AWS Free Tier Scam, No wonder how Jeff Bezos is getting richer and richer, by scamming people with AMAZON Web services. Actually not just AWS, I believe all amazon services are SCAM. First they are sending emails to "Try out ... Rohkem AWS with free tier" services. All was i did tried launching 2 instances via Terraform Cloud for my study. And next month i got charged 8.50 SGD to my account, (I didn't even use the instances after launch. But Don't worry Amazon, you can only fool people once. Vähem

Even after 1and1 sold to Ionos the site was still functional.
Yesterday, I went to create a new Wordpress installation and they are trying so desperately to sell you things that they have actually hidden a simple Wordpress i... Rohkem nstallation. Now they have people cold calling me that are extremely pushy. When I told them I was frustrated with the service I was told "I wasn't fun and that I have a negative attitude" because I didn't want to try their website builder for free. Do not use this service! It's Yahoo before Google came along. Vähem

  • Shared Hosting: While shared hosting is generally suitable for smaller websites, it provides enough scalability and flexibility to cater to larger sites as well.

  • Dedicated Hosting: This type of hosting provides dedicated resources and powerful hardware, ensuring increased speed, more secure data storage, and advanced software configurations.
  • WordPress Hosting: Best for all kinds of WordPress blogs and websites.
  • Agency Hosting: Suited for agency owners.

AWS Pricing Plans

AWS provides pricing plans for the following options:

  • VPS Hosting: Best for companies with high website traffic or larger applications, such as online stores and databases that demand higher levels of security and performance.
  • Cloud Hosting: Best for serverless platforms, containerization, DevOps automation tools, and more.

And the Winner Is… Ionos

Ionos offers a variety of affordable pricing options for all kinds of users to host their websites whereas AWS pricing is a little more complicated and difficult to understand.

 

Round 3: Website performance (Uptime & Speed)

Uptime refers to the time that a website or server is operational and available for use. A website’s speed and load time can affect both the user experience and search engine rankings.

A website that lags or is frequently down, creates frustration for users, which can drive them away and harm traffic and revenue. Conversely, a swift and dependable site elevates the user experience and boosts customer satisfaction – resulting in greater profits!

Ionos Uptime & Speed

Ionos load speed on GMetrix is 795 ms TTFB and a performance score of 75%.

Final: Ionos Vs AWS

AWS Uptime & Speed

AWS didn’t perform up to the mark on both speed tests.

On GTMetrix, the performance score was 60% with 108ms TTFB.

Final: Ionos Vs AWS

Despite the amazing load speed of 0.4 s TTFB, the overall score on PageSpeed Insights lags behind at 52%, which is slightly above the ‘poor score category’.

Final: Ionos Vs AWS

And the Winner Is…Ionos

None of them performed exceptionally well when we did the speed tests and checked the performance scores. However, Ionos still performed much better than AWS.

Final: Ionos Vs AWS

AWS offers an enormous range of features and customization options. For users who are not familiar with configuring and managing virtual servers, navigating the dashboard and cpanel can be quite tricky.

AWS provides manual configuration guidance for users that prefer to customize their set up settings. Overall, understanding the intricacies of AWS hosting may still be challenging for novice users.

And the Winner Is…Ionos

AWS hosting can be quite difficult to understand for non-technical people. You should stick to Ionos if you’re looking for a hassle-free, easy-to-use hosting platform.

AWS Security

AWS offers a suite of security features to ensure that the hosting experience is safe and secure for its users. AWS implements multilayered encryption with an extensive physical infrastructure, allowing customers to choose the protection they require and encrypt data, move it around, and manage retention as needed.

Data that passes across the AWS global network is automatically encrypted before leaving their secure environments.

And the Winner Is…AWS

AWS wins this round as it handles incredibly robust applications on its servers and hence provides top-notch security.

 

Round 7: Server locations

If you have a primarily local audience, it may be beneficial to choose a hosting platform with servers located in close proximity to your target audience. On the other hand, if your audience is worldwide, the location of the server may be less important.

Ionos Server location

Ionos has its servers in U.S.A and Europe in the following locations:

  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Newark, NJ
  • London, UK
  • Frankfurt, Berlin (Germany)
  • Logroño, Spain
