Why Go with KnownHost?

Backdrop CMS application hosting isn’t something everyone offers or understands fully. At KnownHost, we provide high-spec hosting accounts, and have done so for years. 99% of our accounts are fully managed – because site owners would rather worry about something other than server technical matters!

Unlimited Bandwidth

Don’t worry about having lots of traffic. We’re including unlimited bandwidth so that you can serve up as many pages to as many people as you can attract, without charging extra for bandwidth.

Full Backups

We’ll preconfigure your SEO Panel backup system to take complete snapshots of your install – including emails, databases, and files. They’re kept off-server (2 daily + 1 weekly snapshot).

DDoS Protection

Our web security team has created a protective layer, insulating your Backdrop CMS website from receiving automated DDoS attacks by those throngs of zombie computers that infest other hosts.


Speed up our PHP scripts by using Zend OpCache to store precompiled script bytecode in memory. It will reduce execution times, giving your applications better performance, straight away.


We know how important it is to have a secure Backdrop CMS driven website. We’ll provide you with a free SSL certificate – so you can encrypt communications on both ends – just ask and we’ll deliver.


With many reasons as to why cPanel is the world’s most popular control panel – we’re just happy to provide it with your Backdrop CMS Shared hosting plan for free – so take advantage of it!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run a Backdrop CMS along with _____?

App compatibility is generally not a big worry with any KnownHost plans. Feel free to install open source software, like any of the Softaculous 400+ applications, alongside Backdrop CMS without worries about a major conflict. When it comes to custom/proprietary applications, we’re not going to know for certain how it was coded and behaves. Open a ticket with our support team and ask – then you’ll know for sure.

Do you have referral or affiliate offers?

KnownHost offers a respected affiliate program, with generous and consistent remuneration. Because we have such low customer turnover and high satisfaction scores, we’re able to offer great compensation to those who refer others to KnownHost.

Does KnownHost offer Windows servers?

No, we do not currently offer any Microsoft server products, just as we don’t offer anything from Amazon either.

Over the past couple of decades, we’ve come to appreciate the value of open source software, and operating systems, including their dependability and performance. While many do enjoy Microsoft as a server platform, we find the licensing costs and security issues to be prohibitive. Frankly, we’d rather not expose you to either of those things
