What location of VPS?
Where's the review here? Nice title bait.
They have many locations.
May be in wrong cathegory.
Nothing G-Core can do about, https://edgecenter.ru/en/ is their russian company so try that one.
Everyones a nazi I guess?
What do you expect them to do in this situation.
I don't think its related direct to Ukraine. Just heads up.
Politics mixed with business?
to be honest I do not recognize nazi behavior
Of course it is, without the invasion Russia would have still been participating in the world economy, also the occupied Belarus and other areas of other countries under the Russian boot. Please move the "reviews" of the imaginary "Nazi" world to the appropriate place.
Same, its just restrictions that G-Core can do nothing about except create a russian company to operate in those countries.
They provide service only accross Russia. And prices increased 2-3 times for now.
Every discrimination by nationality is nazi behavior.
Sucks for you but it isn't G-Cores fault. It is the stupid restrictions.
Nothing G-Core Labs can do. Their governing country has decided to restrict business with yours. Luckily you have options and many providers will still do business with you.
Just get a BuyVM VPS in Luxembourg if you require that location.
Definitely EU sanctions, no Russian sanctions.
Since edgecenter is still fine with EU costumers.
Just the EU brand boots people from having Russian services.
I don't understand this completely. Who's sanctioned by whom here and why? Afaik EU don't sanction every private person from .ru or what?
We can grow them as garbage is not a problem just surprises this manner when the business begins to mix with politics. Customs pays you money and you humiliate it on a national basis. Luxembourg is still positioned as offshore .. F..
It resembles a situation with OVH when they blocked a lot of Chinese accounts on a national basis. Here is the Western world in which we(you) live ..
It's quite common for Russians supportive of the current regime to misunderstand what a Nazi is. They seem to think it means anyone acting against Russia.
No one knows what a real nazi is in the current political USA climate.
Excessively irresponsible title when the content is added for context. You should feel bad about it.
How about Belarus mentioned. They still not in war?
Just heads up. I can skip them. no problem if they sort out white from black.
Remind me SAR in 1960's/ Everything only for white. Its almost the same but in our time.
i swear! all for yabs only!
@jenkki stop whining, GCore did nothing wrong, get a different provider or move out of Russia. Everyone hates the situation but nothing you/we can do about it.
I am not taking sides in this specific discussion, but is this actually correct? Are there actual restrictions against every .ru and .by private person?
of course not!
It isn't about domains right? just hosting in general, but afaik there are no restrictions but I have asked their support. There might be some trading restrictions but afaik none that limit hosting stuff.
The problem is what this does not concern any particular politician. They type block everyone in a row, although many people may not support this policy. Some bad countries outcasts. Only they are alone.
