I am unable to find any good host with a physical presense in Germany but having web site in English. I found many good hosts but unfortunately all of them are in local language. I can't read/understand German :(

Could some advise me of some good hosts in local market with English version web site or sticky me.

Let me know if you find a good Deutschland hosting company. I'm looking for this also.

Some things to consider... what if you need tech support. Will there be a language barrier?

Can you think of any other downsides of going with a company that can't speak english well? Most Germans in the tech field can read/write english.

>>there are so many hosting in germany.

There are but all of them are in German. There is none in English. I think my only option is to host in USA somewhere and hope that search engines will pickup my German pages one day.

Do you think I will screw up by hosting a German website in USA?

1and1 seem to have a english site as well [order.1and1.com...]

they are not the cheapest and not the best but a big player and quite reliable.

If you place an order with 1and1, they host your web site in USA not Germany. I am still looking for one.

If you order at 1and1.co.uk you will be hosted on German IP addresses.

You should call their tech support and ask them to confirm it.

ADDED: I should point out that they are not the best but do an adequate job for many at a good price.

@marc75 ..
I dont think the link to your forum will stay up for long ( if you check the TOS here you'll see why ) ..
and unless raja4 reads german ( which I kind of get the idea he doesnt ) ..He wont be able to read your registration proceedure in order to register and make his post to ask anything in your fora ..

half the sites nav system bar is in english ..
but none of the registration proceedure is ..;-)

presumably the german hosting companies that you discuss dont want customers from outside the german speaking community ( which is odd considering that their banners "pre load" in english prior to their displaying ) ..

thought the EU was supposed to be about inclusion and community ..not exclusion via linguistics

www.1and1.co.uk does not accept US address/phone#
www.1and1.com hosts your sites in USA.

I am still looking for a host.

so you are not interested by regfish nor centron ( inspite of the fact that they as do many others ..host in germany ) ..

Sorry Leosghost. I did not read your previous post. Not sure, how I missed your suggestions.

Could you please sticky mail me the URLs of both site or any contact info that you have.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will look into both hosts.

Thanks Leasghost for the sticky mail. Much appreciated.

Just talked and I think I will go with centrons as their servers are in Frankfurt and tech support was replying to live chat in English.

The TOS I read for some months ago, and forgot that.
