Jilano3065743dWelp, you sold me on Hetzner! By the way, it sounds like a neat little project you're running there. Mind telling us more about it?
Condor3428443d@Jilano the projects on Hetzner are mostly to sort servers into it seems. By default there's one project, in which you can allocate server instances, load balancers, floating IP's and whatnot. I like the idea of it because while for me it's just personal edge nodes, this also means that e.g. business-related servers could have their own project for that. Apparently you can even invite team members and everything to grant access to the project's server configuration with, pretty cool!
vane862743dI have dedicated machine in Hetzner for almost 6 years. Still running, had no problems except only one free ipv4 address per server by default and you need to pay for more.
I like their server bidding service where you can buy very cheap dedicated servers.
Demolishun885543dPlease explain what you actually did to get booted. Was it emails or something else?
xewl459642dPrepare for Hetzner going down during the most random time, and seeing on the status page it's a random switch that's gone haywire.
All for Hetzner here; honestly... but: do spread the load over multiple locations/load balance :)
Also, regarding the same provider, they have a history of being abused for spam purposes. Dearly check the status for those servers/IP's :D
Condor3428442d@Demolishun honestly nothing fancy, hping3 from one of my servers to those Chinese spamhausen that keep bothering my servers all the time (as often as every minute to every few seconds) that basically created some short bursts of 1Gbps traffic. It did stall their servers, however the bursts weren't ever longer than a minute or so. I wasn't looking to take them down per se, rather to hopefully get an error message or something to pop up on their spam service and thereby say something along the lines of "don't fuck with my servers".
And then Aruba came in and reminded me of the high school days where you can be bullied all year, but retaliate once and you're the one they're pointing fingers at. So don't retaliate and just.. take it I guess?
Nanos997242dOne of the reasons I have my own physical servers.
I'm also reminded some years ago when a bunch of business folk was talking about issues with other folk causing trouble in the IT world.
They thought I was joking when I suggested they hire some mercenaries, perhaps even a frigate if your target is near enough to the shore to shell it directly..
