I'm considering moving to a VPS so if I've got my sums right, for the first year on the basic starter package with cPanel it would be: $90 + ($45 x 11) + ($15 x 12) = $765

Is that correct?

Where are your servers located?

Hi Brogan,

Here's a breakdown, I'd offer:

12-month period:
$450 for the basic package. (12-month discount).
$180 for cPanel
$630 total

Where's the $90 come from?

Our servers are colocated at Quonix in Pennsylvania.

Thanks.

The $90 was from the link in your post - it stated $90 due today and then $45 thereafter per month.

Ah yeah, the billing period is prorated. Anything longer than 4 months, we'll apply reductions :)

We provide the support and license for LiteSpeed Web Server.

With respect, sorry to throw this question into what is primarily a company ad but I keep looking back at this thread.
Depending on how quickly I want to build my project, which at the moment is some existing base members and a few friends...(waffle over)
In a few months or so, this is what I'm after.
The big Q is:
Our servers are colocated at Quonix in Pennsylvania.
Now, we're UK based, my market doesn't mind going global. Is this U.S. server good for me, or...?

Dumb question asked and fire away. :)

xe.com reliably informs me that $630 is, as near as makes no difference £386 (I work in pounds me).
So that's a tad over 3 times as much as a typical shared/virtual hosting plan. But way more than 3 times better IMHO.
At the mo. my contention : isn't that bad, but if/when more people are flocking, it'll quickly get sapped.

Many of you are asking why these servers are expensive. To answer that question, many providers don't offer 15K SAS disks in RAID-10 configuration on the hardware node. We have negotiated with the datacenter to provide us with bandwidth on better IP Carrier networks, such as Level 3, rather than the more budget based Cogent communications.

Additionally, these VPS come with a LiteSpeed License.

We only allow a certain number of VPS 'containers' on the hardware node. This ensures that performance is maintained.

We have at least 1 UK-orientated website as a XenForo client. A US server could prove beneficial for most clients, whereby the majority of global clients are from Europe and the USA.

See above :)

We'll have additional servers to fit the capacity.

I am guessing that's me
My previous host's servers are located in Manchester, England and I have to tell you that my users now get the impression that the new server is at the end of their street. I would say that at least 80% of my users are UK based.

To be fair tho, that will only be true for those users on a decent ISP with Tier 1 connectivity. I am lucky in that we purchase AboveNet transit (who peer with Quonix) and get good ping times to the US from the UK. You can see that hop 6 is the transit to the US hence the big spike in time.

My website is being hosted by RS and I have no complaints, even the price is much cheaper than my old host they wanted over $25 per month extra and RS as quoted me a VPS with better specs for a cheaper price.
