We offer virtual servers with different technical specifications in different data centers. To make it easy for you to choose the right one, we will describe the tariff plans we have and the difference between them.

What tariff plans are available
You can see the list of tariff plans on the shop window in your personal account or on the website in the Virtual Servers section.
On the shop window, choose the location of a data center and the system will display a list of available servers located there. The description contains the technical specifications of a server.
On our website, we have a complete list of tariff plans and a filter by technical specifications. You can specify the required data center, number of CPU cores, amount of RAM, amount of disk space, operating system, and price. The system will show the available tariff plans after you specify your requirements.
Currently, we have four tariff plan categories: KVM-SSD, KVM-SAS, KVM-HIGHCPU-SSD, and KVM-HIGHCPU-SAS. The category is indicated in the name of a tariff plan.
KVM-SSD and KVM-SAS tariffs are suitable for a wide range of tasks. On such servers, you can deploy VPN, Apache, NGINX, or a game server. The difference between them is in the type of disk: KVM-SSD has SSD disks, and KVM-SAS has HDD SAS disks along with SSD disks (SSD is used for caching) the size of the drive in this category is usually larger.
Please note: Windows Server OS is not available at tariff plans lower than KVM-SSD-4/KVM-SAS-4 (the ending of which has a number less than 4).
KVM-HIGHCPU-SSD and KVM-HIGHCPU-SAS tariffs are suitable for tasks that use CPU intensively. The KVM-HIGHCPU-SSD category uses SSD drives, and the KVM-HIGHCPU-SAS category uses a combined type of drive (HDD SAS disks and SSD disks).
Each purchased server, regardless of the tariff, will be provided with 1 IPv4 and 1 IPv6 address (included in the tariff). If you want more than 1 IP, you can additionally buy up to 9 IPv4 and 9 IPv6 addresses at any tariff, except for the KVM-SSD-0. You can buy only 1 additional IPv4 and IPv6 address on it. Also, you can replace OS on any server with one of our template OS or with OS from your ISO image by yourself.
How to choose a tariff plan for your needs
Choose category and tariff based on your tasks and the resources they consume.
If you want to deploy a VPN you can use servers from the KVM-SSD category — these tariff plans are suitable because the task does not require high CPU performance. If you need a lot of space on the server, then you can choose the KVM-SAS category.
If your task requires high processor performance it is better to choose servers from KVM-HIGHCPU-SSD or KVM-HIGHCPU-SAS category. Servers from the last category have more disk space.
If the performance of a virtual server is not enough for your tasks you can place an order for a dedicated server.
If you are not sure how many resources your tasks will consume and what tariff plan is needed, then you can order any appropriate tariff plan and check if the server is suitable for your tasks. We can upgrade the tariff if the server you have chosen doesn't have enough performance. If you want to order the upgrade write to technical support and specify the desired tariff.
How to rent a server
After you choose a tariff plan (on the website or the shop window), an order page will open.
The order window contains information about the price of additional IP addresses, OS, and total cost of the order with all options. Additional IP addresses can be purchased at this step by simply moving the slider to the right.
Select the OS you want to install on the server. Please note: all operating systems are free, except Windows — it is paid additionally and the cost will be included in the tariff. Also, you have to enter the domain name that will be linked to your server — you need to buy or register it from a third-party provider. The name must be at least the second level, contain no more than 63 characters in each of the levels, and have a total length of no more than 255 characters. If you leave this field blank, it will default to the domain example.com and can be changed later.
To place an order click the "Add to cart" button, and then click "Pay". The system will show you available payment methods. After payment, the server will be automatically activated within 3 hours.
How to renew your server rent
Server renewal is an automatic process. After the period you paid for has passed (you set its duration and pay for this period in a one-time payment when buying a server) the server will automatically switch to daily payment, but there is one exception — the KVM-SSD-0 tariff will be switched to a monthly payment. There will be everyday charges from your account balance in proportion to the cost of your server and the number of days in a month: for example, if there are 30 days in a month, 1/30 of the cost of the tariff will be charged every day.
