I am a great grandmother living in the UK, who is learning how to build drupal websites and learning about WHM cpanel servers. I can only speak for my own experience and I have a vps server with contabo.com in Germany. This company represents good value in servers and have exceptional support, so try to imagine the patience they need to be able to support someone like me but I am making progress thanks to their kind support and I am about to upgrade to a SSD vps and I hope in the near future I will be able to afford a dedicated server with contabo.com By the way, this is genuine nobody is paying me to say this. It is motivated solely from a deep sense of gratitude for diligent and gracious staff at contabo.com I hope all the silver surfers of the world take note, if they are looking for dependable service at affordable prices.

Overview

About Contabo

In the spring of 2003, when we set up our own hosting company which is specialized in webspace packages and dedicated servers, people from all quarters generally dismissed our idea as a hopeless venture. At that time the market was already saturated with hundreds of similar companies in Germany alone. It would apparently be impossible for us to compete with established companies that had already become global giants with thousands of servers and even more customers.

Contrary to the sceptics' and pessimists' forecasts, Contabo - which still was called Giga-International at that time - has itself steadily expanded, step by step, over the last 36 months to a size that now ranks among those large-scale companies once described as "untouchables" – thanks to our customers. Over the first 36 months our products, associated services and in-house one-to-one service generated so much publicity and interest that today thousands of customers world-wide are renting webspace and their own servers at Contabo. When we started up, we had just one single server in the data center. Today, we are already on the threshold of exceeding 5000 servers – and our business is expanding at an ever-increasing rate.

In 2009, we established a new data center with enough room for more than 4000 servers in Munich, which is our traditional place of business. This has been done in order to face the growing demand in colocation and dedicated servers and to reach an even higher quality of service. The same building also contains our office rooms which enables us to deliver excellent support, 365 days a year (also on holidays and weekends).

1. Contabo is an official "Certified Provider" – fair provider, guaranteed service!

Contabo is scrutinized for its quality and service from "webhostlist.de", one of Germany's leading testers for hosting companies. Contabo got the official title of "Certified Provider" which only the fairest and most reliable hosting providers are awarded. Webhostlist.de defines a provider that may hold this award as follows:

"No chance for black sheep! With this slogan, WebHostlist brings more light to Germany's jungle of more than 2,000 different providers. In line with our promotion "Tested Providers - Fair Providers - Guaranteed Service", certain providers have been specially highlighted in our list. These providers...

... have demonstrated that they are legitimate businesses by submitting their official registration documents (trading license, excerpt from the commercial register, etc.).
... undertake to offer you, as a visitor to the WebHostlist, the products and services shown in our online list.
... have committed themselves to transparent pricing for their products and services so that the price you see here in the WebHostlist is the price you pay.
... agree to WebHostlist providing arbitration in disputes.

What does this mean for you? It is primarily a guarantee that you have found a professional provider that gives priority to customer service and allows you to seek a solution under the auspices of WebHostlist should problems arise."

Contabo operates two own data centers for dedicated servers and colocation services. The ultra-modern "green data center“ in Munich was constructed and built by Contabo in 2009 and has enough room for 4,000 servers. The second data center in Nuremberg has been launched in 2014, and it offers space for another 10,000 dedicated servers. On both locations the office rooms are in the same building, only one level above the data floor.

Both data centers are state of the art, especially when it comes to operational safety and energy efficiency. Contabo invests large amounts in the maintenance and optimization of the entire data center infrastructure every year. This allows Contabo to offer their customers a stable and – thanks to low operational costs – economical hosting platform.

Both data centers are located in different cities being several hundred kilometers apart from each other, and both are powered by different electricity suppliers (SWM and N-Ergie). Thus, your servers can be distributed to different locations without additional costs for you. Due to this geographical redundancy your services will stay online even if it comes to the highly unlikely case that one data center will be damaged by fire, water, or any other imaginable disaster.

Please do not try them. They can shut down your server for 8 hours and request 30 EUR for unsuspend by ridiculous reasons. Also they charge 40 EUR per bank transfer although you already paid transfer fees.

We have 10+ servers at Contabo and now hardly working to migrate another DC. We will never work with them.
