VPS Questions

I already have 2 VPS' and will be purchasing a 3rd, but have two main questions before I make the purchase.

1. I've seen the VIP program you have. Can you mix/match between the regular VPS and the SSD VPS, and get the 10% discount for having 3 or more?

2. Please explain the major differences between the regular VPS and SSD VPS, mainly dealing with site loading/speeds differences? Will websites on an SSD load faster? Will the difference be noticeable?

Thanks in advance for the response(s).

Hey Jeff.

Sure can!

Please explain the major differences between the regular VPS and SSD VPS, mainly dealing with site loading/speeds differences? Will websites on an SSD load faster? Will the difference be noticeable?
SSD is absolutely faster, and often times it's indeed noticeable! Here are a few articles about SSDs and hosting vs traditional disks:

I'm sure I know the answer, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. Can you stack the 10% discount on top of those limited time promotions? Like get an additional 10% off on the 20% off lifetime discount currently available on dedi's?

Now that would be cheating :rolleyes:

Ok, I'll stick to the 20% off then, however I do have my original dedi that's being charged full price, so I imagine I could at least get 10% off that one, right? :D

Well that stinks, I just read over it and seen you can't stack the discounts... :(

Well that changes my plans now.

The only discount that's stackable is the 2.5% off for quarterly payments, and 5% for yearly. Those will stack with a coupon code.

One more question and then I'm done.

How difficult would the process be to switch from a VPS to an SSD VPS as far as migrating sites?

Just open a billing ticket and we'll do it on the back-end, often times with no downtime for you :)
