Microsoft Software Licensing

Pipe Ten Hosting Ltd is approved to supply Microsoft licensing under SPLA (Service Providers Licensing Agreement) for its customers on a monthly recurring basis.

Microsoft Pricing Subject To Change

Pipe Ten adds a margin of approximately 15% to Microsoft provided GBP pricing for administrative overhead and small fluctuations.
Changes in Microsoft pricing may be made with no or little notice typically twice per year (January and June). When Microsoft changes its prices to Pipe Ten then Pipe Ten will reflect these prices in its costs.

Self Licensing

Customers may provide their own Microsoft licensing on self managed or bespoke servers. Pipe Ten reserves the right to verify the authenticity of any licenses provided. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that their usage of the software is in line with Microsoft’s terms of use at all times.*
