    Wondering the same. The $1.50 / month for

    • 1 Core KVM
    • 20GB SSD
    • Unmetered 100Mbps

    is a pretty good deal, although paid annually. I paid for that full, wish it was more than 100Mbps though. And it runs on pretty old hardware, 12xxv2.

    If 1.5 * 12 is the recurring price , that's really good , but i don't know if it is :<

  • stevevps said: So is it recurring price?

    Usually OVH's deals like this are not recurring, but this time it doesn't say that anywhere.

    ...and DDoS protection, with the "always on" mode available, and configurable firewall (i.e. better grade than on Kimsufi).

    The information on whether it's recurring or not is nowhere to be seen. I guess it means that it's not recurring. Their US location is interesting even though their CA location was already quite good for both american & eu traffic.

    don't buy what you don't need: you'll save money and will end up able to grab a quality VPS when really needed.

  • Sad about it . Just let it go :smile:

    Even for the monthly ones? I can understand annual billing not being recurring, but not the monthly/dedi.

  • Speaking of OVH, I raised a ticket on 13/11/2019 with regards to VAT exemption, and sent them the necessary documents the following day, and have not heard from them ever since :joy:

    Has anyone gone through this and know how long it takes? I keep updating the case asking for updates but no one ever replies.

    I checked the yearly VPS. No idea about their dedi, but given how it shows up in the cart, it seems like it's recurring. And they did recurring promotions in the past for dedis.

    Long live LowEndInfo.com

  • Useless offer. $17.88 for first year only. After that $35.88 per year.

  • Your subscription will be renewed automatically next month on your service's expiry date, and you will be charged a portion of the $17.88 USD (plus applicable tax) subscription price, pro rata for the remainder of next month. Your subscription will then automatically renew on the first day of every subsequent month, and you will be charged $17.88 USD (plus applicable tax) for the number of billing periods remaining in the promotion period. After the promotion period ends, you will be charged the regular price of $35.88 USD. You may cancel your subscription at any time from the OVH Control Panel, by submitting a support request. If you cancel your subscription, previous payments will not be refunded, but you may continue to use the service until the end of the currently paid subscription term.

    Based on this, on the summary page, only a 1 yr promo

    $2-3 for a 2gb ram vps is already good enough, much less half price...

    To be fair this doesn't say anything about the price for the 2nd year. That's just their standard fine print to explain what exactly are you paying for right now. Try making an order without applying any coupon, and you will see the same wording.

    is the promotion get 6 months for the price of 3 years? i don't dislike cc, i just hate their lowest crap resellers. would like it if LEB listed a few good cc hosts once in a while that are at least slightly reputable.

    Agreed, that's why I paid full price a few weeks back. East Coast USA, and you can be confident they'll still be here the coming years.

    I was joking OVH just gave everyone in Discord a free year of VPS.

  • Doesn't say for first year only on the dedicated servers, but I can't tell if it's recurring or not. would be good to know for sure

  • MikeA said: everyone in Discord a free year of VPS.

    That's nothing. I heard they gave the early users in Discord a free year of a Dedi.

    Can confirm I got 6 months of free dedi (this is not a joke post)

    That's the issue with CC hosts. People love Virmach because they give out cheap deals, that makes sense, but it's just another arm of CC. Cheap deals, working well appear interesting. But will these "recurring" deals be here in a few months/years? CC stuff might be worth it to idle, or to experiment a bit. For anything serious, seems like it's worth every penny to use a better provider, even if it's going to be slightly more expensive.

    It seems to me that their quick-cash approach is pretty stupid in the long run as it makes every CC powered host appear as a potential scammer / an host that could disappear anytime if/when CC decides do (VortexNode style), even though that's not necessarily the case.

    Can "a fex good cc hosts" really be any good? Technically, why not; but looking at the wider picture, well, one can have doubts.

  • Shot2 said: That's not what's stated on the site.

    Hmm. Reminds me about a similar promotion for their SG cloud VPS launch which also only for the 1st year (IIRC they had a later on offer that gave recurring pricing at the launch price).

    Confused here as well - because usually like the KS or SYS offers, the wording is as long as you hold the contract the price will be maintained.

    Thinking...

  • I asked their support about recurring
    He replied:
    Hello again,

    Hope you are well rested. Apologies for not adding a note earlier but I have confirmed thru https://us.ovhcloud.com/black-friday that VPS will be indeed billed at $18, or $17.88 to be exact.

    If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to reach out via chat or support ticket.

    Regards

    I think it's still not clear enouth...

  • Don't remember there was ever recurring BF deals at ovh.

    Pretty sure it's the same as the other locs for VPS, single IPv6 address. But I'm not 100% certain.

    On the contrary I believe this response clearly and explicitly tells an implicit truth which is, people don't like it though, this BF promo is one-shot, without expected recurring joy.
