Heckrath - €2.99 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Germany

Heckrath Our reader Marcel emailed me about a Germany hosting provider he uses for his production servers — Heckrath.net. The site is pretty much all in German, and here is their VPS page. For €2.99/month (~USD$3.85) you can get the following VPS

  • 128MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/custom panel

Their website traces to Hetzner DC in Germany. They also provide 2 backups slots, which enables you to take snapshot of your VPS and restore back to that state later.

    Might give these guys a go in the next week or so. I’ve been looking for a EU-based vps where IRC isn’t explicitly banned. These guys block port 6667 but don’t say you can’t use IRC.

    @ LEA – the wording on the website seems to suggest that the 2.99 euros/month package comes with no backup slots, unless I’m misreading something.

    FYI (a bit translation ;):
    Contact info@heckrath.net to get a one week trial of any Basic, Standard, Advanced VPS.
    Backups / Snapshots slots is 2 for Basic and Standard, 4 for the Advanced.

    “Datentransfer” is included traffic
    “Zusätzlicher Datentransfer je GB” is additional traffic per GB
    They are stressing that they are a “Kleinunternehmer” (very small company) and are therefor exempt from VAT paperwork stuff.

    They offering a Rescue System for the VPS which boots a Debian 5 Minimalsystem and mounts the VPS / as /mnt/data.
    This is something I know from Hetzner dedi offerings.

    Anyhow, I’m not connected to Heckrath, just happen to hunt for VPSs and speak german ;)

    Hrm, just checked the ordering process … they only offer automatic debit transfer (bank collection?), prepai (via wire transfer I presume) and per Invoice (post-paid).

    Looks like they are not (yet?) ready for an international LEB crowd ;).
