Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you’re the user, reseller or server administrator, there’s a set of web pages available that enable you to accomplish tasks with minimal time, effort or technical knowledge.
While you may have heard of one of DirectAdmin’s competitors, DirectAdmin’s popularity is on the rise – offering a combination of features, price and ease of use make it a contender for your panel needs!
Do I need DirectAdmin hosting?
This depends on your needs. DirectAdmin is used by many non-technical developers because of its ease of use. If you’re just starting out in the web industry, DirectAdmin may be a good panel option for you!
What KnownHost plans offer DirectAdmin at no additional cost?
What is VPS Hosting?
Virtual private servers (VPS) are actually the most popular type of servers because they provide more enhanced performance features than shared hosting and they cost less than a dedicated server.
With VPS hosting, users may share a number of physical resources such as disk space, CPU and RAM, but they will still enjoy the freedoms of having a private server, such as having your own control panel.
A big server is called a ‘node’, and the VPS is just a small part of this node. But a virtual private server still allows users to be in charge, fully, of all their own settings and configurations. This freedom allows you to customize and make any changes or adjustments that you need, as situations arise.
Since a virtual private server it is not actually a physical server, you do not have to worry about space or resources (RAM, CPU, Network bandwidth) as these are in the ‘cloud’ and managed by sophisticated datacenter tools at KnownHost.
VPS users still have access to the same resources and features as they would have otherwise, and they still have the freedom to install any application and make changes to those applications. Since you are not actually sharing any hardware, you will not have to be concerned about the physical server maintenance and security – that's where KnownHost's highly skilled technicians come in!
Our VPS nodes are divided into isolated containers that each have their own set of memory, disk space and CPU power - keeping you in control at all times.
How do backups work?
The default backup system is set to take several snapshots, one per day, and store them off-server, so that you can do a full restoration, including files, databases, and email, quickly and easily. Other backup systems are available - just ask the tech/admin team about what you want or need.
Why do you only offer 99.9% uptime guarantee?
We have the PROVEN best uptime in the industry, averaging over 99.99%, across all servers, all time. Anyone who guarantees 100% is hoping you don't check, don't know or don't care enough to pursue compensation for violating their Service Leval Agreement. We'd rather overdeliver than overpromise!
Do you include security and hardening?
As standard, we provide DDoS protection - it's free. We also provide firewall, rDNS setup and even preconfigure many common services and sensitive ports so that they are fully secured. Would you like more? We're now offering an optional selection of Imunify360 security software for those who want even more.
What other optimizations can improve performance?
Start with LiteSpeed. Top that off with your DirectAdmin panel and the gains are astounding - we can't recommend this highly enough. For the money, you cannot beat these performance enhancers – all at a great value.
