    Nobody will be able to use these VPS for two reasons:
    1.) They cannot run SB, nuke etc.
    2.) The only way to utilize this for IM is if you have a high traffic site which cannot do with shared hosting. But if someone has that good site, they wouldn't risk it by changing their host.

    yeah. free for how long? 1 month or 2 at most is my guess. a new provider seems not feasible to transfer money sites too. maybe proof of concept only. have or are you using the service? any feedback? are you promoting it or an owner? the dodgy part of the contract states terms of use will change at anytime. of course this is why they want the CC. then at day 61..cha ching? and for how much then? sorry...smells like a teaser bait and switch. have them define a minimum term for beta and then i would willingly try. othrwise if it looks like a duck. walks like a duck, quacks and shits like a duck...it is a DUCK. nice to share but will pass long on this one. good luck to any who try it. review would be nice

    512 MB ram are honestly plenty to run a lot of my personal bots... ;-) Good hint, heading to sign up and try what's up with these guys right away.

    If they offered just a little more ram it would be more than feasible to install a headless X and install scrapebox (or whatever else...) in a sub-virtual environment, since they state you are on a xen partition with root access.

    How long will the beta be free?

    At least 5 weeks. Sometimes longer, depending on capacity.
    When your beta chunk's time is up, we email you asking you to take a survey about the experience. At the end of the survey, you can choose to keep your chunk and begin paying for it or let it be shut down.
