  • One thing i can say. Stay out of them. They have locked down contracts on all ranges. Meaning you need to pay 3 months atleast and to cancel services you need to request cancellation one month before.
    Plus there payment processor's charge is horrible.

    which goes upto 40% . LEL.

    There hardware and network is very good but support not that. Neither friendly nor pleasing.

    It's also no KVM so they are oversold as one can oversell these hostsystems. They only guarantee 99% uptime, while in reality it's even less.

    I don't want to bad mouth any other provider but since some of my clients were with webtropia before and've told me several horror stories I just want to warn anyone going with them.

    As for me I've heard bad things about their network but regarding the cancellation you can handle that by ticking automaticly renewing off right away at the checkout:

    That 40% fee is for a mobile payment provider and tbh Ive never seen any "cheap" mobile payment providers (zaypayp, daopay...)

    Yeah, I've hear baaad stories about them aswell which is why I always resist going with them.
    If I were to pick a deal I would go with a dedi. They have quite the good single core performance and no noisy neighbours when using a Dedi :P

  • Well try them you will get to know their real face.

    On side note : there ddos protection is literally a joke.

    Regarding the DDoS Protection I've heard similar things. As I said I am not keen to go with them just thought I'd share the deal^^

  • the prices in the offers are prices for the Federal Republic of Germany and include VAT). If your place of residence is not in Germany, the prices are net.

    yea i must pay VAT :D

    one time discount or recurring?

    Is the price include VAT?

  • Its shit, man get a Hetzner.

  • Their contract is tricky, and cancel the contract is pain in ass! you need to send them fax and wait wait wait and confirm long before the contract ends. I realize this since they send welcome postcard overseas to third world lol (thats my 4 years ago personal experience with them ;p)

    Recurring. And I think so. Did not acctually sign up with them :P

  • if servdiscount is anything like webtropia (same business), steer clear of them. I've had a dedi at servdiscount and the upload was almost non-existent (~3 Mbps). When I contacted support they showed me an internal speedtest :P These guys are a joke.

    Servdiscount belongs to MyLoc just as Webtropia does. And yea servdiscount network seems to always have issues when I check on them haha

    the one thing I do not like about the myloc.de brand is that they charges for the payment processors (FEES)

    This. 5% to pay by Visa, plus another 2.75% fee from my bank for GBP > EUR

    Yeah that sux xD
    But I also have my issues with online not accepting PayPal where almost everyone does and it is indeed a recent payment processor.

  • i had nightmare using them. frequent ddos

  • When I had server there the network kept going down, getting slow etc. And whenever I made a ticket they always said that it was due to a DDoS attack on the range my IP was in. Not sure if that's the truth, but I'm not getting any servers anymore with them.
