High quality services with amazing support

Been using KnownSRV services for more than 6 years now which include shared hosting, VPS and dedicated servers.

Shared hosting - Cheap, good resource management, not a single downtime, good read/write disk speeds, good network ...Read Morespeed. As some sites grew on shared hosting and got a fair amount of visitors, speeds were still pretty good without noticable difference. Moved those to VPS after a while.

VPS - Have multiple virtual private servers at the moment ranging from smallest plans up to v3. Had a single downtime in past few years on one vps which lasted about 1 day and it was partially my setup mistake, partially security upgrades performed on their end. Received 3 months for free due to 1 day downtime. Prices may be a bit expensive for some people, but if you are looking for quality like I do, don't look further. Network speeds, disk read/write and resource management between virtual machines - all good. Even the smallest openvz VPS plan with 1GB of memory works very well with 5 medium sized sites, mail server, a few docker containers and a few other things.

Dedicated servers - Three dedicated machines are currently working for about a year and a half, absolutely perfect - no a single issue with performance. Actually, had only one issue upon installing a newer .iso image over ipmi as something did not talk well about the drivers, but it was installed by them within a day.

Reliability - I am not afraid for my data with them, but I still have backups provided by them.
Pricing - For the quality I receive, this is not expensive. Will rather pay a bit more and sleep well, than get woken up in the middle of the night.
User friendly - Everything that was asked for, it was received. Even some extra services. ;)
Support - Did not have to contact support for any issues, except for adding new IP addresses to existing VPS. This was usually resolved within 6-24 hours.
Features - Customizable options in cpanel (shared hosting), good dedicated server customization - from backups, RAID controllers, power supply redudancy ect.

Overall recommended if you mind about quality of your service, but don't mind paying a bit extra than what others ask for.

A managed service that actually manages your services!

Never had a single downtime in the entire time I've been with KnownSRV. The prices are very reasonable for the awesome support and extensive managed features. I recommend all friends and colleagues to host with KnownSRV and will continue to do so in the future. I'd give 11/10 stars :P

Expert Overview

Newer Hosting in UK and Croatia

Knownsrv.com is a hosting concern that was started in 2013 and is based in the UK and Croatia, operating out of data centers in Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Romania. They have done a good job getting their company started and while still fairly small seem to have developed a fairly good reputation for providing good services.

Uptime & Reliability

Three Data Centers & 99.9% Uptime Guarantee

With three different data centers in use, it would seem that Knownsrv would be able to easily accommodate their 99.9% uptime.  Notices on the details page state that the firm does not “oversell” their capacity so customers can depend on 100% of the resources they pay for being available.


Nice hosting with Lots of Options

Web hosting, shared hosting and dedicated servers are all offered by Knownsrv. Each different product has a variety of levels to choose from, but all include several different management tools


Very Helpful Support Team

Knownsrv’s support functions requires a customer logon to access, but the knowledgebase appears to be well-populated and an email app is available to customers to submit questions.  Also, during my visits to the website for information, I was greeting three different times by a chat window with what appeared to be a live person behind it.

There are several advertisements on the site’s webpages that state support is offered 24/7/365.  While there is only an email feature for inquiries, this technique does help prioritize service requests that overall are a benefit to all users.


Easy to Understand Pricing

Web hosting packages start at $2.95 monthly and include 5 GB of disk space, 30 GB of bandwidth, unlimited domain names and email accounts. At the high end, the monthly cost of $14.95 and comes with 20 GB of disk space, 400 GB of bandwidth, and the same unlimited allowances for email and domains.  Free migration is included, and a gigabit connection is standard on all web hosting accounts.

VPS starts at $19.95 per month and includes 30 GB of disk space, unmetered incoming bandwidth, 500 GB of outbound bandwidth, and one usable CPU and 1 GB of RAM. At the high end, disk space is increased to 200 GB, unmetered incoming and 5 TB of bandwidth, 3 CPU’s and 8 GB of dedicated RAM at $59.95 per month. Setup times on VPS is listed at between 1 and 24 hours and a discount of 15% is available for paying for 1 years’ service in advance. A dedicated IP address is available for $2.00 per month if desired.

Dedicated server prices are available only by quote, which is perfectly reasonable, the details page states that support services are included with all dedicated server items.

Prices are clearly explained on the respective pages and a 15% discount is offered for customers paying for one year of service in advance.  There aren’t any references regarding tax, but each country that Knownsrv does business in have value-added taxes that range from 18 to 21%. As with any agreement, customers would need to inquire prior to committing to a contract just what exactly is included in the price.


Newer Company giving Great Service

Overall, Knownsrv seems to be a well-organized company with many different services to offer.  Granted, not many sites offer it but I would like to see a few graphics or reports on the availability and response times of their VPS or shared hosting platforms. The company offers quite a few different software tools that are available with any package to make the customer’s site as easy to manage/maintain as possible.

Knownsrv also points out that while they aren’t the cheapest provider, they make the very valid statement of “quality comes at a prices”.  It seems that the company is ready to back their value statements up with a high-quality product.
