netcup RS 1000 Plus (advent calendar)

anyone missed the netcup BF sale RS 1000 plus offer (the one 10a.m.)?

https://www.netcup.eu/bestellen/produkt.php?produkt=1967

6 dedicated cores, 8GB RAM, only 60GB SSD though...

they do have it today in their advent calendar again... can't tell if limited and if so, how many units will be available. it's said they are going to eventually release stock spread over the whole day.

PS: 3month term, price includes german VAT but they might not deduct it. also coupons might not work or risk the order being cancelled...

  • When they say 8 dedicated cores, you get 6 entire cores to yourself?

    I wish it didn't cost #25 to transfer NetCup, because my VPS500 is all but worthless to me now.

    Uhh... what? Pretty sure that means concurrent threads. Keep in mind that RS (RootServers) are completely different than their VPS line, which are superficially limited, and with a standard shithouse QEMU vCPU.

    I won't be back until @bsdguy is released.

    dude that doesn't make sense... afaik their 'cores' are more likely 'threads' yet you can use them 24/7 ...

    what are you talking about? of course that is recurring, as it has always been with those kind of offers.

    they sometimes have some kind of first three months free and pay after or alike but that's clearly stated. and of course that one is 8.99€ per month recurring.

    PS: just to clarify, I still have an RS from last years advent calendar at 3,49 recurring going strong ;-)

  • i had one last summer of a 2 dedicated core some 400GB or more SAS, i asked them to enable some cpu flag to allow nested virtualiztion but they asked for 20 or 25€ i was disappointed and let it go, otherwise no complaints.

    It is recurring. I have the RS1000 from last year's advent and the price is the same.

    haha, yeah probably their use of contract term lengths may be misunderstandable if not used to german habits ;-)

    nah - it's just 26.97 for the first three months. then forget to cancel early, and spend another 26.97 after for another 3 months... but after all worth it ;-)

    Maybe I should order a few of those things. Just in case

    Just want to clarify. This thing is better than KS3C right ? If that's the case I will replace my KS3C with this thing

  • Okay this is so fucked up. I decide to reorder. Now I got my server activated 2 of them.

    WARNING. If you want to order 1 server, DO NOT ORDER 2

    Now, I am confused. I didn't get any invoice. I didn't pay anything. My server got activated.

    @Falzo, is that how they works ?

  • Again, less leaded paint.

    EAT LESS PAINT. THAT'S WHY YOU'RE HERE.

    Also, you signed up for two. You'll be charged the minimum agreement even if you cancel now. Welcome to contracts!

    Yeah, I know the consequence. But the problem is, they haven't charged me. Yet. I have yet to see any invoice generated.

    They setup the server, send me the login details, but no invoice yet.

    If I cancel early, does my server get terminated instantly or get terminated at the end of the contract ?

  • You have the full term of whatever your contract stated.

  • you might enjoy benefit of German right-to-cancel policy (for consumers if not business). Could say that's what you're paying the VAT for ... (j/k)

  • @yokowasis said: They setup the server, send me the login details, but no invoice yet.

    Don't worry - they will soon send the invoice (and typically they give you like 2 weeks from the activation of the server to actually pay for it based on the invoice date and the pay by date on the invoice).

    @Falzo - is this typical "German" law type of stuff?

    Thanks, I clicked on buy buy buy and then clicked on pay pay pay and after several transactions, my bank called me to see if my card was hacked :-). Answered some confirmation questions and then continued ordering :-)

    This is a really sweet deal to be able to resist.

  • yokowasis said: They setup the server, send me the login details, but no invoice yet.

    they usually send the invoice a few hours or days later to be paid within 14 days.

    yokowasis said: If I cancel early, does my server get terminated instantly or get terminated at the end of the contract ?

    within their control panel it should display a date for when the cancellation is possible...

    for what it's worth you got into a contract with them, so it should terminate to the end of that contract term ;-)

    yet there is our german 14 day Widerrufsrecht, as already mentioned

    uptime said: you might enjoy benefit of German right-to-cancel policy (for consumers if not business).

    which might be valid here. you could just contact them about, admitting a mistake at order time and ask them to cancel one of the orders ;-)

    nullnothere said: @Falzo - is this typical "German" law type of stuff?

    not neccessarily, providers could also ask prepayment. but most of the bigger businesses don't do that because they give some kind trust upfront. german laws may have them covered in case of abuse (at least for national customers that is)

    maybe that changes at some point if they run into too much abuse from international customers which they cannot get ahold of.

    That's so sick, they should limit it to one per user.

    they stated before that they may release more stock during the day, because they were afraid before, that some offers run out quickly. 12:00 or 13:00 german time should be a good time to check again (or every full hour maybe?)
    I think they do change things manually, at midnight it took about 5 minutes before the calendar changed to 6th and the offer appeared...

    good luck everyone!

  • Does anybody know if it’s hard to migrate from one “root” VPS to another with them?

  • @BBTN said: Does anybody know if it’s hard to migrate from one “root” VPS to another with them?

    From what I understand, you have to honor the contract (unless of course the VPS is deficient in some way in which case maybe you can cancel though I suspect they will immediately fix it). So once you sign up for whatever (3 months or a year), you cannot "escape" and are bound to pay for whatever duration you've signed up for.

    I think you can upgrade but they'll charge something like a € 20 fee for the possible upgrades (and again I have no idea what kind of upgrades are possible).

    tl;dr - don't sign up expecting to change anything about what you signed up for.

    Thanks, but I was approaching the technical side. Migrating my system
    to a new one e.g. using their internal snapshots.

    Sorry - my misunderstanding.

    I think you need to pay to download the snapshot (or something like that)?

    Why not just use rsync from old to new? Just keep the interfaces and fstab files as is and then run grub-install/update-grub to make sure your new one is uptodate and you should be good to go.

    The offer doesn't say at most one per customer, but if you order two at once, it may not work, because of their attempt separate every order by a certain amount of time.

    Edit: So if you want to order two, it would be better to place two separate orders, waiting some minutes between the two.
