Beyond The Extra Mile - A Service Orientated Company Of Note!
CECILE BEKKER,

The Gridhost guys are always helpful beyond the scope of their duties - always friendly - always give more assistance than expected! Call Backs - Follow Ups and even the "not really part of their job" advice! - Just the BEST - forget the REST!
Always Rsponsive

I've been with KnownHost for 5 years. The servers are always up. The response time to ticket submissions are very fast. The support staff never make me feel like I'm imposing on them. Overall, a great hosting company.

Horrendous service and slow servers

TSO Host used to be really good. Then they got bought out by Godaddy and that was it. They went down the toilet. Support is horrendous, servers are very slow and over loaded. No doubt Godaddy bought them out and then stripped... More back their support and increased the number of sites per server to order to increase profit at the cost of providing a decent service. Had to migrate all our sites away to a better provider. Less
not responsive- bad support

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!
