    leaseweb..?

  • @LiteServer is who you're probably looking for although technically they're in Dronten. 'Nuff said.

    Yes, our main VPS platform is located in Dronten which is almost around the corner of Amsterdam ;-)

    There’s only one option: @LiteServer. Not really in Amsterdam, but Dronten is ~2-3 ms away from there. You’re not going to notice that.

    And if you really want Amsterdam, you could go for UltraVPS. Very good provider, but I’ve only got experience with their network in Düsseldorf and not in Amsterdam.

    1) Liteserver (Dronten/Serverius) and
    2) Ultravps.eu AMS (has DTAG direct peering )

    I've been a happy customer of both since November 2016. Production Certified.
    Buy with confidence.

    Ordering using my ultravps referral code gives new clients
    "a 15 % discount for the first order and the first 6 months."
    Works even on monthly orders.
    Tip: Their KVM-SAS series are about 95% as snappy as KVM-SSD (ZFS nvme cache magic )

    (alt) https://www.ultravps.eu/?pdid=OB585446575DO6331C64

    You can investigate routes with their AMS looking glass : http://lg.ams.nl.ultravps.eu/
    AS/Peering : https://bgp.he.net/AS29141

    Caveat Emptor: You do need to be competent with Linux. They provision a 10GB root(/) volume and the storage mentioned in your plan as a separate /mnt volume. It's up to you how you want to divvy up/join these volumes.

    What happened to LiteServer? Seems like their prices raised up. Reorientation? There were a lot of budget plans 6 monhs ago. Now their plans start from 5 euro/mo.

    The smaller KVM plans and OpenVZ plans have been dropped - they simply have no future.
    Low memory KVM VPSes won't work very will with modern OSes like Ubuntu 18+ / CentOS 8 which need at least 512MB to just boot.
    This is basically for us the reason that our smallest plans are starting at 1GB RAM.
    Grab a nice coupon (like the current 25% one), and you've catched a super deal! ;-)

    I have been using LiteServer for well over an year and have had very little issues with it. Stable and reliable, and the price is also very attractive. Overall a very good choice.

    Welcome to EU hosting!

    Really, its what most LET providers are.

    • They will tell you they have lives on weekends, but they cannot honestly tell you that its one man shop or two.
    • Many does not provide weekend/holiday support.
    • In many cases they will respond within 24-48 hours.

    You want fast support? Try intovps.com, very reasonable prices. Developed Fleio, and have a good reputation even with their Managed Hosting (Hosterion). Not a oneman shop.

    Does it specifically need to be in Amsterdam? If not, Ramnode has services in NL too, I’m not sure where but it’s at the Dataplace DC.

    Edit: Just to add, I‘ve been a LiteServer customer since 2017 and I don’t have any issues with them. Callum’s a nice guy.

    Callum is the friendliest provider I've had the pleasure to deal with. It's nice to know you'll get a human response to almost any reasonable concern.

    You should bump the ticket after 24hrs just in case a notification didn't get through to them.

    We're in a different timezone. Your ordered during midnight hours. Unfortunately your order has been picked out for manual review, causing some delay with the actual setup. Unfortunately opening a PayPal dispute shortly after doesn't speed the process up either.
    We're available 7 days a week, but during midnight hours (00:00 - 09:00) there may be a delay in response from us related to manual order review or non-critical issues/questions. We're humans and need sleep too ;-).

    Well, if it's 4AM in their timezone you might want to learn to be a bit more patient. Could be useful with other things in your life as well...

    Dataplace has six dc’s in The Netherlands, but I believe Ramnode is colocated in Rotterdam. I’m no too fond of the network they’re using in NL though.

    @LiteServer I have replied to you. Unfortunately a lot VPS providers have burnt me before and I prefer to go to providers that have round the clock support even if I have to pay more. Thanks for understanding. This is no reflection of your services I just did not know it was a one man band :)

    @LiteServer isn't a one man band. But being impatient isn't good either, you were marked for manual review which takes time. Heck Hetzner doesn't respond to manual reviews at midnight they have set daily hours and you would have to wait for them too.

    Also don't expect a good time with any provider if you start a PayPal dispute.

    We're not a one man band, LiteServer has a great team of techs. But we just don't offer 24/7 support on unmanaged VPSes. For managed VPSes (SLA) we do though, but those are in a different price range too.
    Everything non-critical like manual order reviews and/or regular questions are handled during the day, and we use night time to sleep and charge our own 'batteries' :-). We need to stay realistic with VPSes in this price range, and can't guarantee 5 minute response times during the night hours. But we do our best to handle all requests asap, so as most people know here on LET we often reply within an hour during the day :-).
    Our network and virtualization platform is of course being monitoring 24/7.

    You're always welcome in case you change your mind :-).

    1) Fastest response will be provided by KnownHost they have NL location, their price is to High.

    2) I started with Managed VPS at @LiteServer end up having all categories servers with them , including shared hosting.

    Callum provides realistic replies and solutions.

    Better to get smallest vps with any provider and test them.

    I've been a Ramnode customer for about 7 years now. Performance has always been great and we've never had any issues with the uptime whatsoever.

    Their support is extremely fast. Every time I've filed a ticket, I got a response within about an hour or so (and often within minutes). We've always had very good experiences with them.

    The Netherlands is part of mainland Europe.

    For something out at sea try Sealand. Their datacenter went on fire once and they've had a few military invasions.

    Sadly their NL location is second class compared to the US ones. They've partnered with a mediocre network and there are some restrictions like the prohibition of torrent traffic, which are a bit surprising given the country.

    With other excellent European providers like UltraVPS, Liteserver, iwStack or even LeaseWeb in their price range, I'd only choose them if already a customer in other locations and need to expand into Europe, which probably was their idea anyway.

    But don't misunderstand me, they are still more reliable than nearly every provider in this forum and pricing is good.
