Cool hosting
Bakk Bence,
9.2
This is the cheapest hosting I ever seen, I got some problems with it but it got solved quickly thanks to the support. I upgraded my VPS recently, and they offered an option that I can keep all my data, the update was pretty ... More quick. Their offers are so cool, I can recommend this hosting to everyone. Less
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.

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!
