Today, we have two special offers to share with all of you.

Dedicated Server LEB-52400
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 4x 3.40 GHz
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 memory (16 GB +5.00€ monthly)
HDD: 500 GB HDD or 120 GB SSD (2x 500 GB +5.00€ monthly)
Network: 100 MBit/s connection (high quality: 20 GBit/s DTAG, 20 GBit/s Level 3, 10 GBit/s GTT, 20 GBit/s DE-CIX, 10 GBit/s AMS-IX)
IPv4: 1x IPv4 (up to three free, more on request)
IPv6: 1x /64 native
CPU Benchmark: 5897
29,00€ per month
Details and order

(1 EUR = 1,14 USD)

We offer a 20% recurring discount on the server and all upgrades if you pay yearly (23,20€ per month) and a 10% discount if you pay quarterly (26.10€ per month).

The server can be reinstalled via PXE using our control panel. You can either select fully-automated installation or VNC/SSH installation. Latter will boot the installer via network and spin up an SSH/VNC server to allow you to install the OS manually. See our wiki for a full list of available OS (including all major Linux distributions and Windows Server).

We allow customization to a very high degree. You can send in your own hardware or buy upgrades from us.

These Sandy Bridge machines are still very powerful. Perfect for a Plex box or even virtualization (we even offer a Proxmox image).

How to order:
Sign up on our website and either add a credit card or add enough credit to pay for the first billing period. Then click the order link and configure your server.

CloudServer LEB-SSD-SUMMER17
CPU: 2x vCPU
RAM: 2 GB DDR4
SSD: 20 GB SSD
Network: 1000 MBit/s port (Fair use)
IPv4: 1x IPv4 (more on request)
IPv6: 1x /64
5.00€ per month
Details and order

Our CloudServers are KVM-based virtual machines. We offer all major Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora) for automated installation. Custom ISOs will be available in the control panel soon and can currently be inserted via support.

Comments

  • Edited very, very slightly as yearly dedicated deals unfortunately aren't allowed.

    However! Rest assured viewers of this offer thread, I can reveal that it's cheaper to buy it yearly if you want to.

    So i5-2400/16GB RAM/1TB HDD costs 39€.

    I'm glad I pay 8.99€ to Kimsufi for this exact same spec ;)

    Some of the KS i5s come with i5-3570S/16 GB/2TB also.

  • Yura said: I'm glad I pay 8.99€ to Kimsufi for this exact same spec ;)

    I'm happy to pay more to @farnox and get personal support and decent network connectivity.

    Thanked by 2pike farnox

    Not comparable at all. This comes with way better network and real support in a top-quality location.

    Anyway, Kimsufi isn't a lot cheaper anyway (26.17€ for i5-2300) and they take a setup fee.

    No one can beat OVHs pricing and this shouldn't be top priority anyway. We focus on other things (support, network).

    @brueggus Thank you very much!

    So 500GB Traffic is just a placeholder or it is limited to 500GB?
    You advertise it as "Network: 1000 MBit/s port (Fair use)" which I understand as unmetered.

  • farnoxfarnox Member, Provider

    @pike It's a placeholder. Don't worry.

    Additionally I downloaded the 10GB test file from hetzner and got constant 112 MB/s.

    No need to mention the ping is superior. 19ms to my place instead of 25ms like other servers in central germany. But I expected that looking on your datacenter. Can't wait to get my OpenVPN setup done and start gaming :D

    My server got deployed today, I created a benchmark (including hardware information, ping, traceroute, network speed, I/O test, cpu benchmark) for LET crowd. Can do ping test to a given IP if someone needs this.

    I really like @farnox so far and I'm looking forward to keep using his services for my dedicated gameserver/VoIP server applications. Just have a look at the benchmark and you know why :)

    @pike Thank you very much for your kind words and feedback!

  • iceveiceve Member

    @pike have you test the upload speed? I'm using speedtest_cli.py script, but the upload speed is not good keep around 7M/s, not like the VPS one.
    @farnox thanks for your hard work, and good support, but i want find out the problem.Maybe we can check this together.

    I took the i5-2400 dedi offer with 1000 MBit/s Port upgrade. Benchmarks:

    @iceve I also had problems with the speedtest_cli.py script results and actually emailed support for it. I had fast and friendly replies and @farnox actually tested my server. They did not find any problems with it. With further investigation it seems that for some reason the speedtest_cli script gives wrong results, never ever had problems with it before. I get more accurate results with iperf3 and I can actually download faster from my server with my home connection than what speedtest_cli results shows for my server upload. Sadly I don't have other 1G server to give more tests.

    @kaski Thanks for your feedback, I have bad luck, my server died on my first day. @farnox going to replace a new one for me. And yep, not sure the real reason about the network speed. @farnox made a test under live CD mode, The result is pretty good. Hope i'm lucky on the new one.
    And thanks for @farnox 's hard work.

    Just ordered one. Didn't notice the 7 days it takes to activate the server. That part kinda sucks. Was going off the claim of "Ready to go in 60 seconds"

  • farnoxfarnox Member, Provider

    @luckyrepo That only applys to our CloudServer. We will make sure to get it online as soon as possible.

    Thank you. That would be appreciated.

  • Update. Server deployed in three days. Looks to be running fine but I'll do some tests when I get home.
