Im satisfied with offshore managed hosting services at HostPlay
Selen Wagner,

Well, it happened so that I signed up with Hostplay about several years ago, because I had a long nightmare period with another host and while dealing with this offshore semi-dedicated hosting, I immediately got to know that ... More I had made the right choice.
Excellent uptime, very responsive support and most importantly - great speed.

Support and everything are very good. I will strongly recommend Knownhost hosting to everyone. It's a reliable web host. I'm using Knownhost for more than 6+ yrs and I'm very happy with their services.

Be careful with this hosting

Be careful with this hosting. They are scammers. I paid 3 months in advance and they stole my money. Warez-Host and HostPlay are the same group of scammers.
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!
