Anything Comparable To Kimsufi?

Jan 3, 2009

I'm wondering if here are any hosts out there that give things comparable to offers on kimsufi (more specificaly, the 19.99€ package)

I want a server that has good ram and HDD, but the bandwidth doesn't matter much. I like the fact that it is unlimited on kimsufi even though it's 100mbps not guaranteed since the speed is not much of a problem, it's just that I don't have to watch out for bandwidth quotas. (lazyness)

I see offers that are around 50$ US and they offer only 512mb of ram and 80gb HDD with less than a TB of bandwidth and that isn't enough for me since I want to upload a lot of personnal files trough FTP to backup for example.

I really want something cheap, but comparable in specs to kimsufi offers. The reason I'm looking for alternatives is because I'm having lot of trouble going trough their order process and the technicians aren't helping much.

My OVH/Kimsufi Review: After Ordering The I7 920 8XL Plan

Jan 2, 2009

Note before reading: Apologies everyone, but I can not link to URL's or use BB code as I have a post count of less than 5, when I posted this review.

Hello everyone,

A while back, I posted on here to see if anyone could offer a good deal for an i7 920, or know of a place who could. After finding no success due to the i7 being too new, I chose kimsufi, a section of OVH.

Following this you will find my lengthy review of OVH/Kimsufi, I hope members or guests of this forum find this useful in their search for the best provider or worst provider out there.

Specifications from (a section of

- Intel Core i7 920 x2 (Quad Core) 2.66GHz+



- 1GBPS Network Connection

- Unmetered Bandwidth

- FTP Backup Space

After ordering on the 24th December, knowing they only had 72h server's in stock, I couldn't wait to use the new i7 server! So, on Monday 29th I queried when the server would be ready, hoping it would be before the new year as that works out to Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, which are all business days calculating to the 72 hour setup time.
Later that day, I received the following response via email:

"I can see that the order is being processed, however with the kimsufi's orders can take up to 72 hours to be delivered (not including the bank holidays). If you can, please be patient and it should be with you before the New Year bank holiday."

So basically, they were saying it should be up by Wednesday, I thought great! However, it would seem this is not true after all. I rung up on Wednesday via phone this time, the first call at lunch time asking about my order, the guy told me he would chase it up and let me know via email. Three hours later, nothing. So I rung back again and it was the same guy I spoke to earlier, he said he had no response on the enquiries he was making and would get onto the matter now. About 20 minutes later he rung me back to explain that the order appears to have been stuck in processing and would not get processed till Monday at the earliest, of next week. A moment later, possibly after I wasn't too pleased, he told me to hold the line, then a moment later told me Friday would be the earliest, of this week. After phoning back later and talking to option 2, rather than option 1, I spoke to someone called Sophie. We had quite a lengthy conversation, but in the end it resulted in the situation being resolved on Friday, by which she would contact me regarding the situation.

On Friday morning I received a phone call from Sophie stating the distribution I had chosen during the ordering process is encountering problems and would be delayed until Monday (VMWare Server), so I chose to have CentOS 5.0 64-bit without VMWare Server instead. She told me this would be done within an hour and I would receive login details, in the meantime she would keep an eye on the progress every so often. Almost 3 hours go by and nothing has happened. I then emailed customerservices to try and get in contact with her via email, but after two emails within a span of roughly two hours, I had no response. I then got a colleague to phone them this time, as I had given up with this fight for a server order, and after talking to Sophie, she told them she would ring my mobile phone shortly to let me know what has happened. Another hour goes by, no phone call or email from OVH or Sophie herself. During the span of that afternoon I had several colleagues hassle OVH regarding my order, to no success.

As of now, it would seem my server hostname pings and responds to SSH, where it did not a while ago (as if it wasn't made yet), but unfortunately some wise person hasn't bothered to send out the login information to me, and change the pending state on my account on OVH to an active state. After phoning the french phone number which is available till 11pm, they told me they could not resolve this issue and therefore I must contact their commercial support number at 9am tomorrow morning. I have high doubts that they will get this resolved tomorrow after all the running around I have had to do and have been given by OVH support.

To say the least I am not amused by the disgusting order process. I have never encountered anything so shoddily put together in my entire life. The worst part of it is, by Wednesday 23:58 they will have technically exceed the 72h setup time which the site stated when I ordered on the 24th, as 72h is 3 business days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday), and no compensation has been offered other than a simple apology and a 'happy new year', I'll give them a happy new year for sure...

Due to this experience, I would NOT recommend to anyone who is looking for dedicated servers to order from OVH/Kimsufi unless you are willing to put up with a possibly bad ordering process as I did, or worse, having to chase up support several times on this matter.

Maybe commercial support will fix the problems tomorrow, but this is my review of OVH/Kimsufi to the date I posted this.

Speed- At FDC ( Speed Tests )

Sep 14, 2007

I am having some serious speed issues with my 1Gbit server at FDC. After opening a ticket, they've simply dismissed it as a server configuration problem. However I am convinced it isn't because certain ISP's (usually universities) get good speeds, usually 700kb/sec but the vast majority of my users get between 20-50 kb/sec and it's causing a lot of complaints.

Furthermore I have other servers with FDC which are 100mbit which perform better than my 1 Gbit one. There are no server bottlenecks (CPU/RAM/HDD), since I've closely monitored them (PRTG) and they aren't even heavily utilised. So the problem is with the network at some point.

where abouts you are downloading from, your ISP and net connection. Wget's from servers are also welcome as are traceroutes.

May 22, 2007

After reading tons and tons of messages on these forums... I have decided to get a VPS from KnownHost or

KnownHost packages are a bit more expensive than SLHost (prepaying 6 months), however I am not looking to save a buck or two. I want the best speed for the money.

Can anyone tell me which of these two has the best performance (server performance and bandwidth performance) for the money?

KnownHost offers:
200GB Premium Bandwidth
256MB Guaranteed RAM Burstable to 768 MB
10 GB Disk Space
$5 - Control Panel
$402 per year with Control Panel

SLHost offers:
300 GB Bandwidth
384 Guaranteed RAM (Burstable unknown?)
20 GB Storage
4 IPs
Free Control Panel
$389.64 per year

Just trying to figure out which one would give me the best performance...

Speed Test

Apr 23, 2009

I recently setup WAMP on my dedicated, and I'm unsure if the slow download speed is from WAMP or something else I need to remove from the dedicated. Might just be the distance I am from the dedicated because it's hitting 88.74Mb/s down and 71.19Mb/s up from a local city.

It's located in Kansas city, MO.

Tcp/ip Tuning For Better Speed

Apr 11, 2008

i have this couple of windows 2003 servers, colocated in data center, i need to improve download speeds to our customers who are at least 200ms away, the end user is not using download accelarator,

is there a way that any settings to be done on server so that per thread speed can be increased, this case the server and client both have the ability to make a connection at more than a megabit speed. i did some search but all the articles point to end user and not the server saying to increase tcp window size etc.. not sure if those articles relate to server side changes.

Processor Speed

Mar 3, 2007

After reading a lot of good reviews on Softlayer around here, I was thinking about switching to them. They have some really good deals and I'm planning on getting one of their dual opterons, but I have a question about the processor speed in relation to database intense stuff (like a forum with a good number of users on at once, or a CMS).

I have the option of either going for a Dual Opteron 248 (2.2 gHz) or a 252 (2.6 gHz) which costs $50 more. My question: is the 252 really worth the extra money compared to the 248? All I have on my server is an IPB forum with 100-450+ users on at any given time, and a static site (soon to be converted to a CMS), and I'm thinking that RAM is more important than the processor for a database app like those (that, and hard drive speed). So I wanted to know if it would be better to go with the 248 and spend the money on more Ram and a SA SCSI 10k drive or two?

So if it is not a problem just post a message on this topic and I will send you a link true private message.

How I Do My VPS Speed Test

Aug 31, 2007

I noticed that lately there are tons of cheap vps offers.

Before you pay for it ahead for next 5 years, test it.

From my experience with vpses going years back i do it this way.

Install Webmin if you do not have it.

Set it for https and MCS.Linux Them, one with all graphics.

Run WHT benchmark.

If you get a score 60+ great, test several times (day, night etc.).

Login into Webmin in https mode.

Go to others and click on System and Server Status.

If you get a full update under 8 sec that is good.

Reload few times and time it again.

In my opinion you are testing connectivity as well and not
only vps itself.

Otherwise i think you will be looking for another vps soon.

Bandwidth Cost And Speed

Dec 2, 2007

My users frequently tell me that my website is slow, but it doesn't seem to be so, for me. Are there objective tools and criteria to test its speed (response time, max transfer etc)?

Also, I'm currently paying $1 for GB of transfer. How much does it usually costs?

Since my hosting company sets php_safe off, I'm considering changing it.Can you guys recommend me a hosting plan that has:

- ssh with vi etc: this is important

- A FAST server

- Norway-based (to enjoy .torrents without being bothered) or US Based (to enjoy "fair use", which seems to be exclusive to the USA)

- 1-3GB of space

- LOTS of transfer. I don't consume many gigabytes yet, but someday I will.

- Some kind of hacking protection. I'm damn scared of my website suffering a vampire attack and having to pay for the raeped bandwidth.

Why Don't Providers List RAM Speed

Mar 28, 2009

I'm curious as to why more dedicated server providers don't list RAM
speed in their server specs. To me, server performance is very important,
and the speed of the ram can certainly affect that.

It also might not be obvious to many people how to determine the speed
of the ram in your system. You can use the program lshw...
