Dear Customer,

V2 Cloud will be changing prices for all our clients, for the first time in its 10-year history, starting on January 15th, 2023.

We created an option to keep your current price if you choose to switch to an annual subscription (commitment to 12 monthly payments)..

In the past, we offered monthly subscription plans to compensate for the risk we knew you were taking — investing in a new service. Nevertheless, the majority of our clients have been with us for years and, according to feedback, they plan on continuing to use V2 Cloud in the foreseeable future.

Your long-term trust in V2 Cloud gave us an idea of how we can continue providing you with the highest quality services without increasing its cost.

Starting on January 15th, you can opt for an annual commitment that will allow your monthly payments to stay the same, with the exception of customers who use V2 Cloud public IP addresses. Read more about how do I find out if I have a public IP address.

On March 1st, 2023, we will start charging $5/month for public IP addresses. Additionally, if you do not switch to an annual subscription (commitment to 12 monthly payments), your plan will
increase by 15% on the same date.

Please keep an eye on more information from us on annual plan options and how to switch from your current plan, whilst we’re implementing the changes. We hope that you will consider this opportunity to lock in the existing pricing, as we commit to further accelerating our innovation.

The History V2 Cloud & My how you’ve grown

V2 Cloud was created as a school project by Mathieu Ferland (aka Mat) while studying electrical engineering at Université Laval in 2012. The initial project, called Hazeware, was a simple virtual machine hosted in the Cloud with almost no end-user functionality. Hazeware iterated quickly and eventually found product-market fit with independent software vendors (ISVs). Given the interest from a growing number of clients and wanting to provide a more robust product that could sustain a growing number of users, Mat completely rebuilt the platform from the ground up in 2015 to give birth to V2 Cloud, which was still a one-man project until 2016.

From the beginning, V2 Cloud was – and still is, focused on our clients. As a bootstrapped company with no outside investment, we have always aimed for the highest customer satisfaction possible since referrals are our main customer acquisition channel.
