Fedora 30 available now!

Today is the hottest day of the year in Germany, with temperatures currently at 37 degrees Celsius (98,6 degrees Fahrenheit) and it is really tough to step out of the door. You start to sweat immediately! We hope the temperatures in your place of residence are a bit more humane and you can enjoy the summertime with delicious ice-cream or whatever you prefer. Should it be servers and hosting, we are happy to let you know:

As of today, the new Fedora 30 is available at Contabo. You can order it with every VPS and dedicated server. As an existing customer, you can also upgrade to the latest version via your customer control panel 🙂

Should you not be familiar with our services yet, we would like to emphasize that we always offer you the latest versions of all popular Linux distributions as well as Windows Server 2012 and 2016.

Oh and by the way: Even though the temperatures increase, you can rest assured that your servers are perfectly cooled in our data centers - for example thanks to our groundwater cooling system!

Plesk: 1 month for free – only at Contabo

Surely some of you have clicked through our website before and compared our many offers of (virtual) servers. It quickly becomes apparent that we do not offer any preconfigured packages. Quite the contrary, we give you the freedom to choose what you really need out of our many upgrade options. In addition to a large selection of popular Linux operating systems and Windows Server, you can also add a panel, which simplifies the administration of your new server significantly.

In the past, we have advertised a very special promotion several times already: Exclusively at Contabo you can try the popular panel Plesk Onyx one month for free! This offer is available for all of our virtual private servers (VPS). You can add it to your order after clicking on "Customize & Order" during the order process and choose one out of the three editions (each provides a different range of functions).

Wait a minute, three different editions, which one suits my needs? Good question! 🙂 We cannot answer it for you though. However, we have published several blog posts about Plesk Onyx in the past in which we have explained the different editions and summarized many useful functions for you.

Now we have taken another step forward and created a dedicated landing page for Plesk Onyx, which contains links to the most important blog posts, giving you a good idea what Plesk Onyx is all about! You can find it linked on many subpages of our website, or you just visit the Plesk Onyx landingpage here!

Should all of this convince you to try Plesk Onyx now, you can do so one month for free, exclusively available for our VPS! Just select the suitable edition during the order process or click on it on the landing page (then it is preselected), order your desired VPS and you are good to go! 🙂

Should you have any questions or inquiries, we are available on 365 days per year. Just contact our customer support for assistance!

CHIP Hotline-Test 2019: “A+” grade for Contabo

Once again, we have great news from inside Contabo: This year, too, the well-known German IT magazine CHIP and the research institution Statista have tested the hotlines of German providers during the past months. After more than 8.900 test calls the best hotlines for new customers were determined among 147 companies from 12 industries.

We are very happy that we were awarded with the overall rating “very good” in the category "hosting providers" this year again, after winning the competition last year. The detailed rating for Contabo:

Overall rating: Very good (96.7 out of 100 points)
Service quality: Very good (99 out of 100 points)
Waiting time: Very good (99 out of 100 points)
Reachability: Good (87 out of 100 points)
Transparency: Very good (90 out of 100 points)

We finished second among the 15 tested hosting providers, with a total of 96.7 points – 0.1 points behind the first place (96.8 points).

Receiving the A-grade for our hotline the second year in a row is a huge honor for our entire team. At the same time, it is motivation for us to continue to offer you, our valued customers the best support possible in every situation.

As always, you can contact us by phone directly via a standard landline number, without any hotline fees, queues or complex menu selection – on 365 days per year.
