Dear Lunar' Staff,

As I looking for the asp.net hosting, I want to do whether I can upgrade from "Windows Hosting" to "Windows Virtual Private Servers". If yes, is there any condition or additional fee?

For "Windows Hosting",
- Does the Storage size includes the database size?
- Does the FTP is included in the "Bandwidth per Month"?
- Can I get "Dedicated IP" for this Windows Hosting?
- When do I get "First 3 months FREE"?

For "Windows Virtual Private Servers",
- Do you have SSL?
- Does it support "Microsoft Silverlight Support" or AJAX?

Thank you in advance

Yes, either the Windows plan or the Windows VPS plan should fit your needs. 

For "Windows Hosting",
- Does the Storage size includes the database size?  - yes
- Does the FTP is included in the "Bandwidth per Month"? - yes
- Can I get "Dedicated IP" for this Windows Hosting? - yes, for an additional fee of $2.95 per month
- When do I get "First 3 months FREE"? - it is apart of the package when you sign up

For "Windows Virtual Private Servers",
- Do you have SSL? - yes
- Does it support "Microsoft Silverlight Support" or AJAX? - yes

Hope that helps!

Hi,

Thank you very much for your answer.

More questions,
- Can I use the same dedicated IP if I upgrade from "Windows Hosting" to "Windows VPS"?
- Can I set "A record" for sub domain? How? Is it free of charge?
- How long to setup the hosting after sign up the service?
- Can I use ASP.NET 3.5? If no, when will you upgrade?
- What is Coupon Code? Is it discount code?
- Do you have MySQL Database, PHP, SSI in "Windows VPS"?

Best Regards,

I'd be more than happy to help you out on these:

- Can I set "A record" for sub domain? How? Is it free of charge? - yes, for free!
- How long to setup the hosting after sign up the service? - most new accounts are setup within 24 hours
- Can I use ASP.NET 3.5? If no, when will you upgrade? - yes, just e-mail support@lunarpages.com if you need it enabled.
- What is Coupon Code? Is it discount code? - that is where you would put a coupon, if you have one.
- Do you have MySQL Database, PHP, SSI in "Windows VPS"?  MySQL, SSI* and PHP are supported.
- Can I use the same dedicated IP if I upgrade from "Windows Hosting" to "Windows VPS"? - no, sense dedicated IPs are assigned to the server you would probably need to get a new one.

* With SSI do you mean server side includes?  If so it should be supported for Windows VPS. 

Hope that helps!

Sorry for many questions because I will make a decision asap.

- How many dedicated IPs do I have for "Microsoft VPS"?
- Can I extend the Storage and Bandwidth per Month? If yes, how much does it cost?
- What is "1 GB of FTP Backup Space"?

Hope these are the last questions before making a decision.

Thank a lot

I'm back again, with a few more answers:

1 GB of FTP Backup Space means you will have 1 GB of FTP backup space on your account.  It is a seperate location for your backups.  Additional FTP backup space costs $25.00 for setup and $20.00/month for each 10 GB.   With dedicated IPs, you are given one by default but you should be able to add others later on.  I think the limit would be 7, with each being $2.50 per month.    If you are really interested in the Windows VPS option I would highly suggest dropping an e-mail over to sales@lunarpages.com and we could set you up to talk one on one with one of our VPS sales specialists. :)
