    is video encoding allowed?

    It depends on what usage it is likely to be and how you are willing to manage the resources yourself. PM specifics and I can give you a better idea.

  • @Ruriko said:

    Video encoding pretty much means using all the CPU you have constantly, there's no way it's going to be allowed on a <$7/mo plan

    Agreed, although if it's something like a video upload site that has low usage and spikey CPU requirements we're happy to work with clients if they are willing to throttle resources.

  • do you allow private tracker ? ( ex : torrent flux )

    Private torrents are fine. Please note; however we do act on DMCA notices. I include below our stance on stored content:

    Shardhost welcomes clients who wish to store legal public and private content on it's services.

    Any DMCA notices received by Shardhost will be forwarded to the client via support ticket. Clients must act on and reply to the DMCA notices within 24 hours. Failure to act will lead to service suspension. Service will not be restored until Shardhost is given permission to remove the offending content

    Repeated DMCA notices may result in the termination of services. In the event of service termination the client will be notified in writing via support ticket and will be offered an opportunity to take a copy of their data held. Failure to reply to this ticket within 14 days will result in the deletion of data with no opportunity of retrieval

    Clients will ultimately be responsible for DMCA notices resulting from their use of services

    high ram kvm, always enticing.

  • Do you have a non-premium-rated phone number?

    Our phone number is just for the office. As stated in our terms all support is via ticket.

    They are pretty good instances, backed by our 7 day no quibble refund policy also.

  • Excellent deal, cheapest 256MB KVM package I have seen on here :-) Good luck.

    We'll be adding CC payments via stripe shortly.

    Just managed to order one with 512mb. Somehow Fraud checks were triggered twice, but went through with payment the third time. Wait to see how excellent it would be for development.

    I have question about "double/triple resources on any plan for double/triple the price".
    what If i buy 30/yr 1g kvm and double it and should I be getting 4cpu , 2 ip address as well?

    The second IP would require justification via ticket; however yes CPU doubles also.

    @Sharhost : ok, i though everything double or triple.

    got it, everything but 2nd or 3rd IP need the justification if double or triple cases.
    thanks for the info.

    I know that feeling. Often receive annual payment reminders for services. Did a count of personal VPS, stopped when got to 24
