Hourly Windows VPS

Hello all! Looking for recommendations for hourly Window VPS. Does Vultr have them?

Comments

  • Most major cloud providers have them.

    Oracle Cloud
    Google Cloud
    Microsoft Azure
    Amazon EC2

    Configuration process and pricing model in these major clouds are very complicated.
    I like the simplicity of Scaleway but they don't do Windows.

    Are Windows license also on an hourly basis? I can see Vultr has one but with an additional $10/month. Do I have to pay the $10/mo as a whole or will it be billed per hour? Also same question for Upcloud.

    Hi,
    for the billing please read below (is a copy from our faq):

    #

    Servers have a price per hour, and you will be billed on an hourly rate. Every 24 hours our system will generate a receipt with a complete usage report. It’s important to have a balance in your account. For details press here. The system is fully automated. We will invoice you only for Add Funds requests.

    Example:
    You have two CP10 HA servers, hourly price is 0,005€ each.

    – You add funds for 10€

    – You will receive an initial 10€ invoice

    – Everyday system will generate a report and will take 0.24€ from your 10€

    – Your balance is estimated to be used within 41 days

    – You not need to do anything, until you receive a Low Balance notification and can add new funds.

    During VM creation system will ask you if you want to use your own license or our. In case you choose our license you will be billed as reported above. Windows license is included on the receipt on an hourly basis.

    For regions, at the moment we have Italy and France. You can choose between two storage modes, HA or NVMe. Please check this link https://www.domflow.it/knowledgebase/4709/HA-or-NVMe-StorageorPackage---which-one-to-choose.html for details.

    During checkout system will ask you for 5€ that is the initial deposit. If you will create VM you start to be billed daily. When you cancel it system will stop billing you and the deposit will stile live for any purchase. It will never expire.

  • +1 for @virtua_cloud. Been using their windows vps for quite a few months and no downtime so far.

    The only issue is if you go the prepaid route, the top-up amount expires in a year if not fully used. Like if you top up your account with 100 bucks you have to use it fully within a year.

    Yes, you are right. The Win license fee is also billed hourly. So, it's really good for testing projects.

    Thank you for your feedback, glad to hear you're pleased with our services 💙.

    Small clarification: every time you top-up, your balance validity is fully extended for one year and we are sending notifications before it expire.
