Why Choose KnownHost?

GNU social application hosting needs more than speed and dependability to be great, which is why we’re including dozens of features FREE where other hosts would charge extra.

USA Management

Our 100% fully managed hosting plans have entire teams of USA-based technical staff dedicated, 24x7x365, to making sure all matters relating to your hosting environment are working as intended.

DDoS Protection

The security team has worked overtime in creating a layer of protection, stopping your website from receiving automated DDoS attacks by those hordes of zombie computers that plague other hosts.


We’ve got cPanel included in your hosting account, free of charge, so that you can administer all the day to day matters of your hosting, email, databases and files, quickly and without frustration.


Backing up your GNU social account is automatic. Our system makes 3 snapshots, 1 weekly and 2 daily, allowing you to restore to an earlier point in time with just a few quick clicks.

SSL Certs

Protecting your server and your visitors is ideal. That’s why we’re bundling free SSL certificates with your GNU social hosting account. Communication gets encrypted, protecting requests to/from your hosting.


Instant setup is a reality, with the entire hosting account set up, ready to go, backups running fully automated, cPanel configured, DDoS protection in place – all instantly, following your hosting order.


GNU Web Hosting
Powered by Softaculous

Try to find someone who doesn’t like Softaculous, we dare you! We’re such fans of Softaculous that we include the full Softaculous Premium with your Shared, Reseller or VPS hosting account. In just one click, you can have GNU social installed and ready to go – it literally takes seconds. Want to install any of the other 400+ packages? Just a few more seconds – it’s that easy.

Your Choice of Flexible Hosting Options

Reseller ›

GNU social runs well on Reseller hosting. You’ll get more resources than Shared, plus the ability to assign individual cPanel login details to each of your domains/projects – admin chores made easy.


GNU social is smoking fast on an SSD VPS. There are enough resources for more demanding sites with larger audiences, enabling you to handle success without sputtering page loads.

VPS Cloud ›

A Cloud VPS leverages hundreds of SSD-powered servers, all working in tandem, to provide you with the fastest page loads and the peace of mind that cloud-redundancy provides. Cutting edge tech!

SSL Certificates ›

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

Frequently Asked Questions

What backups do I get?

The backup system included with GNU social hosting accounts is fully automated and 100% preconfigured based on a daily cycle. You’ll have access to 2 daily and 1 weekly backup, all stored off-server for added security. The backup system is setup before you ever login the first time. If you need more, just shout and we can get you additional backups.

Am I allowed to spam, hack or share warez?

Um, no. Check our ToS and AUP to get the facts. But, in general, if you plan on doing something that harms others, is infringing or is illegal, we’ll have to vote you off the island.

How does the guarantee work?

After sign-up, you’ll get 30 days to decide if you’re satisfied. Our 100% guarantee covers you, so that you’ll get money back if you don’t want to stick around beyond the 30 days.

Do I get only GNU social hosting?

Your hosting account is under your control, and as such you can install more than just GNU social. Whether you use Softaculous or not, you’ll be able to install multiple applications on your account, limited only by the available resources set out by your plan. Want more? We can upgrade you, no problem.
