Liquidweb 24 month VPS offer - too good to be true?

Has anyone seen the Liquidweb 24 month VPS offer?
https://www.liquidweb.com/products/vps/

$360 for a managed 2GB RAM SSD VPS with cPanel or Plesk for 2 years.

I used them a few years ago and the service was really exceptional.

Obviously since it's going to renew at $1440, I wouldn't intend to keep it for more than 2 years, but 2 years is a long time and it seems too good to be true.

  • Are you kidding me?rick.I think it's still expensive.

    they are very costly.
    buy any unmanaged dedicated server hire server management company.

    not too good it is a bad idea to buy this expensive server.

    (Disclaimer - Dont know anything about liquidweb) The cheapest I know of is @MikePT at 25 EUR a month (there may exist cheaper ones too).
    And that makes it 600 EUR just for the management alone. ...

    But hes getting a managed 2 GB ram VPS + a panel inclusive of DDOS protection for 15USD. (Forget what comes after 2 years as the intention of @jh is not to go beyond the initial 2)

    I too used liquidweb VPS for one of my clients 3 years ago. Then they had storm-servers and did exceptionally well. But it comes for a price. The support was also very attentive and quick in fixing anything and helping even on site's scripts! But again that costs a fortune for a VPS. But the renewal price OP has mentioned can only fit big-pocket users!

    Knownhost managed starts at $40/month (2c, 4GB RAM, 75GB disk, 2TB bandwidth, 2 IP, incl. DA)...not as cheap as this intro offer but cheaper at regular rates.

    I wonder how support compares between the two.

    (I'm pretty sure @jonathanspw 's answer would be biased ;-)

    For LET support, please visit the support desk.

    2GB with a full cPanel/Plesk stack, that’ll OOM idle.

    Liquid is no bullshit premium provider. If you think folks like nexusbytes is premium - try liquidweb ;) it's entirely different dimension.

    knownhost is pretty good but not on par with liquidweb
