Definitely recommend this host

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.
Couldn't be better

After coming from Vodien, this company is like a breath of fresh air. The support is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, and they are so fast to respond. The pricing is good, and the speed difference coming from Vodien dedi... More cated servers and VPS is unbelievable. Oliver gave us excellent advice, from choosing which servers to use based on our needs and current setups, to specific settings to use in WHM. We're glad we chose Ransom IT, and they are all Australian! Less

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!
