I am looking for a cheap vps service, and i found some, but the most appellative i found for what i need ("fileMedia") has a really bad translation on its page and there is something which is leaving me some doubt.
This service, just like many others i found is for a kvm slot for free use (no hard restrictions on usage/OS/etc...) but when i try to order there are some fields for ntp and ftp storage for an additional cost, and i don't understand why since the plan itself has own storage, the user supposedly only needs to install a server like vsftpd or pureftp.
Since i had this question i asked my programming teacher for a reason for it, and he just told me that he doesn't has a vps of his own, but that there is a possibility that the firewall outside the server limits the ports, and those "additional features" are needed to unlock them.
How can i tell if its true, if i don't have time to wait for the technical support answer (probably tomorrow or even monday)? Do vps providers actually do these things?
