Exoscale Germany Munich Standard Instance VPS Hosting Test and Review

This time, we’re diving into the Exoscale Germany Munich Standard Instance VPS Server. It’s powered by an Intel Xeon Processor (Skylake) and boasts specs like 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 50 GB of SSD storage, a 10 Gbps internet connection, and one IPv4 address.

Our review will cover many tests: the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark for key metrics, the Global Node Test to check out the network far and wide, and the Global Ping Test to see how fast it responds.

We’re also looking at how well it handles media with the Media Unlock Test, testing connection quality with the CloudFlare Internet Test, and measuring web performance with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.

Payments

You can pay for Exoscale’s services in CHF, EUR, or USD. They accept various payment methods, including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express cards, that support 3D Secure payment verification. PayPal is also an acceptable payment method, but only in Pre-Paid Mode.

Exoscale provides two billing modes: pre-paid and post-paid. In the pre-paid mode, you add funds to your account before using the resources. If your balance reaches zero, Exoscale suspends your organization. In the post-paid mode, you can consume resources freely, and Exoscale charges your registered credit card every month for the amount you have consumed. Established companies with a proven line of credit can request access to post-paid billing with wire transfers after a manual vetting process.

Exoscale sends invoices via email. For pre-paid billing mode, they send the invoice immediately after processing the payment. For post-paid billing mode, they send invoices monthly based on your registration date. In post-paid billing with a credit card, invoices are sent 3 days before withdrawing the invoiced amount from your credit card. Please note that you need to manually pay wire invoices within 10 days after the invoice date.

You can change your billing mode. If you are in pre-paid billing mode, you can move to post-paid by credit card mode by registering a credit card. To post-pay by wire transfer, you need to open a support ticket. If you are in any post-paid billing mode (card or wire transfer), you can move to any other mode by contacting their support team.
