By far the best value and performance I've had
Daniel S,
9.2
I'm using their root servers (8GB DDR4 RAM) and never had any problems. The performance is just plain awesome and that one time I had a problem regarding the GDPR the support answered very fast and friendly.
To clarify, you d... More o need to have some knowledge on how to set up a server, but who is renting a server without that kind of knowledge anyways?
I never had any billing problems either. Of course you have to check the contract, but for VPS e.g. there is no minimum rental time, you can cancel the server after 10hrs of usage without any problem for example and only pay for those 10 hours.

Repo And Other Negative Items Removed From My re[port In 9days!!!
Corbin Ridley,

One of the most important items in your financial life is your credit report. Your credit report contains information about where you live and work, how you pay your bills, whether you have been sued, had a lien filed against... More you, or have filed for bankruptcy, whether you are qualified for a loan or not. I had a good score (692) I was planning on getting our home by the end of this year. Everything changed when I lost my job earlier this year and missed out on some payments. I then went through a nasty repossession which dropped my credit score by over 100 points. A realtor I’ve been in contact with introduced me to this live saver, (METRONET CREDIT SOLUTION) out of my desperation to fulfill my promise to my family I contacted them. They were very responsive and professional, after 9days I pulled my credit report as I was told. I was amazed when I saw my score had risen to 761, all negative items had been wiped. I can’t stop thanking them for fulfilling my dreams of getting our own house this year. Please contact them via metronetcreditsolution@gmail.com or call their helpline 205 518 3032. Don’t forget to mention me, you can thank me later. Less

Worst company ever - do not touch with a bargepole!
Very Disappointed,

TLDR; Pick someone else as your hosting provider and heed all the other negative reviews about this organisation. Learn from my own mistake and thoroughly do your homework. If what they offer sounds too good to be true, you c... More an bet that it is. Avoid doing business with netcup under any circumstances, no exceptions.
netcup came to me recommended as a company with excellent hosting and service. They have massively fallen short of that promise and have been an absolute nightmare to deal with. If you plan to chose them for your hosting needs, be prepared to spend an inordinate amount of time fighting about spurious charges, quibbling over semantics and waiting for delayed responses from their support team. That said, expect correspondence from them when you owe them money: your head will absolutely spin with the speed with which their email hits your inbox!
Hosting-wise the performance of their servers is reasonable but not the best that I've seen. For the most part, I've found it to be reliable although I've had lots of unresolved issues with other ISPs blocking mail originating from the netcup hosted server IP address range. And despite assurances to the contrary, this issue has never been adequately resolved by the netcup team, which is a nuisance and paints you in a very unprofessional light when you are a reseller and your own customers cannot send mail without it bouncing. If you need reliable email, route your email through a third-party.
Generally speaking, their service team is friendly although the only avenue available for support is email or calling their German support number. They do not offer a ticketing system like many of their competitors do, and email threads get very colvoluted with multiple agents providing support in varying levels of comprehendible English.
Expect most of their documentation to hit your desk in German - despite repeated requests to provide it in English. For the most part, however, Google Translate is your friend if you're prepared to put up with running everything through a translation service.
One of the biggest and most costly annoyances - and perhaps where they make up their margins on their low-cost hosting - is that payments can only be effected via a direct bank transfer or via Paypal. The former almost always results in some or other issue for which you will be charged. If you challenge or otherwise do not pay the unfair charges, expect threats of being handed over to one or collection agency. Based on other reviews, I have no doubt that they make good on their threats.
One final point and it's not something that I've ever had to deal with for any other hosting service I've purchased: if you plan to cancel any of their hosting services, be prepared to pay for a further two months. Netcup requires one full month notice and no matter how you spin this, it works out to two additional payments.

Avoid Fast Comet please.
Dave Andrews,

They are constantly deceitful. Claim you can send 50mb attachments but forget to tell you they encrypt all mail and a 30mb attachments fails. Say they give you 1000mb mail space but dont tell you encrytion uses that space so ... More you only get like 650mb of space per email account. Cloudflare is constantly looping preventing you from logving in. Live chat support tries to put blame on your end and rarely solves problems, just blames then on your software or machine ( "works on my end"). Use anybody else. Less
