Best VPS host

Service used: VPS
The pricing for the VPS packages appears to be unbeatable. Even if you find cheaper you will not beat the kind support from Contabo.

Knowingly host scam websites

Service used: Shared
I haven contacted Contabo repeatedly about a site they are hosting that is stealing my website, identity, and is defrauding customers, and they refuse to help me, or even listen to me. They delete my facebook comments as well as ignore my tweets.
Contabo
Dear Sir,
In this case, it is required to contact us at abuse@contabo.de - posting on our Facebook page or sending us tweets is not helpful, for the simple reason that we cannot handle these complaints via Social Media.

Thank you very much for your kind understanding.

It has now been 2 days since I emailed the Contabo abuse email address you provided, with no response to the email, or to address the situation. This is on par with the lack of professionalism I've experienced thus far.

Great German Hosting since 2003

Contabo began back in 2003 under the name of Giga-International.  They started off as a small hosting company, but have really grown to be one of the larger and more respected hosting companies in Germany and all of Europe.  They expanded in 2009 with a new data center in Munich and again in 2014 they launched a second data center, this time in Nuremberg.

The company started out and continues to operate with the goal of always putting customers first.  They would rather have thousands of happy customers that stay with them for years than constnatly be cycling through customers who come and go on a regular basis.  Overall this company is quite good and offers a variety of very attractive hosting options.

Hosting Appears Quite Stable

This company is built with reliability in mind. They have quality hosting servers, great data centers, solid state drives and much more.  They don't seem to have an uptime guarantee, which is unfortunate, but I didn't find anyone complaining about downtime so that gives a good indication that the quality is high.

Lots to Choose From

There are a lot of hosting options to choose from when you choose to host with this company.  They have shared hosting, VPS solutions, game servers, full dedicated servers, colocation options and more.  Within each category of hosting they also offer a large number of different packages so you can be sure you're getting the power and other features you need at a price you can afford.

The shared hosting has generous amounts of disk space even at the lowest levels and the bandwidth is always unlimited.  They also include a free domain name with the purchase of a hosting package (two domain names if you get an upper level package). Move up to the VPS packages and you'll see that you get some very nice specs for very reasonable prices.  In fact, many people will want to consider a VPS over a shared just because the price is so nice.

Dedicated servers are reasonably priced.  They don't seem to have any of the very high end options, but for most people that won't be a problem.  You can also get the gaming servers for any game you are interested in.  This is a great way to host a clan server or anythign else you are interested in.

24/7 Tech Support

The tech support teams are based in Germany and they do a great job at helping address issues quickly.  They monitor the hardware and network connections so they can pinpoint issues before they actually cause outages and they are very responsive to user reports of problems.  They don't have too much for online documentation so you will rely on them to assist with trouble.

Pricing

Low Prices at All Levels

The prices at all the levels are fairly low.  This seems to be a combination of generally wanting to keep the prices reasonable and the fact that they don't have the high end options available.  While this may sound like a bad thing at first, but really most people don't need the high end servers.  Keeping the server and package specs in the mid-range allows them to meet the needs of the vast majority of users while also keeping their prices low.

Designed for Users

This company clearly puts their users first.  The website is very clean and easy to use, which makes it simple for people of any skill level.  They have the popular cPanel available for easier hosting and generally seem to put a focus on helping their users.  Getting in touch with sales or support is also very simple.

Summary

Great German Hosting

If you are looking for hosting in Germany, you have come to the right place.  They can meet the needs of just about anyone no matter what type of hosting they need.  The company has years of experience and throughout that time they have been dedicated to helping their users get the website hosting they need.

Pros:

  • Reasonable Prices
  • Quality Hardware
  • Customer Friendly

Cons:

  • No Uptime Guarantee
  • No High End Dedicated Servers
