  • Virmach: 1 vCPU, 2GB RAM, 45GB SSD == $0 (non-recurring)

  • Ionswitch: 1vCPU, 1GB Ram, 10GB. $0 (probably non recurring).

    I logged a ticket last week asking if they wanted to cancel it as I've had it for longer than they said it was free for... and they deleted the ticket. Anyone know anything about Ionswitch?

  • The cheapest is a VPS 200 G8 Aktion I presume, from netcup
    I had two of these and dismissed one some weeks ago

    They are switching their ticketing system to zendesk.

    Anyhoo, I found that ionswitch's support is not up to expectations these past few months. And I do not mean they didn't answer tickets within 48 hours.

    @AK_KWH I contacted support only twice in a couple of years, the first time for billing-related stuff (VAT for intra-EU B2B) and the second time recently 'cause of a severe blip in my monitors (packets dropped at the edges for a couple of hours right after BF)
    They "guarantee an average annual availability of 99.6%" but if you need a really guaranteed SLA I'd contact them first
    They have a forum (in German) where you can have some sort of community support (in German); I haven't used it. There's a wiki (in German) too
    They ship a (quite intuitive) panel to administer your VPS where you may eventually take a snapshot of your box too (keeping one snapshot is usually free)
    You can upload your own ISO to some ftp and use it, along with the distro they offer
    They can speak English, or well, at least they try :)
    I've never observed CPU steal, not even on the non-RS line
    Generally you cannot do nested virt on their boxes unless you're ready to pay an extra. This applies to "Root Servers" too

    Have a YABS on a RS offer, online since yesteryear (320 GB SAS, 12GB RAM, 2vCPU)

    ACHTUNG

    German contractual terms apply; you can't dismiss an idling box simply by non-payment. You'll generally have to set on cancel unused boxes with at least one month in advance of the contractual period (that may or or may not be different from the billing period)

    There are various ISOs available in SolusVM. I installed OpenBSD 6.x and have been doing slow upgrades every year or so since then.

    But then I think that you quoted the specs wrong: it's a 20GB disk (not 40GB) and it costs 1.79€/m (not 1.50€/m)

    (Which is still a great deal)

    1.79€ is the price including German VAT, and I am not billed German VAT. I stated I pay 1.50 €, I pay 1.50 €. The advertised price on their German site include German VAT, I reminded that the advertised price include German VAT. It costs 1.50€ +VAT if applicable. Hopefully it's clear enough.
    If we're going full German, anyway, it has to be said it's almost 1.50417 € per month.

    I stand corrected on the disk space, the 40 TB traffic made me type "40" when detailing SSD space too and I overlooked that detail when I've been quoted again. It has been very un-German of me.

    No need to overreact :)

    The only reason that I said something was because @sonic appeared to understand your original post in the way that I did, so I just wanted to correct it for him (and perhaps for others as well), especially because netcup doesn't deduct German VAT for non-EU private customers

    Any binary package management framework, or just like it used to be back in the 2.x and 3.x days?
    (I remember upgrading when they switched to ELF binaries, that was interesting IIRC) ;)

    Pretty much stays the same. You upgrade the userland, boot into the new kernel and upgrade packages. I'm following -STABLE so the build process takes a bit of time,

    E: COFF TO ELF for me the first time was Linux 1.2.8 to 1.2.13. That was ungodly painful because there really wasn't a good way to run both formats, and shit would randomly just die because not all libraries were designed yet to be reentrant and namespace colliding when you had both COFF and ELF - I seem to remember libc5 being a bitch whore about it.

    Never did do a non-major revision ELF migration on *BSD. Biggest problem I had was needing both BSD/OS and FreeBSD hardware support for specific needs 20 some years ago so I could run Stronghold, because Apache-SSL wasn't yet legal to use in the US, and you would get screwed if they smelled SSLeay (from .au) anywhere on corporate machines.

  • In terms of "cheap" I have a ChicagoVPS I won on LET (so, free) but it's been fairly useless. The reinstall option only gives you 30 reinstalls. Each time it counts down one but doesn;t actually reinstall. When you do ticket and get it reinstalled, it's kernal panics if you try and update it, so I've not really bothered lol.

    Cheapest otherwise would be either some @mikho NAT boxes or @AnthonySmith OpenVZ offer I had, but they're nowhere near as cheap as some of the stuff posted - but possibly more usable/reliable ;)
