Im not a fan of cloud computing (I know and appreciate its benefits though) hence I would prefer to use a dedicated server .

Did you look into using the Cloud option? (see the kimsufi site). They've just released the devCloud MySQL to public beta; I think it's still free until the end of this week, then 0.01 - 0.08 per hour depending on the size. Now, I do not know if it is actually possible to access this directly from another dedicated server though (perhaps just limited to the cloud system), but you could easily get around that with one additional mC cloud then - still a cheaper option than renting a server, plus unlimited storage space...

Yup, but then again remember how they suddenly started enforcing their shaping?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if they start enforcing it, so that is why I am careful to check every time...

In "Special conditions for website hosting services on a dedicated server":

3.2 If the Customer wishes to use more than 2 dedicated servers in any month, the Contract shall be for a minimum of 12 months, and Condition 11.2 of the General Conditions shall not apply during such period.

I remember it was in there Terms and conditions. But could be it have been changed. I know a third server you needed to pay a whole year. But this was before they introduced the setup payments. So if its not there any more,
that term could have been changed.

Wasnt there some rule about if you ordered more than X (2 i think) servers per account - you had to do something special for the 3rd - like pay for a year upfront or something?

I know there was something - what was it and is it still in effect ?

Thnx guys
Dont know if this is in the new Terms and conditions. Cause now they have
setup payments. It must be here somewhere: http://www.ovh.co.uk/customerspace/termsofservice/ Check there Terms and conditions
