Why Choose KnownHost?

With application hosting, like SimpleRisk, the last thing you need is worrying about downtime at odd hours or why pages aren’t loading quickly. At KnownHost, we’ve built a reputation around our “best uptime on the planet”, which currently is over 99.99%.

Old to New

We’ll move everything from your old host (free). There’ll be minimal downtime and no inconvenience, even when we schedule moves outside normal business hours.


Most every plan includes cPanel control panel (free), so you can quickly and easily do routine hosting functions. Don’t settle for no-name panels that aren’t compatible with industry standard functions.

More Secure

In addition to SSL, we provide free DDoS protection, include antivirus, antispam and server hardening, to help make security concerns a thing of the past.


We’re giving you free SSL certificates and DDoS protection to help your website, email and files without worrying about whether or not your site is secure against attack.


Enjoy the SimpleRisk automated backup system which is outstanding, being preconfigured before 1st login to automatically make 3 full system snapshots (2 daily and 1 weekly) then storing off-server for added security.

SSL Encryption

Encrypting communication, including file transfers, web requests and emails, is a good first step in security. We provide you a free SSL cert to make this a reality.

Your Choice of Linux Hosting Options

Choose Reseller ›

There are many good reasons to pick reseller, including more resources. However, most people choose it for the convenience of giving each domain their own cPanel login – painless DIY administration.

Choose Traditional VPS ›

Growing up from Reseller to SSD VPS is right, once you’ve outgrown the capabilities of reseller hosting. More CPU and I/O resources so your server can deliver more pages to more people.

Choose Cloud VPS ›

If you need more than the traditional SSD VPS – look to Cloud VPS plans. We’ve taken hundreds of SSD servers and combined their efforts so they work in parallel. Unparalleled performance.

Free SSL ›

Of course, you can get premium SSL certs from us, if you need them. Things like EV just don’t happen freely. But, if you’re like many site owners, a regular free SSL cert from us will be just fine.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are there cheaper hosting choices than KnownHost?

We aren’t the cheapest. Instead, we aim to provide a great hosting experience, with fast servers, great uptime and terrific tech support – at an affordable price. So, instead of $1.00 a month, we may charge $3.47 for the same shared hosting plan. Most customers appreciate having fast, dependable and FULLY MANAGED hosting for a couple of dollars extra per month.

Where can I find KnownHost reviews?

Instead of us publishing reviews only on our website, we know that you can easily go to Google and search for “KnownHost reviews”. Doing so will give you dozens of sites where thousands of customers have shared their experiences. Not every review is 5*. We wish they were. But there are a few. Whenever we see one that’s not perfect, we do whatever it takes so that the next time it will be 5*!

Can I install several other apps like WordPress?

SimpleRisk hosting isn’t just one-application hosting, where you get the one tool, but nothing more. Within your hosting account you can easily install additional applications, like WordPress, right alongside.
