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.
Ashish is awesome

Ashish saved the day once again. We had an issue with mysql. Ashish spotted it and rectified it. Highly recommended. The guys are quick to respond with any issues encountered. Keep up the Great work

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.

You are locked with them
Sohail Ahmed,

We had a terrible experience with Host4Geeks and once we decided to move to a new provider, they disabled the backup option in cPanel to make it difficult for us to migrate. We had around 20 cPanels and they said they won't p... More rovide backup. Later they asked for a bribe of $2 per cPanel to provide backup! A provider who can fall this cheap doesn't deserve to be called a reputable host. Once, you move with them, you are locked for life. They will harass you if you complain about their service. Please do not purchase service from them. Less
