Kimsufi appears to be a reseller, which offers hosting solutions powered by OVH. OVH is one of the world’s largest hosting companies. There is nothing wrong with going through a reseller and in some cases it can actually get you a lower price or higher specs than would otherwise be possible. Of course, it is good to know that is what you’re working with up front.
This company only offers VPS and dedicated servers for hosting, so if you’re looking for an entry level solution, you will want to move on. The options they have at these levels, however, are going to be able to meet the needs of most people. When you sign up with this company they guarantee the quality of their services and they check things like the CPU load, BIOS version, disk speed and much more to ensure you are getting the best level of service possible.
Uptime & Reliability
Hosting is Quite Reliable
While I don’t see an uptime guarantee offered, the hosting with this company does seem to be very reliable. They offer a high quality Anti-DDoS system to help keep your site protected from attacks and they also do a good job at ensuring the data center is up and using the latest technologies for stability. Since you will have solid state drives it is very unlikely that your server will go down due to drive failure. The overall quality of their hardware, however, leaves a lot to be desired. While I didn’t find people complaining about outages or downtime, many of the servers they offer aren’t really commercial grade solutions so that does add some risk of downtime.
Excellent Hosting Features
Whether you are in need of a dedicated server or a VPS solution you will be able to quickly find exactly what you need. They have everything laid out in very simple terms so you will know what you’re getting with each package. The VPS solutions all come with solid state drives, which is great. These SSDs are configured using RAID 10 technology for additional stability. They use OpenStack KVM to give you the best control over your server. You’ll also get 2-8 gigs of RAM with your VPS.
The dedicated servers are quite nice, though they certainly aren’t on the high performance end. They have six dedicated server packages to choose from, though as of writing this review only three of them are in stock and available. The highest performance server available is an Intel Core i7, which is not a bad server but most people who are looking for dedicated solutions want something higher end.
If you run into trouble the technical support team will be there to assist. They respond quickly to trouble tickets and can typically address the problems right away. They also have a Forum available to learn more about their services or get some assistance from other users. Other than the forum, however, they don’t really have any type of self-help tools or documentation.
Very Low Pricing
Kimsufi is clearly a company that is looking to provide low cost hosting solutions to their customers. The VPS packages are priced along the lines of what most people would expect to pay for shared hosting. Of course, this means that the server specs are on the low end as well (though you do get solid state drives, which is nice). The entry level VPS is just $3.49 per month and that goes up to $13.49 for the highest end package. Many people will benefit from choosing one of these low cost VPS solutions over a nice shared package.
Dedicated servers start at just $5 per month (though it is currently out of stock) for a very low end dedicated server. Their highest end option is just $28 per month. If you need the complete control over your server but you don’t require high end hardware, this is an excellent option to consider. If you need a strong dedicated server, on the other hand, this company won’t be able to meet your needs.
Easy to Use Systems
They really only have a small number of hosting options, which makes it easier to compare and see what you want. The server specs are clearly listed so you can quickly find what you need and sign up. If you need to get in touch with the sales team or technical support, that is all quite easy as well. To put it simply, this company does a good job at offering a user friendly experience to all their customers. They are clearly focused at helping people who are newer to running websites, but still need a quality experience and they do a good job at accomplishing that goal.
Take Care when Signing Up
There are a lot of things to be concerned about with this company, but as long as you take the time to really understand what you are signing up for, they may be a great option. Kimsufi seems to be targeting the small niche of users who require great control over their servers but not very powerful hosting servers. This is why they offer low cost VPS and dedicated servers. While this is not what most people will need, it is an ideal solution for some.
We bought 5 servers a month ago, they asked for ID verification which we gave them - we are still waiting for these servers. We have made multiple attempts to contact them via Tickets, they just close the tickets without any explanation or resolution - its been over a month now and we have nothing. Id highly suggest avoiding.
first kimsufi did not delivered the order (privde the server). then after order cancel they did not refund the amount of full year (192 euros). Kimsufi is just a group of scammers. I work for an organization, and its my 1 months salary they steal from me.
There Dedicated OVH Servers and VPS's are great/ I don't know what people mean about them getting attacked. Cause you manage your server. As well as the staff. My server was not responding. But that was only 1 time. And my server was just built. And now my Dedicated Server is fast now that they fixed it. And never had to report an issue ever again. There amazing and I truly would use them.
I've been using Kimsufi for projects off and on for probably 6-10 or more years now. I always have a good experience. They've improved their automation and hardware over the years. I had a server in Canada for a time, and it was still fast for me when I moved to Asia. Their French servers are also top of the line, and connection is very reliable. Their support staff has also improved (mostly the same crew they've always had, but they're learning to communicate more politely).
The only con I have against them is the setup fee. For short term projects (2-3 months), I'd love to use them more frequently than a VPS, but because of the setup fee, I have to go and use some LEB servers. I hope they'll change this sometime.
Overall, great - cheap servers and not bad hardware. (Make sure to install smartmontools to see how old the drives are - on any server you ever rent)
I OVH customer has three years, I decided to buy a KS server, the release took two days, my first support ticket took 2 days to get an answer, they confusingly shows details that do not offer on your shopping page, do not offer the service accurate and did not return my money, I tried to transfer the funds to my account OVH it was also not possible.
These scum bags are nothing but scamming hackers. I ran across a variant of their virus, dissected it, and found an IP address that leads back to this site. They do nothing but take your card numbers, and take your money... that's it.
I'm sorry for the money you lost... I know it isn't much of a comfort, but if it helps any... I have a nice little group of friends that are going to start following this trail and find out where it ends... and the misery suffered by the person(s) that did this ... will be a thousand times that of losing $60 or so... I promise you that...
They don't offer Dedicated Support or fast Responses. Although they offer tickets. They don't offer fast support. There main goal is just to keep there Hardware fast and cheap for mostly use of Students.
