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.
I've never had a service like this.

I've never had a service like this. They are fast, reliable and solid and prices are quite competitive for me. Their control panel SPanel is simple and user-friendly. +100 to them.

Don't waste your money
Mary Buorno,

What I like is the price and the servers never seem to fail.
What I don't like is the lies they market. You won't have support because every time you click on support, the website asks you to login (despite already being logg... More ed in) and puts you through a continual loop. You're suppose to have wordpress come with ionos for free, but there is no way to do this without paying wordpress huge monthly fees. Their website builder is terrible, you can't do much with it and it just doesn't run very well.
Honestly, just save your time and money by going to dreamhost - they are WAY better.

Beware of this company dont believe any fake reviews
I purchased managed vps hosting from this hosting company and after receiving my payment they refused to activate my account they said until I send them a picture of the cr... More edit card, i did that and since then I've been laying complaints they have not even replied to one.
I think this company is a fraud I mean what will they do with my credit card details and even after submitting all of that i raised several support tickets and they refused to even reply me.
Please stay away from them.
