      This host deserve more attention than they get. Very stable non overloaded nodes + fast, user friendly support. Highly recommended. (customer since 2011)

      btw. Deniss isn't about time to do something about this: :P

      IPv6 is being tested by us at the moment and it will become publicly available in the next 2-3 months. - 7.9. 2011

    • @Spirit Thank you for the recommendation.

      I agree that the IPv6 roll-out delays are disappointing. Unfortunately we are dependent on our ISP in this case since their IP space is being used and they are not in a hurry to implement it, as they secured some IPv4 stock that will last some time. The availability is being pushed back all the time because of this. At this time, the estimate received from them is June-July time frame. Hopefully this time, the delivery date will be accurate. Sorry about this.

    • rm_rm_ Member

      Using for 3 months, great performance and stable as rock. Eagerly waiting for IPv6 too, however.

      Hi. Why the order link forces a @20 per cent VAT on me. I am outside of EU and should not be paying this.

    • @torqhost - can u do something for the non EU people regarding VAT and

    • @usmaan We are manually verifying each order for VAT removal eligibility. You could simply write in order comments or open a sales ticket to remove the VAT before paying the invoice.

    • @usmaan - @torqhost probably do not pass the vat on to the government (maybe tax exempt/or dodging tax which is common in the EU (google/amazon etc) which it probably why they are going through all orders manually

    • snelwegsnelweg Member

      @torqhost Can I pick a monthly kvm one up and change it later to 24 months payment?

      http://cheapestvps.at (working on it)
    • @asterisk14 You have been reading the news wrong. US companies like Apple, Google, etc are using Europe (Ireland more specifically) to dodge local taxes. We are not operating on a scale of billions for this to make sense. You can also validate our VAT number which is open information and it will confirm that the company is registered and has an actual VAT. Going through orders manually has more to do with abuse prevention. Please do not make assumptions based on no facts.

      @vpnarea Yes, you could order a new server with the coupon, or apply it to your existing service if it is within 1 month of renewal.

      @snelweg Sure, changing the term is possible. The maximum we have is 12 month, but the discount is recurring, so it will be the same.

      Torqhost are the winsauce. Really good network uptime and speeds, solid performance.

    • cynixcynix Member

      Is AES-NI available on KVM instances?

    • @Nekki Thank you.

      @cynix The chips used on the host are E5645, so yes, AES instructions should be available.

    • upfreakupfreak Member

      Been using them since their Feb promo, and am a very satisfied customer. They deserve more limelight as others have opined here.

    • blackblack Member

      What are the specs of your KVM nodes?

    • @peppr Thank you.

      @black The node where current orders go is a HP DL180G6 2xE5645, 192GB RAM, 8xSATA in RAID10 (P410i controller).

      @torqhost, notify your accountant, cause you are in debt. Not significantly, but this usually affects credibility.
      Also using your home address for your office is kind of shady, but so many businesses do it, who dont really need it.

      @jaakka thanks, the issue dept issue was already solved, just takes a few days to update.

      Why do you think this is a home address? This is in fact an office building. A simple google search for "kotka 26, tallinn" list a bunch of companies that are located there as well as office space rental offers.

      edited May 2013

      @jaakka go check it out http://goo.gl/maps/kFUCs :)

      (About the first thing I do after buying a new VPS or a dedi, is look up the DC's street address, pin it down on Google Map and then go "visit" there in Street View, to check out what's the building is like and how the general area around looks like. Not to look for any problem, but just for fun, it's a bit like travelling around the world :) )

    • torqhosttorqhost Member
      edited May 2013

      @rm_ Well, its unfortunately not the prettiest place to look at, but almost all DCs here are retrofitted office buildings (even the major exchange hubs). The only one I know which is purpose built is a linx telecom premium DC building here: http://goo.gl/kW1Ez .
      Inside though, the kotka one is on par if not better then the linx telecom one.

    • jaakkajaakka Member

      You forget the one that inside TV-tower and belongs to Levira. Thats the most modern one yet.

      torqhost, that home address was meant as a joke. I reside in Tallinn and i know where Kotka 26 is :=)

    • rds100rds100 Member

      Kotka str. doesn't sound bad at all. If it was on Lubyanka square - i would be worried ;-)

      nope, there are more modern ones, not for public use though

      edited May 2013

      @jaakka the tv tower one was not purpose built. The linx one was designed as a DC and built from the ground up (the entire building), thats what I meant. The TV tower is still a conversion to a DC. But you are right, it is newer then the ones I mentioned.

    • @torqhost when you're successful, people here, try to knock you down with accusations, dirty building, whatever, ignore those, just pitiful people.
      Keep up your good work, have been enjoying your uptime and sincere approach to clients. I want to thank you.

    • skizoidskizoid Member

      i think the price is not: 10.5 EUR = 11.75 USD but 10.5 EUR = 14.17 USD (paypal conversion 1 USD = 0,74120 EUR)

    • blackblack Member

      Paypal likes to charge extra to convert currency x to currency y.

      @skizoid, @black Paypal does charge significant amounts, but I have also made a mistake in the conversion for kvm level 0. The price in USD is around $13.60.

      I am pretty new to KVM, is there something missing in my network settings? I tried all the options under "Network Card" in solusVM, it seems no help after reboot.

      What's the difference between these network card options and which one I should choose? I have "Realtek 8139", "Intel PRO/1000" and "Virtio"

      In fact that USD amount is correct for people who order from outside EU without the 20%VAT. If you are outside EU, make a note in the order and wait for VAT to be removed before you pay the invoice. So you will pay around 11.75USD.

    • @Makkesk8 The network speed issue for @CoolMoon is guest OS related. The IO will settle and improve once everyone who ordered recently have completed setting up their servers.

    • SpiritSpirit Disabled

      @torqhost to me that's decent I/O throughput speed. I mean, yes I am getting usually with your machines (all of them I use) around 180MB/s but even 1/3 of this would be completely acceptable.

    • torqhosttorqhost Member
      edited May 2013

      @Spirit Sure, the dd speed is also quite subjective and not the reason why slowdowns are perceived. ISCSI SANs will have few dozen MB/s speeds, but because they keep IO latency consistently low the performance is still good. We are also monitoring the IO latency aspects of the system. Some blips though are to be expected on a shared system. It is impractical in our case (if at all possible) to build a system that is impervious to overloads no matter what users do. The key would be to simply have monitoring and resolve the issue as soon as possible.

      There are many other ways of doing things and everyone chooses based on what is important to them. The choice on LET is great and there are many great providers here for everyone.

    • earlearl Member

      I see CacheFly: 21.1MB/s does this mean it on a 1Gbit port?
