I actually consider myself intermediate when it comes to knowledge or websites, dns, domain setup, etc but every once in a while I come across something I don't know. I've put in 2 support tickets to KVChosting within the las... More t few months and both were responded to within 20 minutes and my issue fixed. Their customer service is amazing and I won't ever go anywhere else for hosting. Less

Lots of restrictions. Payment method fraudulent. Charge when automatic payment is disabled. Very slow support.

I asked to have an upgrade of Python so that I could installed Django and it was denied. Their shared server has Python 2.7, and Python 3 was denied to be installed, which has been the standard version for many years (you are... More give a jail shell that restricts most installation). Their basic plan is way too restrictive. You have to get a non-shared server to get any serious work done there and pay lots of money. There is also no way to stop a payment once the invoice is done six weeks in advance. Turning off automatic payment does nothing once the invoice is done and there is no way to remove a credit card once added to do payments. Less
Slow response from the support

Extremely slow response from the support/sales via their online chat. Tried to subscribe to their service few times and after 30 min waiting for an answer on my very simple question I gave up.. Demo is not working.
