What about OVH?

It's prices are outstanding. Less than 80$ for a baremetal server with 500Mbp/s UNMETERED?
It has no support, ok:
  • Long wait times to fix failures
  • Manage the server or pay&trust someone to do it

How is that it's presence on adult medium-sized websites its almost zero (to my knowledge)?
What's the catch?

lol, I might be blind. Could you please give me any example? The bigger the better.

Edit: I'm talking about tube sites, heavy bandwidth usage.

I'm with them. They're excellent.

I know that avidolz.com and all their sites are also hosted there.

There are no catch. You have to do it 100% yourself, but you get specs +10x better than what you would get on most managed.

True, and if you can't manage a server yourself you can still get a server from OVH and then use some server management service like https://www.platinumservermanagement.com/. They only charge $29/month.

Thank for all the replies! This thread became pure gold.

Still, the given example of a website does not count, as it is a paysite which will not use a lot of bandwidth.
And from my own research, I could only find 1 medium-sized tube that is using OVH, the rest are mostly using CDNs for their videos bandwidth, which I dont understand since the prices per GB would throw an immense bill for a tube to deal with.

They are wholesellers. Catch is they only guarantee the network and the hardware. Everything else after that is your responsibility. You have to know your way around a server. They aren't going to hold your hand. If they can ping the machine, their job is done.

The good news is that everything is pretty much automated so there aren't the normal issues for the first few days that you have to work out when servers are manually provisioned. Often times with manually provisioned they forget to set things up completely or something isn't configured quite right.

They also have no US presence (although they are adding US data centers soon). Not having to deal with US regulatory laws probably means less overhead and thus lower costs.

I've had several servers with them. No issues. Never needed support. Fast servers and fast network. I'm currently syncing 1 TB of content to an object store and it is transferring at about 1 Gbps.

Yes, OVH servers are on a lot of blacklists. Not sure which ones but I tried to tunnel through my server and watch Netflix outside of the country and they don't allow OVH IPs.

OVH prices are cheap because

24 hours is initial response to your query
Re-furbished Hardware from Ebay
They Suspend your server anytime for proxy and spam mails.
In case of termination they don't provide your data.
