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.
Good pricing on excellent hardware and network connectivity.

I have been using Hivelocity for around 6 months now and have been a very happy customer. I am pretty picky when it comes to hosting providers. I want to be able to customize my systems in a very specific manner, and I also... More want a host who has good peering relationships and knowledgeable customer support. Hivelocity has delivered on all three of these.
They were able to quickly provision my system from their easy to use portal, and support was very responsive when I had questions about hardware provisioning as well as for other networking related issues. I am also very happy that they provide native IPv6 to my systems which is another primary requirement for my systems. The network performance has been fantastic, and the fact that they have a presence at 1 Wilshire in LA is also another huge bonus for me.

Credit card scam!
James Maynard,

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.

They don't care about their loyal customers

Hivelocity used to be good. They had a great a customer service and support, but now they lost it. I am a long time user of their services and its quality is now longer good. I moved from SoftLayer to Hivelocity many years ag... More o. I was used to a first class service at SoftLayer and at that time Hivelocity didn't disappoint me. They price was just right and my account manager was always in touch with me. They even had a lifetime affiliate program which made bring some customers along with me. Now their support simply doesn't care anymore. The "lifetime" affiliate program has come to an end and they refuse to pay me the money I am entitled to receive. If you are considering Hivelocity, please look somewhere else. They are not who they used to be anymore... Less
