Thanks.

When will the broker site be ready for UK customers?

In order to use the broker site are we only required to hold a company registration number - or will there be additional checks?

Hi SOphie, I haven't placed an order, though it's not through lack of trying! I guess I'll have to wait a bit more. Kinda annoying as a new customer - therefore not adding to the whole turnover issue that this is all in place to avoid but ah well. I've waited long enough, a little longer won't hurt

I still stand by this. People like us who keep a server generally for 2 to 5 years are going to be paying 1 or 2 extra per month over the life of the server. People who change server (sometimes before they change underwear) will be penalised by (effectively) paying much more per month.

If Oles stands by his word, and introduces some form of scaling back on prices, the longer you hold a server, you and I will probably get a better deal, as the extra spent on a setup fee will effectively be returned via reduced prices later.

"everyone" objects to paying more than they did in the past. But as soon as you understand OVH could not have survived, if they continued as they were, you must understand that it is a necessary evil.

That said, I have been forced to go elsewhere by the lack of available servers, and the criminal reduction in support. What I have found elsewhere is just as good, if not better than the current offerings here (based on my requirements & usage).

Could you also please explain why the setup fees are so ridiculously high on OVH? I thought OVH was going to start reduce price on long term servers to reduce turnover?

I noticed in Infrastructure range they use E5-1620v2 with 32GB. That is a great waste of money. Why not E3 - it is much cheaper, offers similar perfomance and uses less energy.

Using E5 with less than 64 GB is really pointless.

That, could be a good idea. I mean the amount of server turnover, their going to have a lot of older stuff, already set up in racks, waiting to go. No setup fee for this stuff would entice a lot of customers, the old hardware is still damn good for most things?

Also @avizeke, seriously, if your that annoyed, just go to hetzner.

a setup fee. what a joke, that will find alot of business in europe going other places like hetzner. So what if they have a history, OVH are getting one as well. a setup fee is just a joke...

as for the early next week ! we have been waiting close to 6 weeks and then we are told at the end of the month which is sundey but now your saying early next week. just laughable. For once you over paid douche's do somthing usefull.

seperate websites..... 6 weeks no orders...... complicated vision on the new plan..... and poor poor poor instruction on telling your customers,crosses my mind paying iran 100 euros to buy me a nuke so i can screem alalalala down to the roubix data centre. i swear ovh is only ran by three people. no wait that would be an overstatement.

Why stupid? There is never enough of RAM. Of course you are not buying server with 128 GB of RAM for a small company website, but for a large websites it always help to have more - for cache, database (no filesort) and you can always have a room to spin up VM to do some testing etc.

Although I admit there was a reason for what they did, fair enough but the progressive release to certain countries? You serious? I mean if the staff want to read this and admit they made a mistake, feel free but it's odd business practice to exclude an entire country. I have wished to purchase a server for months, months and the wait just goes on, I was initially told September, October, November? Now tell me this; did you mean November 2014... because hell it feels like it.
The 'tokens' and 'reserved for UK customers'... do you realise what you're saying? There shouldn't be a token system, there shouldn't be an exclusivity and therefore if you let the whole customer base loose you're bound to make a better impression than excluding whole countries from services.
"Constantly hearing excuses usually around the translation issue - which is why the UK is always last.. On the plus side, today I learnt that the US must be mainly French speaking.."
Seems so, I can happily translate from French to English, I don't even speak Russian and yet a Russian Company told me what they wanted on each page and I wrote it in English? It's not difficult, it's actually quite saddening to hear excuses why the site was/is not open.

As usual, the website/control panel are being translated and terms and conditions are being validated by our lawyers. The delay between the FR and UK website launch is due to legal reason!
It takes a matter of days, if not hours to translate a page; in fact I translated a whole website from Russian to English in under a week, including their Terms of Service and although you may be correct, I'm doubtful (unless you can show me evidence) that it takes a matter of months for terms and conditions, website(s) to be translated especially that the US website is already in English unless you're referring to French Canadians?

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory even.

Looking at the /fr/ page and some of the competition, the only differentiator is that OVH aren't selling any servers but the competition are.
I'm waiting to see the GBP pricing, since if I buy in Euros, I have an exchange rate cost too.
It looks that close now.

I will be getting a new server while I have time to install it over Christmas but it may not be an OVH server this time.

I can understand reason 1, and thank you for considering the UK customers.
Reason 2, it does just seem like an odd thing to do. I mean it makes sense and is logical, just, realllyyyy does seem odd. Makes sense though.

In France they will also require a token to order in the first bunch of servers released. This is only used to give priority to the customers who placed an order manually because they were in a hurry, that's all.

I too would like to know why FR and now US all seem to come before UK.. The message that comes across is we're not really that interested in our UK customers, you can have the leftovers.

I too would like to know why FR and now US all seem to come before UK.. The message that comes across is we're not really that interested in our UK customers, you can have the leftovers.

As explained by Oles on twitter, ovh.com should be launched tomorrow.

ovh.co.uk will be launched a little bit later but don't worry we have already reserved some servers for UK customers. However you will need a token to be able to place an order at ovh.co.uk. Therefore, we will first contact all UK customers who placed a manual order for the last few weeks/months. These customers will be privileged and they will get a code to allow them to get an OVH server.

At some point we all have to make choice that enough is enough or just carry on dealing with the waits and randoness. When OVH made awesome grounds into cheap hosting it was amazing, however, a couple of their competitors have now joined them and are doing it in a pro way. Sure they are not offering 3 servers, but as soon as I saw that I knew it was a loss leader.... you only have to look at any one of the costs in the chain, hardware, extra staff cost, eletcric/rent and it was clear it was to get customers, not to not make cash..

The problem is, if you then can't keep up and sell to the huge demand of customers, you then lose money on the deal and lose REAL customers in the process cos of delays and missed dates, the ones spending thousands on REAL servers that have had enough. on bull**** delays and indecision. It was a brave gamble, but like many I have seen in the last few months, it was one made in a split decision without any real thought and indirectly(maybe directly) has caused no servers being sold for a good while and also losing customers that would have spent cash on servers that have a profit margin on them..

So can somebody from OVH please tell me why this bloody news wasn't/hasn't been emailed to all OVH customers or put in forums prior to this tweet and why is it a complete and utter ball ache trying to get just the littlest of information from this company?

we go beyond "Sold – Out" Wednesday afternoon, with a new site and 3 new ranges of servers from 79.99e / month.
