KnownHost Shared Cloud Hosting Plans

Resellers ›

Reseller hosting is a big step up from shared, giving you add resources, plus the ability to have unique logins for cPanel with each domain or account – it’s much easier to administer.


Traditional VPS hosting, with 100% SSD means that you get local, single server control, while enjoying the speeds of SSD’s. It’s fast, secure and easy to know what’s what, or what’s where.

Cloud VPS ›

As you need more and more resources, or faster page loads, the Cloud VPS options for phpESP becomes a clear frontrunner. Not cheap – but is very, very fast, thanks to Ceph and OpenStack.


Why not take advantage of our free SSL certificates that we provide to all customers? It’ll mean you have strong front line security, SEO friendly platform and ensure customers have maximum trust.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are KnownHost servers?

There are a total of 3 different datacenters, currently, in the KnownHost portfolio. We recommend you choose one closest to your target audience, or closest to you, for speed/ease of administration. These include: 2 in USA (west and east) and 1 in EU (Netherlands). Speak with our sales team if you’re unsure which one is best for you.

Can I run multiple apps?

Yes, definitely. You aren’t limited to a single phpESP instance with your account. In fact, we’d encourage you to try out WordPress, or a wiki, a forum, some other blog or email software, or a combination of the above. It doesn’t cost extra, so why not try them out?
