    Hey Peeeps

    We just started running our new VPS servers today! I was just wondering what a good starting price point is? We use OpenVZ on a 16 core quad xeon system, 128 GB RAM, with raid 10 SSDs and Raid 10 Enterprise HD's for the bulk.

    Our network is multi-honed in Las Vegas with the fastest connections available out here.

    Thanks!

      I would love to have a business plan if I knew more about VPS, I have read a lot and talked to the techs but it's all new to us. We have been hosting since 2001 just never did VPS. The specs can be anything.

      Right now we start at $18.99 for a gig of ram, 10gb space, 10MPS bandwidth, 1 core of 4 quad CPUs.

      Thanks Tar, I was thinking of a really cheap plan like that.

      this sounds like an amazing opportunity, I get to pay you 18.99 a month while you 'learn' how to provide vps

      much better than paying 10 a month to digital ocean who know what they are doing

    • If you're serious about vps don't do let pricing. These folks expect rock bottom prices and platinum support.

      Linode Digital Ocean Vultr are the lowest you should consider matching. With that said openvz hosts are a dime a dozen. You'll really have to have something special in that market.

      Have I mentioned how much I hate auto correct recently?

    • openvz shouldn't be allowed to be advertised as vps

      Agree, but at least he was funny, and the OP did take it rather graciously.

      That said, I do think the thread question is a bit oddly put. Is he asking for others to do his research? That doesn't sound productive in this case where he probably knows his own strengths better than we do. Also, I'm sure the OP (and/or company) does have skills, but saying outright that "if I knew more about [it]" I'd have a business plan, on a forum like this does seem ill-advised.

      Getting feedback from customers, that's exactly how big companies do it and the movie industry and just about any major company.

      In LA movie studios pay a ton to bring in regular people to watch a show before it came out to get honest feedback and direction. Seriously though from a business perspective, it's important to understand this. Dominoes does the same, sometimes with products they are just starting with.

      That why websites have feedback forms and send out requests for surveys ect...

      It would really be amazing if a business that was successful without getting feedback from customers.

      With that said, I'm not here for customers. I'm just here to talk about a VPS starting price point. Nothing more, nothing less.

      @gsrdgrdghd said: Can you justify why your 1GB VPS costs $19/month and why it's called a "cloud" VPS?

      Good question, I came to the $16.99 price because a professional dedicated servers run around $130 normally for an 8 gig Xeon with 30MBPS

      So I was thinking 10MBPS with 1gig of ram and 10gigs of space on a virtual system is about equal to the difference in price. This is also about the price for most quality VPS services I could find.

      The cloud term is because we are clustering the VPS between our DC in LA and Vegas. Just the core and backups, not the VPS. In all honesty I don't like the term, it's gets throw around to much. Before cloud was a process it was thrown around a lot as a description for anything uploaded to. People do relate to it though but I might request to to get rid of it.

      Thanks, yeah I'm Just trying to find what a good starting price for selling VPS is for now. Nothing special about it. It's hosting, people choose you for who you are as a company, your product, and if the price fits. I'm sure VPS will be the same. To be honest I never liked it, we just get a lot of requests by people that need root but don't need the power of a full server.

      @dwhs, LET folks are a bit sceptical but it seems like you've an honest question.

      There's a nice market for people wanting to host websites but need just a small amount of resources, e.g. 128MB RAM / 5GB disk / 1 IPv4 and minimal bandwidth. $20/year. I like going after those small sized containers.

      Good luck in finding a sweet spot that's worthwhile.

    • vfusevfuse Member, Provider

      10mbps port is low, especially for almost $20 per month. Maybe you can look up on blue ocean strategy to open up new market.

      NIXStats monitoring Web, Server(Linux, Windows - $6.95/m), Logging (Free!) and Blacklists (start at 512 for $3.75/m) - Uptime Report - API Docs

    • All of us which are helping you to set your prices should get a VPS for free for lifetime. You can sell them somewhere else at the prices we told you. Deal? :p

    • This is the dumbest thing I've seen here in a long time. Who the fuck gets such a massive server with no business plan? Here is what I suggest:

      1) Horde IPs

      2) Sell to Quadranet

      3) Profit

      A 15 year old hosting company that you have admitted multiple times in this thread that has no experience in hosting VPS servers. DO does and does fairly well.

      I raise to you a question, why should I buy your $19/mth (1gb ram, 10gb SDD, 10MPS and 1 core) when for one dollar more, that's $20/mth by my count and I could have dual L5420's with 8gb's of ram and a 500gb disk?

      Very true. Where are you finding dual l5420 for $20 though?

    • Delimiter probably. I figured if he had a 15 y/o hosting company already then he would have the staff to manage them.

      130$ for 8Gb Xeon? That's so 2010
