Ionos Hosting Server – a reliable hosting provider

web hosting

As a developer I have been using many hosting providers such as GoDaddy, Bluehost, WpEngine and many other shared and dedicated servers. Recently I have used the 1&1 IONOS server and I felt it a bit different from other hosting servers. Initially it was harder for me to manage but now if you ask me i will surely suggest this server for my clients. Let me take you on a tour of the 1k &1 Ionos server and lets discuss about the advantages of Ionos server. Talking about the history 1&1 started its journey since 1998 and in 2018 it was renamed as 1&1 Ionos.

Now Ionos has become the leading hosting and cloud Partner Company in Europe. They have around 8 million customers contract and 12 million domains now. In 2018 they have combined their services such as web hosting, applications and server product lines with the ProfitBrick’s cloud infrastructure.

Their mission of success continues through millions of satisfied customers.
Let’s now move on to the Ionos user interface. The home page itself showcases variety of services offered by them.

That includes Domain & SSL, Email service, Websites and shops, Hosting, Cloud server, Security solution, HiDrive, My account etc. Let’s go through each service in detail. Domains and SSL section contains all details about website domains. Domain filter option is available at the top where users can search by contract also. The DNS, name servers, Renewal and all main options are available under domain settings. The server also provides unlimited sub domain option.

Email management is very easy through Ionos. Ionos provides unlimited Emails. The variations include Basic mail, Mail basic and business, and Microsoft Exchange 2019. Business Email option helps to boost your brand with a customized email address. With Microsoft exchange Ionos offer server maintenance and security also.

Websites and shops is the section where you can see the websites. Under websites you can create new sites and manage content there. With shop feature you can create and set up an online store. Hosting services includes Web Hosting, WordPress Hosting and ASP.NET Hosting. Professional Hosting includes Web Hosting For Agencies, WordPress Pro, Dedicated Hosting and VPS and Hosting.

Ionos provides inbuilt security services. They do automatic website scan to protect the websites from malware and other malicious threats. Security warnings will be displayed in the dashboard. Not all other hosting provides this feature. Spam email protection feature is also there.

HiDrive is cloud service by Ionos. Here customers can save data in cloud storage. HiDrive can be accessed from any device, anytime. There is no limitation for the data upload, it can be Excel, word, audio or video files. The data centers are located in US and Europe. That’s all about UI of Ionos server.


  • Offer a very cheap 12 month introductory offer 
  • Daily server backups, along with a wide range of available apps
  • Amazing customer service


  • Dated and unintuitive backend control panel
  • Not very beginner friendly
  • Some hidden/unexpected costs
  • Online reviews suggest help and support often falls short


As we conclude I strongly recommend the 1&1 Ionos hosting server for anyone. The cost is affordable also the performance is really good. The most important thing I noticed is the First byte time. When we compare website hosted in major hosting providers vs that of Ionos First byte is much better for Ionos hosting. It will help in speed up the website.

If you are planning to switch the server or buy a new hosting server go ahead with 1&1 Ionos hosting.
