First2Host Upgrade VPS Servers


Claim a free VPS server upgrade

Over the next few weeks, we’re upgrading our OpenVZ VPS network to improve performance and provide an even better service to our customers. In May 2017 we will be retiring all of our Intel Xeon E3-1245v2 virtual server nodes and replacing them with Intel Xeon E5-2630V3 virtual nodes. These new servers are over four times as powerful as the current Intel Xeon E3-1245v2 servers. We’re going to be able to provide OpenVZ servers with a maximum of 32 cores and a 1 GBPS connection. We’re also introducing SSD servers at the same time.

New customers purchasing any OpenVZ server in any location will receive a free upgrade to an E5-2630v3 virtual server once the migration has started. Furthermore, any customer who has an OpenVZ VPS server will also have the opportunity to upgrade their server to an SSD VPS server for a flat fee of either £5 per month if your plan has less than 99.9GB of space or £10 per month if your VPS server has more than 100GB of space.

You can read the full press release to current customers here. Should you wish to take advantage of this offer all you need to do for now is to purchase any VPS server running OpenVZ. You will then receive an automatic upgrade to an E5-2630V3 VPS server in May 2017. Should you have any questions please contact us on live chat or by ticket.
