Netcup Easter Egg Hunt

FalzoFalzo Member

like every year Netcup just announced their Egg Hunt: https://www.netcup-news.de/2021/03/30/ostern-2021-steht-vor-der-tuer/

starting from Sunday 04/04 - most likely the eggs will be visible on certain spots on their page and the products within will change positions every 15-30 minutes.

let's try and collect the interesting ones here, as usual the products can't be orderes when just the links are shared...

    You must have no sense of humor at all then. Maybe this suits you better instead.

    bringing this back up, because only a few hours left ;-)

    I'll try to list the interesting eggs and the pages they might appear on.

    while waiting, I just looked at my collection of old order links from the past and found this...
    https://www.netcup-offers.eu/bestellen/produkt.php?produkt=1542 (ref) - true lowend I'd say, but no way of ordering anymore anyway :#

    let's see what they come up with this time then.

    Really hoping for something with more cpu, and less ram and disk space. I dont want to rent dedis to encode just a few video streams if i dont have to. RS4000 have been serving me well, but i dont need the ram and disk space, so i am paying way more than i need to.

    that's gonna be tough as it's usually the other way around. more ram and/or space but same cores...

    It seems to me that there are at least two new details this year:

    • They explicitly say that the eggs will be around (subject to availability) until next Sunday
    • "netcup Twinbook (LIMITED EDITION)"

    Do we know anything about the netcup Twinbook? :)

    Just be sure to read the TOS/AGB etc.:

    I still have a VPS from last year which has a contract period of 12 months - recurring. So when you get one of the servers you can only cancel them at exactly one point in the year. I still have use for this one but thought of upgrading which is also not possible.

    Just be aware, I found this quite unusual.

    yeah, german habits... contracts have a period, especially their special offers nearly all come with a contract period of 12 month (billing period might differ) and you need to cancel the product latest 31 days before end of that period. otherwise the contract term will extend automatically for another 12 month.

    and be aware that they will hold you to these terms. just stopping to pay will not end your contract and eventually have them send collection agencies after you (around the globe if need be).

    so they are definitely not the right choice for people who are expecting services to end automatically in any way or that are somewhat used to 'lazy' contractual terms.

    if you bought a service last easter then most likely it's too late for that to cancel now. you can see the earliest cancellation date in their control panel on the product infos.

    just to be aware for new customers: they also most likely ask for validation/verification via ID on new signups and they usually do not remove VAT just because you are outside europe unless you prove that you are actually a business/company...

    I don't like contracts, that's why I only have one promotion from 2019. I prefer paying full price and have the choice to cancel in the next month other than in a year.

    Even as a German myself I find that kind of contract extremely annoying (if you don't cancel until X days before end of contract -> auto extend for a year). One of a few more reasons for me not to go with Netcup for VPSes. For domains very cheap and reliable though.

    Can you not cancel as soon as you get it set at the end of the billing period?
    Then you only have to remember to remove the cancellation if you want to extend.

    I feel you. I also do not like that very much, but you probably have to admit that we are quite used to it... because subscription models like that have been everywhere and still are. think about power delivery (okay that's easy, because they raise prices all year anyway granting you and easy exit) or even worse mobile phones and shit. 24 months, cheap. but dare you to forget cancellation in time, then it can be another year fpr triple the price or more...

    yes, that indeed is an option.

    edit: but people still might get confused if the billing term differs. for the bigger services you might be billed monthly but still are locked in a yearly contract, so...

    Yeah - It's what I do with other contracts I've had. Always felt more comfortable doing this. Good to know you can do this with Netcup.

    edit: If I'm going into a 12mth contract - I feel better knowing it isn't going to auto renew if i forget :)

    Ditto for me.

    I grabbed a couple of servers last Easter and have canceled both. If nothing of interest comes up this year, then I should still (in theory) have a chance to undo the cancelation shortly before it takes effect.

    It's not an ideal situation, and you have to stay on top of it, but it's one way around the crazy long German/netcup-style notification period.

    I still consider it a shady way of doing business. To me it is a way to bind costumers to you because you think you can't convince them with your service. Netcup some years back didn't even accept cancellations via email because lack of wet signature, although you closed the contract digitally without a signature as well. Fortunately at least that changed meanwhile due to changes in the law. I want my services to come from good and reasonable human beings, which is why I moved my hosting stuff to Uberspace a while ago. Anyway, still Netcup offers sick specs for low prices, so have fun finding eggs! :)

    Edit: I know, actually it makes no sense to complain here. I just find it almost a bit fascinating, because Netcup has such a great offering. Why would you want to piss off your customers just to grab the money of a few people, that forget to cancel. I mean they seem to receive "webhoster of the year" awards, so maye it's just me anyway..

    no. you need to find the egg and click it as the nonce will change every time...

    edit: ideally mention where you found the eggs to each product. they will eventually disappear or be in other spots over time (15-30 minutes cycle).
    however if they do it like in the last years, they eventually will come back on these spots in kind of a rotation...
