Why Choose KnownHost?

Smarty application hosting is something we’ve done for years, having supported open source development and actively promoted PHP-based software. We’re a part of the community and try to give back, daily.


Our backup system is preconfigured to automatically run, making daily system snapshots so that you can roll back a day, or two, or a week, with just a few clicks. It’s free (though competitors charge for this).


Setup is instantaneous. Once you sign up for an account, you’ll have an email in the inbox waiting for you, welcoming you with all the details regarding the account, contacts, and important information.


Not everyone wants a headless setup – because cPanel can make life much easier, saving time and effort. We offer free cPanel on most plans because it’s the defacto standard – we fully support – no problem.


We’re happy to help you move from your current hosting account provider, taking files, emails and databases across the web and configuring your new account. There’s no charge for this service (cPanel).

100% Managed

We offer fully managed hosting because you’d probably rather spend your time troubleshooting Smarty / PHP applications and leave us to worry about any hosting admin and configuration issues.


Combining things like free DDoS protection, free anti-virus, and free SSL – we take security very seriously. If you’d like a hand hardening your account further – just message us to discuss your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about backups?

Having a dependable backup system is absolutely, positively a necessity, especially for software developers who don’t want to risk losses. We take multiple snapshots, automatically, store them off-server, and make available with just a few clicks. You’ll enjoy 2 daily and 1 weekly checkpoint that you can roll-back to, whenever it’s needed.

Can I run _____?

Our ToS and AUP spell out what is and isn’t allowed. Briefly, we believe in legal, ethical participation in the world wide web and ask that our customers uphold those values. That means we don’t allow warez, hacking or similar.

Can I get a refund?

To make sure you get a fair shot at trying out our service, we offer a 30-day satisfaction (money back) guarantee. Please let us know if you’re not happy – but we’d never keep you against your will.

Can I have WordPress as well?

The beauty of Softaculous is that you can easily install apps (any of 400 different ones). You may find that you’d like several different apps simultaneously – and that’s great. If you want a blog like WordPress to run alongside other HTML/PHP/CSS/JS – then by all means – please feel free to install a blog on your account too.
