Some key features of our Cloud Servers
Excellent connectivity: By default, every cloud server node is connected with 2x 10Gbit to our network. This provides network-level fault resilience, fast data transfers, and best performance even at peak times. Network-intensive applications are excellently hosted with us.
DDoS-Protection: Our cloud servers include our exclusive DDoS protection, which unique beside other well known solutions. Even DDoS attacks on web applications are filtered out by our DDoS protection.
Additional IP-Addresses: You can add additional IP addresses (from 1.49€) and subnets (from 6.95€) to your instance. The setup takes place immediately, the reserved address ranges are routed to an instance of your choice.
Daily Backup: Data loss is annoying. Accordingly, our cloud server nodes are equipped with several hard drives (hardware raid) as standard. You can avoid the risk of self-generated data loss with minimal effort through our automated snapshot backups. For this purpose we make a complete backup of your server daily between 02:00 to 10:00 am.
Scale at any time: Do you need more CPU power, memory or disk space instant? Scale your server automatically to the next higher level, fully automated and without changing the existing configuration or data. We only charge you the difference in connection with the current remaining term.
Virtual Private Lan: Create your own, isolated networks with our Virtual Private Lan (VPL). VPLs behave like V-Lans and provide an internal network between different instances where you can freely use your own IP addresses. Choose between 1Gbit, 2Gbit or 5Gbit interfaces.
Free BGP: Already own an AS and IP-Space? Just open a ticket after your server has been provisioned and tell us your ASN and Prefixes with valid route objects. We will configure the session within two business days.

Very nice service, super reliable network - overall over happy with my VMs with fast pipe!
"For customers from Germany, the required VAT of 19% is already included. For all customers outside of Germany, the VAT is calculated based on the country of origin."
The VAT is only lift (for outsiders of EU) on the checkout?
Newbie here, is it common for VPS providers to provide DDoS protection? And how does that work?
The gross pricing is for every country the same. net pricing differs and we overtake the difference on our own.
Nowadays it's crucial if you operate a well known service on your server. Providers without ddos protection may charge you for bandwith overusage or nullroute your ip-address in case of an attack.
You can find out more on https://www.fastpipe.io/ddos_protection how our ddos protection works.
I'm confused - does this mean if you are outside the EU the price reduces from roughly €2.95 to €2.48 because of the removal of the 19% German VAT that is included in the €2.95 price?
Or are you saying that the price irrespective of the customers location is going to be €2.95?
Thats the case.
That is very disappointing - there are a lot of potential customers who would have benefitted by the removal of VAT for being outside the EU.
It is what it is, but I think compared to the other German providers here (and elsewhere, who clearly advertise the prices as including German VAT at 19% AND that it will be removed if you ARE outside the EU), your particular setup seems radically different and very disadvantaged to a lot of customers. I think it would be great if you can reconsider the way you price things assuming that the accounting on it works and pass on the non-VAT pricing benefit to a segment of your (potential) customers.
There is no VAT applied, the gross price is basically just the same for all customers. Of course I understand what you mean, however due to our accounting process it's currently not possible in another way.
Cloud SE-1 with half specs of your Cloud SE-2 would be really good for those of us on the cheap .
Flags... is aes available?
We do use kvm64 as cpu model by default which does not provide AES flags. Maybe in the future, we will provide complete passthrough for some cases.
So basically, for those that are from EU you pay the 19% from your pocket? That's actually pretty nice. But for the this price less 19% would be an instant buy.
The price is still great, but not on threshold I wanted to.
Basically yes, if you are a EU member and you are from another country than Germany, where they have a higher taxation, we pay it from our "pocket" - means, your gross pricing doesnt change.
That also means, if you are from USA, you still pay the same as for example someone from Austria or Netherlands.
Wanted to order, can't find my country UAE (Dubai / United Arab Emirates) 😔
Just chose "Outside of the EU / Not listed"
