10 years with IONOS
Anthony Candelario,

I've worked with this company for ten years, and I utilize their managed WordPress products in addition to their virtual servers. Never experienced downtime or problems besides those of my own making. They provide the best cu... More stomer service around. The price point is lower in my opinion and really competitive. Outstanding value for the money. Less

Core Functionality is Gone - It's a Garage Sale Now
Zachary Grissom,

Even after 1and1 sold to Ionos the site was still functional.
Yesterday, I went to create a new Wordpress installation and they are trying so desperately to sell you things that they have actually hidden a simple Wordpress i... More nstallation. Now they have people cold calling me that are extremely pushy. When I told them I was frustrated with the service I was told "I wasn't fun and that I have a negative attitude" because I didn't want to try their website builder for free. Do not use this service! It's Yahoo before Google came along. Less
Great support, less features

Mail and acces to website should be the the main services that this provider must give to the customers. They do, but when problems appear, "sadly it's like this on shared servers, we can't do anything". So if you want soluti... More ons, they propose you to get a Hybrid or dedicated server. Like saying "we give you a service, but it's not 100% sure it will work". Especially with the new custom made software called "N0C", a proprietary software that Planet Hoster test on his live clients. Mails are blocked, sites are blocked. They have a sort of Captcha to unlock yourself, but that thingy was not tested and it's not working, so infinite Captcha displayed.
Bad experience, that I don't want to repeat, not for me, not for my clients. It was OK 10 years ago, now, the costs must be too big for actual number of customers, so "some must go". I don't mind paying more for a great service, thay know to do it since they were doing that in the past.
