i understand that but what i mean to ask is what are the charges, if any, levied to the upgrades after the support ticket is submitted.

kindly clarify, as i need to proceed to purchase a box with you, and want to get things clear before i proceed...

thanks

Upgrade pricing and availability changes with the hardware market.  We cannot guarantee upgrade pricing will be the same later.  When you are ready to upgrade, you can open a ticket for a quote on the current pricing.  Thanks.

To clarify even further @qps if he orders one of the deals above, but later would like to upgrade the hard drive, assuming same day or during the sale promotion, would he able to get the listed "sale" price of the hard drives vs the full price.

 That being said,@agentmishra, I don't think the addons or upgrades are being discounted, just the base cost of the server.

Each upgrade situation is evaluated depending on what are costs are for the additional hardware and labor involved.  There may be installation fees depending on the situation.

When you are ready to upgrade, please contact our sales department and they will discuss the fees with you at that point in time.

so @qps could you let me know what the labour costs for upgrades in the following would be, at any given point of time

1. hdd (upgrade from existing - say 2tb from 1tb)

2. ram (upgrade from existing)

3. extra hdd (say hdd2 and so on)

4. h/w raid card installation

thanks @mojeda

You're asking to pin us down for a vague hypothetical scenario on an unknown server configuration at some point in the future (could be 5 hours from now or 5 years from now).  There are a lot of variables that we can't predict.  Costs may vary depending on the specific hardware upgrade(s) ordered, server hardware configuration, data center location, and what other tasks you are bundling together at the same time, if any.  Remote hands fees also might change between now and whenever you might order this in the future.  Sometimes we'll have our own people on site for an upgrade and we might be able to do it cheaper than if we have to pay the data center to do it for us.

Please contact us when you are ready to order the upgrade and we will provide a current price quote for the upgrade and for the specific task.

@qps : you dodge away the question very nicely
Not trying to dodge the question.  Just trying to explain that each upgrade situation is unique and requires a custom quote, which is one of the reasons why we said from the beginning to contact sales for a quote.

I think what he's asking is that is there a setup fee for adding hardware later (Yes / No)

I'm assuming the answer is "Yes" and as for how much obviously depends on remote hands availability and what the task is (ex HDDs might be cheaper than say ram swapping).

I probably got that wrong but that's what I got out of it. Honestly if you think you're going to need it later, you should probably just get it now to save the hassle. Better to be safe than sorry later on. Probably not that much more anyways,

@qps : you dodge away the question very nicely
You're asking for a pricing quote on something hypothetical in the future. I totally understand you want to get a good idea on how much it'd cost to expand your operation in the future, however it's difficult for many actual providers to specifically give you a number because of many things involved.

Current upgrade/promotion pricing is designed with current stock and a one-time remote hand fee to get the base kit setup and customize it (this is why some people have "setup fees", however some providers eat this cost). Additional changes to the kit would mean potential purchasing of hardware out of stock and and cost of remote hand (which can vary depending on datacenters). Again, I don't know if you've read the Renting vs Colocating post, but remote hand can get fairly expensive (I pay 30 dollars for every 15-minutes increment (this is the cheap number), and the remote hand costs could be much more expensive for different upgrades).

This is a simple supply chain problem, therefore it's harder for some dedicated server providers to give you a figure. Also, I'd say it's not really common for someone to customize and update their kit once it's been deployed (remember, you're renting the server so in addition to the hardware you'll be using, you're gonna be expecting the server provider to also have spares available on-site which could potentially mean they'd have to purchase more than they really need...).

Also, sometimes honoring the old quote may mean no profit or even a loss in the future (since the market can be pretty dynamic). So if someone's hosting you at a loss, that completely defeats the entire purpose of a business. By not providing a quote, it's simply taking steps to avoid possible awkward encounters/scenarios like this and provide an opportunity to work with you down the line.

VPS is much easier with upgrades since there's no real physical part involved during upgrades.

Anyways that's my two cents. I'm not knocking you down or anything, but just giving some details on how the back-end works. This just really shows the convenience behind a VPS over a dedicated server.
