Always reliable and good support
It has one-click backup and restore, and it has a staging environment! 24-7 available helpful tech support. Never had a problem with their servers

Long time customer, still amazed by Knownhost improvements and support
One key thing about having a VPS server is that you can't know everything. We might be a web design and SEO company, but my server knowledge is not at...
expert level. Whenever I need help, Knownhost are not only there for me, they do it fast, accurately, and politely. You really can't ask for more :) Highly recommended.

WP ENGINE HAS LET ME DOWN
I have been with WP Engine for my wordpress site for several years now. I had heard they were the best for a business Wordpress site. In the past, I h...
ad no problems with my site ever going down. Since switching to WP Engine, It has been problem after problem with my site going down for hours at a time. I finally had to set up with a Down Time notification service so I could keep track. They have switched my site over to different servers several times but never seem to be able to provide a reason or explanation for the problem. Their pricing is way higher than most companies (which they admit) yet they provide nothing special and their reliability is not stable at all. Now actively looking to switch my site to a different company.
