Anyone knows a good VPS provider based in Europe and respects privacy?

    @linuxxx so I'm guessing they r reliable and privacy is important for them.

    What about their support just in case of help needed?

    And where r their servers based?

    @gitpush Yeah, Contabo is pretty nice. Only issue is that they don't run on 100% renewable energy.

    Servers somewhere in Germany.

    Hetzner (afaik)

    @gitpush Not entirely sure about what specific privacy things you're looking for but AFAIK they take it seriously. Servers located in Germany!

    @endor I really hate their overcomplicated UI. After moving to digital ocean, I never would go back to hetzner.

    Not even a peep about Proton VPN? I'm dissapoint...

    @Wombat They have an API if you don't want the UI.

    @theKarlisK Not what OP was asking. And that's a terrible VPN.

    @kescherRant oh my bad - I totally misread that.

    You did however got me curious about the harsh words about the Proton VPN.

    @theKarlisK Proton my Ass.
    There is no truly trustworthy VPN.

    Go and get your own server. Contabo I can only suggest.

    Fast setup, fast support AND nice people in support. They really understood that you have a server for a serious reason.
    Also, they only go down for very critical problems and you will be notified about every change they do. Even normal planned service is planned at least two weeks ahead and be done at low-access time. You can also intervene and suggest a better time to service.

    @theKarlisK any commercial VPN service doesn't do jack shit for your privacy. They're just glorified proxies.

    @010001111 @kescherRant I still don't see any arguments why Proton == bad ... I've followed their development over the years ever since they announced the Proton mail beta .. and while I have a VPN box (well, not quite - still haven't set it up after I nuked the server for the hell of it just to reconfigure it), even a personal VPN only obfuscates the traffic.

    @Wombat I guess I'm not very familiar with the entirety of Hetzner's UI, but the cloud interface seems just incredibly simple and responsive to me.
    Baremetal servers and DNS though - yeah, those look ugly and dated.

    @theKarlisK VPNs are made to connect devices together in a kind of virtual LAN. For any other reason, there might not be much of a point in using one.

    @kescherRant in the civilized world yes. However, there are many reasons why someone would use a VPN, not necessarily for privacy. In my case I most frequently use them to bypass geoblocks.
