Features and Ease of Use
Konet provides a number of pretty powerful hardware and software features, in addition to the basics which are:
- Domain registration (not included in their pricing)
- Free SSL certificates
- Email hosting with all plans (unlimited with most)
- cPanel hosting control panel
- Hosting security and DDoS protection
Konet goes all out when it comes to providing their customers with the best features in their hosting packages. Even their web hosting has semi-dedicated resources, with impressive hardware comprising SSD storage (with RAID 10 redundancy), DDR4 RAM, and 1 GB ports. Their software offerings are equally impressive with CloudLinux OS, LightSpeed Web Server and Cache, and a professional anti-spam filter.
Customers with mission-critical requirements can benefit from the VIP support and additional resources offered by the Business Hosting. At the other end of the scale, the Managed WordPress plan allows you to host a website using the most popular CMS without worrying about the admin.
You can easily select your desired VPS resources using a simple slider. You have the flexibility to choose from multiple data centers worldwide. Plus, your solution comes preinstalled with the comprehensive Imunify360 security suite, which includes advanced firewall and malware detection capabilities. Rest assured, all plans also come with 24/7 DDoS protection for added peace of mind.
Pricing and Support
Although Konet’s prices are ostensibly not the cheapest, they look like good value for money when you consider how their features compare with other providers.
For one thing, all hosting except for VPS hosting is backed by a 30-day money-back guarantee. Secondly, there are no bandwidth limits, and the other resources are also quite generous. They also provide (for free) the kind of software you would usually pay for, including Imunify360 security and an SSL certificate.
All web hosting and managed WordPress hosting comes with the same basic packages and pricing structure, with the fully managed WordPress hosting obviously costing a bit more. The Business Hosting packages are very affordable for enterprise-level web hosting.
It’s somewhat surprising that domain registration is not included in the prices, but they do provide DNS management for free in the first two years. Oh, and did I mention their 99.99% uptime SLA?
Konet offers 24/7/365 technical customer support primarily via a live ticket system, but you can also reach out to them via live chat and telephone (during office hours). Their technical support staff are responsive and very good at solving most issues, and you can also purchase additional levels of support services up to a semi-managed level.
While nowhere near comprehensive, their knowledge base is well organized and has articles about the most important aspects of hosting.
