Nope! Nothing's compulsory. We value your time and want to support you when you need it. No need for weekly meetings or milestone presentations. However, we do believe in open communication to understand and meet your needs.

Not at all! It won't cost you a thing to be part of the program. If you decide to keep using IONOS services afterwards, you'll only be billed for usage once your credits are used up. But don't worry, we'll keep you informed about your current status. And if you ever want to leave the program, there are no risks involved. We're here to meet your needs without burdening you with contractual obligations.
