    If you are an EU located customer, you need to pay Cross-border VAT. The biggest nonsense but welcome in the EU. To my knowledge Vultr, Digital Ocean, etc etc.
    They all count EU Cross-border VAT.

    But why should an EU citizen pay EU Cross-border VAT, if he/she do business with an American, non European company ? Like Digital Ocean etc.

    Thanks for your suggestion. As AMS-IX does have multiple datacenters for their connection services. Any specific Amsterdam datacenter in mind?

    Anyone else?
    Suggestions are always welcome

    Works more than satisfied so far.
    But of course 10 days is not really representative.

    I stopped using it. I was seeing how it was, it's on my very short list to use again.

    I overdid the backup schedule, the cost *projected* was pretty harsh. IIRC I was using a daily, weekly and monthly hold for 3 months. Essentially a bill for the backup per hour, that was the problem when comparing services... Bloody fast though :)

    I've left my account open because I might do a weekly local and hourly remote, as bandwidth is cheaper than disk ;)

    I have zero performance or network issues. I wasn't measuring steal or continuous load tests.

    1.11.#
    MariaDB 10.1.#
    0.00305 $ Backup resource (50 GB) for period of 1 hour, Per hour, Per Node.
    Then by each day held, so a 7day schedule cost (0.00305*24)*7 per day, so about $3.59 per week on a $20 per month node. I think that is how it appeared to be going from my memory.

    If it was a critical box and not a test box that cost is fine of course.

    So more than the 10% charge from linode/DO etc, but a better service, i.e. more more flexible, faster, more frequent, just a bit confusing.

    I can recommend Upcloud.
    However, it is difficult to choose with the VPS price war (Linode, Vultr) going on.
    Linode, Vultr. Have recently become much cheaper (up to 50%).
    So you have the same for much less, or 2 servers and thus HA for the same.

    About Uplcoud now.
    Accessories are apparently a major factor of their earning model.
    The pre-configured servers are priced like Digital Ocean et al.

    But if you add accessories, it will go quick.
    For example a relatively simple L3 firewall , almost 5$ extra per month
    (50 % of pre-configured server 1). 1 extra IPV4 almost 3$ extra).

    Configuring your own server $21.21, the same pre-configured server 1 is $10 (50+ % extra) 1 extra CPU almost 9 $ extra. Same goes for 1 GB extra RAM memory, almost $10 extra.

    Although I can confirm @Colin with more: more flexible, faster more frequent.

    Hi, just out of interest ( sorry for thread jacking George) . You are from the UK:
    how good is this provider:
    https:// www . clouvider.co . uk

    ?

    I've read many people praising them but saying they weren't cheap

    Cloudvider seems to be a one man show.
    Is this a serious comparison?

    Just migrated a couple of my Linode VPS over to Upcloud to see what they are like. Impressed so far.

    These were hosting my own site. I had it split over 3 VPS, but consolidated into a single one (each one was the $5 VPS from Linode).
