Best Server Performance and Good Customer Support
Jonathan Hii,

I have been using VPS Malaysia service for 6 months. Until today, I am very satisfied. Their servers are stable and speed is fast compared to my previous hosting provider. More, their price is reasonable enough with no setup ... More fee and handling fee. Definitely will recommend to my friends who need VPS services, support local, support VPS Malaysia! Less
Unbelievable tech support

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.

Overall VPS Malaysia probably one of the most unreliable server provider in Malaysia, in term of pricing it is very attractive and pricing is probably the only reason why to choose VPS Malaysia, If you're looking for a qualit... More y & reliable server AVOID VPS Malaysia at all cost! Their 99.9% Guarantee Uptime is a JOKE! Over the past 7 days my server downtime is 1 day and 7 minutes (uptime is 86.0114%) with 72 incident and avg incident downtime is about 20minutes!
Talking about their support, 8/10 couldn't fix your issue and the only thing they did is help opening a ticket except 1 operator called N******* (he's the only one can fix your issue) and sometime those really urgent ticket they will only reply you 4-5 hours later.
Wherease your direct competitor did honour their 99% uptime at least their worst record is at 99.78% (The worst ever recorded). Talking about the price probably 20-25% higher on similar specs but reliable is the KEY! For support they will assign someone who really know what they're doing to fix the issue on the spot only when something they can't fix then they will open a support ticket for further investigation but still those ticket usually got reply within minutes! Even Exabytes their technical support is way better than your's.
So last thing here come the question how on earth you're rated 9.8/10 with such quality and reliability? I don't think Hostadvice is giving sincere advice for consumer like us.

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!
