Want to Shut Down Hackers? Our DDoS protection comes FREE.

We understand that the threat of being taken offline is enough to cause a panic - since DDoS attacks can cripple 'ordinary' websites. We're including complementary DDoS protection so you can relax, knowing your websites are protected against denial of service attacks.

Need a Custom Plan? Contact our sales department today!

You don't have to settle from the selection of plans we advertise here. In fact, those are just typical, or common, configurations that are popularly chosen by many users. Whatever your needs, we can tweak the plan to meet your situation.

Like to be Prepared? Backups are a part of our standard offering.

We know disaster recovery is largely a matter of planning and preparing - which is why we've included a robust backup system that takes snapshots of your Cloud VPS hosting environment, making it a breeze to roll-back to earlier times and revert to a state before something went wrong. It's easy and FREE.

Want Fully Managed Cloud VPS Hosting? We only offer managed packages.

Everything we do is managed. If you get a Cloud VPS from us, and choose one of the two standard control panels (DirectAdmin or cPanel) then your plan will definitely be 100% fully managed cloud hosting.

Want KVM? OpenVZ is great, but KVM is all the rage.

Our Cloud VPS range is built on OpenStack and Ceph using KVM, giving you full kernel control with distributed storage. That means your data is split between many more parallel SSD drives, working in unison, to give you the redundancy of the cloud with the speed of massive parallel architecture.

Need a Range of IP's? We include 2 IPV4 addresses plus full IPv6 support assigning an entire /64 IPV6 allocation!

It's getting more and more common for companies to want larger ranges of IP's for a variety of applications and for limiting access to certain internal functions. We don't skimp on providing IPV6 addresses for your VPS. That's why we've provided 2 IPV4 and a full range of /64 IPv6

Need White Label? We think so!

White labeled KVM comes standard. This separates KnownHost from the rest of the industry. You can brand your server and there will be no mention of KnownHost. This feature is awesome for any company who needs to offer hosting or internet logins but doesn't want to sacrifice having their own brand name everywhere. We white label so you retain ownership, control and branding everywhere.

Indeed I enjoy your support and hosting services but it's wrong to disable an important module mailing List without letting your clients know they won't be having mailing List working for theme. Notwithstanding, thank you for your great support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is KVM?

KVM (Kernel Virtualized Machine) is another method of virtualization in which the VPS operates its own server on the host node. KVM provides full kernel virtualization where the user has total control over every aspect of the server. In comparison to a virtualization such as 'OpenVZ' -- where only a shared kernel is used. KVM offers more features for the user who isn't quite ready to step to a dedicated server but still wants to run applications such as Docker.

Why do you called it Cloud KVM?

Our Cloud VPS range is built on OpenStack and Ceph using KVM. This means there is a distributed storage that works behind your KVM that causes your data to split between many more parallel SSD drives that work in unison. Because of this, you are given the redundancy of the cloud with the speed of massive parallel architecture. At KnownHost, your hardware has redundancy built in, making it possible for an entire server failure to have zero data loss and so that the virtual machine can be booted onto new hardware in a matter of minutes. This, combined with backup snapshots and many configuration optimizations means that you won't find a more resilient platform than our Cloud KVM servers.

Is a Cloud VPS as fast as a traditional SSD VPS?

Yes! Thanks to the incredible performance of KVM technology, OpenStack and Ceph. Where a traditional VPS would rely on a half-dozen or more RAID drives locally (all SSD), it doesn't handle as many IOPS as the massively parallel handling of Ceph distributed storage. While 6 RAID SSD drives can be very, very fast, when it comes to larger numbers of accounts on a box - Ceph creates a gigantic pooled pipeline to assorted SSD's, perhaps hundreds, in order to make transfers at an accelerated pace.

Are Cloud VPS's more resilient than other server types?

Definitely. Because of the OpenStack based architecture, your hardware has redundancy built in, making it possible for an entire server failure to have zero data loss and so that the virtual machine can be booted onto new hardware in a matter of minutes. This, combined with backup snapshots and many configuration optimizations means that you won't find a more resilient platform than our Cloud VPS servers.

Can I easily upgrade hardware specs? What about downtime?

With the distributed storage, redundancy, and virtual machine management systems in place, we're able to alter your server to include more storage, CPU and/or network throughput (transfers) on short notice, and without downtime. No need to knock you offline - it's a simple configuration management change we do in the background.

What's the difference between your shared cloud and Cloud VPS plans?

It all boils down to the amount of resources you require. If you've got a number of domains that have small numbers of pages, small load (low visitor numbers) and don't eat resources like a big ecommerce package (Magento for example), then shared or reseller plans might be all you need. When your visitor numbers, page numbers or application demands grow, it's time to move up to a VPS - either traditional SSD VPS or Cloud VPS. Speak with one of our sales reps who can help you look over what you've got, what you're trying to achieve, and put together a game plan that meets your needs and doesn't cost a fortune.
