February 22, 2011 - KnownHost LLC announced today that it has built its 11,111th VPS (virtual private server), marking the company’s commitment to service, technology and value since its founding in 2005. The announcement closely follows a major upgrade to all of its VPS and Hybrid Servers, including increased memory, more disk space and higher bandwidth. Many customers are enjoying the increased resources for the same investment, providing better performance and the ability to grow. The firm also doubled the bandwidth on all existing Dedicated Servers. "We are excited to achieve this milestone in 2011," said Joel Neimond, Vice President of Sales at KnownHost LLC. "Our innovative features and commitment to proactively rolling-out upgrades is a formula that delivers real value for our customers year-after-year. Virtual private servers are a growing option for providing reliable, affordable and scalable hosting for businesses and personal endeavors of all sizes." Indeed, web hosting industry predictions include a robust forecast for the virtual private server market. Technology columnist Glenn Fleishman wrote in a recent blog post on Ars Technica, a Condé Nast Digital property, that: “While you've been able to rent a VPS from various companies for several years, options flowered in 2010. The software has matured, robust services are available, and cost is now at a significant advantage relative to performance for the sort of routine Web and database tasks that the vast majority of websites carry out.” In addition, a report from advisory firm Gartner, Inc., anticipates that: “By 2012, 20 percent of businesses will own no IT assets. Several interrelated trends are driving the movement toward decreased IT hardware assets, such as virtualization, cloud-enabled services, and employees running personal desktops and notebook systems on corporate networks.” KnownHost LLC has been recognized twice as a fastest-growing company in the “Top 10 Web Host Awards” from HostReview, and has also received an “Editors’ Choice Award” from Web Host Magazine & Buyer’s Guide.
