Das unabhängige Vergleichsportal Netzsieger.de hat den Webhosting-Tarif Expert M getestet und mit "Sehr gut" ausgezeichnet.
Quote: "Das Webhosting Paket Expert M von Netcup stellt die kleinste Version der Expert-Paketreihe dar. Das bereitgestellte E-Mail- und Speichervolumen kann aber gerade Einsteiger und Nutzer mit geringem Kapazitätsbedarf überzeugen, vor allem da der Preis entsprechend geringer ausfällt. Netcup selbst bietet für seine Produkte einen umfangreichen Support. Mit einer 30 Tage Zufriedenheitsgarantie gibt es schlussendlich keinen Grund mehr, Webhosting von Netcup nicht wenigstens zu testen. Denn wer innerhalb von 30 Tagen nach der Bestellung mit seinem Tarif nicht zufrieden ist, kann diesen zurückgeben und erhält die komplette Grundgebühr zurück." Full article >
