Unhappy Server4You review, feel cheated

Ok, i ordered an server from them. The price they declare is most often 10 € or $ lower than when you buy it (you dont want to pay around $,€150 setup feee..

Then there is another cheat from Server4you. They mention prices without VAT (tax), its means You will pay even around €,$10 more.

I have been cheated by Server4You because they dont openly declare their price and i missed this small text regarding VAT.

Be carefull, You will be paying more with Server4You than they prettending.

They want to cheat You this way.

Use rather companies like http://ovh.com where You will see the price which you will pay.

They mention on the website that prices don't include VAT, this is usually due to the fact that VAT doesn't apply to all visitors (you can claim it back if you're in a country which doesn't enforce such tax). Also it looks cheaper than it is :p

Server4You isn't as bad as you say, it is just the "cheap side" of Intergenia, a fairly large datacenter/hosting company. Their servers are already incredibly cheap, most likely due to congested shared lines and oversold racks I guess.

OVH is a horrible host. Unless you're hosting your own personal porn collection you should avoid them, especially if you're going to be selling hosting/VPS service from it.

I have no experience with Server4You but again, if you deal with bottom-of-the-barrel budget hosts you're probably going to be disappointed.

That said, this situation looks like you simply didn't read. Not their fault!

The amount of servers they cram into a single rack, onto a single line is unbelievable. Not to mention their modified linux kernel gives me paranoia.

They're good for a quick cheap server with reasonable bandwidth, but for something serious check out their parent companies maybe.

Intergenia (server4you) owns plusserver.de as their more reliable counterpart.

VAT does not apply to every one. For example when we use to use them long ago we were not required to pay VAT under their reseller program. VAT only really applies to those in EU. Furthermore, Server4You stated it before you clicked the purchase and thus, they are no longer responsible.

Sorry you didn't notice however it is much like buying something from a infomercial. There is always small print. When you buy from extremely low budget hosts they too also have small print often times. It is important before buying anything to thoroughly read AUP, TOS, Privacy Policy and anything else that comes with the service. Most of these budget hosts make their money on Addons, so they pay VAT so you must pay VAT on your purchase with them.

Also, Server4you and Plusserver are both owned by Serverloft.

@snakeair
I use OVH (Have 3 dedicated servers with them ) as it doesn't have VAT if you are from the US and the prices are just amazing, you can't really find them any other place.
They have ok hardware, but their internet speed is just amazing.
I do suggest OVH to a lot of my friends but then again they have 0 tolerance for ABUSE.

Hrtznet is just like OVH but the only good thing about them is that they don't instantly flip out if someone abused the ip.
(I had 1 dedi with hertznet, but left it as no one did buy much VPS from DE)
