30 runs of pseudo random data should be safe enough for a rented server you’re going to return soon…

# replace sdX with the device you want to wipe
for n in `seq 30`; do dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdX bs=8b conv=notrunc; done& pid=$!
# get progress
while true; do kill -USR1 $pid && sleep 1 && clear; done
