Why Choose KnownHost?

Choose phpBB application hosting that’s packed with features you’d pay extra for from other hosting companies. We listen to what site owners want and add to this list regularly. Here’s a few of the things we include free….

SSL Certs

You can get a free SSL certificate from us, for your domain hosted with KnownHost, just by asking. We’ll install it for you too – just ask, it’s all a part of our managed hosting program.


phpBB, and hosting accounts in general, can take some time to manage. So, why not make use of a free cPanel account from us? You’ll find yourself saving time with each task – it’s a breeze (and free).


We don’t charge extra for backups – why would we? You get a preconfigured, fully automated, backup system from the instant your hosting account is created – before your first long (it’s free).

100% Managed

We’re happy to provide you with server management at no added cost. Let us handle the server technical matters, while you deal with managing your phpBB forum. Again, it’s a free service.


With Shared, Reseller and VPS plans, we’ll do the initial setup and configuration of your account without an additional charge. It’s all a part of bringing you online as a new customer.


Getting moved over from your old hosting to KnownHost is just a part of the process – we’d never charge to get you switched. Migrations will be arranged to minimize service disruption.

KnownHost Shared Cloud Hosting Plans

Cloud VPS ›

For the truly discerning site owner, Cloud VPS plans use SSD-powered servers in tandem with cloud technology to accelerate 2nd (and subsequent) page loads – incredible caching software deployed.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Are backups automated?

Yes. We won’t stop you from making additional, manual backups – that’s just being prudent. However, we include a backup system that automatically makes system snapshots which you can use for rolling back to the previous day, two days or week prior. Backups come preconfigured with all hosting plans.

Do you allow ______?

We are a family-friendly, responsible member of the Internet. As such, our ToS and AUP spell out things we won’t allow. These include things like hacking, spamming, warez and intellectual property infringement. If it’s illegal – don’t do it!

What if I want my money back?

Our goal is your happiness. So, if you’re not thrilled with your phpBB hosting, and would like a refund at any point during the first 30 days after signing up, just say the word and we’ll refund you. It’s unconditional, no questions asked – we guarantee our hosting plans.

Can I also install ____?

A phpBB hosting plan isn’t limited to just phpBB. In fact, you can install WordPress (or other blogs), galleries, guestbooks, ERP’s, CRM’s, or whatever you’d like (as long as you stay within the limits of resources available for your particular plan). If you need more capacity, so you can install more things, just say the word and we’ll arrange an upgrade for you.
