Why Choose KnownHost?

appRain application hosting is ideally suited for developers who need a stable, fast website, redundant backups made automatically, and who like being in control of their hosting account (whether development or deployed apps). We put you in control!

SSL Certificates

Every hosting account at KnownHost is entitled to a free SSL certificate to put front-line security in place – just say the word and we’ll provide you a free cert. Premium certs available for a fee.


The backup system is free, automated and robust. It includes a full system snapshot each day, with emails, files and databases backed up onto a different server. 3 are retained (2 daily, 1 weekly).


Most plans include cPanel control panel free of charge, enabling you to quickly and easily do routine hosting functions. Headless plans are available, if you’d prefer not having a panel – no problem.


Automated attacks on websites are all too common, which is why we’ve placed free DDoS protection in front of every hosting account. Security is something we take seriously!

Managed Servers

appRain hosting plans are generally 100% fully managed, so that KnownHost handles many server technical matters, leaving you to deal with appRain development and deployment responsibilities.


Switching providers to KnownHost? Let us help with our free migration service. We’ll get everything moved over, with minimal interruption, coordinating with you on the date/time so it schedules well.

Your Choice of Flexible Hosting Options

Reseller ›

When a bit more resources is required, or when you need granular control of cPanel accounts (1 per domain), reseller hosting is the natural step up from share hosting.


appRain is particularly quick on our SSD VPS hosting plans, giving you the high performance of SSD with the single-server control of the traditional VPS!

VPS Cloud ›

Enhancing the SSD VPS, we’ve created a cloud-based VPS for those with more demanding needs. The Cloud VPS has even more extreme performance than the traditional SSD – for a bit higher cost.

SSL Certificates ›

Front-line protection for your website - a premium SSL cert is a must.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a guarantee?

If at any point during the first 30 days you’d like a refund, for any reason, we’ll be happy to do so. If there is an issue, it would be great to let us know, but we definitely will honor your request for a refund.

Are there installation limits?

With appRain hosting, you’re not limited to just appRain being installed on the hosting account. Feel free to try other apps and scripts at the same time – they’re included too.

What restrictions are there?

Our ToS and AUP spell out exactly what’s okay, and what isn’t, so check them to get familiar with the restrictions. The short answer is simply that we don’t allow hacking, warez, spamming or intellectual property infringing content or software. If what you’re wanting to do is illegal, then do it elsewhere (or not at all)!

How exactly do backups work?

Our system is running from the instant your account is created, automatically taking snapshots every day. The snapshots are transferred to another server, giving you protection in case of a disaster. All email, files, images, databases, etc, are stored, so that you can login and, within a few clicks, restore everything from the previous day, two days ago, or a week ago. It’s a very effective system that should help give you peace of mind – particularly when dev work is underway and any loss could mean lost work.
