Two new promotions to celebrate the new year!

Post by Edge100x » Fri Jan 26, 2018 12:09 am

VDSes: Coupon code XBMWZV will give 10% off the base cost of a 4-core or larger VDS
Game servers: Coupon code FBUNWU gives 10% off the order

It's not a sale, but we're also reconfiguring dedicated server pricing a bit, in a way that should help people who are planning to rent long-term. Specifically, we've implemented a lower monthly rate that we pay for with a higher setup fee -- customers pay more up-front but then save each month. Compared to pre-holiday pricing, customers will make up the extra setup fee in three months, after which the server is just plain lower cost for the customer.

To make sure that current customers won't be left out of the dedicated server change, we're allowing anyone who already has a machine to switch to the new model by paying the difference in cost between the new setup fee and what they originally paid. Customers can also always stick with what they have already, thanks to our price grandfathering policy, which guarantees that a service will have the same price for as long as it is kept in the same configuration.

This promotion has ended now! To those who upgraded and used it, thank you.

In response to customer feedback, we have now changed the dedicated server order page to separate out the one-time cost that is used to bring down the monthly price as a checkbox option. This gives new customers the ability to choose a server without it (as we have traditionally offered), and it makes it more clear that it's not part of the cost to set up a server.

Servers ordered with that price-reduction option checked are considered different services than those without it, since they have different attributes when ordered.

We will continue to offer the ability to add this option to existing services after-the-fact without ordering a new machine. For a limited time, due to how we originally rolled it out by improperly lumping it in with the setup fee, old customers can do this at a discounted rate that factors in the original setup fee that they paid.
