  • I'd really love to, ideally I'd have servers over here since I live here, but they're just so much more expensive that really it's not feasible for me. I can recommend some decent providers in the UK that have reasonable pricing, though, PM me if you want some advice on that.
  • I noticed that OVH says [quote] 7.7 The customer acknowledges that for security reasons, some features and protocols (such as IRC or peer to peer file sharing) may be subject to Service limitations. [b]Proxy services are banned from the Service[/b] [/quote] Does this apply to you too?
  • [QUOTE=benjojo;33181329]I noticed that OVH says Does this apply to you too?[/QUOTE] From what I've seen it's loosely enforced. It very much depends, though. That part of the ToS is there because frequently proxies are left unsecured and illegal activities mentioned elsewhere in the ToS are conducted via their network. They've likely added that to clarify the situation after lots of complaints originating from users running open proxies. If you're running a proxy for legitimate reasons and it's properly secured, I don't see any issue. Indeed I've ran proxies on OVH before and not had any issues.

  • [QUOTE=FlamingSpaz;33188035]On that note, is simply ssh'ing with a tunneling port secure? (Or whatever ssh -D does)[/QUOTE] As long as your SSHD is setup securely yes (strong passwords or preferably keys, denyhosts etc).
  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;33215895]Got one 512MB US VPS available, first to email me gets it, $12.50/m.[/QUOTE] why the price increase?
  • [QUOTE=RusselG;33226342]why the price increase?[/QUOTE] My US price has always been slightly higher to reflect the higher cost.
  • Possibly ordering a new US node, anyone still need US VPS? Same pricing as before, $7.50/m for 256MB RAM, $12.50/m for 512MB.
  • [QUOTE=aerochug;33659292]Why does Known Havok keep rating you dumb?[/QUOTE] Probably because he's an alt of a permabanned user that I banned or something like that.
  • [QUOTE=SataniX;33659923]Why did you call plan #4 peta...?[/QUOTE] As in petabyte, the names are loosely based on si prefixes. Nothing at all to do with those crazy vegan folks.

  • Note to US customers: France OVH has a very bad connection to any country outside Europe. [url]http://kimsufi.co.uk[/url] [url]http://www.ovh.co.uk/dedicated_servers/index.xml[/url] @Hexxeh, I'll PM you a better alternative than OVH.

  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;33684847]It's much, much better than it used to be: [url]http://proof.ovh.net/[/url][/QUOTE] It's still pretty horrific to the US. Some of my friends on residential US connections max out at about 250kb/s from my OVH box. OVH just have really bad North American peering.
  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;33684847]It's much, much better than it used to be: [url]http://proof.ovh.net/[/url][/QUOTE] It's your call, but I'm only sharing my experience with OVH. The majority of FP is American and I think that's your target for buyers.. As this is a site about a game they'll obviously run a Source gameserver or a Minecraft gameserver and get disappointing results.

  • I'm afraid not, I don't do discounts because I sell as cheaply as possible without promotions.

  • A friend of me uses OVH as their main ISP and they have no problems connecting to US sites
  • [QUOTE=Val67;33715293]A friend of me uses OVH as their main ISP and they have no problems connecting to US sites[/QUOTE] OVH's datacenters are the ones with the crappy peering, the consumer ISP stuff might not suffer from the same issues.
  • [QUOTE=Val67;33715293]A friend of me uses OVH as their main ISP and they have no problems connecting to US sites[/QUOTE] I don't think you know what ISP means.
  • [QUOTE=Chulo Arco;33730954]I don't think you know what ISP means.[/QUOTE] OVH are a consumer ISP in France, he's correct.
