    Looks like OVH is raising prices across their product range for costs associated with Anti-DDOS Protection for both new and existing customers across their OVH, Kimsufi and SoYouStart brands. OVH Gaming servers are excluded from price increase. Original news is from OVH CEO on twitter https://twitter.com/olesovhcom/status/914820365960056833.

    Interesting to contrast with Cloudflare's announcement of free unmetered DDOS mitigation protection and outlined how they managed to do this - by removing costly scrubbing center setups https://blog.cloudflare.com/no-scrubs-architecture-unmetered-mitigation/ of which OVH seem to be investing more into ?

    To lock in old prices, pay for more months in advance before December 1st, 2017 ;)

    I don't think I'll bite at this offer yet, but what makes them "DDOS Protected" if it's just an unmanaged dedi? Do they offer their own service similar to Cloudflare? I've always been curious about this when it's been advertised.

    Not a big deal increase.
    So it's fine.

    So what is the price for OVH with 500 Mbps connection? Most of their enterprise servers come with 500 Mbps not 1Gbps unless they consider the "burst to 1 Gbps" the 1 Gbps.

    I agree with @RoldanLT paying $5 a month more for Anti-DDoS isn't unmanageable. Their servers are so cheap to being with that $5 more isn't going to break the bank (and yes I realize that Euros and not Dollars - so $5.85).

    I believe they're talking about the network physical connectivity not their guaranteed bandwidth. So a 250-500Mbps capped bandwidth is still using 1Gbps NIC. And yup still cheap for what you get after price increase :)

    I guess people are going to have to pay attention when ordering and don't order a server with a 10gb connection for vRack if they're not going to use it.

    According to the price listing in the OP 5 euros per month per server. They also raised the price of the server - my server at least.

    The SP-128 was $155.99 per month. Now it's $173.99. The price of the HD didn't change.

    Maybe they're grandfathering in people who already owned servers. I'll know as soon as I get my new invoice.

    This is a bit sneaky! The Enterprise Servers I had with OVH have been running for several years, and had 1Gbps network ports (with 500Mbps network speed). I've just looked in the control panel, and they are now showing 10Gbps ports, with 500Mbps network speed. This isn't something I asked for!

    upload_2017-11-22_13-38-40.png

    The servers only had a 1GigE port

    root@cpanel [~]# ethtool eth0 | less

    indeed sneaky or maybe overlooked updates on control panel side ? Would be nice if for 10 Euro more you could actually get a 10Gbps NIC and burst to that speed. But with existing server at 500Mbps cap on 1Gbps NIC, just :(

    Let us know what OVH says :)

    I've already migrated all my traffic away from OVH, one of the servers was cancelled today, and the remaining ones are going Friday.

    Ah yes I remember clouvider.co.uk IIRC - definitely nice hardware pricing for a UK hosting location :)
