Why the prices for cloud computing at ProfitBricks are so excellent?

As a provider of modern IaaS solutions, ProfitBricks embodies top performance. But our aim is to offer you the selected cloud ressources as inexpensively as possible. Therefore, we do not rely on long-term contract commitments with fixed service packages, unlike other providers, but instead offer you maximum flexibility with regard to costs. This makes it possible for you to not only reserve new resources at any time, but also to reduce computing power and storage capacity again as soon as your need decreases.

In any case, you pay only for what you actually used and needed. Free services such as the 24/7 SysAdmin Support (by telephone and e-mail), firewalls and incoming and internal traffic at zero cost complete the package of our low-priced cloud server solutions.
