LET instead of LEB, all fixed now.

      So everyone is aware this offer is 256MB for €2.50 or 512MB for €5.00 p/month the offer was sent in with EUR as the base currency so the USD value in the offer may be slightly off with the exchange rates.

      Thanks again for posting the offer guys.

    Any extra discounts for payment for 6 months or 1 year?

    • Hi Glass,

      They are discounted as far as I can go already :)

      I had considered doing bigger discounts on yearly packages when coming up with the deal but in the end I just discounted as far as possible and decided not to penalise people for wanting to pay monthly :)

      It is very cheap for a UK Xen service I think.

      Indeed I worked a deal out with Sean from OpenITC for the server, he supplies the IP space, the server is located in Rapidswitch Maidenhead.

        Sorry, just to be clear since I already have a VPS from OpenITC – is this an OpenITC server or you are sharing only the IPs?

    • Hi Kurnia,

      Your VPS was shutdown because it had to many services loading at boot as I have explained a few times in a few places. I fixed this for you and got your server up within minutes, this was not a problem with your actual sites.

  10. Pawan:


    Is it possible to get Ubuntu 12.04 LTS support? I am thinking long term, so, is this price
    going to be same if I take it straightaway for say for example 2 years?

    Please reply soon.

    • Hi Pawan,

      Yes Ubuntu 12.04 is available now, you can install it from SolusVM once you order, the price you pay upon ordering is the price for the life of the product.
