Just moved this server from Contabo to Hetzner.
I've been having quite some technical problems lately (which might have been my fault), but this time it felt particularly bad:
- Rebooting the instance from the UI didn't fix the problem
- I couldn't connect to the machine via SSH or VNC
- The "rescue" option didn't work (I still couldn't connect to the machine with the rescue image running)
I contacted support which, to their credit, responded in a timely manner, and apparently they just rebooted the machine and things just stated working.
So, overall I think their offer might be pretty good if you don't need uptime guarantees (e.g. if you just want to host a minecraft server or something), but I'm not sure if I can keep trusting it to host this blog.
Either way, I'm now on a smaller instance (since Hetzner is a bit more expensive), so maybe things will blow up... Hopefully not
