A former OVH employee, Giner left them in 2011 and started GinerNet (a registered company in Spain) in 2012. He became a RIPE member around that time as well. After having launched services in Alicante, he eventually had to migrate everything to Barcelona because of the number of DDoS attacks he was receiving. He later expanded to Madrid and a new Alicante location. Host nodes have Intel Xeon X5670 CPUs, Intel 520 or Crucial M550 SSD drives in a RAID configuration backed up by a battery. OVH servers are being used for backups in France or Canada, as well as for DDoS protection should you choose that option. Reviews about GinerNet have been mainly positive. Should you try them out or be a customer of them, please share your experiences with us. From my experience they are quite good!

All servers come with backups included, where there’s two snapshots from SolusVM available. Automated remote backups are included as well. Don’t see this as an excuse not to make your own backups, but rather than an insurance that GinerNet may be able to do some quick disaster recovery should that ever be necessary. PayPal, credit cards, and Transferencia are accepted payment methods. DDoS-protected IPs seem to be available but they are quite expensive. Before ordering, please read their Terms of Service.

      • No more. OVZ direct.

        That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as long as providers are transparent about this :-)

        • We have stopped doing OpenVZ inside KVM due a Proxmox bug during Snapshots that causes many lag/downtimes in the OpenVZ during the backup process. I think Proxmox has fixed this now, but now, we have changed our backup method and doing direct OVZ we get better performance that is what we need in our high density infra. Instead, we think there is also not a bad solution to setup a extra virtualization layer.

  4. Although I didn’t sign up from the beginning, I got My Box from A user who sold it to Me but I used it for some time, It’s performing awesome. I’m satisfied with the Price though My recurring Price is 9.99 Euro ! ;)

    Best of Luck, Giner :-) Keep it up !

    I’ve been with Giner on one of these (512MB) for almost a year now.
    There were a few minutes of downtime when the VM was physically hosted in Barcelona, but since the move to Alicante – not a single problem.
    I was VERY happy with the move to Alicante, for nostalgic reasons, the city was like a second home to me when I was younger.
    And now I’m even happier, because of the rock solid stability and also because of the performance.
    And Giner himself is a very friendly guy.

    • Server is installed with CentOS 7 by default, you can reinstall via SolusVM with CentOS 5/6, Ubuntu 12/14, Debian 6/7 and Suse 13.

    Decent host all round. My plan has been sold, and when I had a few issues of my own making, support was swift and solid. A great host overall IMO, and if you need BPS in Spain I’d look no further.

  9. UPDATE: The price for AntiDDoS IPs is reduced, now the cost is only 3€/month each protected IP.

    Ah, GinerNet…I heard that they put the *fun* back in computing.

    Too bad they’re such a *wee* company, at least I’ve heard they’ll be *expanding* pretty soon.
    GinerNet is good for a *slick* deal, at least, and their high-end support certainly doesn’t screw you you over!

    When it *comes* to picking the best VPS server, you can be sure you’re not getting a server that *sucks* with GinerNet.

    Giner, I was wondering if you allow automatic rDNS setting for IPv6 in SolusVM?

    ahaah they did it the second time (the first here http://lowendbox.com/blog/ginernet-openvz-and-kvm-vps-starting-at-9-99-eyear-in-alicante-barcelona-and-madrid/#comment-510400)

    Its second review about gringos reselling hosting who is learned *nix console (for containers sure)).

    All use it would seem be like a honeypot systems ( for a first reading and understanding what it is all ) – its “holy white” way i think.
    But this time through provocation and illegal actions (which seemed to be respectable hosting would not let himself (to remove the contents of the containers)) they first close the ticket (in the first case did ahah), and then remove the account, just like in the first case.
    That was the old light moves them I do not know

  18. Skype has opened its online-dependent consumer beta
    for the entire world, right after establishing it
    largely inside the United states and You.K. previous this 30 days.

    Skype for Website also now can handle Linux
    and Chromebook for immediate text messaging interaction (no video and voice however, these call for a
    connect-in installing).

    The expansion of your beta brings help for a longer set of dialects
    to assist reinforce that international usability
