We've switched to having a separate Windows cost for dedicated servers now -- and lowered prices a bit for all dedicated machines and VDSes at the same time.
We're breaking out the Windows cost for two main reasons: because it simply costs us less to run Linux, at least after a machine is set up; and because we've been seeing a lot of confusion from Windows customers who have been comparing our base prices (which have always included the Windows license) to other companies' base prices (which almost never include the Windows license). We're actually quite competitive with our machine pricing versus other companies that use server-grade components and quality bandwidth, and we want to make sure that comes through!
In terms of the VDS price decrease, most packages have been reduced in price. The six-core option has come down from $47.99 to $39.99, for instance -- a savings of almost 17%.
If you already have dedicated machine with us, make sure to contact us so that we can adjust your month-to-month pricing going forward. If you have a VDS, make sure to refinance through our order page.
Encryption has been added to our hosted sites04/26/2017; Edge100x
We've added free, automatic support for Let's Encrypt to our hosted websites now. This means that domains added by customers now automatically work both through http:// and https:// URLs, by default.
Customers can still use our upgraded Pro plan and their own provided SSL certificate if they need a dedicated IP address (which expands compatibility with old browsers), wish to install an EV certificate, or can't use Let's Encrypt because the validation process isn't compatible with their website.
Our 20% off sale on new standalone game servers that are transferred to us from a competitor is back! When ordering, just use the coupon code EYSMGI and put the IP address and port of your old game server in the "Comments" field (that old server will need to go down within 30 days). For people who have been suffering at another host for games like Conan Exiles, this is a perfect time to come over to a highly reliable, reputable company with the guaranteed highest performance.
We are also running a sale on dedicated servers, bringing down their prices by $10. (If you have an existing server with us, just open up a support request and we can put you at the new sale price, too.)
Update on March 22: The 20% off sale has now ended, but the dedicated server sale continues.
VDSes get more bandwidth at lower prices07/22/2016; Edge100x
We've switched up our Virtual Dedicated Server / VDS prices in order to lower the per-core cost by about 20%, and we've included 50% more bandwidth in every package for free!
We have also switched to having a separate Windows cost. We've long resisted this change, but mounting Microsoft licensing costs have made it necessary to break that fee out separately and charge it to only those clients who need Windows. The good news for Windows clients is that the overall price of most packages is still lower than it was yesterday, even with the separate Windows fee -- because it is a flat amount that is the same regardless of how many cores are purchased.
Existing clients can update to the latest pricing through our order page, at their option. As always, old pricing and options are grandfathered in for as long as a customer doesn't submit a change, so customers have the option of sticking with their current package or updating to the new model.
20% off switched game server is back, and dedi discount05/09/2016; Edge100x
We've started back up our special 20% off deal for game server customers who are switching to us from a competitor. As before, just use the special discount code EYSMGI when ordering a standalone game server, and include the IP address and port of the server that you are switching over in the comments box (that server needs to be fully switched over within 30 days).
We've also lowered the price for most of our dedicated server packages by $10 today. New customers will automatically receive the discounted price, which is shown on the order page. If you already have a dedicated server with us, make sure to contact us through the "Help!" page in your control panel so that we can manually lower its price for you and make sure you continue getting the best deal!
E3-1270 v5 machines now available for purchase in Chicago02/17/2016; Edge100x
We have a limited number of E3-1270 v5 machines now available for purchase in Chicago! These are the latest and greatest from Intel and come with more RAM (64 GB) and a larger SSD (1 TB) than our other offerings here.
The hardware behind these is in pre-production, which means that it's been tested but isn't yet generally available. The next location that we will offer these is Frankfurt, which we hope to have ready by early the middle of next month.
20% off for switching a game server from another server host11/19/2015; Edge100x
Just use coupon code EYSMGI when you order and put the IP address and provider name that you are switching from in the "Comments" field of our order page to get the 20% off. That discount will be grandfathered in for as long as the same server is kept here in the same configuration.
This can be used to switch over regular shared-platform game servers from somewhere else, or to transfer over servers on dedicated machines or VPSes currently rented from other companies. Our standalone servers offer the highest performance, guaranteed, so this is a great time to step up the quality of your server!
We have added two more transit providers in Chicago. These bump up our total upstream connectivity in Chicago to 50 Gbps (with the effective DDoS mitigation capacity much higher because of filtering done by each upstream). The primary benefit of these extra providers is further resistance to large DDoS attacks, but the direct upstream links also increase performance by allowing us to bypass Internap for some inbound and outbound traffic and to better tweak routing paths. We will continue to use Internap as our primary bandwidth provider at this location.
To reflect these changes, we have renamed the location from "InterNAP Chicago" to "Premium Chicago". All current customers have been upgraded automatically.
