KnownHost VPS Hosting - Editor's Review

KnownHost strives to be known for quality, not quantity when it comes to VPS hosting. Therefore, KnownHost isn't known for their low prices, instead. they are known for their premium VPS hosting and their excellent reputation for great customer support.

KnownHost focuses primarily on virtual private server hosting for their clients. KnownHost is able to provide superior customer support and hardware support because they do not overload their servers with thousands of customers per server.

VPS Hosting Review has 2 VPS Account">VPS accounts with KnownHost and highly recommends them for those that need VPS web hosting. KnownHost has VPS hosting available in Texas and California and the choice of which datacenter is up to you.

KnownHost is a Linux VPS hosting provider and offers Plesk Linux VPS, cPanel VPS, and DirectAdmin VPS control panels. Unless you are looking for an unmanaged VPS solution, the best choice for most is the VS2 VPS package that has 512MB RAM with plenty of disk space and bandwidth for $35 a month + $5 for any of the three control panels offered. Take a look at our KnownHost VPS plans section for specifics.

KnownHost VPS Hosting - Price Value Review

Note: VPS Host Reviews only considers the monthly rate for KnownHost VPS pricing comparison and rating since the majority of VPS customers prefer to pay monthly.

The down side to KnownHost is since they only focus on VPS servers, they are not a cheap solution and rank poorly when we compare their pricing schedule to other web hosts. But for those that need premium hosting vis a dedicated server or a VPS Hosting Account, KnownHost is probably the perfect fit for you.

Overall, KnownHost pricing for VPS servers is very competitive. They have 5 VPS plans available that start from 192MB RAM, 10 GB disk space, and 200 GB bandwidth and end with 1,280 MB Ram, 70 GB hard disk space, and 1,500 GB bandwidth.

KnownHost VPS Hosting - Reliability Review

In our experience, KnownHost has been very reliable over the last three years we've had VPS servers hosted through them. Any time a scheduled maintenance needs to occur, they have notified us via email and let us know there will be a scheduled outage so we can take action as necessary.

Based on our research with our own VPS hosting reviews and reviews posted on other web properties, we can attest that most people who use KnownHost for either VPS hosting or dedicated servers have been very satisfied. In fact, KnownHost relies on word of mouth advertising for their grown and so far, has been very successful.

KnownHost VPS Hosting - Customer Support Review

KnownHost has several options to get customer support should you have problems with your VPS account or Dedicated Server.

KnownHost offers the following options:
  • Toll free telephone sales and billing support
  • Live chat for billing or sales questions
  • No phone technical support available
  • Technical support ticket system
  • Limited Knowledgebase
  • Community forum
  • Server outage information available on their forum

KnownHost does not currently offer telephone technical support via toll free or toll. They also do not offer a live chat system for technical support. The only way to get support for a technical problem is via their forums or to submit a ticket.

Since we use KnownHost for VPS hosting, we can attest that their customer support via ticket system is excellent and responses are usually received within a half hour, often quicker. We like them because there is very little back and forth required to get a problem resolved, they are very knowledgeable and are able to resolve common issues quickly.
