Having your VPS attacked is a nightmare, especially if you don't have DDoS protection. This is why DDoS protection is something KnownHost includes with virtual private servers for no additional cost, simply because we care.
Want To Resell Space And Need A Billing Solution?
WHMCS Starter and Blesta are both available for a modest monthly fee, enabling you or your agency/business to easily control and bill for slices of server hosting resources.
Do you demand High Performance?
LiteSpeed and LSCache are available for a small monthly fee, allowing your website to face superior competition. When speed matters, equipping your VPS with LiteSpeed + LSCache is a great way to maximize performance.
Prefer DirectAdmin or cPanel for your Hosting Environment?
Get the control panel you prefer by selecting your license and operating system during the order process. Either is available - it's strictly a matter of personal preference. Many people opt for DirectAdmin, because of its popularity - and we can't fault them for that. However, it’s your VPS – so you’re in control - you can have other control panels and software installed instead - it's totally up to you (but faster setup times if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin).
Want To Learn And Interact?
KnownHost has a blog, wiki, and forums which have fresh topics that are interesting and relevant, plus informative answers to thousands of common questions. You can also give our server admin, support team and sales staff a shout anytime you have questions or concerns and we'll be happy to answer your questions, recommend hosting solutions and help you make the most out of your VPS hosting plan(s).
