I have been with most major hosting companies, since the days of Earthlink and Netscape. Yes, back in the stone age. I even operated business hosting a few years back. Back then, you were either using a shared or dedicated server. Not talking about renting rack space, as that takes getting separate onsite personnel. Shared hosting is where all clients are in the same location and must use the available resources with everyone. So if one client is a heavy user, you pay the price in resource lag. On the other side there is the pricey dedicated hosting where you are have access to all resources available on the machine. But that is very expensive.

Today there is an affordable hosting solution called VPS, or Virtual Private Server. You are given resources that are not shared by everyone. The CPU time and memory are shared across all accounts on the server, but at the same time parts of those resources are always dedicated to each account. This allows for more power and flexibility than being on a shared account…and gets you much closer to a private server experience without the huge dedicated server price. And since this is a better variation of shared hosting, it is very easy to expand or upgrade space, power and resources. Every year I get notices from KnownHost saying they have upgraded various server components for free. That does not happen with dedicated servers very often. I can’t remember, in over 2 years being with KnownHost, my sites ever being down or laggy because of their VPS servers. They have been fast and reliable…something I need with clients ranging from medical facilities and surgeons to radio shows and educational incentive programs.

Besides a great price and latest hardware upgrades, I stay with KnownHost because they have the best support staff I have used…ever.

But there are tons of hosts that offer VPS servers, why go with KnownHost? Along with hosting, you need to manage your server. Every day, you will get tons of hackers and spammers trying compromise and infiltrate your server. Most hacks are subtle and will try to piggy-back eCommerce websites or spam emails from your server. Next you and your clients have to deal with Operation System updates and tweaking tons of settings. Wonder if you, a client, or hacker trashes their site. You need backups. Maybe you are migrating sites from another server? With my other hosting companies, I had a separate server management company to handle server issues I could not. KnownHost can do all this and it is included in the hosting price…it’s like they give that premium service away for free. I am not exaggerating when I say these guys are the best managed hosting out there.

Besides a great price and latest hardware upgrades, I stay with KnownHost because they have the best support staff I have used…ever. They have pulled myself and my clients out of some exhaustive scary situations, without one complaint. When I had no clue what to try next, they would not give up and did miracles. Their ticket times are very fast and you are talking with people you get to know over time in Alabama. They are a team of skilled techs and have never once let me down. Plus, if you ask for advice, they will steer you in the right direction…always with a helpful attitude. At KnownHost, you feel like they want you there. You are not just a number. Even the Billing department has always helped me through my issues with courteous patience, when it was not their fault.
