Established in 2005, KnownHost has admirably gained enough experience to understand that a continuous evolution via innovation is mandatory in order to survive in a competitive market. Therefore, it is now known for its multiple VPS packages and rapid technical support, which cater to the needs of almost all VPS seekers.


Although the pricing varies widely as per the features you select, the packages on offer come with some common goodies such as two IP addresses, several domains, and free migration. The KnownHost servers usually run on the CentOS operating system, and that the users can gain access to the root the moment they sign up, along with the SSH access that is more pertinent to advanced users.

There are three company-owned servers that are located in New Jersey, California, and Dallas. This is important to know so that you can find the closest one to your core customers for a faster access time.

There are seven plans on offer but they are not customizable. However, users may personalize them later with a series of upgrades and add-ons. Some of the most common upgrades happen in terms of IP addresses, bandwidth, memory, and space. You can try having the payable WHMCS add-on for selling space, billing your customers, and managing sales. It is worth a try, and that you can even see its demo before buying.

Unlike the packages of rival hosting providers such as ServInt, there is no default control panel. This means that a few paid updates are actually mandatory for easier control over servers, and that one of them is the control panel one. A small fee gives access to cPanel that is intuitive and easy to use, even for the beginners.

You will admire that backups and migration facilities are available for free. In addition, third party installations are also free, including the addition of Virtuozzo Power Panel.

Unlike other hosting providers, KnownHost offers full service support via e-mail only. However, you can reach the sales department anytime through a chat room as well as via a toll-free number. Although the support via ticket is quick and efficient with no canned responses unlike many hosting companies but with personal approach. Most tickets answered pretty much within an hour depending on importance.


In all, KnownHost servers are appropriate for both enterprise and reselling businesses. Both the servers and features focus on adapting as per your needs, without having to buy more than what you need.
