What Is Web Hosting?

Web Hosting is the utilization of servers to provide a service in which allows individuals and/or organizations to place a business website, ecommerce store or personal website onto the Internet. A web host provides a set number of resources on their server which allows other computers or devices to access your website by various different methods of telecommunication. By offering a fully managed platform, KnownHost takes hosting one step further across many different services. What does this mean for you? It means that KnownHost is a full partner in your web hosting experience and we will stand with you every step of the way.

What Types of Hosting Does KnownHost offer?

Shared Hosting

Shared Hosting

Shared hosting allows multiple websites to utilize a single server. Packages on these servers have an allotted amount of server resources such as CPU, RAM, Storage, inode and process limit. Our shared hosting uses cPanel with Cloudlinux utilizing account isolation. This allows your website to operate without being affected by other websites on the same server. We offer plenty of benefits on our Shared hosting such as Litespeed Webserver with LSCache, free SSL Certificates, imunify360 and patchman (available per account). Offering all of these services into our Shared hosting allows us to craft a premium product for our customers. We recommend starting a little higher, not just buying for cost, but buying quality hosting for what your website needs 6+ months from now as it grows.

Reseller Hosting

Reseller Hosting

Reseller Hosting is a flexible hosting package. A Reseller is perfect for those with multiple websites or businesses selling or wanting to sell hosting. Paired with Cloudlinux for account isolation allows for a Reseller to set their own limits for each of their accounts. A Reseller will experience the benefits of Litespeed webserver with LSCache, Jetbackup configurable backups, imunify360, free SSL certificates and a dedicated IPv6 for every site. Crafted to provide a premium experience for those wanting to host multiple websites or get into the hosting business.

Managed VPS Hosting

Managed VPS

A VPS (Virtual Private Server) is when a web hosting provider takes one or several servers and applies a virtualization method(OpenVZ) that utilizes containers so that it can have several servers within it, each of which can run its own operating system and can be rebooted independently. With a VPS, each has its own allocation of the physical resources such as disk space, CPU, RAM and premium bandwidth with the freedom of having your own control panel. Our VPS’s are built on 100% SSD Storage infrastructure backed by a redundant and route optimized network. The benefit of managed VPS hosting is that the web hosting provider is responsible for managing the server including system upgrades and configuration so you can focus on running your business!

KVM Cloud Hosting

KVM Cloud Servers

A KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is another type of VPS (Virtual Private Server). KnownHost KVM Cloud Servers operate on a OpenStack cloud platform. This provides full virtualization(not containerization) that is built on storpool distributed storage with enterprise-grade hardware that allows us to provide redundancy while offering the performance that KnownHost is known for. KVM allows you to operate your own operating system with additional benefits compared to your traditional VPS, such as the ability to use your own kernel version. Not only does KnownHost offer managed cloud servers, but now you can experience an unmanaged KVM Cloud Server on KnownHost's excellent network backed by our rock solid infrastructure.

Dedicated Hosting

Dedicated Servers

A dedicated server is a bare-metal server with its own dedicated resources available in various builds for your use exclusively. Dedicated servers can be setup for long term growth of your business or performance for your new application. We only utilize enterprise-grade hardware on all dedicated server provisions. Dedicated servers allow additional features such as software/hardware RAID on top of all of our offered software additions; Litespeed, LSCache, Imunify360, and Cloudlinux, this allows us to help build the best platform for any scenario. KnownHost dedicated servers are housed currently only at our datacenter in Atlanta, GA.

Along with our five major platforms, we offer other services from domains to DDoS Protection plans. No matter your needs, we’re sure KnownHost is your one stop shop for managed hosting and everything in-between!

Green Power Partner Mark

KnownHost goes green! We have recently joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership. On average, KnownHost uses millions of kilowatt-hours of green power annually, which is enough green power to cover more than 100 percent of KnownHost’s electricity use.

This environment campaign has been in the works at KnownHost for years and overall has become a top priority. Moving forward, we look to not only better the company for our customers, but for the environment as well.
