I am using VPS for all my sites since 2015 and i used known January 2017. I have been with many hosts like hostgator, arvixe, bluehost, godaddy but KnownHost stands out completely. Many other big shots give you an option to c... More all or live chat, but Knownhost gives you the support that no one else gives. You log in a ticket, they will show you approximate time for someone to take your ticket. It is about 1-2 minutes most of the times, 3 minutes rarely and it never went beyond 4 minutes.
I believe the management of this company knows what customers want. I definitely 100% recommend Knownhost. Also, they will give you 30% lifetime discount with some coupon. Unfortunately i dont remember the coupon, but they give out 30% discount for sure. Even on monthly subscription.
Do try them, they are awesom. Whole team rocks!

Worst Web Hosting Company
Mukesh Chauhan,

hi All
I must say Glosting is worst web hosting company, Last year the name of the company was Gayati services and now it has changed to Pinaaki Infolabs LLP. As per new company it forced me to either change to new plans or p... More ay as per their demand that is huge amount. Last year they said for UNLIMITED HOSTING PLAN (that time it was ENTERPRISE PLAN) you will get XYZ% discount now they said company is changed & present company Pinaaki will decide. If every year company will change then who will rely or trust on the GLOSTING.com Less
Dreadful support - site down for 3 days
Tony Featherstone,

Worst mistake of my life was signing up with these guys. One of my accounts was hacked and their abuse team sent me an email alerting me to the files that were malicious. I deleted all of them except one (which I missed by mi... More stake). Because of this, on a Friday night, they shut my site down - took it off line. Then they give me the spin that their 'abuse team' is different from their "support team" and they only work 9-5 monday to friday - no after hours support. So my site is now offline until Monday at the earliest. Dreadful service, in no way fit for a professional business to rely on. Please learn from my mistake, avoid these guys at all costs. Less
