    so any special offers for existing customers?

    seems to me you concentrate far too much on attracting new customers, and hardly do anything to keep your existing customers....

    A freebie or a small discount every now and then goes a long way in terms of customer loyalty...

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm a happy camper here at knownhost...been here for 1,5 years with 3 vpses..... and I don't think I'd ever switch to anyone's just that we "old ones" feel rather neglected sometimes..

    We do think of how we can do things for current customers but it isn't easy unless we want to start losing money. Most customers in some way or other had or have a special tied to their account. In time we will do things but it is more about timing. I know what you mean but if we don't concentrate on new sales then we will end up not being in business so all of this allows us to continue to provide the service we provide. One thing to note if you have 3 VPS's you are qualified for our VPS Reseller Program so if your not signed up you really should be as this allows nice discounts which is geared to give back to long time customers like you. Feel free to PM me to discuss further. Have a Happy Holidays!!

    I wasn't aware you had a VPS reseller program, it's not the same as the affiliate program is it?

    What you say is correct Jay, you need to focus on getting new customers, and staying competitive and in profit. I realize hosting is a tough business, especially with the insanely retarded overseller hosts out there. But you should also focus on retaining those new customers too, because your existing customers are the ones who'll recommend you to others, and write the rave reviews about you on hosting forums!

    For the most part, I think most Knownhost customers are loyal customers, and very happy with the excellent support and service they get. I don't think I've ever read a negative review about knownhost, well at least one that is reasonable and fair.
    We all hope you become a very successful and major hosting company soon, and don't leave your customers behind like many others who made it did.....and they all lost out and fell apart at the end.

    VPS Reseller program is different. Just ask our Sales department and they will send you the document explaining it.

    We plan to be around a long time and most importantly continue to provide a solid service and always be looking to improve it along the way. We aren't perfect by no means but we try to do all the things that are needed to be a successful business. Happy Holidays!!!

    Well jay, I contacted your sales department, and the reseller plan with its 10% discount is only available when you pay monthly. That makes no sense at all to me. You see, you're encouraging people to pay monthly, and they might just pack up and go at the end of the month, while those of us who pay yearly are the most loyal ones, and plan to stay on... in fact, have to stay on.....

    Again, I'm disappointed with your policy toward us loyal fans....

    Awesome! Does the fully manged apply to existing accounts? There are times that I can use some help with more complicated commands. I'm learning but not fully there yet.

    I have gotten in on two discounts and while I'll take all I can get, I understand that if they started giving pre-existing customers every discount, they'd have to raise the overall rate.

    Absolutely ;)

    Very true. There's a lot of competition in this industry and to have quality support, servers, network like KH's has WHILE keeping pretty good prices and discounts it's really hard to beat ;)

    DesotoD New Member

    That it is and the support and quality will keep me here over pricing. I WANT good prices, I DEMAND quality and support.

    I asked a month ago if you guys were going to have this discount and you replied:

    [FONT=&quot]At this time we do not plan to run another 10% off for life promo in the nearest future.

    I would of waited a month for this :mad:

    And they didn't have the offer in "the nearest future". You do realize that statement can mean anything so instead of posting here in the forums, you can submit a ticket with sales and they might be able to do something for you.

    I'm not trying to sound upset, but letting your members know that you are offering Fully Managed VPS's is something that should be done.

    I didn't receive an email regarding this.

    It was done with this thread.

    Technically, yes. But, if you believe that is a professional way of telling your clients what changes are happening, then you are mistaken. Sending out a mass email is the ONLY way you should notify clients. A forum cannot guarantee delivery on important information to clientel.

    We will make note of this for the future. We have used mailing lists before but this announcement we did not.

    Mylinear is correct that they do make it pretty much "known" when specials are running ;)

    However, shoot an email over to [email protected] dot com and they might be able to help you out ;)
