Eye Kaiser from Canada,

Overpriced, complicated user interface, mostly bitter staff.

Hetzner is not cheap, so figured they may at least offer quality. If you want to use them for hosting, be prepared to encounter one of the most complex user interfaces you have ever see. I did call and ask for help, so to Hetzner'...Read Mores credit you can do so. However, most of the people you get on the phone behave like this is the last thing in the world they want to do. If you hang up and try again, you might get a friendly person who will help. Probably one of the most stressful hosting providers I have ever encountered when it comes to support. Some places will rip you off for the money, Hetzner will rip off your nerves. I would rather they just take the money and run. I did give some points that were credit to the minority cool people that work there. Transferring domains out was a nightmare. I had to call a few times before a nice tech helped out with that. Maybe Hetzner's other services are cool, the shared hosting I encountered, not so much.Less

Hetzner Online,
Hi there, Could you possibly give me some information about the types of products that you are using, or perhaps give me your last support ticket number. I am curious to read the communications that took place between you and our ...Read Moreteams so that I can learn if there was a misunderstanding or if there is something that we clearly could have done better.

Is it possible that you are using one of our non-managed products (a dedicated root server, a cloud server, a server from the Server Auction, a Storage Box)...? Some customers mistakenly believe that these products include technical support. However, they are actually designed for customers who are very experienced technicians (people who do not want support and don't want to pay for it). These products do NOT include any support with software, configurations, security, configuring backups, configuring the networking, etc.)
If you have a non-managed product, and you would like to switch to a managed product (which DOES include support), our team can give you some information about how to go about doing that.
Another option would be keeping your non-managed product, but paying someone else to administer it for you. Or, if you are trouble-shooting a very specific issue, but are generally confident about doing your own sysadmin, I recommend checking out our Forum (https://forum.hetzner.com/). There are a lot of long-time users who give each other tips and tricks with troubleshooting. If you try this out, make sure to provide lots of details about your setup, your issue, and what you have tried to do so far to troubleshoot it. And you will probably get some helpful tips. I hope this information helps you. --Katie, Hetzner Online

They don't readjust server prices, even after 3 years.

They stated several times that they only do that after 3...Read More years of contract, forcing me to order a new server, transfer everything and cancel the old one.

However, this month I completed 3 years of contract for a particular server and they still refused to adjust the price. The same config is now ~100 euros cheaper in their server auction. I emailed them twice and they replied after a few days with the exact same message: "The price reduction of a dedicated root server is a gesture of goodwill from Hetzner. We have no contractual binding to this gesture to you. As we are experiencing a high volume on support requests at the moment, I'm afraid we have to lower the priority of this one.".

Their customer service is non existent, and they really don't care about their current customers. The only good thing they have is their price, so don't expect anything else from them.

Non-existing support, very bad quality hardware, complete nightmare

1.2
Not a paid review. Had a dedicated server with Hetzner, as soon as I received the server it had issues. But it took OVER 30 mails for the support to decide and help me.

Here's the longer explanation of what happened.

I'm hos...Read Moreting an image upload service with about ~5k images uploaded every day and ~100k views per day. It was time to move off VPS at another hosting company, which began to be slow and it needed more disk space. I chose Hetzner dedicated server due to their good price. Ordered the server with two disks in RAID1, received it swiftly and installed CentOS.

After about 1.5 day after full migration, got a notification the server is unresponsive. It was completely down, so hard reset the server from panel, investigated the issue but there was nothing interesting in logs. It happened once again in about 8 hours. Contacted support and said something is wrong with the server, and they insisted i have configured the server incorrectly. It started happening multiple times a day. Ran a disk check which reported that everything is fine. At all times I was in contact with support. Over the next 15 days I constantly contacted them saying something is wrong with the server and supported with generic answers. About 3 days before the server expired (that's about 25-26 days into the plan), support finally answered that they will physically take the disks out and check their health. They asked when can they turn the machine off - well, anytime since.. it doesn't even work correctly for almost a month. Few hours later they came back with the information that BOTH disks were faulty. They said they'll replace the disks, so they replaced them, had to install everything again but.. I am missing data since it was on those disks that they removed. Had to contact my previous hosting to give me a backup of data which sadly they remove after 30 days. Finally, Hetzner plugged in one disk and I copied from old disk what was there. Then, the server was working for few days.

I got to host a friends site on that server. The site was threatened by a local guy he would ddos it. We even chatted over skype where he admitted ddosing. He even was ddosing from his server in Hetzner. So I immediately contacted Hetzner and said I'm receiving ddos from one of their clients, they asked logs, I sent logs, they asked more logs, I sent more logs.. over 20 mails was exchanged for them to do nothing. Their client from their server from their network ddosing me, they can see the router logs, they got tcpdump and netstat logs from me and - they ignored me. They even asked me 3 times to send the logs, which I already sent them. I don't know, there seem to work some kind of morons. The only good thing they have is price, nothing else. It's not worth to destroy your own business over smaller price.

Expert Overview

German hosting company

Hetzner is a hosting company based in Germany.  The company appears to have won quite a few awards including the GreenIT best practice award 2011, Bayerns Best 50 in 2012, and EMEA 2012 finalists.  That being said, however, their website is very simple and poorly designed, which is unfortunate. They do offer a number of different services that will likely meet your needs, and they have hosting based in Germany, which will be nice for many companies who are targeting that country or anywhere in Europe.

Uptime & Reliability

Not much information on uptime

I looked through their site and could not find any type of uptime guarantee or an approximate history of their uptime.  They do seem to use high quality hardware and data center facilities, which will likely limit any issues.  When I looked for reviews, and on their social media pages I did not find any indication that they are having any significant issues.  There was one person who commented that his site was down, but no matter how good the hosting is, you will have at least a few people complaining.

Features

Plenty of hosting options

This company offers basic shared hosting, VPS and dedicated hosting options (if you looking for WordPress hosting, click here).  They also have colocation options, domain registration and more.  Most of the features in each package they offer are fairly standard.  One really weird thing about their packages is they offer them based on levels, but not in a normal way.  For example, the entry level package is Level 1, but the next step up is Level 4 and then they jump to Level 9.  This just makes the whole thing more confusing than is needed. There are limits on disk space and transfer volume, though bandwidth does become unlimited after the level 1 package.  Most everything you could want in a package will be included at no extra charge, which is nice.

Support

Good quality support features

This company has a lot of options when it comes to getting the support you need.  You can email them directly, or use their ’email support robot’ which can answer many issues.  THey also have a lot of documentation avaialble to help you with self-service. If you want to talk to a real person, they have a ticketing system that gets quick responses.  Overall, they do a good job of supporting the hosting that they provide.

Pricing

Fair pricing model

The prices are in Euros and are pretty much either in line with industry standards or slightly lower.  Level 1 starts at 1.90 Euro per month, and then the highest level of shared hosting is $19.90 Euro per month.  This includes the 19% VAT, which makes the pricing even more acceptable.  Overall, however, there is not much to complain about regarding their pricing structure.

Summary

Overall nice hosting option

When you look at their site you may think that they are a very basic/simple hosting company because of the design.  It looks like they created the website years ago and never had it updated.  Once you get past that, however, you can see that they offer a good service at a fair price.  If you are looking for German based hosting, this isn’t a bad option to consider. Pros:

  • Fair prices
  • Easy to understand features
  • Won multiple awards

Cons:

  • Outdated looking site
  • No uptime guarantee
