Dedicated server and VDS changes

Post by Edge100x » Mon May 08, 2017 3:17 pm

We've switched to having a separate Windows cost for dedicated servers now -- and lowered prices a bit for all dedicated machines and VDSes at the same time.

We're breaking out the Windows cost for two main reasons: because it simply costs us less to run Linux, at least after a machine is set up; and because we've been seeing a lot of confusion from Windows customers who have been comparing our base prices (which have always included the Windows license) to other companies' base prices (which almost never include the Windows license). We're actually quite competitive with our machine pricing versus other companies that use server-grade components and quality bandwidth, and we want to make sure that comes through!

In terms of the VDS price decrease, most packages have been reduced in price. The six-core option has come down from $47.99 to $39.99, for instance -- a savings of almost 17%.

If you already have dedicated machine with us, make sure to contact us so that we can adjust your month-to-month pricing going forward. If you have a VDS, make sure to refinance through our order page.

Nice! You're now on a more competitive level with those on WHT without the added windows costs.

Awesome.
Less awesome is that this happens right after auto billing but I'll probably upgrade soon anyways.

I believe this was every package except for the one-core.
