How about some new locations (Switzerland/Liechtenstein?)

CH and LI are bloody expensive, so it would be awesome if someone could bite the bullet and set up a LES POP there. smile

I've looked through the forum and as far as I can see, the last discussion about CH stalled in 2015: http://forum.lowendspirit.com/viewtopic.php?id=1827
There are also some really interesting location suggestions in another thread (dead since 2014): http://forum.lowendspirit.com/viewtopic.php?id=986

Has the situation changed at all? Any chance to get one/some of these locations?

Re: How about some new locations (Switzerland/Liechtenstein?)

neither are cheap, to give you some idea, it would require around 600 ish orders to even break even on best case scenario which makes it pretty much not viable, maybe if the price was doubled to €6.00 p/year and 200 pre orders triggered the location I would consider it.

If you are interested under those terms I will consider it.

If the 200 pre-orders are not reached in 3 months though that will be the end of it, I wont be spending a fortune in time and money doing a huge amount of refunds.

Re: How about some new locations (Switzerland/Liechtenstein?)

Thanks for the info, great to hear some concrete details.

6 EUR/year for an exotic/expensive location would be alright for me (I'm already paying the same amount for a LittleHappyCloud in AMS).

How about using a UserVoice clone (http://idea.informer.com/ is free) to gauge interest in various locations (have users vote which ones they'd like most)?
That way you could also comment on the viability of certain locations in a central place so you won't have to repeat yourself on the forum over and over. wink

If you can get 10 people on the forum to suggest its a good idea I will put out some pre marketing using something like you suggested.

Based on the lack of interest so far perhaps you understand my trepidation.

Japan is pretty much the same, but I have kept that one on at my personal expense because I love that little red dot.

Isn't it sold out? Maybe increase prices to cover costs? Not every location can be priced at the same price and having you cover the expenses isn't really fair when you are the one already dealing with all the hosting. Maybe have a kickstarter or something to cover new hardware for a definite period with everyone chipping in. Japan is definitely awesome though smile

Sort of sold out, I am tryin to keep a balance of numbers especially in locations I don't have full HW access as there are some features I am working on which new containers complicate.
