I was just browsing around some old places and saw this new deal from server4you.de

All for € 95,00/m + € 149,00.
This seems to be a very nice offer and especially for the higher bandwidth prices in germany. Does anyone have any experience with them recently or in the past? How is there network/support (does support do English?).
Originally posted by meporter Server4You does have a US arm. They are located in the Inflow data center in St. Louis, MO (I believe). I imagine the technical support is in English. www.server4you.com.
PS: I am not affiliated with them nor do I have any experiences with them. We used to be in the same data center.
I'm aware of their US datacenter, and I'm not very impressed with their network. Has no route to several servers I've tried (they've screwed something up on their side I'll assume) and the line just drops 3-4 times a week for 10 seconds.
"kinda hard to translate everything you want to read via babelfish"
And make sure you do. I got a German friend to translate their terms and conditions for me, and even he didn't notice that if you don't notify them IN WRITING three months before the end of your contract, they'll automatically renew it for another whole year, and charge you for it. They won't notify you, or contact you in any way, just renew it, and once it's renewed, you can't cancel it until the year is up.
I'd recommend you stay away from them. If not for their sharp practice with their contract, another reason is that their support is very patchy. My server was unreachable from most of the world for almost a month because of a misconfiguration of their routers, that they never even admitted to.
