    A good offer, just out of my price range what with OVH being around.

      What’s your point? this is UK.

        I’m in the UK and for me I get ping times of around 1-2ms difference from the ip listed above compared with my OVH dedicated server. So they are very comparable to me. I think this is partly the point the person above was making.

          Actually the ping difference doesn’t matter, if someone wants a server in the UK rather than France they would be interested.

    It’s the UK as already mentioned, for what it is I see a decent offer. You are not just paying for the hardware faggots.

    • Hi there, we have few servers with them, bigger machines and mix of linux and windows. We have been with them 4 years. They have extremely reliable network for the price, in those 4 years total downtime caused by reasons on their side was: 20 minutes in total. There are no emails about network switches to be changed or routing problems, they just work non stop 24/7. Our main site hosted on their server has 30k+ unique visitors a day.

  6. What’s the price of extra IPs?

    • Hi there FtpIT_Radi,
      We charge an additional £0.50 pm extra IP, they are ordered through the portal after sale and are subject to RIPE justification.

  8. If I have my own IPv6 space, will you let me peer with you directly using my ASN on one of these virtual servers?

    • I am sorry to say that at the moment we could not do that Jonathan.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
