    I have not find any "reputable hosts with decades in the business and only good reviews" offering kvm/vps with ipv4, 4vcpu, 8GB ram, 200GB ssd (or 75GB nvme), and 40TB traffic for 5โ‚ฌ/month. Have you?

    I think the hardest ones to combine is reputable and only good reviews lol

    So established (enough so to gain a reputation) but not a single overall bad review

  • JarryJarry Member

    I think "decades" (that is at least 20 years!) might be slight problem too...

  • Hi
    I recommend trying contabo
    I've been using contabo for almost 5 years now
    I have not encountered any "major problems"
    contabo does not have tickets
    Need to contact via form or email
    I've only had one urgent problem so far, and support responded within 10 minutes

    I think contabo is a good choice

    About the offer, which is described above
    https://clients.advinservers.com , probably in hosting Germany, 2-4CPU+ etc for 12/14EUR /month .
    The web site advinservers.com checks the browser 10 seconds via popular free cloudflare slow connection. Than their server stops to serve the user. Likely because the free or 20EUR cloudflare service does not like the light browser.
    Which normal user will wait the TCP connection for 10 seconds?

    I tried to register with them more about a year ago. It took me 30 minutes. They site did not expln their formats . Result: no luck for a simple registration. Absolutely needless hands of their engineers! Moreover, after the attempt of the registration their managemnet of that web site changed the own policy, as they wish, and sent me dozen of invoices on payment for the unknown services.

    You mean IPv6, right, because I haven't seen anyone offering that spec WITHOUT IPv4.

    Also, if you mean Contabo, they are not offering that spec at that price. What I could find there is:

    4 vCPU Cores
    8 GB RAM
    50 GB NVMe
    or 200 GB SSD
    1 Snapshot
    32 TB Traffic*

    for 6 Eur (5.99 if you like) and they have a setup fee for the same amount.
    Could you link me the deal you mentioned? I need one more idler.

    For 6 Eur Prometeus (a brand of cdlan) offers:

    KVM Powered with Fibre Channel SAN Disk

    3 Core @2.6 Ghz
    8 GB Dedicated RAM
    400GB Disk
    1 IPv4, /64 IPv6 Addresses
    10000 GB Dedicated internet traffic
    Italy Location
    

    I think it compares well. Also, there is no setup fee for any term and there is a serious discount for a year: 54 Eur compared to 72 Contabo 18 Eur, or 3 months of service.

    Post your YABS and I would post mine.

    I would have recommended advin 3-4 months ago, but since then it seems that support takes forever when your VPS is down. Moving you to their new panel was quite bad as I had duplicate machines, non-responsive machines and lockups during boot - even now I have a machine that is stuck on boot (which I did not initiate) and I am not going to bother opening a ticket.

    I decided to move to a different provider.

    Could you PM me your client email at least so that I can take a look at the issues, even if you plan on switching? We need to investigate these types of problems to improve, otherwise we would be simply unaware. We can offer you a couple months of free credit if you would like.

    Our control panel does not affect server functionality, it is more likely that it is a hardware or underlying issue. We are investing significantly into new hardware and infrastructure, but this is something that will take time (we estimate upgrades to be complete this month).

    I redirects to net and I have no idea why is that because it is only a redirect.
    Google mysterious ways.
    I don't bother them because nobody uses .com anymore I only put it here because the company started with .com as it was fashionable then, afterwards changed the logo to "the .net consultants" so .net became the only prometeus domain in use.
