VPS XL: Now 6 instead of 4 CPU cores!

VPS-xlShortly after our most recent price reduction and directly following the doubling of our VPS performance features we are even outdoing ourselves once more:

From now on, we do offer our top ranking virtual private server, the VPS XL, with six CPU cores instead of four, each at a frequency of 3.2 Ghz.
If it is dozens of MySQL queries per second, tens of thousands of homepage visitors per day or the calculation of complex 3D structures - you rarely will find a way to bring this high-end VPS down to its knees.

These are the VPS features at a glance:

VPS XL
6 CPU Cores
16 GB RAM (guaranteed)
800 GB HDD
100 Mbps switch port
Unlimited Traffic
Only 29.99 EUR / month!
Special introductory offer: 0 EUR setup-fee!

Order our best virtual machine, which features enormous 16 GB of RAM, 800 GB of storage and, of course, unlimited traffic!

High demand for our VPS and Dedicated Servers!

Short after our company name change we reduced the prices of our dedicated and virtual servers and some of our upgrades.
Since last week our high-end server “Dedicated Server X”, which includes a powerful Intel Core i7 3930K processor, 64 GB DDR3-RAM and 256 GB SSD with 6 Gbit/s + 3 TB HDD, can already be ordered at the ridiculously low cost of 109.99 EUR/ month.
Have a look on our server overview at http://contabo.com/?show=servers – our prices of all other servers are quite reasonable as well.

Furthermore, we doubled the performance of our Virtual Private Servers (VPS). From now on, our customers get 16 GB RAM for only 29.99 EUR/ month. These 16 GB RAM are guaranteed to be available, contrary to other offers. You get 100% performance in full!
In addition to that the virtual machine offers 800 GB HDD and 4 cores with 3,2 Ghz each. All together for just 29.99 EUR/ month is a more than excellent cost-benefit ratio, in our opinion.

The consequences of the price reduction are not really very surprising for us but very pleasing. Every day our support team, that is responsible for new customers and for the setup of all ordered hosting products, is doing a great job by providing almost instant setup, usually within a few hours after receipt of payment.

When we checked our new orders today at 10.30 in the morning we already recorded new orders of
- 30 VPS and
- 4 Dedicated Servers.
We are already excited what count we are going to reach at the end of the day ;-).

Parallel to all the new orders the volume of support requests increases. Reasons for that are not because of errors or malfunctions of our server hardware – most of the support enquiries contain individual requests, technical issues and the startup procedure of the servers by the customers.
Even in times when more assistance is required by our customers we are taking care of every phone and email enquiry instantly, often only within a few minutes.
In short: Contabo is able to provide competent instant service and also care for individual requirements someone may have. The office is occupied from 8 am to 11 pm on 365 days a year including holidays and weekends.

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our new and existing customers. Thank you for having placed your trust in us! We promise to keep on working hard to provide optimum service in combination with an excellent price performance ratio.
For further questions or a detailed product advice feel free to contact our support team (support@contabo.com). We are looking forward to your request.

Upgrades: Reduced prices and new options!

A few days ago, we drastically reduced the prices of our dedicated servers and virtual servers to provide even more powerful hosting solutions at an unbeatable price.

The server upgrades are next in line. During the order process of a new server, our customers can upgrade the basic configuration of the server according to their wishes and requirements using our order configurator: An additional hard disk is required for the server? No problem! This hard disk should complement the one that is equipped by default and should run in a RAID-array including a hardware RAID-controller? One more click and this configuration is saved as well.

These and many other options are now available at an even lower price than before. Besides the possibility to choose the server upgrades during the order process of a new server, all of these improvements are of course also available for existing customers and already installed servers: A short email to support@contabo.com is sufficient and our support team will guide you through all further steps!

Listed below, you can find the upgrades we reduced the prices for:

  • + 400 GB hard disk: Now only 6.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • + 1000 GB hard disk: Now only 7.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • + 2000 GB hard disk: Now only 9.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • + 3000 GB hard disk: Now only 12.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • + Intel X25-M (Postville)-SSD 80 GB: Now only 11.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • + 256 GB SSD (Samsung 830): Now only 19.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • 1 Gbit/s-Port: Now only 39.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • Hardware-RAID 1: Now only 12.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • 100 Mbit/s bandwidth (24/7 guaranteed): Now only 79.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • KVM over IP: Now Now only 29.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • Backup space (available sizes: 50 - 250 - 500 - 1000 GB): Now only 3.99 - 11.99 - 19.99 - 31.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!

Beside that, we offer ready-to-use hard disk packages from now on which are most interesting especially for hosting resellers.
Each package consists of four hard disks of the same size and a hardware RAID-controller which can be configured in a RAID 5 or RAID 10 array according to your requirements.

Especially applications causing concurrent I/O-operations can take advantage of these packages: The hard disks are providing outstanding I/O-performance due to their RAID-configuration and are therefore providing a remarkably good read- and writespeed.
The usage of such compilations results in an enormous performance increase that should not be missed especially on servers that are used for virtualization projects.

And for those who consider this solution as not sufficient yet, we are now offering BBUs (battery units) which can be installed into the RAID-controller. Choosing this upgrade, you can enable the write-cache function on the RAID-controller to achieve an even better I/O-performance.

Listed below, you can find an overview of our speed-optimized hard disk packages:

  • 4 x 1 TB HDD 24/7, RAID 10 or 5: Only 54.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • 4 x 2 TB HDD 24/7, RAID 10 or 5: Only 69.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • 4 x 3 TB HDD 24/7, RAID 10 or 5: Only 84.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!
  • BBU to enable write-cache: Only 29.99 EUR / month. No setup fee!

Our support-team will gladly assist you if you have any requests regarding server upgrades or any other product!
