Been using KnownSRV services for more than 6 years now which include shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.
g - Cheap, good resource management, not a single downtime, good read/write disk speeds, good network speed. As some sites grew on shared hosting and got a fair amount of visitors, speeds were still pretty good without noticable difference. Moved those to VPS after a while.
VPS - Have multiple virtual private servers at the moment ranging from smallest plans up to v3. Had a single downtime in past few years on one vps which lasted about 1 day and it was partially my setup mistake, partially security upgrades performed on their end. Received 3 months for free due to 1 day downtime. Prices may be a bit expensive for some people, but if you are looking for quality like I do, don't look further. Network speeds, disk read/write and resource management between virtual machines - all good. Even the smallest openvz VPS plan with 1GB of memory works very well with 5 medium sized sites, mail server, a few docker containers and a few other things.
Dedicated servers - Three dedicated machines are currently working for about a year and a half, absolutely perfect - no a single issue with performance. Actually, had only one issue upon installing a newer .iso image over ipmi as something did not talk well about the drivers, but it was installed by them within a day.
Reliability - I am not afraid for my data with them, but I still have backups provided by them.
Pricing - For the quality I receive, this is not expensive. Will rather pay a bit more and sleep well, than get woken up in the middle of the night.
User friendly - Everything that was asked for, it was received. Even some extra services. ;)
Support - Did not have to contact support for any issues, except for adding new IP addresses to existing VPS. This was usually resolved within 6-24 hours.
Features - Customizable options in cpanel (shared hosting), good dedicated server customization - from backups, RAID controllers, power supply redudancy ect.
Overall recommended if you mind about quality of your service, but don't mind paying a bit extra than what others ask for.
So I was once an ASO customer and when that began to fall apart I came over to A2, as they were recommended by a former ASO/A...展開
2 exec whom I know. I purchased a triannual plan sight unseen for my client hosting.
There's a LOT of stuff that could be better. For starters, the WHM/CPanel setup does not allow for me to connect to my GDrive to back up the /home folder as my old ASO did. Also, I cannot quickly access PHPMyAdmin from the WHM level to get into multiple databases at once (good for importing data between accounts if there's a need).
I have my own set of custom nameservers set up that I cannot use for new accounts created because something is not configured correctly and it takes a couple of trips to the support ticket system to get the domain to point to the host. It's a major PITA when you've got several sites to build and want to get the domains resolving for things that depend upon the domain name, such as a WP install. Yes, "a couple of trips" because the "guru" who initially helps me ends up being the "trainee" and I have to make at least two trips for it to resolve correctly.
Many times I'm in the support chat and see "You are No. 1 in the queue" and then I get bumped back to No.3, then 2, then 1, then 2 again, etc. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature or a ploy by marketing to make me feel like "shoulda bought the "priority service package"...
I kinda wish I'd done more research before I so blindly trusted the word...of someone I trusted!
Probably gonna be moving again soon and getting a refund on the term I've not used so far.
