I've been through many south african web hosts, but find that Hostking is awesome. I had one major hiccup with my website where I broke it by installing a caching plugin into my wordpress and they were willing to help. I like... More that they are 24/7 as I can also count on someone to be around when needed using their live chat. I also have no issues with the speed of my website. It runs nice and fast. Keep up the good work guys Less

Within 4 weeks HostKings service level slipped so far down to disconnect a paid account without notice, disrupting file and data transfer badly. Asking myself, is this a new revenge policy for leaving? I noticed recently a si... More gnificant drop in service quality and decided to change to another host. Your behavior is now childish and changed from bad service to disgusting. Less
