KnownHost is by far the best hosting company I have ever used. I have been with them since 2011 (managed VPS) and only have praise for them. Even when I ask support about things that strictly speaking aren't their job they ar... More e always fast, friendly and helpful and their technical skills are impressive. Also, by their own initiative they often take those extra steps to make sure they have found the best solution for me even though it means more work for them and I never have to worry about downtime. Highly recommended! Less

Worst Company

I have used Hostripples for 2 years and enjoyed their pathetic service.
If you use their service you have to sit infront of your computer the entire day to solve the server issues. In a nutshell, here is what Hostripples is:
... More Pros: Cheap Hosting
Cons:
1. All emails will delivered to spam (Cpanel emails)
2. Very slow server.
3. The account will get suspended every alternate day. And you have to hire a developer on regular basis.
4. IP gets blocked too often. Which means your website will not work on certain networks and you have to contact them and get it fixed.
5. Customer support is pathetic.

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
