cwebmecwebme Member

Comments

  • I would advise to pick providers that are active here if you want to search for a vps here.

    But server4you idk I don't know them

    |post4vps| for a free vps for your developement|

    had a VPS there a couple years ago. It was horrible. They are now a part of HostEurope and that could have improved their service

    Berlin, Germany

    I once had same doubt as you do, and I did some searching, also post here asking around. But thing is they have bad reputation here, and presume extremely oversold to have that specs and price.

    If you looking for DE provider for VPS, I suggest netcup

  • I used them for many years and their support was vary varied. I had servers in both locations they had at the time and would certainly not recommend their US location, unless that's changed.

    In most cases they were very forthcoming and helpful, ranging from things like free months for a four hour interruption to free setup for late server delivery (four days instead of 24h). However, the best experience I ever had with them was a hardware failure on Christmas eve. Drive died, was replaced, restored from backup. 3 hours. Was impressed.

    Be sure to scrunitize their site for fineprint. I have not looked at them in ages but i still remember the bad taste their trap like offers left me with. Maybe they changed but i'd still rather avoid them.

    Use them, I'm a fan. Have two dedis and two VPS. Great performance and uptime. Haven't needed their support so clueless on that.

    Thanks for sharing. If I buy a server or vps from them I will not need support. And the nice thing about them is that Plesk/Onyx control panel is included for free!

    So for me the important thing is performance and uptime. Can anyone share any benchmarks?

    Keep in mind that they have no IPv6

    Interesting! You are a client since... when? It's well possible that they have improved after the HostEurope takeover, but they were absolutely horrible around 3 years ago.

    On Aug 20 it'll be exactly 4 months. Not so long that I can say they're hands down the best, but long enough that they can't be anything close to the most incompetent I've come across ;)

    So they obviously improved. Good to know - they would have been my very last choice, based on my past experience.

  • southysouthy Member

    Be very careful about whats included and what not, e.g. What size the Plesk license is as this seems relevant to you. I haven't been paying attention to them for years but in earlier times they always had stuff cost extra unexpectedly. Which is why I never went there.

    @jarland, are their VPS based on KVM or OVZ?

    OpenVZ. I have a few with them too.

  • Can anyone with a VPS there, share a speed bench? Want to see how their network performs before buy. Thanks!

  • fLoofLoo Member

    I'm from germany, home country of s4u. Noone likes them over here. Absolutely ridiculous bad customer service, only 1 IP per server, no extra ips, VPS has super bad IOPs and are highly limited in every aspect.

    I highly suggest you to NOT go with s4u and choose netcup instead!

    you might want to consider that after a change in ownership (it's hosteurope now) things hopefully have changed. I know they have a long history of being called out for bad service and such and it most likely is very hard to get over that odd reputation anyways.

    yet one should be fair to give the new owners a chance to make things better by not only relying on the same old news over and over ;-)

    that said, I'd be interested in fresh reviews/benchmarks too.

    Doesn't look bad anyway, IO and network seem very good.

    It is OpenVZ because I see /proc/vz and venet.

  • bsdguybsdguy Member

    I had multiple dedis with s4y but years ago (10 years or so) and my experiences were quite positive.

    Explanation: a) I don't need much support b) s4y was (at least then) the place to get cheap dedis with reasonable resources. I remember them being usually about 1/3 cheaper than competitors (at roughly the same quality/service).

    From what I read here I guess that there was a bad phase of some years between then and now.

    My favourite prime number is 42. - WSS has kidnapped a digit from Pi!

    On their website says that all VPSs are limited to a 100Mbps network. So how can you get that kind of numbers? It seems a 1Gbps connection.

    Must be OpenVZ 7 then because it's running on kernel 3.10

    thank you all for your review...but there is someone now is client? Not only review years, and years ago.

    @jarland is (see above) and he seems happy.

  • jarlandjarland Administrator

    Just had to use their support for the first time so thought I'd share. Dedicated server was down, not sure why. I don't really care why, it's not an important server right now and I told them as much.
