I just wanted an account at @Hetzner_Online but they don't accept my French ID as proof of identification and refused me as a customer. Ranted on the phone: turns out they can't tell me why, but I can send them a selfie.

Did anyone have a similarly shit experience with them?


I'm curious why they need your ID at all. They are not responsible for the data you upload, so the only thing relevant should whether you are paining.

@utzer @kirschwipfel Same. The only info I have is that they say they “have a responsibility to protect other people on the Internet”, whatever that means 🤷🏻‍♀️ twitter.com/hetzner_online/sta
