just be careful, I just deleted a single virtual MAC from my server, and it's taken out network connectivity to the entire server, just waiting on tech-support to intervene and fix the network issue on the router i'm guessing.

Yeah that last email confused me as to what I need to do if I just want to keep things as is.

just got an email from OVH regarding the IPV4 price changes, however the wording is a bit confusing, specifically this portion
Therefore, regardless of the expiration date of your server, IPv4 will expire on 6th December 2012. From 7th December, we will proceed with the "de-routing" of non-renewed IPv4. This means that IPv4 that will not be renewed will cease running from 7th December. You will be able to renew the 'forgotten' IPv4 until the 31st December. From the 1st January 2013, the non-renewed IPv4 will be allocated to new customers.
Does this mean regardless of when we renew our server's and we pay for a full month of IPV4, you will still expire the IPV4 addresses, and expect us to manually renew just the IP addresses on our contracts? What will be the procedure for this? How will we re-align our billing after you change things mid cycle?

OVH's DNS is less than stable from personal experience which is why I run my own. Plus if my server is down then the sites and DNS are so it becomes useless either way.

I find it disappointing that OVH has changed their mind after writing that we would get 3 free IP's.

We offer one for free as well in the OVH Manager, under Server, then Services and Secondary DNS, just add the domain name in there and make sure zone transfer to this server is enabled.

Is it still possible to divide* a RIPE block into individual IPs like before?

Good we return unused IP/blocks separately, but charging for the FREE 4 failovers? Do what?

Edit:

Just returned my 2 new blocks If I'd known I'd get charged, I wouldn't have ordered..... Oh well.

It's a fair price, as long as it stays at that.

Mind you hopefully we will have all our servers behind firewall / vrack soon anyway so won't need tonnes of public ips.

Got this today
Dear Customer,

As announced a month ago on mailing lists and on our forum (http://forum.ovh.co.uk/showthread.php?t=6276), we have decided to change the invoicing of IPv4 and RIPE IP Blocks, following the
low number of IPv4 addresses still available.

From 6th December 2012, additional IPv4 addresses will be charged at the rate of GBP 0.90 excl.VAT per month.

An additional IPv4 is an IP that is not the primary IP of the server, including:

- The IP FailOver
- The IP part of a RIPE Block

In return, the RIPE Block set up fees disappear.

Today you currently have the following list of IP FailOver(s) and/or
RIPE Blocks attached to your customer account XXXXXXX-OVH:

XXXXXXXX.ovh.net


If you do not want to be charged for an IP from 6th December, you can return it today from your manager by following link:

https://www.ovh.co.uk/managerv3/

You can also return a RIPE block.

True as it is I have moved this between several OVH servers but it's still one of my 3 failover IP's.

Please advise...

Dear OVH,

What will become of our current RIPE Blocks?Will they say and we'll be charged accordingly?

Furthermore, Can we make blocks of 4 and 8 like we used to?

Thank you,
SeedHost

We will therefore modify some options
for dedicated servers for a softer landing:

- The main IP of the server, VPS and VKS is not charged

- 3 IP included are not charged

- the use of professional option is kept at 15/month, 50 for HG

- The IPs failover are 1/month
Today you currently have the following list of IP FailOver(s) and/or
RIPE Blocks attached to your customer account ******-OVH:

ns202921.ovh.net

Yep v6 only will very soon become reality for VPS, then dedicated.

Anyone know why the split to failover button isn't working for my RIPE block? i have sent a ticket..

Suggestion: Can we have IPv6-only options? And of course, I mean that it should also be a bit more lucrative to choose an IPv6-only server opposed to one that comes with both

Reasoning: In a number of instances, I do not have the need for IPv4 connectivity - IPv6 is sufficient. Those would be "wasting" an IPv4 address for no reason.

yes, that's the case. After 3 free IPs (for pro servers), You gotta get the professional use for more IPs.

For kimsufi servers, you always pay 1 per IP per month, up to a max of 32 IPs (the price is the same that will be applied to the 2013 range, by the way)

Running VPS's on Kimsufi's is ok if only you want 30 (33) per server - i.e can only have 30 ipv4 ip's.... Which I assume you could push more than 30 (33) VPS's on the higher spec (assuming you use ipv6), although I could be talking bollox?

Shame that the 'pro' option has gone from Kimsufi's.

oops .. there was an error that crept into
the announcement. there is no change in
PROFESSIONAL use.
It's 15/month except for HG, which is 50/month.

Really sorry for the mistake, which is that Pro use
stays as it's been so far.

Hello,
As you know, there is more at RIPE IPv4. Specifically: there is more free IPv4. Opposite our competitors, who have chosen to charge for IPv4 for some time now, we have continued to provide the IP free until the last moment. The time now is (c). Well, it has now come to the end of the skein of wool IPv4 free. And we must begin a new period where IPv4 are paying. The cost to IPv4 will allow us to purchase new blocks of IPv4 and offer you as much as ever you need for your projects. seen So the redemption price IPv4 blocks on the market, we decided to set the price at 1E/mois/IPv4 so we align our competitors. modulate We'll just options to dedicated servers that landing gently - the IP server, VPS, VKS is not charged - IP 3 are not charged included - professional use 0e/mois passes - the IP failover are 1E/mois - failover IP blocks are 1E/mois/IP with the minimum size of a block / 28 (16IP). whether you have a / 24 and you want to keep one IP (the worst case), you can split the / 24 in that it takes to recover your final IP in a / 28. become independent blocks of servers. - KVM is 0E/mois (if available EG / MG / HG) - Baie Virtual 0E/mois/serveur and it remains more than 30E/mois VLAN for all servers - NAS-HA is directly available These changes will be implemented in a few days, with the range in 2013.

Hello,

As you know, there is no more RIPE IPv4.

More precisely, there is no more free IPv4. In contrast to our competitors who have chosen to charge IPv4 for some time now, we
have continued to provide them free until the last moment. That moment is here.

Therefore, we come to the end of free IPv4. And must begin a new period where IPv4 are charged for.

The cost associated with IPv4 will allow us to buy new IPv4 blocks and offer you always as much as you need for your projects.

And therefore, once we've checked the price of IPv4 blocks in the market, we decided to set the price at 0.90/month/IPv4 and thus, align ourselves with our competitors.

- The IP of the server, VPS and VKS is not charged

- The IPs failover are 0.90/month

- IP failover blocks are 0.90/month/IP. If you have a /24 and you want to keep 1 IP (the worst case scenario), you can divide the /24 block as much as you want to finally end up with your IP in a /28 block. Blocks become independent of the servers.

- KVM is 0/month (if available EG/MG/HG)

- vRack 0/month/server and for vLan, it remains 26.99/month for all servers

- NAS-HA is directly available

These changes will be implemented in few days, with the range in 2013.

Regards,

Octave
