Contabo Introduces New Data Center Location in the United States

Howdy!
Today is a big day for us at Contabo: After months of preparations, we are happy to announce the official launch of our third data center, located in St. Louis, Missouri, USA!

USA was by far the most frequently requested location. We’ve heard you and we’ve delivered. From now on, you can enjoy the same made-in-Germany quality we are known for not only in our 2 EU locations, but also in the brand-new location in the United States.

Current Contabo Data Center Locations

Made in Germany, Located in USA

Our new location has been established with the same care and attention to detail as our EU locations. US Location is equipped with two 10 Gbit/s uplinks, redundant power and cooling. We have our own employees on the ground in St. Louis. Even the head of our US team is German! We use the same hardware and software to ensure consistent experience in the new US location. It feels like yet another server room in Munich or Nuremberg, but on the other side of the pond. Interested in testing your ping? Contact our support team.

All Key Services Offered

Starting today you can choose from our best-selling VPS SSD series as well as 10-Core and Dual 10-Core Dedicated Servers in our US Location. Order them directly through our website and indicate desired location during the order process. Right now, our services are priced in EUR only, but we are working on changing that – stay tuned!

Great Prices

We keep the same base price for all our services in both EU and US locations. At the same time, we are introducing a Location Fee for our US location as the operating costs in the US (including electricity, cooling and data center floor) are higher. The Location Fee depends on the service you order:

  • VPS S SSD: +1 EUR / month
  • VPS M SSD: +2 EUR / month
  • VPS L SSD: +3 EUR / month
  • VPS XL SSD: +6 EUR / month
  • Dedicated Server 10-core: +20 EUR / month

For example, the price for VPS S SSD in US Location is 4.99 EUR + 1 EUR Location Fee, which is roughly 6.55 USD per month for 4 cores, 8 GB RAM, and 200 GB SSD disk space.

Unlimited Traffic

Yes, on besides our German standards and unrivaled prices we are also going to keep our current bandwidth policy in our US Location, which makes us one of the few providers to offer unlimited bandwidth.

With the new location you will be able to serve your US customers even better than before. Keep us posted on what else we can do to keep you successful!

  • “We’re keeping the same prices … and adding a location fee for the US”

    So that’s not keeping the same prices then, is it 😀

    It’s logical that when prices are higher in one location, that is reflected in the pricing of the service as well… But don’t say that it’s the same when it’s not please

  • Great, congrats, the next step is allow a CDN between those places for fast delivery in all over the world

  • This is amazing news. Keep up the great work, Contabo. Always a proud customer.

  • Do US have a good antiddos? Not like the one in Germany, which is very bad.

  • Excelente noticia! una pregunta el precio que he pagado, si decido realizar a futuro la migración a USA, varía el valor que tengo o debería pagar algún sobrecosto?

  • It’s a great news! And I am waiting for an Latinamerica location. Brazil, for example. Best regards Contabo!

  • You guys provide the BEST VPS services at the most reasonable prices, hands down. I appreciate the hard work you all have put in and can’t wait to see how the US datacenter performs.

  • Excellent Contabo!
    Doing business in the USA implies the presence of a web server directly in territory where services are provided and goods are sold. The data center in St. Louis, Missouri will help to successfully develop our publishing business in North America. It was a necessary step.
    Thank you for your attention to customer tasks.

  • great job. hope this will improve the speed for your asian and middle east gulf customer. kindly run a comparison of speed to help us understand what will be the difference from Middle East Gulf in terms of browsing speed.

  • Congrats on the new datacenter.
    Is there a reason why you guys are keeping a bucket in the middle of the room?

  • I hope someday you’ll covering the Asia area, it would be great having all major locations covered by your services.
    One more thing would be the possibility to host your own Reverse DNS and having internal IP addresses.

    anyway, nice work guys!

  • Is this location disaster proof as st. Louis has been under water during last storm Katrina.

  • Podem informar se a velocidade em St Louis é mais rápida para nós. Com sites aqui no Brasil??
    Assim, posso escolher melhor um novo VPS.
