Good stuff. I signed up for a VPS-2 just over a year ago - Nov 2014 I believe. Now, for the same price, I'm getting pretty much what the VPS 3 had at that time! Almost 50% more RAM, 25% more storage and 75% more bandwidth transfer!!! Not to mention of course the stellar support team.

Whichever way you look at it, that's excellent value and I love the fact the value doesn't deflate with time. Well done and thank you to all at KnownHost, merry Christmas guys & gals.

One small little point. Am I correct in assuming that the VPS1 now in fact meets the min system requirements for cPanel? :)

Technically speaking, yes. We still recommend 2GB+ for running it on CentOS 7 which is what new VPSs are provisioned with now.

Are there any plans to eventually allow managed dedicated services from Seattle? I know that our organization (in Western Canada) would move from your Dallas location in a heartbeat if it were an option.

There are currently no plans relating to this. I wouldn't say it's impossible, but highly unlikely any time soon.

Thank you Santa
Been with you for 5 years or so. Absolutely the best support I've ever seen!!
On my wish list is........ Cloud backup.

Slightly confused, on first read it appears that all customers including those with dedicated servers are getting an upgrade, but on second read it appears the available dedicated packages are being upgraded so we won't get anything unless we take out a new package, and this is obviously available to everyone. So are we Dedicated customers on the naughty list and, like last year, Santa is not delivering to us?

All dedicated servers are getting additional bandwidth: https://www.knownhost.com/managed-dedicated-hosting-2015-compare.html

Ok. Nice to know. Not that it will make any difference to me as my bandwidth use is very low. I also have a VPS over on your sister site Rocketvps and have had since soon after it started. How come we never get any Christmas pressies from them? Actually, looking at the site I think everybody over there just closed up shop and went home in 2013, does not seem to have been any changes to the site since!

We've noticed that too. We've got some announcements coming later in 2016 for RocketVPS customers :)
