productOrder = {
  'virtualGuests' => [{
     'hostname' => 'testRuby',
     'domain'   => 'example.com',
     'primaryBackendNetworkComponent' => { 'networkVlan' => { 'id' => 1286783 } }
  }],
  'location' => 1441195,
  'packageId' => 46,
  'operatingSystemReferenceCode' => 'CENTOS_6_64', 
  'useHourlyPricing' => false,
  'prices' => [
     {'id' => 1640 }, # 1 x 2.0 GHz Core
     {'id' => 1644 }, # 1 GB RAM
     {'id' => 13945 }, # CENTOS_6_64
     {'id' => 1639 }, # 100 GB (SAN) First Disk
