IP-Projects were founded in May 2007 and specialize in the areas of web hosting, design of Internet projects and Web Design. VPS servers will be hosted on dedicated servers with the following specifications: Core i7 – 3770 CPU, 32 GB DDR3-1333 RAM, 4x 1 TB Hardware RAID 10 HDD (Adaptec 6405E Controller) and are limited to 25 Virtual Machines per server. After you exceed your bandwidth allocation, they offer a ‘fair use policy’, and will allow you to use up to an additionial 1000GB of bandwidth. If you happen to exceed this, then there will be a problem and thus you will need to contact them and purchase additional bandwidth.

Unfortunately, for none German speakers, their website is in German and so is most of their documents; although Sign up seems to be in English, and Michael’s English is excellent. During Sign Up, you can choose to pay via either bank transfer or by using Paypal. If you don’t speak German, you can use a translation service to translate their Terms of Service or privacy policy. But in short, Adult, IRC and VPN are allowed. More information about the company can be found on this page, again in German.

Network Information

They use a datacenter in Frankfurt, Germany which is owned by Accelerated IT Services GmbH. Michael sent us a few pictures of their datacenter which can be found here and pictures of their own racks & servers can be seen here.

    512mb/vps x 25 vps/server = 12800mb/server.

    Why do you only utilize half your RAM?

    • As 512 is their smallest plan, I imagine the node is populated with other sized plans.

        Yes, that was my assumption, but I was trying to avoid leading the response if they chose to lie.

    • We don’t use full memory of the servers, because, maybe you want 1024 oder 2048 Memory, we have enough space left, that you can Upgrade the VMs. Also we don’t want, that the Hostsystems are at Limit of Ressources.

    What’s the port speed?

    November 6, 2012 @ 11:32 pm | Reply
    • The Port Speed of each Host System ist 1000 Mbit/s. The VMs are limited to 100 Mbit/s. So 10 VMs could make 100 Mbit without any connectivity Problems.

        What about the dedicated box?

        November 7, 2012 @ 8:31 pm | Reply
        • Each Dedicated Server is connected with 100 Mbit/s to Switch and from Switch with 1000 Mbit/s to Core Switch. For 69 € Setup, you can get a 1000 Mbit/s Uplink to Server if its needed.

        also a subnet like /64?

        November 7, 2012 @ 9:32 am | Reply
        • Actually, the Software Supports only Singel Adresses, at Atom Servers, we give /64, at V-Servers we give Singel IPs. If it is needed, /64 Network would be also possible at V-Servers.

    Will I able to install any OS on PRIVAT ATOM plan?

    November 7, 2012 @ 1:47 am | Reply
    • Sure, when you get the Server, we install it with Debian Squeeze 64 Bit software RAID 1 by default. If you don’t want this OS, you can choose another one by Bootmenu.

        • When you want to use Windows, you can send us an e-Mail and we change the Para VM to HVM, then you can choose Windows for a hard end installation. Just send us an mail to info@ip-projects.de that we can change the VM.

  9. So uh, let’s pretend I’m dumb

    I signed up for the dual core Atom offer, and got sent a “Registration Successful” email

    When do I have to -pay- for the server (chosen method was Paypal) and when is it going to be provisioned?

    November 10, 2012 @ 7:07 am | Reply
    • Okay server seems to be provisioned now

      Root login however, doesn’t work. Also can’t find the option to select a different operating system for installation

    Ordered an Atom server. Do you guys have FreeBSD 9, and do you offer KVM so I can install it myself?

    November 10, 2012 @ 2:17 pm | Reply

  15. FM:

    Regarding the “PRIVAT ATOM” promo price of “€22.99/month ($29.50)”:

    1. Is still valid?
    2. VAT excluded/included?


    December 21, 2012 @ 1:10 am | Reply
    • Vat is included. Its available to 01.01.2013. So if you rent from a not eu country, you can discount 19 % of Price.

      December 22, 2012 @ 6:43 pm | Reply
      • I have some questions.

        What if some countries (Mexico for me) are not listed in the order form?
        How much costs HW upgrades? Particularly the RAM upgrade, in your standard offers it says +2EUR per month.
        With this offer I get access for the web console to reinstall/reboot?

        December 22, 2012 @ 7:10 pm | Reply
      • Thanks! Sounds great.
        So, is better to wait for the 01.01 to order? It will be at the same price? $29.50 minus VAT?
