Does OVH still allow for dedicated server transfer and is this worth it?

analoganalog Member

Hi all,

I have a dedicated server with OVH in Poland that was part of their "DISCOVER" promo; I think it might be from when they started selling services in Poland but I could be wrong about that.

Main point; I no longer need this server and wanted to know if its worth trying to sell / give to someone and transfer it to them or just let it expire. I mainly ask this because it was cheap and on sale at the time and has a 1Gbps port and not just a 250/500mbps one.

Downsides: HDD
Upsides: 1Gbps Port, Cheaper (?)

So is this worth to try and auction / transfer to someone or is the price point no longer worth it and I should just let it expire. I'm getting rid of it regardless, mainly wanna pass it on if there is still a usecase at the current price point.
