Kickassd is a relatively new company, created in early 2015. Since its inception, they focused on a thing that many cheap hosting providers are lacking: quality.
Let’s check together the strong points of Kickassd:
Kickassd has moved into the cloud. They are one of the very few shared / WordPress hosting providers that offers a high availability (HA) environment. This mitigates the most common causes for downtime in the shared hosting industry.
Fast disaster recovery. In case something bad happens to your site, Kickassd makes restoring an entire server from backup only a few minutes. Traditional shared hosts can take days to full y restore data when things go bad.
Many locations: Currently Montreal (Canada) and Frankfurt (Germany). Chicago (USA), Amsterdam (Netherlands), and Singapore are all planned for later in 2017.
Only pure SSD storage. This offers greatly enhanced performance, stability, and uptime for services and websites.
Performance: Kickassd offers a highly tuned, and high performance environment capable of handling much higher traffic then your regular shared hosting provider at a very competitive price.
Adaptable environments: Their shared and WordPress hosting works much the same way as a VPS. Every account is isolated, has its own resources and can scale as needed. Kickassd have eliminated the need for people to go through the stressful and costly process of moving to a VPS. Simply scale your account and keep enjoying all the perks of their shared environment!
The perks: Free SSL, free MagicSpamPro, free server level caching, free OpCode caching, and free R1Soft backups into cloud.
24/7 support by phone, e-mail, ticket, and Live Chat (chat and phone during business hours only). Kickassd staff are friendly and professional, and you will not get any generic canned replies.
More cool stuff: Kickassd invites every customer to their Slack chat where they are free to chat with support, ask questions and chat with other Kickassd members. Server monitoring also reports direct into the main channel so if there is a problem you know about it as quick as they do. Slack is a real time chat that is available for PC, Mac, browser, Android, and Iphone.
