ByteSized VPS Frequently Asked Questions

Is the rTorrent/ruTorrent, µTorrent, VNC, Deluge & Transmission only available for the Debian release, or is it possible to get this with let's say Ubuntu?
They all come pre-installed/pre-configured with our template. You can do it yourself on Ubuntu but we won't support it.
How much control will I have over the VPS? I can apt-get install software and the like?
Yes, you have full root access.
Do I get my own IP adress, or is it shared/static?
You get your own dedicated IP.
How will the speeds perform compared to the old plans? Is there an average or any indication on the VPS average speeds?
Since it's shared with at least 50% less people performance should be better but can't be guaranteed.
How much Support does the VPS come with, is it more, less or the same as the Bytesized-Hosting plans?
You got support for all things pre-configured with our template. If something doesn't work in that, we should fix it. Of course we are willing to help you with anything else you might require but we don't *have* to.
Can I reboot the VPS? Install another OS? What 'power' will I have over it?
You can reboot,shutdown,reinstall and more
Will there be any place to check total bandwith usage, space used, etc? 'Dashboard' or so?
Yes you will have stats about your current ram / bandwidth / space usage.
How will the plans look when the BETA is done? Will there be let's say a lunch box (cheaper) and a Binge box (more expensive)?
Most likely, you will also be able to select different providers
As it is beta, what do you expect me to do? What can I expect from you? Are there any known issues at the moment?
We expect you to report anything wrong with the VPS itself or with our made template. The new website also might have bugs we would like to know about
Will I be able to use the BySH for an overview of the VPS or they'll be completely seperate?
Bytesized VPS is completely seperate
Why does the ByVPS site look so much seksier than BySH?
Because I didn't design ByshVPS ;)
Are there any trackers I am [not] allowed to use, and if so - which ones?
Same rules apply as on BySH in theory, but we are not final on this yet.
Can I setup an FTP on the box for a friend if he wants a file from me? This would [not] be used as an FTP server, but occasionally when a friend would really need it.
