Types and deploy time

Maxihost offers three different types of servers you can deploy depending on your needs.

Instant servers

Instant servers are pre-defined configurations that Maxihost built to support most workloads. Pre-defined specs enable Maxihost to deliver servers more quickly, decreasing the time between when you request the server and when you receive the server credentials.

Deploy time is 10 minutes or less.

Spot servers

Spot servers are also pre-defined. These are servers that we have in stock that have different specs from Instant servers. Servers go to the Spot market for different reasons but mostly when they are from a previous generation of Instant servers or for custom projects that ended.

Spot servers come in and out of stock every day and as they have different configurations (in terms of processor, memory, and disks), the units available change often.

Most Spot servers deploy in 10 minutes.

Custom servers

Custom servers can have their configurations fully customized by the customer.

They are available for Custom Deployments and require a contract. Please reach out to us to discuss your requirements.

Deploy time varies depending on the complexity of your project, but usually takes between 3 hours and 10 business days.
