I am trying to find a VPS provider that allows me to pay one or even two years in advance and invoice me for that.
I know … I am personally not a friend of yearly plans, but if the project that is paying the bills ends at the end of the year and you want to keep the website running beyond that budgetary end of the project, I need to pay for the following year in advance.
It looks like most providers will allow you to deposit money into your account and then have your monthly bills paid out of that deposit, but their official bills will still be monthly bills. At least this is the case with DigitalOcean and Linode (who just recently scrapped their yearly billing).
Can anyone recommend a hoster that can provide me with a proper bill for my advance payment?
