Cool hosting
Bakk Bence,
9.2
This is the cheapest hosting I ever seen, I got some problems with it but it got solved quickly thanks to the support. I upgraded my VPS recently, and they offered an option that I can keep all my data, the update was pretty ... More quick. Their offers are so cool, I can recommend this hosting to everyone. Less

Servicio Pésimo
David Naranjo,
3.6
El 14 de julio contraté un VPS XXL, después de hacer la migración de todas las cuentas al VPS, cambiar licencias etc, dos días después, el servidor se cayó y estuve sin servicio más de 3 horas sin explicación alguna.
En cuan... More to el servidor levantó, volví a sacar todas mis cuentas del VPS y solicité la devolución de mi dinero que acorde a la política de devolución de ellos: https://contabo.com/en/legal/right-of-withdrawal/ la puedo solicitar por cualquier motivo.
Desde que solicité la devolución, no he recibido respuesta por parte de ellos ni devolución alguna, son unos estafadores que no cumplen con lo que dicen y no los recomiendo a nadie.

Cancelled for Complaining
Aaron Crow,
5.6
Long story short. I spun up a few VMs in an attempt to get sequential IP addresses. The next day I found they limited my account to only allow 1 IP address per VM and didn't tell me why. I tried contacting support, billing... More and then sales but nobody could tell me why I was on a "limited" account. They insisted that I provide my drivers license before they would speak to me. I don't give out my DL to anyone especially when I did nothing wrong.
I then complained on another website and they asked me to contact them directly. Then they went silent, so when I complained again they sent me a message stating I had violated their acceptable use policy and then terminated my account. Their policy is vague and can be used to terminate anyone for any reason.
I still have no idea what my original "infraction" was and was told by several employees in my phone calls I had done nothing wrong. It's my person opinion I am being punished because I complained publicly.
I was treated unfairly throughout this entire process and YES I will go somewhere else. But, not before I let everyone know how I was treated.
I have given support 1 star for their unwillingness to communicate and reliability 1 star because it took ME making phone calls and tracking down what was happening when they limited my account. They didn't other sending me the email to let me know there was an issue until AFTER I complained online.
