Spoiling Hetzner - A very small review


#221

@Falzo – I think a surprisingly large number of our long-time customers feel the same way as you do. I’ll make sure to pass on your comments as well. --Katie


#222

@Hetzner_OL
I really really despise your products jk.

( ordered another dedi)

@Falzo don’t get mad at me just like some better organized functionalities but in all honesty panel is more than enough. :slight_smile:

I do like invoices getting flagged as paid in a faster way ( after… Paying).


#223

Paying through PayPal? Blame the IPN.

It’s far from instant.


#224

haha, thanks. just checked and my first order was in 2010. feeling old now. :hushed:

maybe my comment above came across a bit harsh. I don’t dislike the cloud panel, I think it’s also a very good fit for those things and what one can and should do with it :wink:

just would not want to need to adopt to something new for the dedicated servers after a hard cut. the robot is unique and holds a lot of stuff in a quite logic/intuitive way (at least in my opinion).
it slowly grew to what it became today in an unobstrusive way and I guess that’s the best thing that could happen.


#225

I agree, although I would appreciate an update on the Serverbidding page to include the CPU benchmark filter that you can find on server auction page outside the Robot.


#226

What I would like on the serverbidding page is the ability to filter by total storage capacity as an option compared to the per drive capacity.


#227

just a quick follow-up: got my invoice and it shows just the 10€ for each add-on SSD as expected. no setup fees or hidden costs :wink:

thanks again to hetzner for this cheap and easy addons, adds a lot of value to the auction boxes.


#228

Hey guys,
In case you missed the news, we’re running a no-setup sale right now oun our GPU server:

#229

As already reported over on LET, it seems that Hetzner dedicated servers now have unmetered 1 Gbps traffic!

All dedicated servers have a dedicated 1 Gbit uplink.

All dedicated servers have unlimited traffic.

This is pretty cool. And is the next step for Hetzner’s plan to achieve world domination (come to the US pleeeeeease)


#230

Sploosh.


#231

immediately begins torrenting all of the isos


#232

Hetzner cloud servers are amazing, running a few (too many) now :slight_smile: But i do got a wishlist:

  • private networking would be awesome (and then true, not the kind where its still shared between all customers)
  • additional storage. That is really gone be useful. I don’t need more cores, just more storage :slight_smile:

But keep up the good work! those prices are unbeatable.


#233

I’ve logged in to the Hetzner cloud panel and… surprise!

Final pricing looks to be 0.4€ / 10GB (VAT excl.)

EDIT:
Some fio benchs (I guess the infra is still pretty idle… but hey!):

#234

Thanks @sshd, you beat me to posting the good news! :grinning: --Katie, Marketing


#235

Aw hellll yeeeeeaahhhhh


#236

Hetzner is my home for servers in Europe, my experience with them is always incredible. Many professionals and reliable. I have my cloud since launch, it is powerful, cheap and stable.


#237

@EHRA Thanks for the feedback! We love hearing back from our customers! --Katie


#238

Hetzner released a new Storage Box:


That’s a crazy price for a 40TB server.


#239

Damn! As usual, the setup fee is a bit of a bullet to bite, but it still works out at an incredible value.


#240

I wonder if the setup fee is to truly to recover a cost or work slike a triage for clients worthiness.
