FirstHeberg 50% discount on dedis: Atom with RAID for 6.5 EUR/mo (yearly)

PROMO SPECIALE ! 10 % à 50 % de remise avec les codes littlesummer, mediumsummer et bigsummer pour 1, 3, 6, ou 12 mois et + !

https://www.firstheberg.com/serveur-dedie

http://s.lowendshare.com/5/1402371345.228.2014-06-10T033521Z-fh.png

Go get it :D

Now, some more info about Firstheberg, their Pros:

1) 4GB of RAM and a choice of 2x500GB RAID or SSD on the cheapest Atom (which was already a nice deal even at 13 EUR)
2) they are not OVH
3) and not online.net

and Cons:

1) ...they are still from FR
2) network is not very impressive: only 10 Mbit comes guaranteed with the Atom, also they are located in some far-away village (affecting pings and routing) and have mostly one upstream, Cogent http://bgp.he.net/AS197922
3) IPv6 support is still not implemented, I think they promised "next week" to me about 1.5 years ago
4) does not look like they have implemented the automatic VAT deduction in their panel, so likely they still do it manually, and not by deducting VAT, but by extending the paid term for customers who should be VAT-exempt (have to ask for this via ticket every time)

Not clear whether this promo is recurring or not.

    Well maybe that rule needs to be reconsidered. With the advent of 10 EUR dedis, maybe allow sub-100 EUR yearly deals (from companies that are known to have been around for some time).

  • @Firstheberg how about VAT removal for non-EU customer? Do you apply the same VAT procedure similar to Kimsufi?

    Are we eligible for a partial refund (and cancellation) in case that upgrade doesn't come to reality? Paying one year upfront based on promises is a bit risky.

    If you are sure that the upgrade will happen, there's no reason to not answer yes.

  • tr1ckytr1cky Member

    Firstheberg is the worst provider you could stumble upon. They don't answer presales, they let you wait more than a month for a server and if you write them prior to receiving the server, that you don't want it anymore and you'd like your money back, they tell you, that it's not possible. Also their DDoS protection is a joke, they simply block traffic to attacked ports.

    I don't know how work kimsufi about customers out of France but with us, you just have to tell us by ticket on your customer space that you don't have to pay VAT in France and we activate for your account "hors taxe" payment.

    @albertdb It is not just a promise, it is scheduled since 3 month and it will be operational around the 15th july, approximativly. I can say yes about your question, without doubts :)

    I am sorry if you have a bad experience of Firstheberg. We did a lot of work to deliver our customers as soon as possible. The company hired 2 news technicians to answer to all of your questions on the technical support.
    When were you customer ? I will be happy to let you try again our services for few days

    that is right, but maybe I like the idea of chossing only 3 month contract term for a bit higher price, if I am able to extend for the same conditions afterwards ;-)

    after all, I'm only planning or even comparing services on their recurring prices, not one time discounts... I had and have some boxes for over 3-5 years now, so it's all about endurance! ;-)

  • I have asked them - only for first payment.

  • Yeah, if it's not recurring, it's not interesting anymore. Being forced to move (because its original price is not cheap compared to Kimsufi and Online.net) after the initial period is annoying.

    Thanked by 1rm_
  • You have 2xHDD here instead of 1xHDD in OVH for example.

  • Hi,
    The code is valid for the first payment. If we reduce the price during the year of souscription, you will pay the new price and not the old price.

    @theqkash & @albertdb Yes, you can have RAID soft 0/1 with Firstheberg.

    You're insinuating that you are going to reduce prices, isn't it?

    One more question. You said that after the network upgrade, every customer will have a minimum of 100 Mbps guaranteed on each dedicated server.

    Does that minimum word imply that, for example, the i3 one will be able to burst up to 1Gbps?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I said "if" but i'm pretty sure that during this year, we must reduce our prices to stay competitive. Wait and see september I guess.

    About network et Bandwith, for exemple i3 3220 will have 150 Mbps guaranteed and burst 1 Gbps. No traffic limit.
