Suggestion to hosts with multiple geographical locations

It seems there are quite a lot of people that collect geographically distributed VPSes to for example set up a redundant DNS cluster. If you're a host that offers a lot of different locations geographically, it may be interesting for the LEB/LET community to offer a 'package deal' that includes one small VPS in every location (or for example, you can allow someone to pick 3 locations from your total range, but only 1 VPS per location). I think something like that would work fairly well :)

  • I'd be up for that, ultra-low-end-boxes, 64MB or less?

    I don't get it, I mean I understand the idea, but who doesn't offer each location directly, or do you want a better deal when taking all locations?

    We already offer that... One VPS in each of the following: Illinois, Kansas and California with our Blue1 plan for $35 annually. We just don't typically advertise it, but prefer to get tickets/irc requesting it...

    Thats how i understand it. Get a discount because buying in bulk. I like the idea :)

    Yes, that is the basic idea - for a customer it would be good because he instantly has a bunch of VPSes in each location, and gets a bulk discount... for a host it would be good because he has a guaranteed sale of several VPSes, and has a customer that would otherwise probably have spread out his purchase over several hosting companies.

    If only I had stock at all times in all locations, and a discount on top of it? Yeah, I have no trouble selling out faster than I can afford new, so discount is not on my horizon, but some may like the idea.

    Not that I don't like where your mind is going here, but there are some decent and affordable CDN choices.

    Obviously this isn't very useful an idea for hosts that sell out instantly :P

    Sure, but a CDN does not provide DNS services or basically anything other than content delivery.

    Cannot really afford to drop our prices anymore, Likewise with what @miTgiB said not alot of providers can keep stock levels similar on all locations.
