    Wait, they have actual support? In English? I'm surprised.

  • I'm not a big fan of Kimsufi but I might try out their new mKS 2G. I don't really like the 7-days waiting time though.

    I bought one via kimsufi.fr , for £9 I don't mind waiting 7 days :) haha.

    How? I get redirected to the .nl site?

    Got a mKS three days after ordering on .fr site ... Atom N2800 @ 1.86GHz, Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM HDD Not bad.

    But the thing I liked the most is the control panel ... really impressive.

    BTW, Will I get a UK location if I order on their .co.uk site ?

    no.

    If your Nic handle is from another site it will redirect you. Or if when you put in your address there is a site that matches your country it will redirect you.

    Just wait until it is available in other locations.

    No. You'll get an IP with "UK" in the WHOIS, I think, but it'll be located in Roubaix, France.

    No you won't , You only get a UK IP if you get IP Failover with your details.

  • I see they've updated the .com site again to correct the NIC in the low end machines and they're also back to one hour availability for the minis.

  • rm_rm_ Member

    My Kimsufi 2G has a Gigabit NIC, not that it matters too much as the connection is 100 mbit anyway.

  • JackJack Member, Provider

    I tried to purchase one from kimsufi.fr but I guess they didn't like it...

    They have taken the funds off my card and gave me a verified payment email but that's it.

  • The gig ethernet is useful if you have multiple machines there. I assumed they'd just corrected a typo on the site but have they actually been shipping them with gig nics?

    I'm still waiting for the .co.uk site being updated.

  • rm_rm_ Member

    @abat said: have they actually been shipping them with gig nics?

    It simply depends on which motherboard you get, because NIC is onboard. If you get an Atom N2800 like the three people who posted above (and me), most likely it comes with a motherboard that has Gigabit. But now they made clear they do not guarantee that on the lower plans.

    @Taylor I used my address and I got a payment verified , all legit ;)

  • Any good OpenVZ guides out there? Just got my first dedicated server and would like to virtualise it. Not for selling vps :) Already blew my server three times up by trying to install OpenVZ :)

    Why settle for OVZ when you can install Xen :) Performance for PV is not much worse and if you dont sell it, Xen is best I think even if your CPU is not having a virtualization flag. Try XCP: http://www.xen.org/products/cloudxen.html If you are on windows use xenserver's windows client to admin, it is very easy and you have a control panel too. M

  • I like OpenVZ on my Kimsufi 2G. Works pretty well with weekly vzdumps to my BuyVM NY box. Transfers over at 10MB/sec for the most part too.

  • I heard EU businesses didn't have to charge VAT to non-EU customers.

    Why does a Kimsufi mKS cost me €11.95 (instead of €9.99).

    p.s. - I'm located in Asia.

  • @Whoa probably because you didn't provide the required documents to them to have the VAT removed.

    All of the servers now have a 1 hour wait time on the FR site, so it looks like they are fully stocked, hopefully this means they can roll them out to the UK site :P Also the cost has gone from 6.99 to 8.99 so it should e coming soon....

    I gave up on the .fr site and got myself a KS 2G so if they do release them within the next week I shall be pv'd off :(

  • @birdie25 said: I need this on my local OVH site, NOW!

    Hello, I sent you an instruction in Dutch on how to get this in The Netherlands.

  • I think they will be coming soon :)

  • @rds100 said: probably because you didn't provide the required documents to them to have the VAT removed.

    hmm ... but they didn't ask me for any. I don't recall them asking for something that I didn't provide. But then again, I was filling up the French application form with an online translator. :)

    @Whoa Order a server, but don't pay the invoice; then you need to contact their support about VAT, they will tell you which documents you need to send. After you send those, they will mark your account as zero VAT and generate a new invoice without VAT. Pay just the new one, and you're good to go.

  • Found this :

    for foreign customers VAT is charged

    at https://www.ovh.co.uk/support/termsofservice/payment_proc.xml

    Confusing ...

    Oh ... I already paid the first invoice including VAT :( Let me contact their billing department to see if they can change it going forward.

    Any idea what kind of document they might ask for ?

    Scan of your identity document (passport, driving license...), and a proof of address (some bill with your address on it, e.g. for electricity or water service, etc).

  • Ordered some of the SP 32g in all three locations. Will let you know how they perform

  • Ordered an mKS. For the price, I can consolidate at least 3 of my VPSes that are fairly heavy on disk I/O, save ~50% and get much better (and guaranteed) IO performance, and twice as much drive space. Luckily, those VPSes aren't all THAT heavy on the CPU.

  • They requested ID and address proof but the email keeps bouncing back, however I just got another one, wonder if I they are truly processing my order?

    " Welcome to OVH!

    We confirm the receipt of your payment corresponding to order no. x

    Your order no. x has been processed."

    I know, I'm Dale Maily.

  • If I want to try KVM on their i3 2130s will it be already part of the existing kernels or will it better to use the latest Proxmox?

    How would I get it on there?

  • what about the new stock's cpu and harddisks?

    do they install randomly?

    is there much performance differences between celeron and atom ?

    can you write your mKS specs..

    thanks.

    Hi!

  • I'll post the specs I get when I get the server, yep.

    Don't know if someone already has seen it, but they have a higher price on the german site http://www.ovh.de/dedicated_server/isgenug.xml :(

    (And, yes, it's higher than kimsufi.fr even if you calculate with VAT)

  • @Amfy said: they have a higher price on the german site

    As usual. German pricing is always higher.

    La parole nous a été donnée pour déguiser notre pensée.

  • Out on the UK site now so just ordered a lowend one (will eventually replace my existing 2G test box). Interesting the green numbers on http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/kimsufi.xml seem to be stock numbers unless I am mistaken.
