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.

Customer Support

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.

    I’ve tried some high-end web hosting companies, I’ve only been with this company for a few months. They’ve been fantastic in terms of support.

    I love the whole KnownHost thing but their support is by far the best. Their support is exceptional with intervention in less than 3 minutes. The prices are fair considering the quality provided.

    I changed companies after I got sick of their technical support. Despite knowing that KnownHost does not have phone support, their support via chat and ticket is excellent

    After a lot of bad experiences with shared hosting, I finally got for a managed VPS and found Knownhost. That was many years ago. Now I have a managed dedicated server. Your support has been crucial as I am not very experienced.
