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

This got to be one of the disappointing thing ever

This got to be one of the disappointing thing where they charge you and after you pay the shut down your site. When you call the managers are always in meeting. If you want to have headaches just sign up and you will see.
The... More y go into your account and delete all the pictures and other important data. Biggest headache and no support just the word sorry as if that will solve the problem. Less

We have received a report of Spam originating from your Lin... More ode. This is most likely the result of a system compromise. If we have not heard from you in 24 hours, we may need to place network restrictions on your Linode to prevent further abuse.
