Why Choose KnownHost?

We start by giving you free, hands-off migration and setup support. Our USA-based support team takes care of everything from installation of your free control panel to DNS configuration, so you don’t have to do a thing. During setup, we give you a choice of three world-class datacenters – based in the US and the EU – if you’ve got targeted hosting needs.

High-Performance LiteSpeed & LSCACHE Optimization

We’re all about giving our customers the best possible hosting performance, so all Shared Cloud hosting plans come with free, high-performance LiteSpeed and LSCACHE software.

Backup Systems

Backups are a critical to the KnownHost Open Journal Systems hosting platform. 3 different snapshots are available at any time, all stored off-server (2 daily and 1 weekly by default).


With KnownHost, you not only get outstanding USA-based support, but also can be a part of our thriving community of like-minded site owners from around the world – forums, blog, social media – all active.

Free ClamAV

We include free ClamAV to help secure all hosting plans, giving you protection against threats like malware, viruses, trojans and more. Combine that with the free Apache SpamAssassin and DDoS, for the win.

Stopping Attacks

Zombie computers are being used for automated attacks, more and more, because some hosts haven’t taken steps to stop them. At KnownHost, you get free DDoS protection.


We provide you with a free SSL certificate so your visitors communications and your email transfers stay encrypted, giving you added trust, security and peace of mind. SSL certs are free.

Our reseller plans are very popular because they enable you to do a lot more (like individual cPanel accounts for each domain), without big prices. If you have multiple domains or projects this is ideal.


We’ve been in the managed VPS business for a decade and are consistently rated as one of the best in the business. Tap into more resources and see why a VPS is a smart move for your site(s).

VPS Cloud ›

Taking speed a step further, we created a cloud platform built around SSD servers, enabling them to work together to complete tasks faster, you’ll find our Cloud VPS performance is truly amazing.


Security matters – and SSL certificates are freely included with hosting accounts, so that you can secure your information exchanges between server and visitor. Premium SSL is available for a fee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I install other software?

Of course. You aren’t limited to the 400 apps in Softaculous. If it can safely run in our Linux hosting environment, then why not? There are limits to how many apps you can install and run simultaneously, depending on your plan storage, CPU cycles, etc. However, there’s plenty enough to do a lot. Of course, hacking, spamming and IP infringing activities are prohibited.

Can I get my money back?

A guarantee of your satisfaction is essential – and we stand by our 30-day 100% satisfaction guarantee, which means you get your money back if you change your mind. Please let us know if you have any issues or concerns, so that we can strive to improve our services!

Will choosing Shared Cloud hosting with KnownHost mean throttled resources and performance for my Open Journal Systems app?

Unlike some hosting companies out there, our Shared Cloud hosting won’t leave you with missing or restricted resources. We shield every account, so you know that the SSD storage, premium bandwidth and everything else you’ve paid for is 100% dedicated towards your use.
