Hello Community, I have a Dedicated Server from Hetzner with 12 Physical Cores AMD processor, ECC Memory 64GB RAM, 4TB ENT. HDD. Earlier, I was planning to Sell VPS through it(Either Virtualizor or SolusVM or Proxmox) but as you know, They’ve recently increased price too much.
I saw IPXO by Heficed and IPv4 lease pricing were 0.84$/Month but I am not sure if Hetzner supports bring your own IP.(BTW OVH also seems good in Virtualization and IP address thing, But their Servers are way too much costly on 8 Physical cores)
I already have many Shared Hosting Servers and do not intend to build another one. Hetzner policies does not allow mining, so thats also out of the question. Thought of Game hosting but that also requires Additional IPs and You know the Price hike!
I took 3 Servers in total for Making a cloud using Openstack, instead started Email Marketing on other two because of extreme orders and this one got left out. I don’t wanna cancel a powerful server like this.
What can I do with this idle server so that it generates its own Monthly pricing at least?
OVH downside is only one: Their Support sucks… To get them on phone line, I have to wait 30min on phone. Their Ticket support responds in about 24 hours. The person “Harry” which convinced me to purchased a server also now responds late and so if anything is down, You’re own. Though they have given IPMI access, but still I had a problem.
Their Packets were dropping from OVH RBX peering to JIO INDIA, So I started a ticket, the first response was 3 days later asking screenshot and when I gave, They replied back in about 5 days and I was at that timeframe not online and didn’t bothered because they already took 8 days which is really not a time a DC provider should take.
