    So, $0.97 USD/Month? Forever? or not?

  • $0.97 USD/Month
    Forever? or not?

  • You don't actually have to repeat these many times, idk neither. Probably wait someone else to answer, but if it's recurring, it's a great deal.

  • -% the first 9007199254740991 months

    So not forever, no!

    Also, if you go with

    https://www.ovh.de/order/vps/?v=3#/vps/build?selection=~(range~'Starter)

    You can choose probably not all but most other avaliable DCs of OVH.

    Edit: No, no, no, it's first 12 months in ovh.de

    Even if it says it's recurring, I'd take it with a grain of salt.

    Nowadays "recurring" doesn't necessarily mean it's recurring, and it's only recurring until the next price hike :smiley:

    Correct

  • 'monthly discount' is all I see in this (US OVHcloud) panel's shitty and quite frankly broken and bare state on the invoice. Automatic renewal with no way of changing that so we'll see.

    I've never actually used OVH before, so for me this is a surprise (but it really shouldn't).

    ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Amusingly the coupon it applies is called " -% the first 9007199254740991 months"

    That's quite the discount length!

  • Despite the broken name, the code itself seems to be a -77% and is only valid for those two US regions. If you set it to pay annually you end up with $11.59 for a year which isn't half bad. It's unclear whether that recurs.

    The one on the Europe site exists with the same % but isn't broken and will happily admit it's only for 12 months. On there you can get a year for €11.57 before tax but it definitely doesn't recur.

  • Some MJJs have already tested the deal. New account only, but the deal is solid and forever, recurring, thus making the prev $17.88 not a grandfathered diamond.

    Considering the US discount is uh.. kinda broken and has a silly name while the Europe one is the same discount and only lasts 12 months, I would be willing to bet it's not intentional this recurs forever and it may be revoked in future if OVH realise.

    For now though, pretty solid. Just don't bet on keeping it for years and years until that time comes.
