Though I wasn't with knownhost yet when they were with their original datacenter so I cant recall exactly where the DC was, I do know it was in Savvis and they switched over to colo4 in this announcement:This is a little off topic, but can someone refresh my memory. When KH started wasn't their data center and equipment in the Washington DC area just like the people/company are?
Hi Dan,I do love KH but I find it strange that I get penalized (don't get my discount that I got when I signed up) for paying yearly. Really doesn't make much sense.
I was looking back to way back at the start of KH and saw Savvis(is layered tech in savvis?):We had our servers at Layeredtech actually
Really? Thats amazing - how are you able to keep such high level of support - I really am in awe- I thought you just had guys in your "office" with Jay and Paul watching 24/7have remote workers all in the US.
Thanks Joel. I'm guessing since LT has Savvis among others, that your machines when with them were in the Washington DC data center then. Wanted to make sure I wasn't thinking about another provider, but as I recall it was one of the reasons I chose KH since I am on the east coast. Looks like you guys are in MD now pretty close to some of my clients in PAX RiverHello,
We had our servers at Layeredtech actually and after we filled up a few machines we needed to go a different route and build our infrastructure out. The renting machines approach which some do and don't like to admit it is just not the way to build your business if your in this for the long haul which we are. You can't use Virtuozzo to the fullest not to mention really control your situation like we can. Anyway, we now have servers in Colo4dallas (moved there from Layeredtech) as well in California (Market Post Tower). We are in the DC Metro area but also have remote workers all in the US. Hope this helps.
Would really like it if you guys did have a DC DC somedayWe were in Savvis with Layeredtech but not in the DC area. They were all in Texas at Savvis. We considered the DC area but opted not to do that. Sorry if you were under a different impression. This doesn't mean we won't be on the East Coast someday.
Just curious as to why you chose to pay so much up front(yearly billing)?
I understand if KH did in fact deeply discount yearly billing but as they don't, why would you want to shell out all that money up front - my thinking, pay monthly and my money will just sit that much longer in my Orange account at ING
Hi Dan,Heya Josh,
I just got tired of paying a bill every month that I received two days before it was due. I was told that they give you a weeks leeway but still.
I've been paying yearly with my last couple of hosts now and I feel comfortable paying KH that way whereas with others there wouldn't be a chance that I would
