Setup fee is only 53€ if you pay monthly and opt for 12 months contract. I believe the 64GB RAM OVH Special back then also had a setup fee? Anyway 50€ setup fee is smth I’d still consider paying for some good spec dedi. Still, I am currently cutting costs so no way I’ll order that beast. Just thought I’d share because many ppl seem to want to get that OVH 64GB RAM Special or similar specs (obviously OVH has some other perks though).
I had a cheap $5 EUServ dedi (a little atom box) that I used as a seedbox for a good 6 or so months. Network was pretty good. Comparable to online .net I’d say, never noticed any outages, though I didn’t do much monitoring on the box.
Only think lacking in my opinion was any DDoS protection.
Could be. I’m not sure. They claim to have a few others in the mix on their network page, but I don’t have a server there any longer to do some testing. Could have different routes prioritized throughout the day. Edit: nvm, it’s single-homed Cogent. Kinda wish they just said that on the page - https://bgpview.io/asn/35366#upstreams-v4
Cogent single-homed isn’t all that bad anyway. My Plex server is and to quote the great Low End philosopher, “Network is fast my man.”
