KnownHost offers VPS, SSD VPS, reseller hosting, and dedicated servers at various pricing tiers. All their products are managed servers, and all servers are run on Linux operating systems.
Shared hosting is not available with KnownHost.
SSD VPS is the same as VPS except built on solid state drives. It's simply a faster VPS.
They have phone, live chat, email and a helpdesk available 24/7. They also have a wiki and a customer forum.
Yes. They guarantee 99.9% uptime in any given month. If they fail to achieve that, then for every 0.1% drop in uptime, customers are credited 10% of the cost.
There are a few exceptions to this guarantee like customer controlled downtime or things beyond KnownHost's control. See their SLA for full details.
Yes, they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all services except dedicated servers. To get your money back, you have to be a new customer.
None. KnownHost does not have any domain registration or transfer services available.
Each plan comes with full image backups for disaster recovery.
All plans come with DDoS protection included, and each plan comes with proprietary firewalls and other security software.
KnownHost runs three datacenters stateside: in Texas, Washington, and Maryland. They also have one in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
KnownHost offers the latest in programming languages. Currently they support PHP, Perl, and Python. Older versions are supported as well.
Softaculous comes pre-installed on all VPS and dedicated servers, but only the free version which does not include the most popular apps.
For WordPress and other CMSs as well as Magento and a huge range of others, you’ll need to spend an additional monthly fee for an improved license. Luckily, Softaculous is extremely cheap.
They offer both cPanel/WHM and DirectAdmin on all their VPS servers for an additional monthly charge. Their dedicated servers only use cPanel and it's included in the monthly price.
Yes. If the control panel you're migrating from is the same as the one you're going to, then their migration team will do the whole thing for you.
Their dedicated servers are run on a monthly pricing model with a small one-time setup fee. Their VPS servers are billed either monthly, quarterly, or annually. They do not have a setup fee.
Yes, if you pay upfront. However, this only applies to VPS hosting, not dedicated server hosting.
No, a CDN is not included. However, it is relatively easy for customers to add in a third party CDN like Cloudflare.
Not at all. They do offer discount codes that you'll want to watch for. These provide temporary discounts. Thus, the price will go up when the plan renews. Otherwise, there's little in their plans which will change in price from year to year.
Yes. They pay a commission for each sale from your website via tracked link. Payments are made monthly.
No. They cater to a more advanced audience with more powerful tools than most hosting companies, so do not offer much in the way of beginning website support.
No. All of their plans have caps on them, and every plan can be increased as you need it if you find yourself running out of resources.
