    How long the provisioning?

    Your payment and order has been received and is currently being provisioned.
    
    Expected provisioning times:
    
    Webspace: 3h
    VPS & VDS: 3h
    Dedicated Server: 48h (during business days)
    
    In most cases we are able to provision your order in a much shorter time, in rare cases it may take longer.
    
    As soon as provisioning is done, you will receive an e-mail with the login credentials. No action is required on your end. It is not necessary to contact us in this regard.

    In terms of hardware they are great , in terms of Security they are 0 , no ddos protection.

    Contabo has better CPU power while Leaseweb has better network connection.

    io is similiar and limited.

    Still no test IPv6 though. But from their /32 it appears it's all the same HE.net on IPv6 as well.

  • Glad to see Contabo expanding! I hope the new Singapore and India locations do well so they can add more US locations!

    Does anyone know of a test IP or looking glass for their Singapore location?

    So they got AS141995 for the Singapore location.

    If only it weren't Telia + Hurricane Electric... This mix makes it unsuitable for serving users in Japan or South Korea, since the major ISPs there don't peer with HE/Telia locally and suffer from additional 200ms RTT. :/

  • @rm_ said: Still no test IPv6 though. But from their /32 it appears it's all the same HE.net on IPv6 as well.

    Put in a ticket, I had issues with IPv6 as well (this was quite some time ago when I was a Contabo customer) and they were very helpful in terms of helping me get IPv6 working.

  • I need advice or help me understand setup fee of contabo. I got interested with SG server and a promotional $0 setup fee for first 1000 orders. I got myself one server but I selected monthly payment since I am new customer and not sure about their performance and stuff. Everything is fine and right now I am tweaking it.

    I login to customer dashboard and on "Your services" tab I saw this

    $ / Month         $ / Setup     Next payment
    $6.99             $6.99         20th of May, 2021
    

    Does this means that next month when I renew this service I need to pay $6.99 for setup and $6.99 for the vps?

    Isnt it $9.99 monthly recurring?

  • @snt I don't know. I confuse too. That is why I am asking existing customer. I am expecting a $9.99 monthly fee and $0 setup fee since the vps is already provisioned.

    Disclosure: Contabo gave me very early access (pre launch) to both a VPS and a VDS and - again - worked closely together with me, really listened and significantly enhancing quite a few routes.

    Benchmark and review based on 150 or so runs upcoming. Quick peek ahead of review: their nodes are very good and with fast disks too.

    I don't know their pricing (didn't even look yet) but highly recommended if it fits within your budgets. Finally a VPS with both great hardware and very decent routes in Asia and Ozzyland.

    Edit: I went considerably beyond my usual target set and did test quite a few Asian targets too, ranging from MY to JP and NZ.

    Sorry, I don't know, except that with a VDS you obviously can have 100% usage. I'd guess though that they're relatively relaxed wrt VPS due to not brutally overselling and very decent node hardware.

    Agree, I regret buying those vps for vpn use. Never buy vps for vpn anymore, not stable at all.

    Buy NordVPN 2-year plan with 68% off for only $3.71/mo and get one extra year or month as a gift.
