We value a good price-performance ratio. Therefore, we use the Fair-Use principle to bill for traffic usage. This does not specify an exact limit, but limits excessive usage. If a customer with a €4 vServer were to consume 5TB within 20 days, it would cost us far more than the monthly value paid for the server. Most customers do not require more than 1TB per month, so we can refrain from setting a specific usable traffic limit at the time of ordering. If the consumption of all customers were this high, we would have to charge correspondingly higher prices for all customers. Depending on the booked server, we offer a burst speed that can be used with full bandwidth up to a limit of either 1.5TB or 2.5TB per month. After that, the respective server’s bandwidth is reduced to 50 Mbit/s. In extreme cases, we reserve the right to further reduce it to 25 Mbit/s.

If more traffic is needed at full speed, it can be booked afterwards at any time.

The following types of traffic are not allowed

  • VPN traffic outside of your own household
  • Traffic through Tor nodes of any kind
  • Torrent with copyrighted material
  • Proxy (similar) traffic outside of your own household
  • IPTV
  • 24/7 livestreams to Twitch/YouTube and similar platforms

These types of traffic lead to permanent or unfair traffic. They should be avoided.

Examples of allowed traffic (within Fair Use)

  • High-traffic websites
  • Download sites within legal limits
  • Nextcloud or similar file transfers without public access
  • Traffic from gameserver content
  • Private VPN traffic for your own PC

Booking additional traffic

In general, a desired quota must be booked in advance, which expires if not used.

You can book up to 10TB for €9.50 per TB. From 10TB onwards, you pay €8.50 per TB. So if you want to book 2TB of extra burst (up to 1 Gbit/s), it will cost you a one-time fee of €19.00. Special traffic expires if not used and is billed monthly. The booking date is always the day on which the corresponding service was booked.
