About ten days in the past, I bought a server with a month-to-month fee of 0.9 euros on a distinct segment platform, its hyperlink:
Then I take advantage of lxd to virtualize 6 small lxc containers on the server for my buddies to make use of, and they’ll use python or golang to write down scripts on them for testing.
My good friend and I’ve been utilizing it for about 10 days usually, throughout which the visitors utilization is 3.5T, and there’s no long-term excessive CPU or reminiscence utilization.
Right here comes the attention-grabbing level, my server was stopped by the admin on the tenth day with out prior discover, his purpose was that he could not deal with my visitors utilization, however his product did not present any visitors restrict earlier than I purchased. I feel it is my mistake, I default he has limitless visitors.
I despatched a ticket asking why my server was taken down and if it was doable to reactivate, and the response was “I think you’re utilizing the server illegally”
I described intimately what I used to be doing on the server, however he stated that I lied to him, I do not deserve his belief, so my service might be restricted to 10Mbps and 10GB of visitors.
Thus far I’ve remained calm, though he claimed that my truthful description was a deceive him. My good friend guessed that it was the visitors consumption attributable to his crawler’s crawling of the telegarm channel for a very long time and comparable applications.Site visitors consumption attributable to long-term and multi-threaded operation of crawling or comparable issues.
In the long run I acknowledged that I’ll now not use their service after this service interval is over.
The funniest and most annoying factor is that it stopped my server once more! ! ! Then he checked my server privately and nonetheless did not discover any violations. That is what annoys me probably the most, when did I authorize him to verify my knowledge?
Then I replied as follows
Hey Bram de Graaf,
It’s a pleasure to obtain your reply.
However I can’t perceive your accusations in opposition to me. Please forgive me for utilizing the phrase “accusation”.
lxd is a brand new expertise on Linux, it’s a container expertise. You possibly can’t discover any, I imply, any file with out opening every container.
To begin with, I didn’t authorize you to enter my system, it’s essential to perceive that that is about my privateness and even confidentiality, what proper do you need to enter and search my host like a police officer?
Secondly, I want to ask you what sort of information you are attempting to seek out. lxd doesn’t retailer the information contained in the containers immediately on the host in a 1-to-1 method.
Lastly, my visitors utilization isn’t significantly past purpose, and I do not suppose I am violating any of your TOS.
I cannot be utilizing your providers once more.
I reserve the proper to sue you.
Then not solely my server was stopped, however my account was additionally deleted, and I can not take screenshots as proof to publish right here.
This expertise made me notice how untrustworthy such an obscure service provider is, and I’ll by no means make comparable purchases once more.
Hopefully my shopping for expertise will remind some folks to not purchase gadgets that appear low cost however lower than the market value, which frequently implies unknown limitations, messy tech assist, and horrible privateness leaks.
