Heard about them on a reddit post. Has anyone tried? They seem to be quite affordable.

I'm testing one out right now. Paris, "START1-L".

Billing is by the hour so not much to lose. So far, so good.

How do they charge? Are only the hours of streaming counted towards billing? Also, I see that the dedicated server is about the same price as START1-L. Is there any specific reason you chose the Cloud Server? I don't even know the difference between the Cloud Server and Dedicated Server.

Thx,

No anytime the server is alive, even in a suspended state.

And... you're right those baremetal servers look to be a great deal, I just didn't see the prices.

Edit: well they do say "baremetal", but not "dedicated". Is it possible they aren't "dedicated"??

It is dedicated :) I've been running on the baremetal for like 6 months now, and I would say that everything is fine. The only thing is that the SSD seems to backlog sometimes.

How is the network speed. Do you think I can use it to download the NZBs, upload to Gdrive, and stream plex at the same time? I am thinking of subscribing the lowest VPS package with about 200 GB SSD upgrade.

It can be made to work apparently but I guess support is going to be limited if you think you might need it.
