I’m waiting for the “win” in that statement.

@Hetzner_OL your DC edition NVME drives in the AX61-NVME (Germany), can you tell me the model/make or their IOPS, thanks.

As long as you both connect well, you still got a very nice connection.

Sorry for my ultra-slow execution had a lot of things coming together here it is I needed to do it in two parts because it looks like my fork of the masonr script is now broken for geekbench

Thanks @Poli for linking benchmark yesterday. Just grabed one with two extra disks for RAIDz-1.

Prays Hetzner provisions today!

What was the cost on that?

looks to be this one: Dedicated Root Server Hosting - Hetzner Online GmbH

€165 but thats also with UK VAT @ 20%
which works out to be roughly £146.55 inc VAT

plus a few extra IP’s say £150 p/m

For the DC NVME drives and ECC RAM, worth the little extra IMHO.

and your quite right it is, just with extra drives added.

I cannot talk about TB, but I am using a nextcloud installation on a Level 9 Webhosting. I use it for syncing my data for school and store my passwords in a plugin called keeweb. It works like a charm and I never had any issues with it.

Welcome home Lukas.

Welcome @luki9100

I recently had a baby ddos lucky but i was wondering if you guys founded any solution as ddos protection for hetzner. I founded out it’s good but you need to contact them at first and this can take way too much time sometimes which is normal too.
So i was wondering if they activate it only on a few machines to reduce the costs. So i don’t know if you guys founded something pretty “cheap” but working for Hetzner dedicated machines?

Thanks for the warm welcome :slight_smile:

It really depends on the type of the DDOS, you could try some rate limiting per IP on your server. If the Hetzner DDOS Protection is not enough, you could use an external service like Cloudflare and Sucuri, I personally never used them myself, but I know a lot of people that do.

Yeah, they replied to me with the attack was to tiny, but it was still more than 1gb/s sadly it’s not a webserver in this case but a game server and it was a flood attack so simply filling up my bandwidth. I wonder what i could do to prevent it i know they have a little firewall in their robot interface but it’s limited to 10 records …

Defending games servers can be difficult. Do you know what kind of traffic was used to flood your server?
