Bandwidth: Unltd @ 1Gbps IP: 1 HDD: 2x 1000GB HW RAID RAM: 4GB CPU: Intel Core i3-530 2.93 GHz + IPMI Country: Paris - FR

    Apparently they can request this:

    Your payment was made with a Credit Card.
    Take a picture of yourself holding a valid photo ID. (ex. Driving License, Passport)
    In addition to the photo ID, please also provide a picture of yourself holding the same Credit Card used to pay the invoice.

    Dunno if for all new users with a credit card, or from suspicious countries only.

    Better just pay your order with Paypal (which IIRC they also support) to avoid such hassle.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Indeed, with PayPal, they just ask you to click on a link sent to your verified PayPal address.

    This way used by OVH.. Even if purchase $1 domain.

    Oneprovider not asking for ID and other paperwork as well know.

    Confirmed. Paypal payment is faster. Not the delivery. But for the delivery its not a problem (im not in a hurry).

    Dear *****

    We would like to thank you for your recent collaboration in our fraud prevention program. We are happy to confirm that the process is successfully completed and that your payment method has now been verified.

    They just did, for a friend of mine ordering this special.

    @iamthepizza for your initial question, on this plan the "guaranteed bandwidth" is 250 Mbps https://documentation.online.net/en/dedicated-server/offers/old/server-dedibox-dc-dell
    In Online.net terms it means nobody will bother you if you average less than that.

    Cheers. Yeah, just had to confirm via email.

    $10.69 USD/mo. Will give it a shot for a month and see how it is, hopefully good replacement for my kidechires that were cancelled.

    @tridinebandim said: cpu can handle one plex stream? @nekki any idea?

    Based on Plex own recommendations, you should be good for a single 1080p transcoded stream with that CPU.

    Based on Plex own recommendations, you should be good for a single 1080p transcoded stream with that CPU.

    If you're not doing video transcodes, then I'd say 2-4 streams with direct stream/audio transcodes without too much of an issue (as long as they're staggered). Direct play would be more, basically just capped by ram + network at that point.

    I had a Kimsufi i3 for Plex way back and that worked great for 2+ years, would just choke when my less tech-savvy friends didn't tweak their settings to do direct play always and would inevitably do transcodes from 3Mbps 720p to 1Mbps 720p or 480p kind of thing.

    Wow that is quite a deal with two 1TB drives. Ordered one as well, I wonder why online doesn't sell this directly if it is from them.

    Edit: Strange, I got the fraud prevention thing too with paypal, even though I have an account that previously had servers with them. Must be a new blanket policy for everyone.

    Their verification policy seems simple enough:

    How does the verification system work? A: The verification system was implemented in order to avoid fraudulent actions or illegal transactions. New customers paying with a credit card or an unverified PayPal account will be required to provide identification. Verified PayPal account will not be required to do this verification. Please note that verification will be required again if you decide to change your payment method.

    Seemingly not. I've never been asked to take a picture while holding an ID/CC or whatever. If I ever was I'd just ask for my money back and tell them to fuck off. I don't think any service provider needs a picture of me with my ID/CC, that is just weird. I'm fine with scanning the CC/ID though for some places.

    Get a piece of paper and write "My Credit Card" on it and take pic, perfect!

    Just hit up their support and let them know the issue and I'm sure they'll have another way of verifying you (or pay with Paypal if possible).

    "3 days" doesn't count verification day, and they don't have a problem using their 4 business days.

  • AuroraZAuroraZ Member

    Ordered one as well. All they asked was I veryify my email. Might be because my paypal was verified though.

    Isn't that obvious for a $10 dedicated server that you can't really consume bandwidth for $400 ?

    Just how much i hate all this obscure "fair share" usage "policies"... The offer is so good that i actually considered buying one too, but... i just cannot make myself buy something with "if we consider your usage unfair we will simply terminate your service" written all over the place without even slightest hint on what they may consider unfair. That just feels wrong no matter how many bandwidth ( or anything else) i am actually planning to use...

  • HarambeHarambe Member

    @theyeti said: would you guys consider ~20TB per month fair usage?

    Yeah, shouldn't be an issue. The original Online.net product description someone linked showed 250Mbps guaranteed, so you should be fine. I've pushed over 20TB on the Kidechire and with a couple Kimsufi boxes.

    Since this is just a resold online.net dedibox DC DELL I would imagine that the fair usage policy is similar to that of online.net and OneProvider won't bother you unless they get bothered by online.net

    Just don't exceed that 250Mbps guaranteed bandwidth too often and you should be fine.

    Are you jealous of this offer? :) Anyway its obvious that for a $10 dedicated server you can't really consume bandwidth for $400. Even chickens knows that. But a projection of 15TB (or more) seems more than legitimate
