Your Choice of Flexible Hosting Options

Why Reseller ›

Website owners choose reseller plans because they have more resources, like memory and input/output than the shared hosing plans. Reseller packages are still very affordable.


The choice to move up to SSD VPS is the right decision for those wanting to server larger audiences (many simultaneous users) and those with lots of web pages and apps running.

Cloud VPS ›

Once you try a Cloud VPS, no other solution will be good enough. The blistering fast performance is 2nd to none and has been the subject of many rave reviews across the web – you’ll love it.

SSL Certificates ›

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need Moodle too?

OpenSIS is great for managing student information. It is not a full school coursework, delivering, elearning, LMS-type system. This is why it’s often recommended that people combine Moodle with OpenSIS so that you then have the full school end-to-end functions available throughout. Best part is – OpenSIS is free!

Do I need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are for the biggest, most demanding, most security conscious installations – generally not the right fit for education & training providers until they’ve grown significantly and have massive demands on resources and want to keep control to a single bit of server hardware.

Can I run OpenSIS on shared hosting?

Yes, of course. OpenSIS can be installed onto our most affordable Basic Shared Hosting plans. You’ll get enough resources to install and run, straight away – then upgrade later when the need arises. Upgrades can be done instantly – just ask our sales team when you’re ready.

How do I know KnownHost will be around tomorrow?

That’s a legitimate concern for any company that handles important matters for you. We’ve been around 16 years and have worked hard to establish a reputation of trust.
