1&1 Internet and ProfitBricks become IONOS by 1&1

New personal consultant for all customers / comprehensive range of solutions from domains to enterprise cloud / business apps for small to mid-sized businesses
Karlsruhe / Berlin, 29 October 2018
1&1, a leading web hosting provider, is joining forces with ProfitBricks, the German specialist for cloud infrastructure solutions, to form IONOS by 1&1, the ideal partner for online success. Through the launch of this new brand, customers will now have the opportunity to use a free, personal consultant who can answer all product and contract questions.
IONOS by 1&1 is the first web hosting provider that will be able to guide companies through all of the phases and milestones of their development – from creating their first website, to establishing an online store, and launching their own servers through 1&1’s self-developed enterprise cloud infrastructure. Companies will also have the opportunity to use numerous cloud applications that will best support their business needs.
Founded in 1988, 1&1 quickly became the leading hosting provider in Germany and is active in more than ten countries across the globe. IONOS by 1&1 operates its own data centers in the United States and Europe, which comply with the highest European security and data protection guidelines.
In 2010, Achim Weiss founded ProfitBricks, Germany's first provider focusing on IaaS solutions. Previously, Weiss served as a Chief Technology Officer at 1&1 for ten years. ProfitBricks was acquired by 1&1’s parent company United Internet AG in 2017 and is now merging under the new IONOS by 1&1 brand. As CEO of IONOS by 1&1, Achim Weiss will be responsible for the overall strategy and product development of the new company.
"At 1&1, I personally experienced and helped shaping the growth from a small internet startup to an international provider. With IONOS by 1&1, we can now strategically combine the strengths of the European hosting market leader and eight years of enterprise cloud expertise ," says Achim Weiss.
"Through our new personal consultant, which is available to all customers worldwide free of charge, we are not only demonstrating that the customer is truly the focus of our corporate philosophy, but also pledging them with an offer that no other provider currently renders."
IONOS by 1&1 replaces the 1&1 Internet and ProfitBricks brands in Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Austria, Spain and the United States. Other companies of the 1&1 group offering DSL, mobile internet, and high-speed fiber-optic connections in Germany are not affected by this merger.
