Best thing about our VPS? Price efficiency! Starting from very low price you get your own virtual server with an operating system of your choice and full root access. A Virtual Private Server is a great way to get an independent computing instance at an unmatched price point.

100% NVMe SSD Storage

Virtual Dedicated Servers would not be complete without the fastest storage on the market: NVMe SSD. We use disks only from high-quality suppliers to provide cutting edge performance and high IOPS rate. Additionally, up to 2 additional disks can be added to further extend the available storage.

Quick Provisioning

Every day we provision hundreds of VPS with an average time of 20 minutes. Make sure to pay for Virtual Private Server with credit card so that we can provision it right away without waiting for money to arrive.

Dedicated CPU & RAM

Virtual Dedicated Servers run in a virtualized environment (just like VPS), but unlike Virtual Private Servers, each Virtual Dedicated Server gets a certain number of physical CPU cores permanently assigned for your exclusive use. The same is true for RAM which is also exclusively reserved for each instance and not shared with anyone.

No Extra Cost For Transfer

Unlike some of our competitors, we will never charge you extra for incoming or outgoing transfer on your Virtual Private Server. 32 TB of transfer is already included in each VPS package.

Quick Provisioning

Virtual Dedicated Server is the quickest way to get a powerful computing instance with Contabo. You can get an instance comparable with many Dedicated Servers in the time that it takes to provision a VPS.

Full Virtualization

Our Virtual Private Servers are virtualized on hardware level. This means that you get full benefits of the hardware components used to build the server which is hosting your VPS. This pays off in a better performance.

Hyper-threading Included

You can utilize the advantages of Hyper-threading (HT) or - to be more precise - simultaneous multithreading (SMT) with your Virtual Dedicated Server at no extra cost. That means each physical core which comes with your VDS can support 2 threads and act as 2 virtual CPUs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is a Virtual Dedicated Server?

Our Virtual Dedicated Servers bring together all the advantages of Dedicated Servers and VPS. Thus, it can be considered as a hybrid between a VPS and a Dedicated Server. By means of virtualization multiple VDS exist on a host server system the same way as VPS, but each Virtual Dedicated Server has its own dedicated hardware resources, so computing power in the form of CPU Cores and RAM ready to be used only for your own applications without sharing them with other VDS on the same host server system. Because of this, VDS can be fully used for any kind of virtualization projects and support real-time sensitive applications perfectly. Moreover, VDS come with additional VNC access and can be provided as quickly as VPS. Of course, you get full root access to a VDS, too. In addition to that, you can add additional Storage to your VDS and thus it offers more customizable hardware options than our VPS. Because of that, our VDS are often referred to as a slice of a Dedicated Server.

Can I change the hardware configuration of my Virtual Dedicated Server later on?

Partly. While both the CPU cores and RAM cannot be customized, you can always add additional Storage space of up to 8 TB as well as additional Unlimited Bandwidth (depending on your VDS plan).

Can I customize a VDS? Can I get extra Storage space?

We do not offer a customization of the core components of our Virtual Dedicated Servers, but it is possible to expand storage space by ordering extra SSDs. Two extra drives can be ordered in addition to the storage space already included in the VDS offer. We recommend to compare and choose the VDS model which best suits your performance needs. If you already own a VDS and require additional drives, just contact us and let us know.

Which Operating Systems are available for my VDS?

The choice is yours: Select from a wide range of popular Linux distributions (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, and many others) and Windows Server. Should you be interested in nested virtualization, Proxmox is also available.

Do you offer control panels for an easy administration of my VDS?

Yes, we offer you cPanel and Plesk admin panels at extra cost, as well as Webmin which is available free of charge. We exclusively offer you to try Plesk one month for free with our VPS, Virtual Dedicated Servers, and Dedicated Servers! Should it not suit your needs, simply cancel it before the end of the first month through your Customer Control Panel and there will be no fee charged for it! You can order your preferred panel directly with your Server or later by contacting our customer support via e-mail.

Can I switch from my existing product at from here to a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS)?

Generally speaking, it is possible to switch from any other product to one of our VDS, but there is no one-click migration offered. The proven approach and general process is: Order the VDS model of your choice, send the initial payment, and after the provisioning of your new VDS you can transfer your data from the "old" product to the new VDS, then cancel your "old" product in the Contabo customer control panel. As a result, you will keep the new VDS only, and the change would be accomplished. If this approach is not feasible for you for whatever reason, get in touch with us instead, providing us with the information on the product that you wish to be replaced and the VDS model that you desire. We will do our utmost to find a working solution for you then.
