Don't buy with Contabo. Their support is shit, hardware that is barely running, oversold, mediocre support and their "ddos protection" literally completely blocks all data to your server for an hour/a day.

My best advice: Hetzner ( https://www.hetzner.com/dedicated-rootserver ), the plans start at like 34€/mo and are completely reasonable, with contabo you're buying a VPS, where here you're getting a dedicated server with decent DDoS protection (i've had no issues with L3/L4 attacks, handled them perfectly), alternatively, OVH, they have the best protection but is a little pricier and the support is, well, shit.

The ~5-15€ you're saving from not going to Hetzner are really going to show in terms of performance, Contabo can't even run 1.15 / 1.14 / 1.13 minecraft servers because of the shitty 2ghz processors.

Seriously, just go Hetzner.

I have a question about the contabo server company, I want to set up a server for a game but I don't know what protection it has.

Is it worth buying one in cash?
Their anti-ddos is a meme, their VPSs are oversold to shit, and they run on very slow and old hardware. Not to mention their support takes days on end for a response. Just avoid them.

I have to disagree, I know I will be the minority opinion here but I have had no problems with Contabo. Their VPS L SSD has operated multiple Minecraft servers in my network (1.13.2) without any problems, it even handled CS:GO, LFD2 and HL2: DM. However, I cannot comment on their DDoS protection as I have never experienced an attack that I have noticed. But ultimately, it’s up to you.

I've also never had any problems with Contabo other than their DDoS protection.
Support was nice enough to give me a voucher to remove the setup fee :)

I still wouldn't recommend it for anything more than a Minecraft server for your friends or Discord bot.
