    I just wanted to make a quick note regarding this special as well as all specials that we have offered in the past and those we will most likely offer in the future.

    All specials we run are for new customers we well as existing customers towards the purchase of a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc...VPS.

    This special does not apply to upgrades and it also can not replace an existing VPS.

    If you have any quesitions please email sales at

    You wouldn't want to put out any upgrade specials?

    This special applies for second, third etc. VPS purchases for current customers, but what in the world would I do with a second VPS? It would just be a hassle to manage two separate setups. I'd much rather pay the same and have it all in one place. That is, upgrade.

    I understand you remembered your present customers with the VPS plan upgrades. While they're neat (even if VPS-M didn't get any extra memory - sigh), they don't really address the needs of those who are looking at upgrading to something substantially larger, such as in our case from M to XL.

    I must admit that I agree with Code Wallah. It seems the norm these days for special offers to be aimed solely at new customers, whether it be banking, insurance or webhosting the phrase "New Customers Only" has become somewhat of a frustrating worldwide anthem of todays society, and very few companies grasp the concept of also perhaps rewarding those who are loyal to a particular company or service on a long term basis.

    Wouldn't it be refreshing to see at least one offer per year aimed towards existing customers?

    Well, we gave free Memory (VPS L+) and Bandwidth (ALL) to all existing customers which was our special for our existing customers this year. We are only one year into this so the future this is possible. We always run specials for new sales (not just new customers) and always will but I am not disagreeing on your view. We passed around this idea but decided not to do it this time around. We do listen to our customers but we felt what we did was good for our first year factoring in several things. At least we did something, right?

    Sorry I didn't want my earlier post to appear ungrateful it wasn't intended that way, but things often don't sound as we'd intended them to do when written on a forum :) .

    I was just putting forward my own point of view and sharing a thought, in that as an existing customer I would have upgraded my account much sooner, had there have been an incentive too.

    For example, had the following 2006 offer

    have been extended for a few days more then for the last three months I would have been paying $40 a month instead of $20, as it was and since I had missed the offer, I delayed the upgrade, and continued with my existing account and waited until the next special offer came along.

    It did, and I have since upgraded :)

    Nobody expects you to offer such deals on a monthly basis, but everybody likes a bargain and they are a nice little gold nugget when they do come along. Its also refreshing to see a company who DOES reward existing customers too :) .

    Either way, your standard of service here is excellent and you should be proud of what you and your staff have achieved in 12 months and long may it continue.

    This special has officially ended.

  8. BAlGaInTl

    BAlGaInTl New Member

    So it ended early?

    I must admit... I've been looking for a reason to upgrade to the L package, but will put it off if specials aren't good for upgrading customers.

    I would even be happy if it were just the 10% off lifetime sans the 50% off for two months.

    I'm very happy with the service of knownhost, but have been bummed that the M package didn't get a ram upgrade.

  9. KH-Joel

    KH-Joel KH Sales Staff Member

    We sold out of the special. The RAM upgrade was discussed in detail and the VPS M plan we decided to not add it to. It isn't that we didn't want to but we decided if someone requires more RAM the best option is to upgrade to the L plan.

  10. BAlGaInTl

    BAlGaInTl New Member

    Ah... no problem. I didn't realize there was a limit. It only makes sense though.

    I completely understand about the M plan. I will probably still upgrade in the future to the L, but I don't need it just yet.

    I bet you would get a lot of people to jump ship from the M if the price was right.

    Thanks a lot for the reply and for your wonderful service.

    Lots of 50% off coupons, none work?

    I don't understand how something that expires on 3/31/07 has already expired? I don't wish to start on the wrong foot with KnownHost, I love everything about you guys. My current host is perfect, except when it comes to support..which is the reason I am looking for something new. My network friend and I plan to migrate over slowly so as to clean up our current VPS, taking up to 2 months. I was looking forward to half price off the first 2 months, and all the coupons that promise this don't seem to work. Please advise, thank you.

    We sold out of the VPS's allocated for this promotion. We do have a new promotion however which you can take advantage of now. It is KH2MONTHS and it gets you 50% off the first and second month. It is for monthly subscriptions only. Any further questions let us know.
