24hour review for racktech.ru

To get in on the roubletrouble deals I decided to try racktech.ru. I found them on vps.menu, they are not the absolute cheapest but cheapest supporting PayPal. I was particularly attracted by 100Mbit unmetered (most other Russian providers in this price range are port limited to 10Mbit). I got OpenVZ in Russia (currently on free trial):

Their website is in Russian, but the order page, control panel and support are all in English. Support has been great. Tun/Tap was enabled via ticket.

So far I am very happy with this VPS for the price. I got it primarily to proxy traffic to Russia/Ukraine.

  • Can you share test IP? They has - New Year 50% off for KVM, nice prices :)

    Yes, I can boogie

  • Where to find offer page? =]

    Looking for high concurrent network connections

    These are the OpenVZ plans: http://racktech.ru/service/vps/openvz/
    KVM here: http://racktech.ru/service/vps/

    Test IP: you can probably just use their web server, it appears to be hosted in the same DC.

  • glad you had a good first 24 hours bro.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    Looks like you can get 50% off (doesn't mention if recurring or not, prolly not): http://racktech.ru/news/promo/happynewyear2015/
    or you can preload $135 to your account and they are just giving you a free tablet (not mentioned what about shipping). Checking their Twitter, looks like they've just opened less than a month ago on December 1st, so exercise a certain bit of caution if you decide to go for this.

  • pretty good speeds.

    Favourite host in general: Ramnode (affiliate link)
    Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr ($50 free credit for new accounts, affiliate link)

    50% Off recurring for 6 months than full prices applied So far best offer for Rubles :)

    Yes, I can boogie

    fitvpn said: for 6 months

    I think the 6 months period mentioned is related only to their raffle of 30 coupons [that you have a chance to win], and the three coupons that are just posted on that page are likely to work under different conditions.

  • rm_ said: rm

    I tried contact them, they reply - 6 months and possible extend to one year. So far speed test gave 60Mbps, its not a capped to 10Mbps as others :)

    Yes, I can boogie

  • deployvmdeployvm Member, Provider

    The provider seems to be single-homed to AS15835 but uses IP transit from TTK and VimpelCom. They are major ISPs in Russia, so I guess this is why the speeds are good.

  • Looks like they new player and just wants impact to the VPS market with these prices..

    Yes, I can boogie

    Anyone using it for more than a month in realworld ?? Actual realtime reviews on uptime, latency and disk I/O. Would be interested to know if they offer support in English ? and how well they reply/help.

    Edit* While I checked pricing, aren't they "at par" with US DC pricings like SYS/OVH/Hetzner ?
    Don't think any BIG discounts in grabbing one from them! what say ?

  • I signed up a few minutes ago and at the moment they have problems with Paypal. Their account can't receive money.

    The support replied very fast and they told me that it will take 3-5 days to resolve the problem. They also have holidays right now, because their christmas day is the 7th of January.

    I will keep you updated.

  • akzakz Member

    I dont see a free trail offer on their page, anyone else?
