Helpful Team
Shaheer Jacobs,

I've been through many south african web hosts, but find that Hostking is awesome. I had one major hiccup with my website where I broke it by installing a caching plugin into my wordpress and they were willing to help. I like... More that they are 24/7 as I can also count on someone to be around when needed using their live chat. I also have no issues with the speed of my website. It runs nice and fast. Keep up the good work guys Less
Great support

Very fast response, and great listeners. Their support tickets are easy to follow and their support team have great attention to detail and are very helpful and concise. Very glad I moved my sites over to A2 Hosting.

Within 4 weeks HostKings service level slipped so far down to disconnect a paid account without notice, disrupting file and data transfer badly. Asking myself, is this a new revenge policy for leaving? I noticed recently a si... More gnificant drop in service quality and decided to change to another host. Your behavior is now childish and changed from bad service to disgusting. Less
The worst service ever, stay away

For every problem you have they will ask you to upgrade to vps, even you can’t set your cron job to run every 5 minutes for this to happen you need a vps , stay away
