Hetzner price increase for servers from the Server Auction
Just received this email from Hetzner.
Do you think all businesses can handle this price change ?
Dear Mr Name
As a client with one of our servers from the Server Auction, you benefit from our low prices and excellent performance. Our goal is to always provide you with the best possible products at affordable prices.
Unfortunately, energy prices in Germany have been increasing dramatically, and electricity plays a big role in the operating costs for servers. We have always calculated the prices for the Server Auction to be as low as possible. The current prices for many Server Auction servers do not cover the increasing operating costs.
Unfortunately, we are forced to increase the prices on these Server Auction models so we can cover their increased operating costs. We will increase the prices as little as necessary.
The monthly prices will change for the following servers you use:
Server name new price old price Starting on
servername 29.00 Euro 26.87 Euro 2022-03-01
servername 29.00 Euro 26.03 Euro 2022-03-01
servername 31.00 Euro 26.03 Euro 2022-03-01
(monthly price, excl. VAT)
If you are unhappy with the new prices, and therefore would like to end your contract with us, you can do so within the regular cancellation deadline. You can do this in a few quick clicks on your Robot account. If you take no action, your contract will continue as usual, but with the new prices for the above products.
We hope that we have clearly explained why we needed to make this difficult decision. We thank you in advance for your support and understanding.
This change may mean that you want to consider other server options with us. Please check out our website at https://www.hetzner.com. There may be some limited-time sales that catch your eye. Or you may be interested in saving costs by switching to our cloud servers: https://www.hetzner.com/cloud
