    Hey Guys,

    As the title suggests, they are not selling anymore servers for the time being.

    I plan to get hosting from them in a couple of months, but can't now, so...

    What hosting should I go with that is similar to OVH?

    Here is some links for information about them not selling etc.:

    http://www.ovh.com/us/dedicated-servers/ - Notice the "SOLD OUT" on the right.
     
  2. I have all my servers with OVH, but Hetzner (http://www.hetzner.de/en/) has similar prices and support too.
    The only thing I don't like about them is their Setup Fee.

    Yeah. Its damn bad. Personally, i think OVH will lose a lot of business.

    Ask them how long they are "sold out" for?
     
  6. Who knows, it might be a week. I hope.

    Maybe they should just keep to the yearly releases? :p
    We moved recently because one of our SSD's began to fail (we where silly and didnt set it up in soft raid :p) also they offered the same server with better SSD's for the same price so it just seemed the best thing to do in the eyes of the customer (us) it also gave us the opportunity to setup raid.

    I need a test server to test a major update to our gateway (pfsense), looked on OVH and was like ok there must be something wrong. Looked on the forum and was like ffs haha. Just my luck! Just hoping they dont start charging for a setup fee.
     
  10. One word. Fuck. Does this mean the servers that I pay monthly for will be gone? Or do I get to keep them as long as we pay.

    I believe any existing servers will not be removed.

    Did you read the thread I posted? Its only stating they are stopping taking orders while they review how they deal with the selling of servers.
     
  13. You can still order. But only through asking support.
    There was a thread on forum.ovh.com about it that i read while at school. They basically have less than 10,000 servers in stock everywhere and want to stock up and get backlogs complete before restarting to sell. They're also reconsidering prices. Could mean more expensive servers. I hope not.

    @Suicidal_Tissue, i dunno, if i just have to pay £5/month more to buy them their coffee then i am fine with that.

  15. I personally will be moving away from OVH to DataShack. I've had great success with them before, so time to try again!

  16. Is ovh pretty good? They have an i3 there for $39 a month which is pretty darn cheap! I am renting a 2 cpu dual core Xeon 2260 2.6 ghz for the same price over at WholesaleInternet. Should I switch to that i3 3.6 ghz dedicated at ovh?
