Micronode Instances - Launching Black Friday
What on earth is a Micronode Instance?
The Micronode instance range is a way for you to create virtual private servers in any of our locations at any specification you like.
What are the costs?
MicroNode instances work on a pre-paid credit based system. Credits are valid for 1 year regardless of the amount of resource used.
Credits cost £10 per year each however we will be offering 50% off on the Black Friday launch.
What does one credit give me?
Once credit = 512MB RAM and 20GB Disk
What happens when I've used all of my resources?
You can simply purchase more credits or delete some instances to free up resource.
What about CPU cores?
Instances can only ever be single core.
How many instances does 1 credit get me?
The Minimum requirements to provision an instance is 64MB RAM and 3GB disk. You can provision up to 6 instances with 3GB Disk and 85MB RAM or less higher spec'd instances.
But you only have 3 locations
As more locations are added to our NatVPS range they will also become available to Micronode instances. We aim to add a minimum of 4 locations per year.
What happens if a location is out of stock?
We will aim to add more stock as soon as possible. We will ensure that at least 1 location has available resources to create instances. You will not be entitled to a refund unless no locations are available.
Is this fully supported?
No. Instances come with no support unless a location is down. If your instance is down the recommendation is to delete it and create a new one.
Can I re-install the OS on an instance?
No. Instances cannot be re-provisioned, they must be deleted and re-created.
If I delete an instance can I get the IP address(es) back?
Can I migrate an instance to another location?
No. You can however delete your instance and re-create it in another location.
Can I change the specifications of an instance?
No. You can however delete your instance and re-create it with your required specifications.
TLDR: Micronode instances are a way for you to create virtual private servers in any of our locations at any specification you like. The price is £10 per year for 512MB RAM and 20GB Disk.
These will launch on Black Friday along with a brand new location, these will be reduced to 50% off for Black Friday only!
These are NAT only and IPv6 may be tunneled in some locations. Don't like tunneled IPv6? Pretend there is no IPv6 connectivity and use IPv4!
Please let us know if anyone has any questions or feedback, this is a new market for us and we're trying to answer everyone's questions before launch.
