German 1&1-hosting user experience?

Digital ocean has servers in Frankfurt, but I don’t know about a data processing agreement.

I was reading this article from Amazon AWS where they said:

AWS welcomes the GDPR. It protects European citizens’ fundamental right to privacy and the protection of personal data. It introduces robust requirements that will raise the bar for data protection, security, and compliance and will push the industry to implement stringent controls. We can confirm that all AWS services will comply with the GDPR when it becomes enforceable on May 25, 2018.

And they have 3 servers in Frankfurt Global Infrastructure


Aha. And here Digital Ocean says:


So even Hetzner supports GDPR…now you can choose your hosting @crazyhorse :wink:


Germany and especially Frankfurt is a very popular data center location. I run mine on UpCloud Frankfurt.

Lots of options to choose from:

Just to clarify: Providers have to declare conformity with the CISPE code of conduct for each service separately. The official list is here:

Wait, the quote you are referring to is from Digital Ocean. I suppose we can expect that Hetzner will be CISPE compliant since Hetzner CEO sits on the CISPE board of directors but none of their services is officially registered yet on the list above. (And neither is DO, btw)


You are right, I miss the first line on that post.

Hey, thank you all, you are fantastic! :sunglasses:

@pfaffman, I will go with digital ocean then, since I already found people who can set it up for me and help me with technical questions, since I have no software skills.
