  • [QUOTE=KmartSqrl;36041451]Couldn't you scale a few teras down if they're not selling and sell more megas now then? :P[/QUOTE] Oddly enough, no. If I could, I would. The provider whom supplies the servers in question places a limit on how many IP addresses they'll assign per server at 28 IP addresses (or 30, depending how you have things setup). With a server that has 24GB of RAM, less 1GB assigned to dom0, that leaves you with about 0.85GB per IP address. If you sold only 256MB slices, then you'd fill only 7GB of the server and make only $140. Take out WHMCS/SolusVM licensing fees and you're not left with enough to cover the cost of the server. That's why I try to maintain a balance of different sizes of VPSes on each server.

  • I must say I am a fan of using the command line. I didn't really know much when I first started with a server from the command line, but you can learn a lot by doing it.

  • [QUOTE=TrueNash;36135921]Just bought up an EU Tera, I'll be relinquishing my Nano shortly for anyone who wants to get in there[/QUOTE] Not quite the way it works sadly.

  • [QUOTE=TrueNash;36136697]So the cancelled Nano won't be available for someone else to order?[/QUOTE] Sadly not. We had a bunch of folks with large-ish slices cancel to move to SSD VPSes back when they launched, so the non-SSD nodes are in an under-filled state at the moment. Need to sell big slices to fix the balance.
  • Avatar of T3hGamerDK
  • I might be purchasing some big-ish slice in some of the coming months. *MIGHT* But I just came back in the thread to say that this is certainly great deals and GREAT stuff! I hope you get more stock in, and more people to purchase :)

  • [QUOTE=TrueNash;36960930]Is there any chance of ever being able to get hold of an extra IP address?[/QUOTE] At a small extra cost as long as you're not on EU non-SSD, yes. Go ahead and ticket if you want me to set that up for you.

  • SSH yes. As these I believe are just bare linux minimal installs, however I believe you can install a GUI on them if you wish. Hexxeh doesn't have any windows VPSs I don't think.

  • [QUOTE=Gamz365;37103300]These come with RDP access, correct?[/QUOTE] It's Xen I am sure if you give him a license and an image he can put it onto a VPS for you.

  • I don't do Windows because from what I've seen, it just doesn't run very well. Plus it [i]really[/i] blows for smaller VM sizes.

  • Restocked. We have a couple Mega EU, a bunch of Tera EU, a couple Peta SSD EU and one Nano US in stock now.
  • Avatar of Hexxeh
  • Just restocked again, here's what's available: Nano EU Peta EU-SSD Nano US Mega US I know I said I wasn't going to offer Nano EU again, but I released a bunch of capacity I had reserved for myself since I was finished with the project that was using it, so now they're available for you to buy. Get them whilst they're hot, expecting these to sell out soon, had plenty of people asking for them in the past few months. Place to order is the same as usual: [url]http://vps.hexxeh.net[/url]
