    Are there any other options available? e.g. 4GB (or more)? 200GB or more HD or SSD?

    So, why exactly are you sending sensitive information, including my password for both the service and the VPS itself, in the clear? This is not only unprofessional, it’s insecure. This service is worthless for anyone.

      This issue has been resolved to my personal satisfaction. An update from IonSwitch should be forthcoming. I’m pretty proud of IonSwitch for taking ownership of their mistake and correcting it. Thanks Nick Bogle – IonSwitch for being upfront about it.
