New – virtual servers

Those interested in VPS have finally arrived – from 1.11. we set up ordered virtual servers. Virtual servers are sold in modules. 1 module = 15 GB HDD + 512 MB RAM. The price of one module is 100 CZK per month (without VAT). You can choose monthly billing (10% surcharge) and annual billing (no surcharge).

When ordering, you can choose the following pre-installed operating systems (no price increase):

  • CentOS 5.5
  • Fedora Core 13
  • Debian 5.0.6
  • openSUSE 11.3
  • Ubuntu 10.10

Another option is Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter in the Czech or English version, the price for the license is 50 CZK / 1 module / month. Due to system requirements, at least 2 modules must be ordered with Windows.

All of these operating systems are only a basic installation and do not include any additional software. Their further installation and configuration is fully in the customer’s control.
