      Well, this sounds impressive for that price. Is there some catch? Can some Contabo customer comment?

      i will run a test when i get home but it's quite fast no slowdowns or lag.

      i am a contabo customer :)

      the only catch is the bandwidth part

      "Unlimited traffic: No additional costs due to traffic (if average traffic consumption continuously exceeds 60 Mbit/s over a timespan of at least 5 days the connection is switched to 10 Mbit/s)"

      you was complaining about speeds and when i pointed out that it was 100Mbps you failed to reply.

      can i ask where are you from? i am from the UK and can easily max out my connection to contabo.

      What the fuck are you even talking about? I'm not a customer of contabo and certainly will never become one. I didn't complain about their network speed.

      I won't support a datacenter that was built up with scam money and wouldn't even exist today if Michael Bölke woldn't have ripped off a lot of people.

      no need for profanity just makes you look like a moron.

      so the network is not bad, you just do not like them... please take that stupid rant elsewhere and provide a source for these serious accusations (i would be interested myself).

      tr1cky said: I didn't complain about their network speed.

      "Their network is utter shit." what exactly makes it bad? and your reply on that other thread was after someone posted some speed tests, i think you are getting lost with all this nonsense you are talking.

      How can you call a network as utter shit if you don't even use it?
      As for me, I have since half a year now a medium vps from contabo and I have to say, for the price, the specs and the speed to greece is very good.

      Thanks for putting my words totally out of context, you said to me that I would have complained about their network speed and I said that I didn't complain about it as I don't really care because I don't use them, but I know that their network is bad.

      I didn't reply to a speedtest thread of a contabo vps.

      you are just some angry person by the sounds of it perhaps you need to get out more?

      Go translate it yourself. euros4click (one of his previous sites) failed to pay out their webmasters for a full year. The site was shutdown and nobody got the money.

      Betrogener ist generell der Webmaster, der zum einen auf seinen Webseiten nervige Layer- und Popup-Werbung erscheinen sieht, sich damit - natürlich - seine Besucher vergrault und dann, zum Dank, natürlich keinen Cent dafür bekommt.

      Well, that sums up that ... certainly scam, but also karma.

      Had VPS, took down entire DC with DDoS (sorry, lol nope) - They refunded me in full and provided a rescue system with new IP to get data, was good. Paid like 25EUR for 20GB RAM and 2TB HDD.

      CPU was mediocre, certainly not more than 2 cores dedicated (IIRC benchmark somewhere around 2000, which would be pretty much 1/4th of an i7) - by CPU flags it was some sort of i7 with probably 64GB RAM (non ECC) so likely 4 20GB VMs (64GB available, 80GB sold, some overselling).

      HDD seemingly dedicated but i did not fill it up, likely a RAID1/10 of like 4x4TB (8TB useable, 4 VMs).

      Network "eh", you'd think with their upstreams it would be good - The routes are not bad, but it seems the ports are oversold at times. Mnet also has some capacity issues on private peerings it seems.

      Yea, very questionable history on that guy.

      which benchmark? where you using a detailed one? (such as geekbench)

      Contabo is as low end as it gets qualitywise in Germany.
      Support replies but is as helpful as the Kimsufi support.
      Their services are hit or miss. If you get on a good node/port you get quite some hardware for a low price. However it's quite possible that you get put on a beyond hope oversold node/port.
      Everybody I know who deployed live projects with them moved sooner or later somewhere else for more reliability.

      End of line.

    • Tion said: However it's quite possible that you get put on a beyond hope oversold node/port.

      then ask to be moved, that's what i did and they happily did it.

      I know some of the Contabo people from former times. I would not touch anything coming from them with a ten foot pole. No matter how cheap, allegedly great or whatever it is. Those f*ckers could pay me for hosting with them and I still would not.

      @boernd: I studied law (and business economics), too. It's incredible how many scumbags choose those study paths... (without any assessment of my person, of course)

      Imagine you know some people personally, in their private life. They are not friends, but close enough to permanently appear in your social environment. And you get the chance to observe them and their actions (either private or business-wise) for years. I will not go too much in detail, sorry for that, but accept my opinion: No. Not the type of guys that you want to deal with. They are semi-shady fuck knuckles.
