so we are going into 'my dad is bigger than yours' and 'did you spill my drink ?' now then.

danielmeah72 clearly believes he is brighter and more experienced than everyone else on here. he doesn't know if he is as he doesn't know the background of everyone else on here.

the point is that everyone will make their own choice and have their own opinions on what is best. suggesting that those that don't agree with you are either stupid or unknowledgable says a lot about yourself. :)
" have a host in France which costs me £10 a month "

Let me guess online.net Dedibox sc gen 2

this is only single core.. (ovh offer one many times better for £5 per month) personally i have had that OVH Intel Atom for over a year

ovh used to be one of the best hosting companies in the world but as with any company, they got greedy and put prices up tenfold. people have left them and have moved to better companies with better support as ovh only did email support with their cheapest package.

Sorry. It's a cold vote from me because ovh is a company with a reputation for greed and lack of support. Just look at their forums. How do I know ? I used to be a customer that's how I know.

£30 for a decent server, cheap domains. £2 vps, what else can you expect? and if you want support go and pay 10 times more and get ripped off with a uk host. their forums are mostly full of dumb people who know nothing about what they purchased. some of the threads are really stupid (just read some of them)

now how is the comment about stupid people relevant ? I'm sure there will be a lot of stupid people (and possibly some clever ones too) on the bus passing your nearest post office soon but it's not relevant either.

the issue is that you posted this as you think it's a good deal. it seems other people don't.

you referred to the forum full of topics. i simply gave you a reply. the basics are, buy a server from OVH = unmanaged

unmanaged = no support (this should really be common sense with anyone with half a brain really)
managed= stupidly expensive pricing with support for those who are clueless

Odd considering i have been doing web work for years now. I know all about domains, dns, etc etc etc. OVH are a rip off now. I have a host in France which costs me £10 a month for un metered everything. And i get 500gb space to work with. More than enough space for most i would say. Oh. And it's a totally dedi box so no sharing. Now tell us all that OVH are offering tremendous prices. They are not. Avoid OVH at all costs. They took three/four months to honour peoples cheap boxes when they were selling them.

good deal for people wanting to start to learn web design without the initial expense, students wanting their own project page, wedding sites or short term page.

I would recommend developing a new website on your own machine first. you don't need it to be hosted (made available online) until it is ready for general use. That is free for as long as you like and then get a domain and host once it is ready for the big bad world. you can write HTML and develop an SQL database on your own machine.

I think that best HTML editor is arachnophilia download free on
http://www.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/index.php#Documentation_and_Download
Download MySQL which is free for a database. http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/installer/
Scripting can be done using PHP and downloaded free here http://windows.php.net/download/
i bet half the people who voted "cold" don't even know what a domain name is, clueless people.

What are Joomla and lamp distributions actually built on? Why is cpanel an either/or? I want a server OS and ability to add free software (eg all the above). I guess they have streamlined their builds for 10gb, but without more information it would be hard to test stuff offline before uploading.

OTOH, wouldn't the OS be a shared,read only partition and so not part of your 10GB, ie choose big here?

Joomla and LAMP probably run on Debian,

its openvz so no. and windows would not work very well with 10GB of storage

Good point about openvz - It was the higher storage ones I was looking at though.

Thanks

Yeah very annoying, would like an option to stream it really like amazon cloud.

[quote=presterjohn71]I'm probably being a half wit here but I signed up for this on my pc and downloaded the app on my Note 2 phone. I have uploaded a film as an experiment and have just gone to the phone to watch it and the only option it gives me is to download it to the phone not to actually watch it. I thought the idea was you could view things like video, music and photo
Just pray that you don't have a problem.
There is no email or phone support, you have to go through the forums (fora?) and although you can see the staff have been online they don't reply. I've been trying to sort a billing issue for a week now, and I'm VERY close to pulling the plug on them. It's a pity because it's a brilliant price… I suppose the old adage applies.

Thanks, I signed up.
This is a good deal, without doubt… just be aware that there is no email or phone support from OVH for the hubic service, which is really annoying if something goes wrong.
You have to communicate via the forum pages. They haven't responded to my issue even though they're showing as online. Grrrr etc.

Can the upload software find files on network drives or NAS boxes ?! :)

Yes, this is exactly how I have set it up, you can specifiy a location (So as long as you can access the location either via NFS or something similar then it works fine.

The only thing is you need to have the client running for it to be syncing, but it works very well as then you are synced / backed up to your home NAS system & also the cloud (Hubic)

@starfarer Yes, you are right about the normal home phone.
If you don't want your PC/Mac to be switched on all the time, then you may buy an adapter or rent one and connect it to the home broadband router. Its easy to configure, and you have a permanent solution for home phone.
With Linksys PAP2, you get option for 2 lines simultaneously.

BTW - you shouldn't be worried about the "damn loooong time", your user name itself has "far" in it ;).
Thanks ordered one. Excuse for noob questions but what does the included adapter for? is that to use the normal home phone?

BTW took me a damn loooong time to find this thread. :(

Edited By: starfarer on Mar 17, 2013 13:46
Thanks socialmammal for the info, just ordered. This deal should have got more heat.
@kknb0800, I have tried this service using SmartPhone, Using ExpressTalk client on Windows and using LinsysPAP adapter. It works with great quality in every scenario.
The only difficulty I have faced using the adapter is that it keeps ringing on the other side for few seconds even after I disconnect, and if the other party picks up, I am billed for the usage even though I had hung up. But if you are using it to make free calls within the plan, then its no worry at all.
How does the quality compare between using a smart phone or an adapter? Is it worth getting it with an adapter?

Personally I would rather pay a bit extra (around £9 for 2 years) and host the domain through namecheap.com for absolute peace of mind. Alot of these companys especially my experience with uk domain registration companys is they make you jump through so many hoops and probably charge a fee aswell when you want to transfer away it's a joke.

I reccomend paying extra and going with:

namecheap.com
dotster.com
moniker.com
Cold from me. Domains aren't free to register, and this company will seek to recoup their expenses soon. They'll do this by holding your domain to ransom. They'll probably do this without any warning, leaving you with little option other than to give up your website or email address or pay out maybe a few hundred squid. It's only £6 for a .co.uk domain, so just foot the bill it it's for something of any value to you.
Hot enough for me. thanks

ou have subscribed to the start1m offer and we would like to thank you for choosing our services.

Your hosting will be active within 24-48 hours.

If your domain name is not managed by OVH, you will need to change the DNS
of your domain from your current provider.

Here are our DNS server names:
primary server: dns13.ovh.net
secondary server: ns13.ovh.net

Once complete, you will need to wait 24-48 hours before the DNS
information is spread.



what does this mean - help please

This means if your not having your hosting with OVH then you need to change the DNS servers to your host's DNS servers
I really don't understand why people are voting this cold?!?!
