The Contabo Difference

We always strive to pass on low prices and discounts to our customers. We’re able to provide high quality servers at a value to our customers through a combination of using brand new components from Intel, AMD, Dell, HP, and Samsung that we buy at a solid discount, optimizing server loads, and managing our data centers efficiently (we own our data centers and all of our hardware).

Industry-leading publications and customers have praised our team for the work they’ve done in resolving issues quickly. Fortunately, the support team isn’t one to rest on their laurels, and they always strive to improve their craft.
To quote one of our co-founders, "We are obsessed with security." We maintain strict role-based access (RBAC) rules across the entire company, especially when it comes to our data centers (all of them have 24/7 surveillance and layers of security measures). And, we have thorough processes that ensure we maintain the highest of security precautions for each of our customers.

Operating Systems, Apps, and Deployment Options for Your Dedicated Server
What You Get with Your Dedicated Server
All resources are allocated to you for max predictable performance – no sharing with other instances, no neighbors, and no steal. When you buy a dedicated server, you get 100% CPU all the time so you can run latency-sensitive apps and workloads.
Whether you're needing servers for gaming and streaming or complex, resource-intensive infrastructures, you can choose from a variety of HDD, SSD, and NVMe SSD options. Hardware RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10 are also available.
Adjust your hardware configuration to match even the most demanding workloads and applications. We can also work with you to customize your server end-to-end, but note it takes a bit longer to configure (it's worth the wait, though).
Each server comes with dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, and you can buy and configure additional IP addresses if you need more.
32 TB outgoing, and unlimited inbound data transfer with a 1 Gbps connection speed (comes standard). You can also upgrade to 10 Gbit/s with up to 324 TB transfer. Note that in Australia, we offer 10 TB of outgoing, and unlimited inbound data transfer at the same great performance.
You can add dedicated NVIDIA GeForce and Tesla GPUs to your dedicated servers if you need GPU computing for high performance, intensive applications like training machine learning algorithms or mining crypto.
You can run your own VMs on our bare metal servers. We offer AMD EPYC™ with simultaneous multithreading (SMT) for outstanding server virtualization efficiency, and we support most hypervisors out-of-the-box. And if you need it, we offer virtualization software like Proxmox VE.
We offer IPMI/iLO access to remotely access, monitor, and control your dedicated servers. You'll also get sensor information via IPMI.
You can build private networks and link your servers using networking equipment like switches, routers, and hardware firewalls.
Contabo’s global network is protected at the network level by always-on DDoS mitigation. We automatically detect and mitigate DDoS attacks on your infrastructure.
You can manage your DNS via the Contabo Customer Control Panel. You can also buy domains from us, or bring your own.
The web UI makes cloud services and account management easy with a few clicks and drag-and-drop functionality.

"If there is a host I recommend, then Contabo is it. At first I was thinking if I should go for Contabo or not due to the amount of people saying it was a scam or that stuff like bandwidth and etc were not really unlimited or at X speed, but I risked and I can say that all the specs they advertise are true."
