KnownHost has an alternative web hosting method, and that is Virtual Private Servers (VPS). This type of hosting gives the customer more power and flexibility when it comes to web hosting. Most web hosting is accomplished through shared servers. Shared servers tend to bog down as activity is added. This can disrupt, to some degree, other web pages and can cause pages to load a little slower than they should.
Utilizing a VPS environment has its advantages. It gives the web site owner the ability to scale up or scale down a web page with taking it off line to complete the task. This eliminates downtime and keeps the web page up and spinning.
VPS servers are custom built according to web page specifications. KnownHost only uses the latest and greatest hardware and software for maximum performance and stability of the hosting system. VPS servers come with the choice of three control panels, and they are cPanel, DirectAdimin and Plesk.
Another hosting option is the hybrid server. They utilize Enterprise Class hardware with a layer of virtualization that fits over the hosting operating system for a smooth transition and operation. Hybrid servers deliver power and are better for web pages that generate high traffic and web sites that utilize multiple applications.
KnownHost’s servers are dedicated and custom built. They are ready to go out of the box and require minimal set up. The servers also have the capability of being customized during the build or after installation. The servers utilize the Linux operating system, which offers increased functionality.
