    Sorry, @CVPS_Chris, my original comment of "I'm afraid they do" wasn't really a great reply :) Our node specs are 100% accurate -- you don't stay in business for 10+ years by lying about specifications that can be easily vetted by anyone who signs up for a VPS.

    What's the problem with that? Providers usually work for profit, not as charities. The specs are good, the prices are not bad.

    I was not talking about the specs of the machines. The prices your charging do not make any sense and over a one year period would barley pay for the machine. Then we have to throw in colo/bw pricing etc.

    I heard this hundreds times before. Your prices/offers wasn't exception here. It's so futile to go to the same accusation route as you experienced from others when you came out with your unrealistic offers ;-)

  • @CVPS_Chris, that's what I'm charging. I'm confused why you posted at all?

    lol @jeff_lfcvps,

    Just pointing out facts that your putting these plans on a machine that costs $6k+.

    Unless the equipment is stolen, the pricing does not fit what your trying to do and is not a sustainable offer.

    Not to mention the free backups that also cost money.

    @CVPS_Chris why? It's just marketing. You sell some at a loss, have some happy customers, they post good things about you, then you get higher paying customers. What's the problem here?

  • @rds100 said: @CVPS_Chris why? It's just marketing. You sell some at a loss, have some happy customers, they post good things about you, then you get higher paying customers. What's the problem here?

    I'm not going to chime in on if their plans are legit or not, but I can assure you that your quoted plan is rarely how it goes. You should expect at least a year where people aren't willing to put anything production ready on you as they simply test you out.

    Granted, if you're very open about your business plan/margins and any large people that back you it can help shorten that window, but there's been many hosts that have jumped on the super LEB market and sank because they sold it at a loss

    Not all offers need to be sustinable, some are just a way to attract clients. 5 months ago we were asked for $5K for a quarterly banner campaign, instead we decided we should use the same money giving near free service. Some space in each node is still used for marketing purpose.

    Well, i know of one provider who is very active here at LET and their boxes cost 5-6k EUR or more each and yet they keep adding more boxes at new locations every month. Why do they do it? :)

    My rough guess would be that unlike many companies here this host don't concentrate whole business around lowendbox/lowendtalk community (which is ok). And I doubt that they will sell hundreds and hundreds little boxes from this offer as they don't circle jerk 24/7 here.

    Which makes sense, they only have 2 plans that are LEB priced.

    marketing is required to sell everything. The time you pass here isn't accounted in your marketing budget? The banners you have here and there aren't marketing? Why your price was settled at $7?

    Actually they have none (except 42$/y) LEB offer on their site. I see them post here and there (not often) some good special deal and this is it. The reason why I posted in this host defence is that partially knowing his past decade and half (open source) work I think that this veteran won't just dissapear.

    I gave an offer, and pay for a banner. Beyond that I dont do much for the LEB community advertising wise. We have a higher number of higher paying clients and dedicated/colocated server clients.

    We offer VPS because we can, and at a price better than anyone else.

    I know your old and everything, but no its not "dads money" its mine, and I made it for myself. Its sustainable for us because we can do things other hosts cannot, and without that ability it just does not work. Can you sell $7 2GB VPS's and make a 95% profit? I don't think so.

    I'm sure our monthly income is much higher than yours and your a dinosaur when it comes to how long you have been around. To me that just yells failed attempt to grow.
