Long time customer

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.
Im satisfied with offshore managed hosting services at HostPlay

Well, it happened so that I signed up with Hostplay about several years ago, because I had a long nightmare period with another host and while dealing with this offshore semi-dedicated hosting, I immediately got to know that ... More I had made the right choice.
Excellent uptime, very responsive support and most importantly - great speed.

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.

Be careful with this hosting

Be careful with this hosting. They are scammers. I paid 3 months in advance and they stole my money. Warez-Host and HostPlay are the same group of scammers.
