If you asked people who run their own social networks on KnownHost hosting, the most common answers would revolve around privacy, control, free expression and data retention.
Most public (free) social networks have complex controls on privacy, making every posts, response, conversation or file potentially visable to someone who shouldn't be able to see it, as well as the fact that some other for-profit company has complete access to your private matters.
Being able to approve or ban users gives you administrative ability to control your network, limiting it to just the people, employees, or group(s) that you choose.
Regardless of which political party you support, or none at all, you've surely heard about how the free speech of one or another has landed people in 'Facebook Jail' or has resulted in people being banned from the network for saying/sharing something controversial. With your own social network hosting, you remain in control of these matters.
Public social networks come and go like fashion styles. There's nothing worse than losing your entire history of events because someone else couldn't manage their P&L. Hosting your own puts you in charge. KnownHost automated backups make sure you've got redundant copies to preserve your history - making you the owner and not some 3rd party.
Dependability is the number one, without question. No one will continue using a social network that's frequently offline. It absolutely must be available day and night, year round. Speed is the other. A site must be fast on any device, consistently, without bursts of lag or resource unavailable error messages. You need quality hosting, period. KnownHost is proud to offer the most dependable hosting on the planet, which is matched by our hardware, software and network speeds which are second to none.
There are currently 14 different open source (free) social networks that you can host with KnownHost using the Softaculous one-click installer. Each of them has varying strengths, so you'll want to try them out, or read about them, to decide on the perfect one to fit your needs. Optionally, you can install other linux-friendly network scripts, providing they are open source or that you purchase a license from their developers.
Because KnownHost social network hosting is cloud-based, you can easily flex to scale the resources needed to handle it when your network grows in size. Without downtime or major pains, we can quickly and easily transition you to a larger plan designed to handle any number of users. Your social network won't outgrow KnownHost hosting.
