    Does anyone experience using Hetzner dedicated server running SEO Tools?
    Do they allow this? How about the performance?
    Sure, proxies will be used instead of server IP.

    I had dedi box with them for almost 2 yrs. SEO is one such item that they are little unsure about. I found them to be little brash / uncouth when customer needed help or guidance.

    If you go ahead with planned buy from them - try to avoid server auctions. here they have those servers that have some ongoing issues, which they dont talk about. After I bought one such server, I realized, server misbehaved from day 1. On complaining to the customer care - they simply shifted entire blame on me / new installation. It was only when I pointed out that I have not installed any s/w yet, its the OS only installations that they accepted problems at their side.

    But their accepting issues, was not before they had put my server offline for almost 3-4 days. After I escalated issues and threatened to withdraw, only then they looked into h/w issues.

    Overall, I had a very hard time with them, My server was kept offline for 2-3 months due to repeated disruptions. I had paid upfront for the period, I suggest you to try other providers, because Hetzner have a very strict policy regarding what you can do and what you cannot do with their servers.

    Regards,
    Pk.

    Thanks for your input. They're having better deal in terms of Spec and price. But, I guess you're right about the limitation of how I could use their dedicated box for IM like us.

    If they catch you using SEO tools on their server, your account will be permanently suspended. It has happen to me 1 years ago using Gscraper.

    Keep away from them. They give you totally unmanaged servers and they mean it literally when they say so. If you happen to open a support ticket, they will stop short of abusing you. I had a torrid time when i asked the sales guy some questions about specs of the hardware and he literally said this is what we have and buy if you want. i was like **ck. I believe they are just few guys who deal in volume rather than retention of customers.

    If you keep your server safe and secure and know what you are doing (they are unmanaged), there should not be any problem.
    But yes, if they receive a abuse message, they will ban you most likely (so don't get caught).

    this is not to be the case in my situation

    i've been with them for 1 year now, using it as a seedbox server, bought from auction.
    Only 1 time their server have problem with 1 hdd disk, they replaced it immediately (lost my data though).
    Yes it's the unmanaged server, they will not respond or help you if you ran into software problem, you have to either fix by yourself or reinstall the OS.

    There is 1 time I received the abused message that 1 of my torrents reported as copyright. They sent me a message tell me to delete it, I deleted it and nothing bad happen.
    I install a virtual machine in it to use the windows server to able to use some windows tools like GSA,... with private proxies. I dont have any problem with that and didn't receive any mail regard that. I think to keep safe you must using private proxies.

    That does not help in some cases, for example if you will run some proxy checker then again you will have opened lots of connections and they will ban you. Anyway if you still want to try them then make sure you backup everything everyday, because you can not be sure that one day will have no access to your files. :)

    Good luck

    I don't understand why people bother with other companies when you can get a dedicated server on OVH parteners cheaper but with good performance.
    soyoustart.com/ie/essential-servers/
    or
    kimsufi.com/en/

    Yea i'd recommend OVH over Hetzner as well. Both have not good support but i think Hetzner is even worse. OVH prices are better, no bandwidth limit (unlike Hetzner). I've had servers with OVH (kimsufi and soyoustart) for about 2 years now, including a seedbox. No problems so far.

    Hetzner is good, but what concerns SEO tools, if it's just scraper or poster or something like that, you are good to go. But any kind of spam of course will not be tolerated. Use Greencloud, they are good and allow SEO.
