Our Unmanaged KVM Cloud is leagues above the rest!

Our Unmanaged VPS product is built on OpenStack and Ceph using KVM, giving you full kernel control with distributed storage. That means your data is split between many more parallel SSD drives, working in unison, to give you the redundancy of the cloud with the speed of massive parallel architecture.

Need a Range of IP's? We include 1 IPV4 address plus full IPv6 support assigning an entire /64 IPV6 allocation!

It's getting more and more common for companies to want larger ranges of IP's for a variety of applications and for limiting access to certain internal functions. We don't skimp on providing IPV6 addresses for your VPS. That's why we've provided 1 IPV4 and a full range of /64 IPv6

Need White Label? We think so!

White labeled KVM comes standard - separating KnownHost from the rest of the industry. You can brand your server and there will be no mention of KnownHost. This feature is awesome for any company who needs to offer hosting or internet logins but doesn't want to sacrifice having their own brand name everywhere. We white label so you retain ownership, control, and branding everywhere.

Indeed I enjoy your support and hosting services but it's wrong to disable an important module mailing List without letting your clients know they won't be having mailing List working for theme. Notwithstanding, thank you for your great support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between managed and unmanaged hosting?

Unmanaged hosting provides a basic environment for you to build your application on top of. It comes with basic network level support only with the guarantee that you can always access your unmanaged VPS. Whereas with managed hosting you are afforded a full 24/7/365 technical support department that can assist you with any software level issues that you may encounter.

Can I switch from unmanaged to managed hosting?

We cannot migrate instances between the two architectures, however, rest assured our staff will work with you to provide a migration plan from our unmanaged product to our managed product line. Once you have purchased a managed product line our professional services team can work with you to port the data over for a nominal fee.

Can I easily upgrade hardware specs? What about downtime?

With the distributed storage, redundancy, and virtual machine management systems in place, we're able to alter your server to include more storage, CPU and/or network transfers on short notice, and without downtime. No need to knock you offline - it's a simple configuration management change we do in the background.

What's the difference between your shared cloud and Cloud VPS plans?

It all boils down to the amount of resources you require. If you've got a number of domains that have small numbers of pages, small load (low visitor numbers), and don't consume resources like a big ecommerce package (Magento for example), then shared or reseller plans might be all you need. When your visitor numbers, page numbers or application demands grow, it's time to move up to a VPS - either traditional SSD VPS or Cloud VPS. Speak with one of our sales reps who can help you look over what you've got, what you're trying to achieve, and put together a game plan that meets your needs and doesn't cost a fortune.
