Also included with your shared hosting is Imunify360, the automated security solution which is designed to protect your website from attacks, malware and much more. Again, we include it free of charge, because it's important.

BACKUP

Just because your account is cloud-based doesn't mean you don't need a backup system.

This is handy when data is corrupted, errors are made, defacement or any other scenario. Again, backups are at no additional cost - they come included.

PERFORMANCE = LiteSpeed + LSCache

Performance matters - it impacts the user experience, can limit sales conversions, has a massive impact on search engine optimization, and should be a leading concern when you consider a host. That's why we use LiteSpeed and LSCache for a performance like no other. Normally an add-on expense, we included at no additional charge.

CONVENIENCE - Softaculous

You want to spend time running your business or servicing clients and not dealing with hosting administration, which is why we've gone the extra mile by including the Softaculous 1-click installer (and its 400+ scripts) with your cloud account at absolutely no additional charge.

CONVENIENCE - Migrations

Getting your domains, emails, databases, images and files moved from one host to another can be technical agony. At KnownHost, we remove that stress by handling the migrations for you. Quick, easy and with a minimum amount of downtime all for FREE.

Shared Hosting FAQs

What is Shared Hosting?

Shared Hosting is the basic/simple hosting of a single website. It's meant for those who want a place of presence on the web. Used by individuals, single owner businesses and/or overall commercial websites. Shared Hosting gives you only what you need for your website.

How does Shared Hosting benefit me?

With Shared Hosting you don't have to worry about server updates; KnownHost’s expert technicians take care of all updates, leaving you the ability to simply focus on your website. You get a set plan with a specific amount of resources; usually chosen in mind of your expected growth.

What's different between Shared and Dedicated hosting?

The differences come down to resources and use-case. With Shared Hosting; you're on a set plan with specific limitations, only upgradeable by purchasing a larger package. Dedicated Hosting is usually placed on Dedicated Servers for larger websites with large allocations of resources at their disposal.

Are your Shared packages cloud based?

Yes! We built our shared hosting packages knowing that users would demand ultra fast response times and file transfers. So, we designed these plans with this in mind. We've avoided slow network storage, old hardware, aging network devices and instead gone with state of the art SSD drives, network appliances and RAID, so that you have speed, security and maximum uptime.

Are shared hosting plans fully managed?

Yes! Our server admins in Birmingham, Alabama, USA are committed to 100% fully managed services, including our shared hosting plans. At KnownHost, low cost doesn't mean bad service.

Are shared hosting packages cloud based?

Yes! We built our shared hosting packages knowing that users would demand ultra fast response times and file transfers. We've avoided slow network storage, old hardware, aging network devices and instead gone with state of the art SSD drives, blazing fast network appliances and RAID, so that you have speed, security and maximum uptime.

Are resources protected so someone else's account can't throttle mine or take me offline?

Definitely. We use optimized Cloud Linux to create a secure shared hosting environment that seals and protects your instance from every other one on the server. The actions of another site won't negatively impact yours, guaranteed.

Do your cheapest plans have the same management and uptime %?

Of course. We aim for 100% uptime and provide full management to all our clients. We don't provide any second class services to any of our customers.

Will I get SSH access?

Sure you will! We know people still like to manage, update and access their shared hosting accounts via SSH and SFTP. So, we've included both of them in our shared hosting accounts.

Do I get more than just a shared IP address?

We know that savvy site owners care about things like SEO and email marketing, plus the fact that both of these benefit from having their own IP address. That's why we include 1 FREE IPV6 address for each account. This gives you a unique place of your own on the web.

Can I have multiple PHP versions?

Yes. You can choose from PHP 5.6, 7.1 and 7.2. Pick whatever is most secure, speedy and compatible with your specific application needs.

What if I change my mind?

We'll work with you on scheduling and make sure that you have the perfect plan to fit your needs without spending an arm and a leg.

4 Pillars of Success [FIRM]

The 4 pillars of shared hosting success follow the acronym FIRM which stands for:
- Features
- Isolation
- Resources
- Management

The best features of shared hosting

There are a lot of choices out there in the market for shared hosting – and many of them don’t include the basic features you’d want or need. In fact, most charge you extra for basics like backups, firewalls, control panels or one click installers.

At KnownHost, we understand that you’ll want all the whistles and bells, without spending extra cash. That’s why we’ve bundled them into our basic, standard, and professional shared packages!

You get cPanel control panel. You get LiteSpeed with LSCache. You get Free SSL certificates. You get Softaculous one click installer with 400 ready to go scripts. You get Imunify360 security. Free backups? Yes, they’re included. Free migrations? Of course, they’re included too. We believe we provide the best shared hosting in the business but if you find something we’ve left out – just let us know!

Isolation

One of the biggest weaknesses of most shared hosting is the fact that resources are pooled and shared amongst all the client accounts on the server. If one goes wild and takes all the bandwidth or disk I/O, the others suffer. This is the problem of isolation – or lack thereof.

KnownHost have taken over a year to design the perfect Shared Hosting – and a key component of that solution is the perfect isolation of client accounts. There’s no way that one account will interfere with the resources of another!

If you’re on shared hosting currently – it’s time you checked with your provider to find out how they’re ensuring you’re protected against the resource-suckers who share the server with you! If they aren’t using Cloud Linux and LiteSpeed – they probably haven’t even thought about how to keep you protected against the gaffs of others!

Resources

The easiest way for cheap hosting companies to make a buck is to give less than the minimum necessary resources, as standard, then charge extra to forcibly upgrade someone until they get the resources they need. This is NOT how things work at KnownHost.

Even the basic shared plan at KnownHost include 5GB of storage with 1 domains and 5 emails – more than enough for a decent sized small business website. If yours are bigger than this – consider the $9.97 plan or even a VPS. Remember, the $9.97 plan includes unlimited domains, emails and storage (within AUP limits of course – just to prevent crazy buyers trying to host sites the size of Wikipedia on a plan for under $10 a month).

Management

Anyone can offer unmanaged shared hosting. In fact, more companies offer this than any other hosting option, period. Unfortunately for business owners – management is one of those things they need more than any other hosting option, period.

Make the Switch Today over to Managed WordPress Hosting with KnownHost.com

24/7/365 support is one thing. It’s necessary. It’s a must. You just have to have support when you need it.

Fully managed hosting is something you don’t know you need until you need it – like health insurance or a spare tire. At KnownHost, we pride ourselves on everything we include with our managed hosting options, even when that hosting costs just $3.47 per month.

As a small business owner, you have plenty of things in the day to keep you busy – to keep your mind occupied – and to worry about, without having hosting being one of those things. Leave the worries to the experts – and get a managed hosting package – you deserve it!

Need room to grow? No problem with KnownHost’s scalable SSD Hosting with no downtime.

Decision Time

You can probably find unmanaged, shared-pool hosting, for $1 a month – maybe less. Or, you can get feature-rich, fully isolated, massive resourced and the best fully managed Shared Hosting for as low as $3.47 per month.

Make the Smart Choice - KnownHost.
