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 Technical Support

1 month ago I purchased Magento hosting from Krystal hosting. they really helped me a lot to set up my business. I do not come from a technical background but I didn't face any problem to setting up my business because it of... More fers the best knowledge resources & supportive customer support. For my other website, I purchased 1 domain from GoDaddy & WordPress hosting from Domain Racer. These companies assure me that non-technical people can also build the best online business. Less

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.

Hello James,
Unfortunately, we will no longer be providing you with a hosting service in the new year.
Also note i started paying £2.99 a month and it went up to £10 a month. I advise staying away from this company
Plea... More se accept this as notice we will end your hosting subscription in 7 days (30th December 2019).
We will ensure that you are refunded in full any remaining time on your hosting service and our support team will provide backups of your data if you require them, to ease your transition to another hosting provider.
Please accept my most sincere apologies for any inconvenience this might cause. We wish you the very best for the future.
Kind Regards
Dave Kimberley
Company COO
