Why I Love Blacknight!

Blacknight haven’t gotten their deserved mention here at all I noticed today, for any of you who are unfamiliar Blacknight are a web hosting company based in Carlow. I myself have been using Blacknight for over a year and a half. [Finally every one of my domains is on Blacknight instead of across multiple register’s!]

But this post isn’t to point out how many domain names I have registered with Blacknight, it is to point out what an amazing hosting company they are, so in a randomly ordered list this is why I love Blacknight;

  1. Great offers on domains every week, monthly offers are usually emailed to you.. real money saving stuff! 😉
  2. They accept laser card payments, as we hate having to use the expensive credit card!
  3. Their hosting is 100% reliable, most hosts tell you they have 99.8% uptime, and then they go up and down constantly, not Blacknight I actually cannot remember a single day where any of my sites went offline for even a half hour. 😀
  4. Cheaper than the majority of hosts, Blacknight’s lowest package starts at €5  a month, you’d really struggle to find a host that well priced!
  5. Amazing support; I’ve emailed Blacknight with hosting queries on multiple occasions and they are always extremely quick to get back to you with an answer, calling them is even better and you don’t have to worry about waiting with 1850[callsave].
  6. A great backup vault that takes care of backups for you, because we all know what happens when you don’t have backups! 😉
  7. Multiple websites on one package, the reason I originally moved to Servage hosting, if you do web design or just have a lot of websites this is seriously the most money saving feature you can find on a web host.
  8. VPS’s start at €16 a month, I have yet to upgrade my package to a VPS, I  see myself doing it in future especially with the low starting price of €16 a month!

So overall, thank you Blacknight for being such a great host and to everybody else out there hosting websites if your not using Blacknight, check them out!


  1. it’s really a great article keep posting, nice article

  2. Just to let you know that, Like you I was a really happy Blacknight customer, and recommended them to everyone I could.  But their VPS server is down, and will be for another 48 hours.  I have received no apology, no offer of help, no offer of compensation,  and was just told that I should have paid for a collocation server if I wanted a 99.99% uptime.  I currently have an Enterprise VPS solution that costs nearly 1K/year.  Severely hacked off – not so much because of the problem, it could happen to anyone, but by their attitude.

  3. Yeah I do know that when you have a VPS etc. you are the one responsible for managing it.. However even with mine I’ve found support to be more than helpful, sorry to hear about your bad experience!

  4. I had always liked Blacknight that is until what they did to me recently.

    I have several domains, which I will be transferring when their time is up. What happened was that one of my domains was up for renewal, and I didn’t pay because I didn’t want the site anymore. But instead of suspending that domain and host, they suspended all my accounts, which had no relation to that package.
    I receive no warning and only happened by chance to come across my own site, and notice it was not working. That when I discovered I had to pay for a domain, unless I had done that my website could have been down for weeks, it might have already been so, I am not sure.
    So I asked them why, through a support ticket, and explained I no longer wanted the domain. No response, I just noticed a few hours later that all sites had been restated and the other domain had disappeared. As of yet I still have had no response from them.

    No warnings, nothing, I am not an F****** computer, I am human being, please have the decency to reply to me as one. Sadly, Its clear they just want my money and don’t want any contact with me!
