Looking for cheap (but quality) VPS in Europe with 6 cores for $12 or less

Hi guys, I'm new here. Great resource for finding hosting deals. I'm working on a personal project and require a few VPS's in different countries in Europe, that are somewhat close to Germany. I've already secured a few in Helsinki (Webdock), Amsterdam (MaxKVM) and Bucharest (dedicatserver.ro) for the price I'm looking for. Looking for one more quality VPS, hopefully in Germany and still cannot find it for the price. The most important part it needs at least 6 cores.

Specs I'm looking for are:

VZ Type: Any (KVM preferred)
Cores: 6
RAM: 4 GB
Disk Space: 25 GB
Disk Type: Any (NVMe or SSD preferred)
Bandwidth: Any
Port Speed: Any
Location: Germany (or any country relatively close to Germany)
Budget: $12 USD monthly or EUR 10 monthly (or less!)
Billing Period: Any
OS: Ubuntu 20.04

That's it - tough find I know, but I'm sure someone might know of some hidden gems out there that have a spec that matches (or comes very close to) the above for the price. Thanks in advance.

    contabo. Germany, low price , big machine

  • snzsnz Member

    yeah, as long as you don't need gigabit I'd also say contabo

    Thanked by 2fixxation bruh21
  • Nice one, thanks guys :)

  • bruh21bruh21 Member

    Yup, contabo should have what you need. Be sure to ask them to remove the disk IO limit.

  • Wow- this looks amazing. Exactly what I had hoped for as you can configure it to your exact requirements. Thanks a million for the share, this looks perfect. My 'ideal' server is working out to be about EUR 6.24 with the promo so that's well below my target EUR 10 month. Thank you!

    Just out of curiosity @fixxation , why 6 cores specifically? it doesn't matter how these cores actually perform?

    If you can run your app on 2 VMs instead of 1 (so you have two machines for Germany, one in Nuremberg, another in Falkenstein), I'd suggest getting two cpx21 VMs from HC. That way you get 6 vCPU cores, 8 GBs memory, 160 GBs storage distributed across two machines for 13.8 EUR/mo.

    Thanks for that, found one in Germany the other day so all sorted for now.

    Hi @Kassem - my project is made up of several parts, I actually have the core APIs and database with HC in Nuremberg. The servers I need here are apps running headless browsers, and I've found that 6 cores is the ideal number to keep my normalised load average < 0.5 most of the time. As long as they're about 2.50GHz or above, should be fine to keep them running smoothly. I'm trying a VPS with prepaid-hoster.de at the moment, got the 6 cores for EUR 6.24, all going well with that so far. I'm a big fan of HC though, really love it compared to all the other cloud hosting providers. Thanks for your message.

  • KassemKassem Member

    I see. I wonder if running these apps with headless browsers on a server with integrated GPU be any faster?

    Let's know how your experience goes with prepaid-hoster.de. Can you post a YABS?

    That seems quite... good? Also Hetzner ISP? Are they a Hetzner reseller?

  • I'm not an expert at analysing these benchmark results but... looks pretty decent for a 6 euro machine? My app runs smoothly on it, and still lots of room for spikes so that's the most important part IMHO.

    I think he went with the OpenVZ vServer config, it has shared cores and a 25GB disk, the rootserver (which is the link sent) is dedicated cores and 50GB disk minimum.
    Take a look at this:

    Yes that's pretty good.

    Looks like they are using these beasts: https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver/ax161

  • Bit of a shame the vServer are OpenVZ instead of KVM, but at least its not ancient, they are using OpenVZ 7

    here's a yabs result from one of the vServers i just got, not bad for 4.5 eur

    If they had servers in North America, they would be perfect, but I am considering switching to using their hosting for my website. The only problem is that I don't speak German, so it would be difficult to work with support.

    I don't speak German either, but Google translates the site. The guy on support is very responsive, tickets getting answered usually within 5-15 mins, very helpful and his English is perfect. Hugh value with these guys really, for what you get. In time I'll probably switch to their KVM machines, but for now the OpenVZ ones are more than enough for me - and for the price, can't beat it. Kudos to @ascicode for the share earlier, never would have found these guys in a Google search.

    OpenVZ 7 still uses an ancient kernel though :tongue:

  • I decided to test out one of their KVM machines with similar specs, 6 cores, 4 GB RAM, etc. Quite a bit better, and I prefer knowing my resources will 'be there' when I need them to be, here's the YABS result from the new machine:
