Trying again with our website using the KnownHost servers with Bitcatcha, we evidenced very good results from Canada and the USA. The response time in Canada was as low as 34ms, unfortunately from Europe and Asia they show a little slower time. Having a global grade of A is a great indicator that your website or online store will load quickly, but remembering that it will load a little slower from certain other regions.

KnownHost offers customer support like other providers, 24/7 by phone, live chat and ticketing system. As much as with an international number for you to use, but it’s a free number. Anyway it’s always better the option of support via tickets.
We tested the user support and the response time was less than 5 minutes, the staff is very friendly, cordial and knowledgeable. One feature we liked about their support is that the staff is located in Alabama and does not operate with staff outsourced to third countries. This company also has an extensive knowledge base as well as a forum.
