A small praise for KnownHost

Cheerio guys & gals!

I know, KnownHost (https://www.knownhost.com) is not what we would all consider a typical LET host, especially price wise. However, @ChrisMiller offered me a very good discount on their smallest VPS (so called "Basic VPS") two years ago, when I was looking for a managed solution to host family & friends without headaches. The location that I took is their NL data center.

What can I report after being two years with them? Nothing but good things!

UptimeRobot has not reported any downtime during that time frame.

Support is incredibly fast and has always been able to fix my server issues in no time. This was the most important thing for me and I never got disappointed.

Finally vacations without some friends' small business website being down (because they fucked up something) and me having to take a look at the issue. Just open a ticket with their support, have a Gin and Tonic at the bar, only to see it resolved and fully working afterwards, even with a small documentation of what has been done. I could not be happier.

So if you are looking for a cPanel or DirectAdmin VPS and don't mind paying a small "extra" for excellent managed services -> Take them into account. Absolutely worth it.

Enjoy your weekend & kind regards.

    I have used them for a year, before they launched NL location.

    Their support is excellent, tickets were replied within 5 minutes.

    On my Managed cPanel box once they recovered critical mysql failure.

    Recommended host.

    Probably not. But it's so easy to lose $$$$ millions nowadays, that I cannot guarantee it.
    But seriously: I would have no worries hosting important stuff with them. They have been consistently great for years now. I am actually considering hosting the website of my own company there, after evaluating them for long now.

    KnownHost is indeed ideal for serious business projects. Top notch services, been years with them.

    Remember the old days of wiredtree? I loved that brand. It was on par with KH, but KH finally killed the competition. WT got sold and it disappeared.

    There is no comparable services with KH nowdays. Reactive management at small prices, hard to beat.

  • I haven't seen any offers from them here, which is understandable given that they're not really a lowend provider, but now's a good excuse to throw some super limited coupon codes, right @ChrisMiller? :lol:

  • KnownHost is one of the best managed VPS I've ever used! Kudos to the team!

  • Oh WiredTree... Loved them back in the days before they got sold.
    But Knownhost is an excellent replacement.

  • I think your service outlived Chris's time there, fairly sure he's at QPS now.

    I can +1 KnownHost though for managed, used them way way back. A friend asked me for a managed VPS recommendation in ~2012 and I suggested them, just checked and his company is still using KH... so service must be great if he hasn't moved anything in over 7 years.

    Glad to hear all is going well for you @Amitz! We try very hard.

    We are working on expanding our unmanaged/low-end offers so everyone keep their ears out for some great offers to drop soon ;)

    Catch me over at Primary DNS. If you want to chat I am done with this cesspool.

  • I'll have to agree KH has been as dependable as they come. My two VPSs there just keep on ticking.

    Have I mentioned how much I hate auto correct recently?

    Didn't you already have a budget brand some years ago? RocketVPS or something like that?
    I remember having some service there. KnownHost uptime, just without the management.

    At least you don't live in the Southern half. I will forgive you......for now.

    Looking forward to some offers :smile:

    Just a small note regarding the new website..
    While I'm sure the DDoS protection is complementary to the VPS offering, I think you meant "complimentary" as in free.

    Yeah we did, and in the end we rolled it back into KH. We've recently launched our unmanaged cloud KVM line and are expanding upon that within the KH brand itself doing it better this time with more products on the unmanaged front coming soon!

    Great news. I went over the new section unmanaged cloud. Looking good. Are you going to launch new services, or you are referring to the ones listed on that page?
