    Those guys are amazing. I migrated to RootNerds when Inception Hosting stopped providing VPS in Germany, and I spent six happy months with them (Sept 13 - March 14).

    Amazing support (even at 4AM German time), no downtime, fast HW. Go for it ;)

    The Sole Proprietorship was founded 03.2009 and changed to a corporate company 11/2011.

    Thanks @iceTwy - appreciate your feedback!

    As long as it's not against german laws (which apply, as described in our ToS) or it's explicitely forbidden in our ToS, it's not a problem.

  • I have a vps from Rootnerds, I can recommend it sincerelly! No downtime until now!

    do you have a yearly discount?

    We do not offer yearly payments. Maybe if the company turns three we'll do that. We know the interest for this is high.

  • I'm checking out various VPS's at the moment as a compliment too/replacement for my Linode server/external backup for data. I'm in Germany too (though my German isn't hot) and the low(er) ping is very appealing. I believe the packet loss below is something related to my ISP, I have a similar packet loss to my Linode atm

    --- 84.200.70.70 ping statistics ---

    183 packets transmitted, 178 packets received, 2.7% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 28.618/35.130/178.124/18.080 ms

    That said, I'm not sure about the switch from XEN to OpenVZ & the loss of my UK Proxy. (server rarely used for that, except for the odd BBC sport stream and getting non low violence versions of games from Steam :) )

    Node Root15 is offline for several hours now. No Reaction from RootNerds, Tickets still unassigned after hours.

  • RootNerdsRootNerds Member, Host Rep

    Looks like we've screwed up here @foetti @tarasis.
    We've sent out an official statement about this downtime. Sorry again - we know this is a bad first impression for many of our new customers.

    Ticket had not been answered for almost 4 hours. Question to move to another node had not been answered at all.

    No need to apologise to me, I wasn't commenting on your service performance :) Just that I am/was interested in your service as I'm also in Germany & (potentially) looking for something cheaper than the $20+5 I pay to Linode every month.

    Hello foetti,

    we've answered your ticket as soon as it was possible. You were not the only customer affected and we've had to re-prioritize and answer everyone. Your question was simply missed and answered as soon as you asked it a second time.

    I got one of the myVPS XXL deals on Sunday (well 2am Sunday morning). Its nice to be on a box which feels like its just upstairs and not a thousand+ KMs away.

    The box itself is very snappy, though I've only done some testing thus far on it. (Including on Serverbear) I've had a little interaction with support and the livechat. In both cases the staff were very friendly & helpful. Speed, well it was about 5 hours between each email response which is fine (I wanted rDNS set for two IP addresses).

    The server performance:

    UnixBench score: 3414.7 I/O rate: 300.0 MB/second Bandwidth rate: 7.1 MB/second

    [email protected]:~# wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash CPU model : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4930K CPU @ 3.40GHz Number of cores : 4 CPU frequency : 3399.909 MHz Total amount of ram : 4096 MB Total amount of swap : 0 MB System uptime : 1 day, 10:50, Download speed from CacheFly: 11.1MB/s Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 2.41MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 6.92MB/s Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 3.04MB/s Download speed from i3d.net, Rotterdam, NL: 10.5MB/s Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 10.4MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.03MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 4.84MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 4.60MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 5.13MB/s I/O speed : 275 MB/s

    So CPU frequency is not the 3.9GHz listed above or on the website and the download speeds are slower than I'm used to from Linode. (I/O speed there is 656MB/s, an 1GB XVMLab box in LA managed 871MB/s)

    There are options, which you pay monthly for, when placing your order for improving the portspeed: Min. 100 Mbit 2,50 € & Min. 1000 Mbit 10,00 € + 5,00 € Setup Fee
    You can also enable SSD-Caching for 1,50 € a month. (I passed on them while placing the order, and you can't it seems add them in the billing portal, it claims there are no available add-ons. I presume if I wanted them I need to email sales/support)

    You can not manually set rDNS entries, you need to message support and get them to do it. A bit of a pain but its a one off thing.

    Pro's for me:

    Close to me (ping is 28-30ms)
    Fast Machine & tons of ram for only €4.99 a month ($6.46)

    Cons

    Lowish bandwidth (fine for me I think, paltry compared to others claiming 2+TB)
    Need support to do achieve something I should be able to do on the web interface.

    --
    Edit

    I never thought to ask about what backup options they have. I guess at these prices its probably as cheap to get another VPS (given that Linode's backups are $5/m, and services such as Backupsy start at a minimum of $10/m). Just seems awfully wasteful resource wise.
