Looking for BF Deal AMD/8GB+/100GB (Student)
On Black Friday 2021 I purchased a Windows VPS which I started using to watch Twitch and sometimes check pc stuff while on phone.
In August 2022 I have started an apprenticeship as a software developer (I earn pennies).
I also received a MacBook M1 and realized how useful the Windows VPS actually is.
My usage is about hour-ish daily, checking emails, LET, private stuff and fixing some bugs and issues. This is very useful because I basically have a full (private) pc with me every day anywhere I go (MacBook, phone or random coworker pc)
Lately I have been needing more power. I’m happy with what I got, but maybe someone can offer a better deal?
This VPS gets used for following things:
- Sending and Receiving emails (using thunderbird) from another server, I don’t host email.
- using 1password and managing things (web accounts, passwords, etc)
- youtube, phub, watching twitch to get drops.
- word, documents, excel sheets, all the office and school work you can imagine
- firefox and browsing, will be used for looking stuff up, doing research and whatever I need.
- vscode and whatever other dev tools I use. Compiling stuff (rarely) developing stuff and generally creating things.
- remote access and IT help. So many many wireguard tunnels, rustdesk, parsec, teamwiever, syncthing etc.
There will be no illegal activity or illegal files stored. Legit School/Work/Dev PC.
Specs I want:
- CPU: beefy, will be used to the max because windows sucks. (why this post exists I guess)
- IPv4: mandatory, ip must be clean. No blacklists or BS
- IPv6: mandatory, ip must be clean. No blacklists or BS
- RAM: 8gb minimum (16gb is what I’m looking for and 24gb - 32gb is better but focus on non shitty cpu)
- Storage: SSD (duh?) 150gb-250gb would be good, but 100gb is okay
- GPU: wouldn’t say no, but obviously can’t afford at this price range?
- Software: Windows server 2022, can buy my own key for whatever peanuts it costs. You can provide your own, I don’t care, I want 0 spyware and your crappy preinstalled crap to “change password from the web GUI”
- Privacy: no shitty software installed, no spying, will try to encrypt files anyways (LET, can you help?). No sketchy stuff. Don’t want my birth cert leaked lol.
- Bandwidth: 1TB is plenty, give me 2TB because i won't use it anyways
- Location: the closer to Frankfurt Germany the better (further location possible if the deal is absolute killer)
- Networking: minimum 250/100 always there. Preferred 10gig shared or 1gig dedicated, I don’t really care tbh, flexible.
- uptime: 99.86% I allow you 12h per year of downtime.
- deadpool/exit scam: please let me know 10 days before server is gone so I can pull my data. an email is enough, will be kept confidential.
- Your Company: you must be in business for at least 2 years. I don’t want some shitty/sketchy stuff. Be legit please. I'll do a quick google, let please give 2 cents on the sellers if you see.
- Trial: 5 days trial (if possible?)
- Recurring: yes, duh?
Paying plan and cost:
80€ yearly or 25€ quarterly or 10€ monthly
choose whichever you want, I have no preference. I want something good.
Charge me at 2nd using paypal and you’ll get the money every time. (any other paying plan I dislike) Card is possible but not preferred.
What is possible? I’d love a killer deal because Black Friday. But I don’t want to beg for a killer deal that’s unsustainable, must be recurring, both seller and buyer must be happy.
or ping RackNerd, maybe Dustin is insane enough to ship a server to Netherlands/Germany/France and dedicate it to me for 80€ per year or 25€ quarterly or 10€ monthly (one can dream lol, plus unprofitable lol)
What can you offer and still be happy?
if i don't find anything till 30th i'll extend my normal service on 1st
it's 8gb, meh epyc x4, 120gb and really good networking
i'm preferably looking for excellent cores, 16gb, good provider
