    Hey Everyone,

    I just saw this offer and thought I should share -

    https://php-friends.de/vserver-ssd/vserver-schnupperspecial-2019-ssd-g2

    I've been with them for quite some time and everything is pretty solid for me so far. I would happily recommend over many other LET providers.

    Go grab it if you're in need of a solid VPS :)

    Minimum contract period: 6 months

    Thanks.

      i have legitimate files to serve that exceed it. but the problem is i see it advertised constantly "flat rate traffic" and "unmetered" in german hosts ALL the time and it's annoying.

      That's ~39Eur/yr (without VAT) for us yearly cost planners.
      The minimum period is 6 mos: So approx 19.5/6mo (pre-VAT)

      A worthy pre-BF offer indeed :sweat_smile:

      So the above price EUR4/month includes VAT?

      Think of it as a way of giving "peace of mind" to the average non-tech guy who also would only use 2GB on an unlimited disk space plan. Here in Germany, internet is "Neuland", meaning lots of ppl have yet to learn what it is all about. To take away that fear of being overcharged there are these flatrates.

      Yes. If you're not an EU resident, the price is below 4€/m, as @vimalware indicated

      Yeah, I think so because it says "4,00 € pro Monat (inkl. MwSt.)" and if you click on MwSt. it brings you to a page with the VAT of each country.

      I got a 24 Euro invoice for 6 months even though I have an India address. Did not see an option for 12 months payment. So that leaves options - raise a ticket, have them revise the invoice. Or ask them for a 12 month invoice :-) Sunday specials.


      I need to brush up on my German

      But why would you want to pay for 12 months if 6 is the minimum?

      I think that they'll reissue the invoice without VAT within a few hours if you're outside of the EU.

      Exchange rate, financial year, convenience, I can give any number of (lame) reasons. For me, it's personal preference though. If the provider is good, service is great, then I prefer year long.

      Good point about exchange rate

      Perhaps they can make the invoice for 12 months, but there won't be a further discount in this case. :smile: Anyway, worth a ticket

    • Can anyone make bench?
      I interested geekbench, bench.sh and ioping?

    • @vyas11 I don't think they'll remove the VAT on your first invoice as they haven't done that for any of my orders. But you can try asking them, maybe just call them for faster response.

      I used Google translate to send them an email. Considering it's a Sunday and Deepawali festival here :-)

      Update: I just got a mail from then (in English!) that echoed the link shared by @pike below:

      "....In general we remove the VAT from invoices a few hours after the order by ourselves ..... as 99% of our orders come from Europe. That's why we have to set your account to VAT-free and resend the invoice after the order is in our system..... "

      tl;dr: they remove VAT or apply VAT of your country if youre from the EU.

      Cannot really compare Hetzner Cloud to PHP Friends, both are great (if not the best) for certain use cases.

      so, my total was reduced from 24 to 20,17 € (3.36/m) or $23.31 USD (3.89/m)

      If you are not EU resident wait for a few hours or open a ticket.

      Exchange rate: $ 1 USD = € 0.8652 EUR
      Converted From:     $23.31 USD

      Ympker said: Think of it as a way of giving "peace of mind" to the average non-tech guy who also would only use 2GB on an unlimited disk space plan. Here in Germany, internet is "Neuland", meaning lots of ppl have yet to learn what it is all about. To take away that fear of being overcharged there are these flatrates.

      thanks for the explanation cultural. i've found germany fascinating because it kind of exists in this weird terminology like 'vserver' and 'rootserver', 'traffic flat' with limits, and none of them mean what they do elsewhere. though i guess there used to be a virt method called linux-vserver that i have never seen outside of german hosts.

      Don't forget about yearly contracts that still are paid monthly, with cancellation terms of up to three months. I even had one host (ispone) that asked you to send a written letter for cancellation.
      Also it's vServer, Rootserver and Traffic Flat because we start all nouns with a capital letter.
