Online.net reviews?

Dear users,

I just saw an offer coming from Online.net about an 8GB RAM dedicated server. It looks attractive, but I want to be sure it's a good deal. Does anyone have a server with them? What about the uptime? Outages? And last but not least at all: is the support good?

I found something about spambots in the past, but I can't find 'dirty IP's' on SpamHaus or so.

Thanks, Dennis

    I have one, server is a Dell R210II , it preforms like you expect it to. Occasional network slowdowns can happen on prime-time. I found that some places are unroutable and speeds are mere 1-2 Kb/s. Support is non-existant, unless you speak perfect french and can call them.

    Even with premium support option 20€ for 4hr SLA didnt get the answers needed.

    Pay peanuts, expect monkeys applies.

    They're pretty good, I have the very same 8 GB RAM E3-1220 + 1 TB x 2 (Hardware RAID) and 1 Gbit/sec unmetered (100 Mbit/sec guaranteed) is pretty awesome for the price ;)

    Uptime has been 100% since I got it, the server comes with iDRAC (IPMI / KVMoverIP like)

    Never needed support so can't say about that.

  • @SpeedBus: How long are you with them now? :)

    Am I right that you can only buy the servers through the english page here? https://console.online.net/en/order/server

    Somebody said you can't buy thorugh the french console if you aren't french and many products aren't available for foreign customers.

    Providers I recommend: DNS: [DNSMadeEasy - Rage4] Monitoring: [nodeping] VPS: [Backupsy - Bandwagonhost - BuyVM - Cloudshards - Crissic Solutions - Crowncloud - Inception Hosting - prometeus - RamNode - Torqhost - Vultr]

  • @jaakka: Wait, do I have to speak French to get a decent support?

    Eek, now they seem to be sold out on the plan.

    @DennisdeWit , if you use english, they probably dont respond at all. I called them however and spoke in french.

    No issues here. They do warn you not to customize any bios settings and such, but at the price they charge I don't blame them. The bandwidth in DC3 has been better than OVH for me. Been a client for about a month.

    If memory serves it took me about 24 hours. My memory though...it's a terrible thing.

  • Actually i got one of the 160GB to test out, took about 15 mins to setup. i really like their control panel for remote installs (:

    I just ordered the 2GB one, going to check out if it's better then Kimsufi :)

  • Got one, I opened a ticket using my slightly broken French and got a response. Basically the network throughput to the UK was pretty dire but it seems they fixed it with more Level3
