Free website hosting means that IONOS will run your website on its servers and you don’t have to pay a cent for it. When you opt for one of our MyWebsite packages, we’ll throw in free website hosting, how does that sound? Hosting your website with IONOS has many benefits including 99.9% uptime, scalable performance management, fast page loading times, and protection against cyber attacks, to name but a few.

Yes, with IONOS. Some free hosts offer very basic security features, and you may have to pay to upgrade for more secure features such as an SSL/TLS certificate. This isn’t the case with IONOS as you have all the security you need right from the start. DDoS protection ensures your website is safe from any incoming cyber attacks. The advanced server-side security helps keep your site up and running no matter what happens. The free website hosting package also contains a Wildcard SSL Certificate, enabling you to secure your website with HTTPS.

For extra peace of mind, there are also regular backups, enabling you to recover files from restore points if anything is deleted or lost.

Yes. With IONOS, it’s possible to enjoy free website hosting without having to register a domain since all IONOS MyWebsite plans include a free domain with the website building kit. However, you can also link your project to any other web address as soon as you have added it to your contract.

Yes. Free website hosting is usually associated with an abundance of advertisements since the web provider needs to make their money back. Luckily with IONOS, you don’t have to worry about ads popping up that having nothing to do with your website. Our free website hosting is not just free regarding the cost, but also free of ads.

Unlike many other providers who offer web space for free, IONOS does not currently offer a completely free option. But thanks to the MyWebsite packages, you have the possibility to try out our free web space for yourself.

We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee:

Within the first 30 days, you can cancel at any time if you’re not happy with our services. You will get your money back straightaway. You don’t even have to state your reasons for the cancelation. The money-back guarantee applies to all our web hosting plans. It is part of the IONOS principle because your satisfaction is our priority. Not only can you try our web space for free, but you can also test many IONOS products for 30 days.

With completely free hosting from other providers, it’s sometimes difficult to get help if you have a technical problem. Part of the IONOS principle is that you only have to make one call and you will be connected to one of our experts who will take care of all your questions. This means that you will be helped quickly and competently. Our support is there for you 24 hours a day.
