Fine so far!
No issue or downtime and the support is friendly and quick to reply. Nice to do business with a Texas company as well.

gkg.net has become unreliable and nonresponsive
IN the last 4 years GKG.NET has experienced numerous hardware failures on a number of occasions taking a long time to restore services for the domains affected by the outage. This time (current as of this posting) they have been down for over 72 hours, with no estimate of time to resolution. This is now directly affecting business communications and ability to function! I am actively preparing to move all domains within my control to another service. I might point out that evidence of Bankruptcy has appeared in a web search as of July 2015.

Terrible and getting worse
I had two websites hosted at GKG. One was personal and the other was for a customer of mine. The customer decided to take ownership of his site. He called GKG and they gave him ownership of BOTH sites... no permission required from me for either site!! What kind of security is this? There are probably legal issues involved here, but I did not pursue them. Instead, I called to get my site back and, you guessed it, I had to jump through hoops to prove I was the real owner.

If you have their cheapest hosting plan, you can no longer FTP to and from their server, as you previously could. You have to use their file manager... what a pain. This is a recent change... I assume it's to get you to upgrade to a more expensive plan.

Oh yes... their support sucks too. I called on a Friday night and was told to leave a message and they would get back to me. They did... 12 hours later. Good thing it wasn't an urgent problem.

Lastly, there are bugs on their site. Logging in to your account [read more...]

GKG will rip you off!
GKG has long wait times to get through and if you let a domain expire they will try to say they can not get it back even during first 30 days of the ICANN grace period. Then they will price gouge you and charge you an $80 "restore fee" even when the site is still up. Run, don't walk, away from GKG. I try to do business locally, but they are a real rip off! I have had much better success and love NAMECHEAP.com, even godaddy is a better experience than GKG.
