Trust me, you should move away from Contabo as a whole
What are other cheap alternatives?
I'm sorry I don't know any other cheap alternatives. The hosting provider I now use is Hetzner because it has some many options and has a really powerful API, but it is more expensive than Contabo I'm afraid
Yes and I've heard about Hetzner doing exactly the same thing Contabo did with us, exactly with a Nitter instance or two. https://nixnet.services/blog/nitter-behind-http-basic-auth/ Unfortunately I suspect this is the case with all hosting providers...

Well, yes, I don't think they have the choice too tbh. What is to be ashamed is services like Contabo just ignoring e-mails at all which I hope Hetzner won't do if such a thing had to happen to me.

From what I read from the blog post you've linked, they're using automated tools to do so (crawling the web?), don't you think that using a custom robots.txt file disallowing web crawlers would help?

Btw, the use of Basic Auth was pretty clever from them
From the blog post I got that the hosting company basically ignored the emails too. And am sure they mostly do that.

Unsure exactly how to do that, but if I am guided I could try.
