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.
Best I've used

I've been running a personal and business website for myself and wife for over 20 years. Tried a number of providers and switched to Linode about 3 years ago. Best price and stability than prior providers I've used.
I'm using... More a Nanode as all my sites are low volume. If you are comfortable with Linux administration its a good deal. Less

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.

Bad reputation and blocked on many providers
Zulfiqar Hussain,

Took out hosting with this company as recommended by developers from India. Any emails generated by the server are either blocked or end up in spam with international email providers. Tried this with Microsoft exchange acc... More ounts and btinternet. User registration emails are blocked. Tried for several weeks to resolve, seems to be OK if you are in India but UK providers block or treat all emails as spam. Paid for hosting, not likely to get my money back. Now changed to Go daddy and hoping that will be better. Less
