Long time customer
Laura Sedor,

I’ve been a customer of IONOS for years and am satisfied with the service I receive. If I have a problem, someone is there to assist personally shortly. The hosting is stable and easy to use.

Credit card scam!
James Maynard,
2.4
Ionos is a credit card scam. Their convoluted contracts hide hidden charges and their actions are illegal,
I will be reporting them to the FTC, the SEC, credit card fraud divisions of European police, and I will be informin... More g all their board members and largest stockholders of their documented credit card fraud.
DO NOT USE IONOS if you don't want your credit card stolen.

The worst e-mail and domain hosting service
Hakan Esin,
3.6
We have been using their services for a while. Our e-mails and domain are going down all of a sudden without any notice, any apology, or any information. 2 times in the same week, our whole corporate e-mails went down, and th... More e first one last for 4 days. We get no explanation and no timeline other than their saying "we are performing emergency maintenance". This is totally unacceptable. They do not know anything about professionalism. Call center is only accessible during US working hours. Live chat is NOT LIVE, you have to leave a message!!! And when you are even able to chat by chance, all you get is "We are performing maintenancae". Less
