I have a VPN account from a couple of…

I have a VPN account from a couple of years.

From time to time, due my complete lack of experience, I contact the customer service and all of them are really good.

Anyway today I'd like to give 6 stars to Anna S. because she did not 'only' solved my problems but in a way that also somebody unexperienced like me could understand easily ( English is not my first language too).

She also walked the extra mile finding, without being asked, some bad files that I had to cancel.
No one told me to delete them before.

I am very grateful that my problems today were treated with attention and care and a bit of 'extra' that it is so rare this days.

Thank you very much again :)

Excellent responsive helpdesk. Great service!

Great service, super speedy helpdesk. Good range of hosting products at reasonable prices. I've been with them for years and have never had any issues.

There is no one else.

I've been with knownhost for about 10 years, and I just can't say enough good things. The servers are solid and reliable, but where they really shine is the service. When I turn in a ticket, I hear back in only a minute or two at most, and it doesn't matter if it's during normal hours, the wee hours of the morning, or even on a holiday. They're always there. These days most hosting companies can throw up some decent servers, but they can't provide service and support like this. Not only are they quick, and efficient, but they're willing to help with anything I have ever asked, be it something small that I just can't get to, or the times that I'm in over my head and really need some help. I can depend on them no matter what. How can you put a price on that?

Better Than Excellent!

I have been with Knownhost for nearly ten years and have two VPS's with them one being on an SSD.
I cannot fault this company, they have been incredibly fast with support tickets (under two minutes response time and often within one minute) zero downtime and fast responsive servers.

On the rare occasion that I have had any issues their support team have been friendly, efficient and incredibly helpful even when major server upgrades were required they kept me fully informed and worked with me all of the way.

I had used other hosting companies previously and always had issues, either with downtime, service or support but this all changed when I moved to Knownhost, I am no expert with server technology and often find my knowledge lacking in certain areas, thankfully Knownhost support guys fully understand and are fantastic at guiding me to the answers and the best solutions.

Let me first say

Let me first say, I can be a real bonehead. That said, I've been a VPS customer for over 7 years, and can't say enough about the responsiveness and quality of support. It's the kind of support I wish I could get for everything I buy.

Best business partner

I've been using them for quite a while now and I like the fact that I have support if I need it. I can tend to do most everything myself but it's great knowing I have someone to ask if needed

First class service and no nonsense

I have been with Knownhost for a couple of years only after trying 3 other US based companies. I am always amazed at their quick and efficient 24/7 support. Their prices are also extremely competitive. If you think you can save a few bucks by being on a shared cloud server think again as being on Knownhost's VPS is the way forward. Shared hosting have so many tricks to get you to pay more or a forced upgrade. Don't be fooled. Thank you to the Knownhost team!

Pretty good overall service and support

I've been a client for more than 5 years. The VPS are a good product with great price/quality.

The times that I had to contact support they've been very good at it (not canned responses).

Then at times they have been proactive to solve problems with my server, avoiding me further problems.

VPS with a peace of mind

Have been using their services for a bit over a year now with not even one complaint. No downtime, support is excellent and 24/7.
Before I found these guys, I used 3 other VPS providers. Some had excess downtimes and some lacked the support I needed.
Knownhost are really an elite company. I can sit back a relax knowing my websites are in good hands.

Customer 3 Years

I'm seriously impressed by Knownhost. I have their VPS2 product get a pay ahead discount so that knocks the cost down even more. Their pricing is on par with other hosts out there but their uptime is the impressive part. I literally question the monitoring service when I get an alert because it's usually one ping that failed and when I go to my site(s) on my phone they work.

I'm actually considering rewriting the api for an app I created from ASP.NET WebAPI to NodeJS just so I can host my app with Knownhost... I have my app with Microsoft Azure and their product is about 3 times as much and way slower. It would be about a 400 hour ordeal to rewrite the entire backend, still it's being considered.

Fantastic Servers, Affordable and First Class support

I have been using various web hosting companies since 2007. Knownhost is among the ones I have used and still using ,and I can wholeheartedly recommend them .

--Support is First Class
--Price is affordable-
--Uptime is excellent. infact they even display their live(real time) statistic on their website for you to see.
---server response time in various location is super and is within the industry standard.

All websites technical problems have always been resolved within minutes, and i was always updated whilst they resolve them.

If you are looking for a web hosting company-read my honest reviews and make a wise decision
Trustpilot,this is a customer review ,and I can supply receipts and other records to support my review.

Affordable Managed VPS Hosting

The provides the best web hosting services. In case you are not satisfied with their services they have 30 days money back guarantee. But trust me you will not be wanting your money back. This is because they have 99.9% uptime, best in the industry. I recommend it.

Worst hosting experience ever.

Worst hosting experience ever.

My sites were constantly being hacked as compared to similar sites on a different host (based in Australia) that never seemed to be attacked.

Their so called customer service consists of lots of cut and paste emails mainly.

They had the audacity to take my site down on a Friday evening due to what they termed a phishing risk - had they checked they would have seen that I have removed the infected files.

Because their "abuse team" only work bank hours - monday to friday, 9am-5pm - it meant my site was down the entire weekend. My client was having melt downs.

Pleas to the "support team" were ignored - in fact they seemed to revel in the power they had over me.

A really horrible, awful experience dealing with these guys.

Totally unprofessional. I couldnt advise more strongly to look elsewhere.

Yes they are cheap and like most things in life, you absolutely get what you pay for.

Average VPS taken down by ddos and brute force attack

Having been with knownhost two years, I came to know them as a knowledgeable crew, that is until the 28th Jan 2017 when they failed to stop a Ddos attack on the server my website were on, firstly I was told it was a brute force attack and then a Ddos attack that slipped by their security protocols, taking all my websites offline.

After this date things just gradually got worse, with more down time, with excuses ranging from script issues and more, it got to the point where they talked me into upgrading my memory at additional cost telling me it would help keep my websites up and running smoother.

After speaking to my script dev he informed me that their VPS was very inadequate and he recommended me to find a new host asap.

All together I have 48 tickets with 90% of them either regarding hosting speed or downtime or database connection issues.

Only once in my time with them have they suddenly jumped onboard offering to adjust the server and try upgrades, but this was after I suggested i'd be looking for hosting else where.

Today I contacted Knownhost to cancel my hosting with them and ask for a refund for the month I had paid up front for on the 1st.

This was point black refused, so they are now walking away with over $101 of money for nothing.

Knownhost HORRIBLE service

Their support is terrible, so much time wasted EVERY time we open a ticket. Too much back and forth due to their inefficiencies and complete lack of process and consistency. We will be taking our business elsewhere, and I suggest anyone that relies on tech support to do the same. There are tons of hosting companies out there, no need to tolerate this.
