Community Feedback Request - VPS Plan
« on: May 18, 2019, 11:08:03 PM »
As some of you know, I plan to include vps service (Not free) for a nominal price point, where the revenue will be used to support this free project (Ad revenue has been crap).

I have been paying for everything out of pocket and while I do plan to continue this free project no matter what, some additional revenue sure wouldn't hurt.

With that said,  I am collecting community feedback on multiple items. Note 1 key point, I will not be overselling regardless of the technology, but I have always been a fan of OpenVZ technology simply because it is light weight. KVM is also a possibility.

Question 1 : What matters most to you?
A) High Storage (HDD) - Perfect for everyday website.

B) Fast Storage (SSD) - Mostly ideal for database heavy projects.

Question 2:  Price Point :
 A) For $5/month what spec would you expect?

B) What is the lowest you would pay and what kind of spec would you want? Please be mindful of cost and fees associated with hardware and payment processing system.

Any suggestion ?


Before anyone questions: I don't intend to offer paid shared hosting upgrade because I run this free one with the same care and feature of a typical paid hosting service that you would get for around $3/month from any reputable provider.

Ans1: Obviously SSD is better over HDD for any project. But SSD is costlier than HDD.

Ans2: In my point of view, $5/month VPS should have the following basic features:

▶768mb ram + 15gb SSD
▶Free snapshots/backups
▶Root level email admin
▶Ajenti
▶RAID Array

Raid 10 is a no brainers in my book.
The rest, it's your vps. You can do whatever you want to :)
Specs seems doable.

Thanks for the feedback bud.
