Great service

Great Service. I will use it forever, I hope.
I will recommend it to all of my colleagues.
I hope I do not have any problems in the future.
When I make money, I will consider upgerading.
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.

Digital media site and Blue Host
Evan Cohen,

Blue Host is a journey and not a means to an end with web hosting html and word press. I am seeing the difference every day with html and css online.
not responsive- bad support

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!
