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 host in the world, others who say otherwise are fools.

The best host in the world, others who say otherwise are fools. Been using ovh for over 10 years nothing else can compare, amazon and google are a joke compared to ovh, and could learn a lot from ovh.

Horrible Support

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.

Niestety mam coraz gorsze zdanie na temat OVH mimo ze jestem tu od wielu, wielu lat. Wszystko co nie jest standardem jest tutaj problemem. Proforma brak, odroczona płatność brak. Problem z kontem brak szybkiego rozwiązania. D... More zwonie do pomocy technicznej odbiera pomoc księgowa. Dodzwonienie sie do właściwego działu jest wyzwaniem bo po wybraniu tonowo opcji możemy usłyszeć to nie ta obsługa klienta wejdź na stronę i znajdz odpowiedni numer. Home, nazwa... obsługa klienta 24h i to dość miła a tutaj mamy wyznaczone godziny które i tak nie pokrywają się z informacjami na stronie. A w słuchawce przy rozmowie jakieś trzaski, przerwy... Dopóki wszystko działa to nawet jest ok ale załatwienie tu czegoś zniechęca do tej firmy. Co ciekawe w OVH wsparcie techniczne zawsze było słabą stroną i widzę że wcale nie jest lepiej Less

Winner: OVHcloud

Michael Levanduski Expert Hosting Writer & Tester

When comparing OVH and 1&1 it is important to note that these are two discount hosting providers, so price is going to often be more important than power or overall quality. Other than the fact that 1&1 does have a free hosting option, OVH’s prices tend to be lower, without sacrificing on the quality. OVH also does a great job at building their own datacenters, which gives them some significant advantages. These facts, plus the fact that OVH is rated higher in real user reviews, makes them our winner in this comparison.
