Changes to Windows Products

Due to changes with our licensing agreements, Windows Server 2008 Web edition has been removed from the product line. Any existing leases will be grandfathered in.

Windows Server 2008 Standard is now $5 less, bringing the monthly cost down to $20. We have went through and adjusted all existing Server 2008 Standard accounts to reflect this price change.

We are also in the process of testing Windows Server 2012 and will make an announcement when it is available for use as a VPS.
