Your thoughts on Contabo VPS

What you think about Germany based VPS Contabo?

I’m just exploring good VPS solutions and their prices looks unbeatable if we consider feedback they have.

4 vCores, 8 GB RAM & 200 GB SSD for just €4.99

Do any of you used the service, if so was there big issues?

I am a Contabo customer for the last 3 years. I personally have 2 VPSs from them where I host numerous personal projects and a discourse forum and I administer another one, for the company I work at.

As of now we had almost no downtime (for 3 VPS we had 3 scheduled maintenances that required downtime in 3 years) and we never had any unscheduled issues.

Their support is almost instantaneous, although we have only needed it to use it once to ask something.

In general, they offer exactly what they advertise, and the prices are very-very-very good. I would recommend!


I’ve been using them for a few years, including for two Discourse instances, and have been pleased. They don’t spin up a VPS as quickly as DO, but that’s never been a problem for me.
