For those not aware, I am the owner of BTC Guild. My experiences handling the servers for BTC Guild all this time have led me into branching out into other avenues, including the hosting of VPS Servers. I have been working with the administration/billing software for the last few months, and had a few alpha testers along the way, and I'm now ready to offer servers publicly to another group of users. Since this is a new offering, I'm providing discounted prices for all current plans.
Servers are hosted in Chicago, IL at ServerCentral on a 1 gbps link. Virtual servers are restricted to 25-50 mbps depending on plan size, to avoid anybody overloading the network for anyone else. All servers are running on 2x Xeon E5345 (QC 2.33 ghz), with RAID 10 10k rpm hard drives for high drive throughput and data security.
The following UNMANAGED plans are currently available. BTC prices are 'locked' as long as the daily average exchange rate does not move more than 15% up or down. When you setup your server, I will email you the monthly BTC price, and the USD equivalent range that it applies to:256 MB Plan (1.4 BTC or 6 USD)

Operating systems include: CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, ArchLinux, Slackware, Fedora, Gentoo. Multiple versions are available for most operating systems, including the option of 32-bit or 64-bit distributions. You can reinstall the operating system at any time through the control panel provided with your server.
