netcup support experience
Netcup’s support is great. Netcup is available by email and by phone and I have never waited in line for more than 15 minutes.
netcup has a 3.8 rating on trustpilot and rates as good as all negative reviews. This is a good rating for a hosting company. The netcup alternative Hetzner has 3.1 as a comparison.
My Netcup experience
I am really satisfied with Netcup. However, there was a phase where the failures accumulated and I was not satisfied with the speed. At that time, I looked around for a Netcup alternative.
However, then came a last announced outage for only 5 minutes, which significantly improved the speed of my website. Since then, there was no further outage and I am still with netcup and now completely satisfied again.
