Dedicated server for 3 €

As far as competing with a VPS, of course it's simple that under an ideal scenario a VPS is more powerful than these dedicated servers. An E3 or E5 core is certainly going to give you more room to burst for things like a busy afternoon of traffic to your website. Everything has it's function. I wouldn't say VPS providers need to be afraid, location is a huge deal as well. Quite frankly, this is a better deal than a mediocre VPS and we all know it. That's good. Keep providers on their toes. Competition is only bad for the complacent provider who knows their product isn't anything to shake a stick at.

Now I'm just hoping this "cancelled" word on the line item for the server in the invoice is irrelevant to the order pending message at the bottom...

Same here. When the cancel word appeared on all my invoices it took the payment that was pending.

Imagine if ColoCrossing had come out with this deal...
There are people saying that OVH is the european cousin of CC.

And if CC would have that deal in Chicago our NewYork - they would sell that stuff in seconds.

There might be some CC hate out there but there are a lot of CC customers out there too (BlueVM, BuyVM, IPXcore, Liquidhost). And they seem to be happy (including me).

The longer I am thinking about this dedi the more likely I will buy one. Just think about RAW processing.

Uploading 4 GB of RAW images apply filters on them and store them as b/w, sepia and color jpegs. And do that for three different presets.

Using CPU and I/O @100% for hours - my vps providers would love me.

Or loadtesting my webapps. Or just a full remote desktop.

And that all for 63$ a year.

I will not cancel a single vps because I will never host any web/mail/irc service on it. But this a dirty cheap - not oversolled - playground.

It appears that they are limiting the 2G to EU customers only and back tracking on existing orders.  So in other words if you ordered it outside the EU, you are not getting one if it is marked cancelled.

So yeah, old customers need to get a brand new box at 3€, they wont adjust pricing nor give you any discounts or similar if you have paid for a full years worth of service at 10€. Fuck this shit.

Pretty standard for most offers I have ever seen, few will bring out a new offer then adjust all the existing ones.  Especially not a bigger operation.

To be honest you still got a good deal at €10 so stop whining.

Not just 2G, my 16G is "cancelled" in the same manner. I filed a ticket to "Commercial Advisor" about this, no response yet.

Oh, did not realise they were doing it to them all, but I suppose if it you do it for one you do it for all, not that it's an excuse though, it still sucks.

I mean they can't tell anyone they did not expect people to order enmass from every eligible location when it was first thrown out.  And if nothing else they should have had a cut of point that said x,xxx have been sold, kill it.

I had to phone both Hetzner and OVH today on other things but was funny listening to Hetzner comment on the deal, but anyway.

OVH says that all Non EU client orders are being cancelled, even if you have paid.  It will be refunded.  They are looking at about 6-7 days to clear the "mess" up and get all boxes delivered.  By the sounds of it the spec is being reduced on the ones they are building to fulfill all the orders.

Quite disappointed in that they clearly did not see this coming with a dedi priced at €3.

@W1H-Lee So what did Hetzner say? I am curious.
It was a tech, I am not going to repeat a private conversation with him on here.

I have now had all 3 delivered and they are all N2800 2x2 with new drives so cool :)

I wonder also, how many people ordered one at the new €3 price and then cancelled the one they had at €10 and now can't get one at all.

I'm more worried that they'll cancel it for me now. You don't just replace your product offering, throw out a new policy that excludes existing clients from purchasing the products they could the day before, then bail for the weekend.

Did you ask if after "the mess has been cleared", they will reopen the Kimsufi line to worldwide availability?

Not really complaining, just think it's pretty shitty to ask old customers to get in line and buy a new box when they have paid up-front for years and years of service.

So... if you buy a 700$ Television, and a few months after they reduce the price to 600$.. do you go to the store and demand the difference?
Depends if they allow that :3

I know futureshop over here will do that for the first 30 days.
