    Hi all,
    We are looking for valuable feedback. So we are looking into legitimate windows vps's with activation. Generally through the licensing agreement we would be looking at 15 per month per windows VPS but that only covers the licensing not for the VPS.

    I'd like to add, we would be looking at having to add the license cost to our vps.cost. What do you consider a fair price?

    Thanks for that but 6 dollars for a legit windows license is impossible. Microsoft charges that much just for their license. I guess if the license is stolen 6 dollars would be great.

    Probably around $15/month for a 2GB Win VPS would be sensible. Windows runs best with more than 1GB.

    Use Windows Server trial keys so customers can try it first... if you know what I mean ;). After the trial make optional if the user wants to buy the key.

    That makes complete sense. You can use Windows up to 180 days without any issue for a license. So essentially your saying to offer it without the activation, and if they want it they can pay for the license?

    buy license in bulk, this will lower cost for the license and of course first use trial keys, coz some clients buy vps for short duration for their projects.

    Only problem with what your doing isnt the legal way doing it. Windows licensing for vps is a solid 15 a month. I'm still trying to understand how a company offering windows 2012 for 8 dollars a month is even profitable considering the license offered by Windows is more than that.
