Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is 1 & 1 now Ionos?

Ionos was formerly known as 1 & 1 when it was founded in 1988. After expanding its operations from Germany to the U.S., 1 & 1 became 1 & 1 Ionos in 2018. And then finally Ionos in 2020.

2. Is Ionos better than Strato?

Ionos is a better host and a solid Strato competitor because the company provides better support, a wider server footprint, an easier-to-use user interface, and cheaper hosting services.

3. Can I transfer my website to Ionos or Strato?

Yes, you can. You’ll have to sign up and become a customer on Ionos first though. After that, you’ll need to prepare your domain transfer and then use the auth code to initiate the transfer. The great thing about Ionos is the company retains your domain subscription period from your former host.

4. What are some great Strato and Ionos alternatives?

Some good Strato alternatives and Ionos alternatives are GoDaddy, Bluehost, Namecheap, Hostinger, and Hostgator.
