Fixed billing issue.
Ryan Jhon,

Thank you for fixing my billing issue. Although I shouldn't have had to jump through hoops for a resolution. Also please don't use your self-imposed policies as an excuse not to help a customer.
Unbelievable tech support

I've used numerous web hosting companies over the years and I've left most of them due to bad tech support - KnownHost has the best tech support I've experienced in my 20+ years of web hosting.

Never use this hosting, all your work will be lost!

My forum is not only down since 5 Days, they also deleted all the files from the File Manager, so I don't even have a Backup to move my forum to another Host!
And they don't take responsibility or give any explanation of what... More happened, they just ignore you.
Oh, but the Invoices keep coming to pay for something that don't work.
Think twice before go with this host.

Claimed profile - Hasn’t replied to negative reviews
Well doesn't that say it all!
Negative support (basics only)
Superficial!
Arrogant and if you have any real needs they will just brush you OFF and AWAY!
So many limitations... More (hidden) and not WP friendly.
STAY AWAY from those SMALL hosting company!
