I was on Knownhost managed Webhosting for almost an year and after that I made a shift to unmanaged hosting with Linode. For people who are not good with Linux and networking command, I would suggest stick to managed webhosting. Get a cPanel or plesk and play with everything.
I rate Knownhost customer support as 5/5 for prompt reply and when I signed up with them, they have set up everything. I added cPanel as an addon when I signed up with them.
