Good Service!
Fritz Adler,

Contabo offers cheap and good Servers for everyone's needs! I highly recommend using contabo. I am using it now for I think a year and never had problems caused by Contabo. The Web-Gui got updated too. At my opinion they can ... More still work on some stuff to make it more clear or user friendly but the service (the server) is perfectly working and functional at any.

Contabo Ignores Copyright Infringement: flouts German Copyright Law and contradicts its own Terms and Conditions.
Michael Solomson,

Please post this for your readers. My company has submitted numerous Copyright Infringement (DMCA) reports to Contabo and have had no response and no action taken to disable access to the illegal sites. This goes against sta... More tements on this subject within their own Terms and Conditions (Clause 6 - Rights of Third Parties) as well as German Copyright law. By hosting and allowing sites to blatantly offer unauthorized and illegal access to copyrighted materials Contabo encourages other site owners to conduct similar activities unchallenged. Legitimate site owners considering or utilizing Contabo's services should take pause before supporting an organization with questionable business ethics. Less
Terrible TOS or offshore management

Terrible TOS or offshore management
August 24th, 2021
Service was OK for a few months, most of the tech support requests were answered with "Here is a page how to do it, do it yourself". Lucky I was able to make my own chang... More es.
We host reviews to businesses and people who work for government and the courts.
A dishonest party did not like that we listed their work info (which we copied from their work website)
Thus the dishonest party claimed we posted "private info of a person" to our pages (untrue, in fact this info is all over Google with Google reviews.
We sent screenshots and links to where this info was copied from
However Hostinger ignored us, did not respond, they just suspended our account, this happened several times for 2 domains, all the same complaint and issues. They claimed we violated their TOS and pointed to "terror" as what we did to this person.
We had no choice but to move our sites and domains, where "the next host had no problem". I think part of the problem is Hostinger staff have poor English ability so they did not understand what they were told and instead of trying to understand they just agreed with the dishonest party and suspended their own customers account.
We have written several emails and messages to ask for a refund for the unused services but they ignore us and come back with silly, "you are right" but we did what he had to do BS.
While they get most of their clients from low balling low prices, the custom Cpanel set up is a nightmare and used to stop you from migration away from them. Things are not in normal places and it's over complicated not better than Cpanel.
Once they know you're not happy they ignore you
Tip for consumers:
They will bill extra for each SSL, Not offer Tech support, instead send you to their document pages to figure it out on your own.
