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.
Best decision ever

I can set up servers optimised for WordPress (or stack you like) with just a few clicks + the ability to SSH in and use CLI as well. Super fast servers & excellent support!

Horrible Support
Javad Ebrahimpour,

My feedback is that your service / support is too poor, which I will publish as my review, more than a year ago I moved from another one to IONOS for a better price and when needed help realized the mistake I did so I am movi... More ng back to the previous one, paying a bit more expensive but I have the standard support.
It would be good if one day IONOS educates its support team and takes care of customers as they deserve. I have read comments on different platforms (Twitter, YouTube, etc) and I am not the only one disappointed! So something is very wrong with your support team.

Pretty pricey for SHARED VPS
dan marley,
4.0
forget it that you get "VPS" or "MANAGED" its just plain shared VPS if you wont go with amazon or google cloud.
SO BASICLLY YOU PAYING HIGH PRICES FOR SHARED HOSTING WITHOUT ANY BENEFITS.
everything cost there money, plain "... More upgrade" if you want it to handle woocomerce as pricey as kinsta or any other service.
Support isn't really knowlegebale so..
GOING back to my previous host.
