就在两天前,一直以1.05刀卖低端VPS的Hostrail突然来了一封信,原文如下:

On Friday 24th June 2011 our Providers have informed us of a 60% upcoming price increase that is taking effect from the 28th June 2011, this was an extremely short notice for us and completely unexpected – as small of a short notice as it was we had to take action immediately in order to be able to continue providing service to our clients, i have had meetings with every single HostRail Staff Member as we needed to take a decision and we have taken our decision which is provided below.

Due to the current economic crisis that is affecting all companies in the planet we are unable to deal with this 60% price increase using our currently approved budget for 2011 and we are unable to approve a further budget for 2011 at the current stage, this means that we will be forced to pass on this 60% price increase to all clients as of tomorrow evening. Tomorrow evening we will be sending Invoices to every single customer with the 60% price increase, unfortunately this price increase will have to be paid by Tuesday morning so we can cover the 60% price increase our providers are asking.

We have tried all possible alternatives and solutions however the only solution is to pass this price increase in full to our customers, this is not something i want to do, this is not something i like to do, this is something that i have fought for 2 days now to try to avoid at all costs however its not on my hands anymore so i am unable to do something more.

大意是说:    6月24号我们收到服务器提供商的消息,说从28号开始价格上涨60%。这个消息非常突然,我们对此也毫不知情。为了继续为客户提供服务,我们必须尽快拟定对策。我与所有hosttrail的成员开了会。对策如下:
    经济危机影响了世界上所有的公司,我们没有能力在维持现有VPS价格的情况下应付这60%的涨价(以后也不会有之前的低价)。这意味着明天晚上我们必须把这60%的涨价分摊到我们的所有客户身上。明天晚上我们会把涨60%的账单发给所有的客户。因涨价需要多付的钱必须在周二早上前结算。因为我们在周二要付钱给服务器提供商。

    我们已经尽力了,尝试了各种可能的方法。但唯一可行的解决方式就是针对所有客户涨价,这非我所愿,但不得不如此。我为此事已挣扎了两天,想要免除涨价,但最终还是无能为力。

hostloc里面买HR的童鞋心里很不平衡。只有极少数世外高人看出苗头来。

果然在HostRail(简称HR)跑路的消息,在26日晚间就得到了基本确认。无数国人的数据丢失..无尽的伤啊!

以后选VPS切莫贪便宜啊!
