We're fully managed so a lot of the effort we put requires extensive expert manual labor to complete the provisioning, configuration, and adjustment of the services on the server. It's expert people that prepare your server in the best form possible for you. Besides the labor cost, there's equipment cost, fees, vendor charges, amortization costs, etc. It's for this reason that we do not offer test servers or server "trials" for testing.
What we do, however, is offer monthly based billing cycles including entry level VPS servers so you get a chance to experience the service. You can cancel these servers prior to your next billing cycles if you choose not to conitnue with the service. Please read our policy regarding refunds.
