    if I order one service from netcup, is it possible to cancel it? or am I stuck? do the 30 days "test" also work on these?

    Iirc the cancellation policy on the checkbox stated 14 days.

    Okey, so no problem to cancel any of the "root" plans within 14 days.. I don't want to get "stuck" with Fast Rabbit if I can get RS Ostern L.

    I also saw this in the FAQ

    Does the satisfaction guarantee apply to the Easter promotions?
    Yes, the satisfaction guarantee applies to promotions on web hosting and root server products

    I ordered one RS Ostern L , but I ended up getting two confirmation emails for the order and shows both the servers in my account.

    I will cancel one of the servers.

    Thanks for sharing the 14 day cancellation policy.

    Yeah it works well in the past I ordered two special VPS by mistake, been able to cancel pressing a button, and I didn't pay anything. Transferring to another user is very easy as well.

  • I'm so glad I got the 1.84 EUR deal. I know it's not a dedicated core but it works so good as my new Plex media server, no buffers even with transcodes. Very good!

    I think it's 1 shared core, 2GB ram, 20GB disk, 40TB traffic, 12 month contract and billing term

    Bandwidth: 40 TB / month
    Storage: 20 GB SSD (RAID10)
    RAM: 2 GB
    Processor: 1 vCore (shared, don't know what the actual processor is, says QEMU Virtual CPU version 2.5+ 2.10 GHz)

    I'm actually surprised considering I use Windows Server 2019 with GUI and StableBit CloudDrive for my Plex server storage.

    Definitely is, I don't do any 4k transcodes tough, only 1080p and below. And I'm the only one using the server as of the moment.

    Is it still "0.0 st" when you are transcoding / using 100% CPU? Nice little VPS anyway, but it doesn't appear often compared to their bigger VMs. You've been lucky being able to get one!

    you will only see steal occuring if the system is under load but not on an idle system...

    @pbx on a VPS Ostern L (2core) running geekbench multicore steal varies and goes up to 5% but that's it.

    cpu performance decreased a lot after the node got filled, GB5 directly after deployment (sunday) vs today: https://browser.geekbench.com/v5/cpu/compare/7274611?baseline=7308694

    keeping in mind that this is their shared vps line, this is totally expected and still good value given the price for 2c/8G/160G/80TB 🤷‍♂️
    I have an older 2c BF vps which is in a comparable range. maybe even a tad better, but probably a lot going on for a while on the new nodes anyway.

    procinfo says it's AMD though, so yeah likely some Epyc:

    vendor_id  : AuthenticAMD
    cpu family  : 6
    model       : 6
    model name  : QEMU Virtual CPU version 2.5+

    @Falzo said: VPS Ostern L (2core) running geekbench multicore steal varies and goes up to 5% but that's it.

    Ok thanks. My VPS with them (EPYC 7702, VPS line) has very small steal time as well, if any. "VPS Karneval 2020" had more (up to 20%) and an Intel CPU. I was curious to know if the small "special" had more than their regular VPS line or was on an older node. It seems like it's on a normal node, given the good performance @edoarudo5 reports. Good deal!

    I am having problems writing cache to stream from CloudDrive because of the lack of storage so I cannot test it now. Planning to format this system, install APISCP, NextCloud and see how it goes.

    Links change, and some VPS don't stay available more than a few minutes... you can check on https://www.camelus.eu/netcup/ every 10 minutes or so to see if it appears in one of the first lines.

    It seems like a 1-year contract on monthly billing. And you must cancel 31days before contract expiry or auto renewed

    Indeed, the offers always say what the minimum contract period is and what the billing period is:

    Mindestvertragslaufzeit = 'minimum contract period'
    Abrechnungsperiode = 'billing period'

    The two periods are often the same (e.g., "12 months" for both), but sometimes the billing period is shorter than the minimum contract period (e.g., "12 months" for contract, and "6 months" for billing), in which case you're obliged to pay (given this example) a second bill 6 months later. It's even possible for the billing period to be longer than the contract period: consider the current promotion VPS Ostern M, which has a contract period of 0 months and a billing period of 12 months, which means that you can cancel at any time and receive a refund or credit for the remaining funds.

    (Important details :) )

    Did some of you had a VPS and a RS with Netcup and could tell if the difference in performance is noticeable? (Only had their VPSs myself)

    I'd assume that steal time is close to 0 anytime on the RS, is that the case? As there should be less customers per node, is i/o better?

    The steal on their VPS series can be up to 60% per core and they (the support) don't even care. Rootservers stay below 3% at max. If they're slow just contact the support.

    I/O is fine if you aren't on a HDD.

    My experience with vServers has been positive in terms of steal time (steal time hasn't been a significant issue), but other people's experiences with vServers seem to vary in this respect.

    My experience with Root-Servers is that their performance is much more consistent than vServers.

    It really depends on your use case and what you want/need.

    Interesting, thanks. Never saw more than 20% steal time and it was on a special deal, the VPS I have with them that is more on par with their "normal" offering is oscillating between 0 and 3%

    @angstrom said: It really depends on your use case and what you want/need.

    You're right. I always had good performance and never had to deal with a node with 60% steal time: as I experienced it their VPS nodes are perfect for my use case. I'll see how it evolves as time passes.

    It seems that the main factor with the performance of their VPS line is who the "neighbors" on the node are and what they use their VPS for (as the CPU isn't capped if you use more than a ridiculously low percentage), while you have great performance even with heavy users as neighbors on the RS line. So far I can't complain though, from my experience the VPS line provides awesome performance and stability for the price.

    Yes but only 4 dediziert EPYC cores, while he has 6 E5-2680 v4. CPU-wise it's not going to be better (not that worse either, but keep in mind that it's more expensive).

    @BBTN I'd say it depends what your needs are, and if you could find a good use for extra SSD space and RAM. If yes, the RS M is really nice, as @Falzo said.

    If not, keep the one you currently have, unless you already have too much resources: if that's the case you can consider downgrading to a VPS Osten M to save a few bucks...

    Unless one wants the flexibility of being able to cancel at any time, which is the case with VPS Ostern M (4,32€/m), I think that VPS Ostern L (4,56€/m) is a much better deal, but the problem is that it may be sold out by now. :/

    (VPS Ostern L has the same specs as a BF promotion that I have -- a great deal.)

    What are the specs of this one? Like VPS 1000 G9 while VPS Ostern M is VPS 500 G8?

    If that's the case indeed, my mistake this one is the best deal (2 cores / 8GB RAM / 160 GB SSD). Totally worth the extra cents, as more RAM & more SSD space is very nice for caching, which can - in many cases and with the right configs - compensate the fact that it's from their VPS line and has only two cores...

    Yes, to summarize the differences:

    VPS Ostern M OST21 (equivalent to VPS 500 G8)
    2 vCores
    4 GB RAM
    40 GB SSD
    40 TB Traffic ungedrosselt
    4,32€ pro Monat
    Mindestvertragslaufzeit 0 Monat
    Abrechnungsperiode 12 Monate
    
    VPS Ostern L OST21 (equivalent to VPS 1000 G9)
    2 vCores
    8 GB RAM
    160 GB SSD
    80 TB Traffic ungedrosselt
    4,56€ pro Monat
    Mindestvertragslaufzeit 12 Monate
    Abrechnungsperiode 12 Monate
    

    Given how close the two prices are, we can conclude that one pays a lot for the flexibility of having a contract of 0 months (which is a real flexibility if one wants/needs it).

    Otherwise (if one is happy with a 12-month contract), VPS Ostern L is a much better deal.

    (But as I said above, VPS Ostern L may be sold out by now, and it was rare even on the first few days of the promotion.)

    Exactly. It was available few weeks ago with no 12 month contract (on https://www.netcup-sonderangebote.de/). That being said IMO a 12 Month contract is not a problem as it's easy to transfer the server to another user when not needed anymore; and Netcup appears to be one of the best long term choices, one of the right place to settle down and stop hopping from provider to provider :wink:.

    Yes, I remember that promotion (VPS 1000 G9 WSV21 for 4,55€/m), but I'm almost completely certain that it had a 12-month contract as well -- I remember checking this. :)

    (The only way to settle this now would be to find the original page with the details, or to find someone who bought it and they could check in the billing panel. :) )

    That being said IMO a 12 Month contract is not a problem as it's easy to transfer the server to another user when not needed anymore; and Netcup appears to be one of the best long term choices, one of the right place to settle down and stop hopping from provider to provider :wink:.

    Yes, although I find it hard not to have VPSes at a few other providers as well. :)

    Payment is 12 month in advance but no minimum contract. Current deal is great as well, though!

    Fee/month (standard): 4,55 € (Includes DE statutory VAT .)
    Minimum contractual term: 0 Months
    Accounting period: all 12 months in advance

    I'm with you there. Biggest problem still hanging out on let: too many tempting offers from a bunch of great providers! :wink:
