They were helpful in supporting a lot of student with a free hosting solution for their project in digital marketing, without asking anything back. Their hosting works good and they were there to support us for technical issues.

Blacknight's customer service is first class. I can highly recommend them.
Over the past number of years they have helped me with a couple of issues that are probably fairly simple for a professional but did my head in.

I've used a few different hosting companies over the years, and i have to say these have been the most reliable and helpful.

The really large hosting companies..., you tend to be another one of the faceless masses and your problem falls into the endless waves of others. The small hosting companies are generally under resourced, or you pay through the nose. Blacknight are always quick, and you deal with a competent person.

Any time i've called regarding an issue, there's been no long call waits - normally through to a support agent (one that actually knows what's going on) within 5 minutes.

I've used Blacknight for the past 3 years and their customer support is outstanding. They will get back to you within minutes. I've never come across this type of service before. Recommended to all my friends. Well done and keep up the good work

I have been a customer since 2012 and I currently have a shared hosting package and three domains with them. Their pricing is very competitive for the excellent... service they provide.
I have only ever had one issue with the service and it was dealt with very promptly and professionally by the customer service staff.

14 sites with Blacknight including 3 sites moved to Blacknight from other hosts (and we all know what a pain that can be) but yet to have a problem. Also, any queries I have had have been answered quickly and effectively. More than satisfied. Keep it up!
