4 Reasons Behind Contabo Low Prices

Keeping prices low is deep in Contabo DNA

Right Hardware

At Contabo we always carefully check not only the relation between purchase price and the performance offered (CPU Performance per EUR), but we also look at the energy efficiency (CPU Performance per Watt) and durability of each hardware component. This way we can be sure that purchased hardware will be long-lasting and inexpensive to operate which translates directly into our ability to offer low prices.

Scale & Standarization

Our prices are low prices because of the effects of scale. Of course companies like AWS are bigger than us, but unlike most of our competitors we have a fully unified hardware platform in all Data Centers around the world. Thanks to that we not only get better discounts on purchase prices (which we then can pass on to our customers), but we also save money & time on maintenance.


We use proprietary optimization scripts to manage load on our servers. This way we are able to offer stable performance for all our customers at great price point. Also our logistics and warehouse management are optimized to reduce waste and thus give us space to offer even better prices.

Lean Culture

Germans are known for looking at every euro twice before spending it. And we are no different. We don't invest in premium office locations or expensive company cars. Even our CEO shares the room with 3 other people. Thanks to this lean approach, even with our low prices, we are profitable.

Contabo Support
