  • Invoice and VPS Account are created manually. IPv6 are free, and if we want to have IPv6, we have to ask it by sending email.

    Not that fancy hardware but still pretty nice deal considering the price.

  • LESLES Member

    The prices will remain the same for at least 12 months. There might be a increase in the second year, but we don't have concrete plans to raise prices.

    So they let a open door for price increases!

    How is IPv6 running with these servers? I've just ordered one but after IPv6 was set up my server went apeshit :(

    Update: Seems like this was an error with their Debian template. Their support has been amazing fast in fixing it :)

    More than enough bandwidth IMHO. I don't know why everybody want steady 100 mbps or even gbit connections when you don't need it.

  • SurgeSurge Member

    @yomero, some people do.

  • yomeroyomero Member
    edited July 2012

    Yes, SOME. Most people doesn't. And if you pull that insane amounts of traffic, surely you can afford in a better infraestructure.

  • gsrdgrdghdgsrdgrdghd Member without signature

    Well it's always nice to be able to burst to gigabit when doing an apt-get upgrade (or yum upgrade). Also i was planning on using this for VPNing but with 100mbit i can't max out my internet connection :( Anyway its still a great offer for the price. I just wonder if the 100mbit limitation is artificial or due to old switches/routers.

  • camargcamarg Member

    @yomero has a point remember people this is download speed you're seeing 1mbps dl should be enough for 99.99% of the people here

    @camarg said: 1mbps dl should be enough for 99.99% of the people here

    dl speed will be typically much more than up speed for servers due to symetric lines and the nature of server applications.

  • yomeroyomero Member

    @gsrdgrdghd said: i can't max out my internet connection

    In the meanwhile most countries have < 10mbps connections

  • gsrdgrdghdgsrdgrdghd Member without signature

    @yomero said: In the meanwhile most countries have < 10mbps connections

    Yeah i know that, less then a year ago i only had a 1mbps connection which i had so share with 4 people. I guess in this particular case it really depends on what you intend to do with the server. 100 mbit will be fine for running a website, but you'll need 1gbit e.g. for streaming

  • camargcamarg Member

    even if you're streaming, what you need is upload speed

    unless you're trying to create dropbox no2 most users will want to download from your server, not vice versa

    Thats what i've tried to point out:

    @gsrdgrdghd said: dl speed will be typically much less than up speed for servers due to symetric lines and the nature of server applications.

    Sorry i ment "much more", not "much less". Its corrected now.
