KnownHost’s Dedicated Hosting Plans Compared

KnownHost offers a wide selection of dedicated hosting plans designed to fit varying needs, depending on your budget, expected resource demands and desire for included server management (and whether or not you need root access).

If you’ve found Reseller Hosting resources to be less than you need, but enjoy having full server management, the next logical step upward is Semi Dedicated Hosting.

Semi Dedicated Hosting

With Semi Dedicated plans, you’ll get all the goodies found in Reseller plans, like control panel, high performance web server, accelerated hardware and of course full server management – all standard.

  • like reseller hosting on steroids
  • between reseller and VPS options (less than fully dedicated)
  • includes SSD, LiteSpeed, cPanel/WHM
  • $35, $55, $70 or $90 per month
  • fully managed
  • no root access

Budget Dedicated Hosting

Stepping up from Semi Dedicated plans, Budget Dedi Hosting offers plenty of resources, high speed hardware and full root access. Be aware – it’s unmanaged hosting, so you’ll want to consider this option only if you’re comfortable handling all your own technical issues. Plans are very inexpensive, hence the “Budget” name.

  • LiteSpeed and cPanel/WHM added cost

  • fully dedicated server with budget-minded resources and prices
  • includes SSD
  • LiteSpeed, cPanel/WHM added cost
  • $158 to $373 per month
