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.
Amazing Service and excellent value

I wish I had found Black.Host a long time ago. it's so good that as well as hosting the main project with them, I am now thinking of taking an additional "play around" server with them for some of the other minor websites and... More projects - and migrating away from our old host altogether. Something I did not anticipate doing.
We had an issue with some *Third Party* code and I was truly stunned that they (Thomas Nuchatel) actually debugged the code for me and brought the site back online when I was struggling to make it work properly.
Really did not expect that level of support at all, especially as our server is fairly modest at the moment. Excellent performance but one of the more inexpensive options.
If you want very fast hosting with a brilliant "Can Do" attitude, I strongly suggest you check these folks out. The hardware works very well - but it is the aftersales that has won me over as a loyal customer for the long term.
It's good to find a company you actually feel you can depend on if you need it - and if your business REVOLVES around reliable hosting - these are the ones.

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.

Do not use Blackhost
Cameron Sheppard,

"Hello ,
due to the way how your order looks, we can't accept it on our network, as it's very likely this hosting to be used as botnet controller.
We're deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused, and we're looking forward to ... More have you as client for some future projects.
All the best!"
Took my money, nor refund, no evidence of me hosting said "botnet controller" I never even got the service running. Absolutely useless, I will never consider using them again. Absolutely fuming.
