Very good service. Been using managed VPS-2 for a while. Since bandwidth is metered really would love to see the switch over to 1000Mbit.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?
It's coming up to 6 years now that I've been with KH and just over 2 years I have been on a dedicated server. I cant recollect the last time I received any upgrade except an increase of 250GB storage at the time when I signed up.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?
Thanks Daniel, that is understood about additional space; as we speak I am looking into freeing up some space on the server namely deleting some daily backups. I think I will stick with the current package and enquire about newer hardware.@Kayz , I'm afraid it's not that easy to add space to a dedicated server. This would require migrating your data from one disk to another etc. However, you can speak with our sales / billing department if you'd like to explore updating to the newer hardware. We will work with you and issue pro-rated credits based on usage time if your swapping to a newer and/or larger server. Just mention this thread & my name in the sales ticket and we will make sure to assist you.
I echo the comment about gigabit uplink, that would be brilliant, and pretty soon it's going to be a bottleneck for end users as well.Very good service. Been using managed VPS-2 for a while. Since bandwidth is metered really would love to see the switch over to 1000Mbit.
I do have a question on your post though. I'm currently at a VPS-2 as you are and you said almost %50 more RAM? The upgrade indicates it only increased %25. Went from 2GB to 2.25GB, correct?
You will still be on SSD1. Check your server status in the billing portal you should see more RAM listedThank you for the Gift. KH support is awesome
Meanwhile, I have two SSD VPS accounts. But i could not see the upgrades reflected.
It shows i am still in SSD 1
Did i miss something?
Daniel, the KH-DS1 offers 750 GB HD and KH-DS2 offers 1 TB HD. I signed up on a 1 TB HD offer back in 2013 under the KH-DS1 package and have had it since. After having spoken to Deborah in your sales department I am told that I cannot retain my existing 1 TB HD if I am to have the newer specs under KH-DS1 today.@Kayz , I'm afraid it's not that easy to add space to a dedicated server.

Predominantly all the websites on the box are mine with a few personal clients as I do websites for friends and family and photography in my spare time. As i don't offer web hosting services to mainstream public users I thought maybe going back to a VPS would be a cheaper alternative saving me a lot of money until I'm ready. I was already looking into Amazon web services a few months ago for the image hosting site and then decided not to go ahead with it as I had a change of heart and have been contemplating in opening up shop for webhosting services in my area; so I thought the dedicated server may be useful to hold onto.Kay's, if you do downsize to a VPS, would something like Amazon web services or even Dropbox be suitable for your extra storage needs? In both cases you're Beatle to pipe the files directl brought the web page to the user, so no difference to them.
Thanks to Daniel we may have a solution, but i'm keeping my options open still.
haha @adev you were not implying that at all, however your suggestion of AWS was a correct one. I have said time and time again the quality service provided by KH by that I mean technical support, little to no issues with my websites and the uptime is great. So why change something if it's not broken?To be clear, I was suggesting using AWS for any shortfall in VPS storage if you decided to downsize to a KH VPS package. I wasn't suggesting yo leave KH and host the entirety of your websites at AWS. Of course you're free to do whatever you choose but just wanted to emphasise I was not suggesting that.
Hopefully you can come to an agreeable arrangement with KH. Purely from watching this thread it seems like KH-Daniel was prepared to do something for you that's not normally on the menu, and Deborah just wasn't aware of that. Hopefully my perception was right and they will sort you out
