Editorial Review

This German hosting company was established in 2003 first under the name of Go-International and later, in 2013, they changed the name into Contabo. The company had a great expansion over the years. They are available with for German customers and for international ones.

Among the products provided by Contabo, we may mention:
  • Shared Hosting;
  • Dedicated Servers;
  • Virtual Private Servers;
  • Domain Registration;

Contabo provides 4 shared hosting plans all including free domains (the two entry level plans include one plan, but the other two plans include 2 and even 3). You get free website builder and the common range of professional features: PHP, phpMyAdmin and MySQL to help you control your page efficiently; popular content management systems, such as Joomla, Typo3 or WordPress; security management with DDoS protection. You can also choose the script you want from more than 300 web applications. There is no setup fee!

Dedicated servers work on both Linux and Windows operating systems. They have full root access and are supplied with the latest server hardware and powerful processors. Contabo promises three essential elements with their servers: flexibility, efficiency and server availability.

VPS hosting runs on state-of-the-art hardware and these use KVM virtualization. Customers can choose the operating system they want (Linux, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016). The server is managed with cPanel/WHM or Plesk. With one Contabo virtual private server, you get VNC access, reverse DNS, reboot web interface and DDoS protection.

Hello everyone

I suggest you do not approach this company for reasons
1 a lot of network issues of disconnections.
2 Poor support not answered and if answered only after 24 hours.
Their 3 VPS servers if problems of crashes.

What I must point out is that this is the 1st worst company in the world.

Just a disappointment

I would say the customer service is awful but they steal money which is why they ignore everyone
Customer Service is pathetic and pretty shady which may be why they ignore you but the fact is that someone took it upon themselves to create an account and they charged the account again even though they had been told the process had been done and 'dealt with' already. Thats not the real issue because when we have tried to get them to fix it, they have ignored us since. They stole money and we had to place a dispute with the bank even though it was them that made this wild mistake or I am not sure what to make of it. The fact is that they just continue to ignore us. They have NOT replied about it. Its so shady. I am asking for a reverse on something they took the liberty of fraudulently completing. No one authorized them to take t upon themselves to create an another account. Besides, they did it after it was told that it had already been dealt with. These shady people still went ahead charging the account fraudulently and not being authorized. But again, thats not the real issue. The fact that they refuse to reply about let alone do the right thing is very telling. They are shady. They steal money and I mean literally because lets be real, the person made an effort to charge the account and the card and is making zero effort to reverse it when it is the same amount of man hours and efforts. We have ecommerce stores. We know how fast or slow you can issue a refund. Remember, not only are they horrible at issuing refunds, they will also not even issue me one when they took it upon themselves to charge us. Its mind blowing how shady.

They have problems with hackers. Used to have a M VPS for some years. I used it to test and run python scripts. 99% without any internet traffic. Twice they told me that they had reports that my server attacked other sites. First time two years ago, I panicked and was trying to find what was wrong. Then they said that it's ok and that the problem ended without me doing something. Second time is now. They sent me an email saying about the attack of my server to other sites, that I should respond to. I did respond but after a couple of days they suspended my account and wanted to get paid to bring it back up. Their excuse is possibly that I did not do something immediately. Some kind of action. time is not theirs. And I know that my VPS did not cause any problems because I actually did not do something like that. I consider this extremely unprofessional. Thank god I did not use that VPS for professional reasons. I had 3 VPS servers on Time4VPS and never had any similar problems. I am moving back to them. If you are a pro you should really think twice to get a VPS from Contabo, because all is well and five star reviews...until you have a problem with them. Then they go down to one star because of the way they handle issues. Customer does not come first. Money comes first for them.
