    I wish they do cheap VPS one day. Those prices are pretty nice for a belgian based box, but i’d prefer something 4€ ish on a powerful shared node.

    • Thanks for the feedback, 4 Euro in Belgium is really not possible. The traffic, location, labourer is very expensive over here.
      The servers on our offer page https://fusa.is/offer like mentioned here are really for promotion purposes. There is no profit in them with monthly payments, but for LEB we want to go the extra mile :-)

      • Why not possible? I would gladly pay 4EUR/mo even on yearly contract for 256MBish box with 10GBish of memory.

    • This order is available, we have still a large stock, ready to be delivered.

      Keep in mind our price is well below the market price of Belgium. Our server are located in Belgium not only with the IP but also in a datacenter in Belgium. In this green datacenter near Bruges: http://www.dcoostkamp.be/gallery

        • Comment: “Sorry a gameserver is a magnet to DDoS attacks, so we suggest you do this with a specialist gaming provider. Also the network for good gameservers need a complete different design, like some of the special game providers have. This is not a normal network like for webhosting. Every company has his own expertise and optimizations done for the services they run. Game servers is not for us, this way you won’t have bad game experience”

    So far so good.

    I ordered one with these 1TB SATA HDDs and it was delivered within 60 minutes. Thanks again for that !

    Time will tell how the machine performs in the next months.

    • For Belgium this is not expensive at all. Bandwidth here in Belgium is very expensive. Most providers you see like OVH that offer in Belgium (or resellers) offer a Belgium IP. We have real servers in Belgium, located in this green datacenter near Bruges: http://www.dcoostkamp.be/gallery

    I ordered a dedicated server from FUSA a few years ago now. The guy notified that he’d be going to the datacenter to setup my server that day. I got an email saying the server was setup and was provided the login information. Turned out the password I was given was wrong, so he drove back to the data center later that night to fix it for me.

    • The same price as listed here on LEB. As LEB user you can get monthly payments instead of yearly payments.

  9. Some more information that is missing in post on LEB.

    Payment information:
    CreditCard, Sofort, Paxum, Bankcontact, Belfius banking, iDeal, Bitcoins, Western Union or a Bank transfer.

    Operating system:
    CentOS pre-installed, also some Debian systems available in stock. All other operating systems must be installed by us. (best-effort / free install around 3 days)

    You can check the stock live on our site https://fusa.is/offer

    Well, wait for you to increase the bandwidth to 1TB or 2TB, with no additional cost. Otherwise I think it’s perfect.

    • Sorry, not possible. Those servers are already at cost price for us. So cheaper / more traffic is not possible in that price. Keep in mind, those servers are in Belgium, Belgium is not a LEB country :)

        • Please see on top of the LEB page: “Note that you must reply to the order email from sales@fusa.be and give them the coupon code “LEB16MONTH” to adjust your order to monthly or quarterly”

          Still servers on stock, you can order with the links listed here, or on our page https://fusa.is/offer
          After order mail us and with the code to change to 1, 3 or 6 months invoice if you want that.

    Definitely a nice location, but people should stop moaning about the low BW. Traffic isn’t very cheap in Belgium unfortunately… so seeing an LE* offer here at all is very surprising.

    • We reply to every mail we receive very fast! If you didn’t receive a reply there must be something wrong. Our average response time is 17 minutes (24/7)

      2 things you could check:
      – Did you reply to no-reply@fusa.be?
      – Check your spambox

      And indeed our system auto closes your new order once a new day starts if there was no payment.

      We have over 50 test orders a day.

    Just grabbed one. Tim is always a pleasure to do business with.

    As far as virtualization… You can have Debian 7 64 bit installed and installed Proxmox 3.1 onto it (and then upgrade to Proxmox 3.4). Combined with some NATting (iptables) you can have a few virtual guests with a single IPv4.

    Hi,

    Do you offer some kind of DDOS ?
    Or: what would happen it my site got DDOS’ed (not that I’m expecting this by the way) ?

    Thank you

    • We don’t offer DDoS protection, your IP will get a nullroute if other customers are down due to your server in an attack. If you expect an attack please go to a provider specialised in this with 100+Gbit connections

      • Joris:

        Not, not expecting any DDoS attack, but you can never fully rule this out, no ?

        January 18, 2016 @ 12:22 pm | Reply
        • But if you have attacks, you should migrate to a provider who has the network for this. In Belgium we can not offer this as the price per 100Mbit connection is 10x the price as in other countries. So large network capacity to “eat” a DDoS is not available for LEB pricing in Belgium

    I can’t say that I enjoy the ID verification.

    Some people will say, well you don’t want to be identified because you are doing illegal things.

    Well you also realize people can do illegal things after you identify them…. its not like they keep that keep that on record, if they do keep that on record, why are they keeping that on record, <_< DigitalOcean, Ramnode, Linode, etc didn't ask for my identification and I've been using them for a few years. lol
