    Read date.

  • Ah yeah, my bad.

    I swear to drunk Im not god

  • So it is not recuring for renewals ?

    From what I understand, if you already have a server it won't work for its renewal. However new orders are getting 50% lifetime discount, incl renewals? Otherwise lifetime discount doesn't make sense.

    If it's really 50% lifetime discount, damn, those are really nice prices. Competing with Hetzner.

    Costly ipmi, retarded IPv6 and rescue system - I wouldn't trust them much. I pass :)

    Providing less than /64 means "we are clueless about IPv6". My geekbench results. I haz BuyVM, OneProv, Veesp.

  • atomiatomi Member

    I hope these will push OVH to upgrade their networks. Kimsufi with 100Mbps and SoYouStart with 250Mbps are so outdate today when so many are providing 1Gbps dedis

  • How is their network compared to online.net and hetzner?

  • NeoonNeoon Member

    Interesting.

    The RPi4 was 9.99 before, now its 4.99.
    Tomorrow it should be 2.49? dang.

    But the rest does not look like much.

    2.49 for an IPv6-only glorified toaster, meh.

    Well, Offline.net 1.99 Price hikes are near, be prepared.

    Hostloc is where the money is. (in case you ever wondered why scam operations all start from LA location)

    Edit 2: Oh, and huge credit to the guys at Hostloc who knew how RackNerd was connected to AlphaRacks years months ago. It only got confirmed in august this year. :)

  • Does anyone know if they accept personal hardware (GPU) for Dedi? Their GPU spec is unusable...
