  • Is game server (Minecraft) acceptable on this VPS? Planning to take 80GB NVMe + 8 cores. My other variant to take is Hetzner's CX31 with fewer cores and lesser clock speed.

    Should be perfectly fine.

    Wow, just realized the upgrade pricing is amazing too! Trying to decide between an extra 8GB of ram or an extra 4 cores :). This is basically a really good Black Friday deal.

  • Hi,

    Do you have any offer on dedicated server?

    No big sale currently, but we do offer Dedicated Servers:
    https://www.smarthost.net/dedicated-servers.php
    We don't really do LET pricing on Dedicated Servers currently, though our prices are quite reasonable for the regular market.

  • @SmartHost Does the upgrade/downgrade happen automatically to the VPS?

    As far as my knowledge goes, you can't downgrade storage on KVM virt.

    there are ways and means for it

    but of-course not easy

    The upgrades should happen instantly (at least they did on my other Smarthost VPSes)

    Depends on what it is.
    IPs may need a little manual involvement, and Disk cannot be downgraded without a re-install, and upgrade requires you to extend your partition via GParted typically (usual KVM issues with that...).

    Not worth the trouble...we don't deal with that aggravation, and require re-install if you want to downgrade disk space.

  • Nice deal! Bought one. Would it be possible to buy two KVM NVME SSD Budget VPS and merge them to one VM?

    No process exists for that, but there are upgrades to be had, to allow you to double the RAM and Disk. If you do both, glad to throw in another IPv4 if needed.

    1tb or more... mostly cold storage. Nextcloud or Similar.. just 1-2 user setup to save photos and docs directly. After initial dump, even 100gb bandwidth will be enough. If we can meet at same promo price it would be awesome.

    Thnx

  • @SmartHost Very tempted, looks great for a gameserver. Some questions:

    1. Would it be possible to try for a month, and upgrade to a yearly cycle if it looks promising? I see you partially answered this earlier in the thread, but I wanted to confirm that the future annual billing price would be what's listed in this thread, not a different price.
    2. Would it be possible to switch server locations in the future? I'm sure a reimage would be needed, but would I be able to maintain the same billing?

    Thanks!

    Understood. Its the cpu, disk, and ram I want, which comes out to more than double so I figured I'd ask.

    Not going to be possible in that market at this time. Storage VPS gear not present there, and the space quantity you need isn't available in that price range.
