Unbelievable tech support
Ron Dunn,

I've used numerous web hosting companies over the years and I've left most of them due to bad tech support - KnownHost has the best tech support I've experienced in my 20+ years of web hosting.

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!
