    Name your price. Most people wouldn't consider <$20 "decent amount of money" so don't waste peoples time if you're expecting something stupid.

    @jonathanspw

    Yes. Process is new owner creates an acct and if all invoices related to the services are paid the existing owner can open a ticket requesting the service be moved to someone else's account.

  • I tried their server for 3 months so I can write the below review.

    Pros
    1- Fast support, they replay so fast even if they don't fix the problem, but they have good keyboard writing skills.
    2- You have to open your email to use the link to login to the panel, that will remind you to open your email frequently and check it.
    3- You become a social man after talking with their support for days.

    Cons
    1- Disk speed is very low and the disk itself is old
    2- Their os installer is just broken and don't work, I tried debian, ubuntu and centos.
    3- The kernel is outdated ( they told me that on the chat )
    4- one time the support told me they cannot provide such support to install an OS even if its ubuntu 20 and not a special os from the moon.
    5- The VNC is not even there, They have Java thing from World War I 1914, but its not even supported.

  • @Jorbox said:

    Isn't that a function of whatever OS install? Or am I missing something?

    4- one time the support told me they cannot provide such support to install an OS even if its ubuntu 20 and not a special os from the moon.

    It's an unmanaged service. I'm sure if you paid them for support they'd have helped you.

    5- The VNC is not even there, They have Java thing from World War I 1914, but its not even supported.

    So they have IPMI? Isn't that one of the more standard ways of putting an OS onto bare metal?

  • @Jorbox said: and the disk itself is old

    are you using hdd or ssd? my server is ssd and is not a very old disk...

    Model Family: Intel S4510/S4610/S4500/S4600 Series SSDs
    Device Model: INTEL SSDSC2KB240G8

    anyway even hetzner can deliver you old disks like this one i have (from auction) with 74.000 hours

    Yes but I don't know how their system works!

    I agree but I don't ask to install a custom iso, I just wanted to install the os on the server I bought from their panel.

    Yes but its not working with most of the systems and browsers I think its still works netscape browser

    Hetzner auction are cheaper than the normal servers sold on their website and of course there are a reason for that,

    The server I bought from them was HDD but they gave me SSD so I tried it and it was really slow, So I have asked them to change it to HDD and this was really slow.

  • @zomby1 Until when is this discount valid? How much would you like for this server?

    Their NOC-PS is probably broken.
    @jonathanspw I can fix all the issues mentioned here if you need.

    Cons
    1 - Got #s? Do you expect a brand new drive in a BUDGET server with old hardware?
    2 - It works just fine doing many reloads every day.
    3 - Um what? Install what you want?
    4 - We're happy to start an OS reload for you.
    5 - Again, BUDGET (OLD) hardware. You get what you pay for, bud.

    Clearly some serious bias here.

    We don't use NOC-PS and all functions of our panel are fully working.

    I have one of these with @jonathanspw , nothing but GOODNESS! I don't use the auto installer, I prefer to install the OS myself through their secured IPMI.

    The way you describe the java console @Jorbox is enough to tells us you don't have much experience dealing with dedicated servers. That's standard procedure. If you want HTML5 VNC you need to buy a current gen or at least a server with a board not older than 3 years possibly. BTW not being rude, just my opinion or my perception.

    If you want fancy stuff (btw I think their server control panel is super fancy) then the VPS market is what you should stick to. If you want bare metal performance, you got to bring in your skills or pay higher prices for a full managed.
