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.
Awesome hosting

I switched to servercheap from digitalocean and never looked back. 100% uptime in 4 month speaks for itself, even digitalocean couldn't do that, and on top I am paying 50% less.

This got to be one of the disappointing thing ever
Nyumna kwetu,

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
Rude service + Read the fine print
Space boy,
4.8
I find their marketing very misleading. I signed up for the service (over other providers) because their website said "7 Day Money Back. Try us risk free for 7 days. If you are not satisfied for any reason, we will grant a ... More full refund, no questions asked". Well, read the fine print. It's only the first server. I ordered a few. The TOS is buried much farther down the UX flow. When I asked for my money back after < 2 days, they gave me a very strongly worded rejection followed by an even ruder response. Clearly, I was not trying to abuse their service, they just convinced me to buy more with their "guarantee". If you are a current customer, be warned that their support may get hostile. Never had such a rudely written support message before in recent memory. They should be called "ServiceCheap". Less
