KnownHost Expands with New East Coast Datacenter

December 12, 2011 by · Comments Off on KnownHost Expands with New East Coast Datacenter 

Web Hosting ServicesKnownHost LLC announced today that it expanded its VPS offerings to include a New Jersey-based datacenter.  The addition joins its already-established locations in Texas and California, and is the company’s third major datacenter brought online in six years.

The development comes on the heels of the firm’s news earlier this year that it now monitors 201 physical servers, placing it as the number-one webhost among the HyperSpin rankings for reliability and uptime.

According to the newest figures, KnownHost achieves a 99.967% uptime ranking, exceeding the 99.954% benchmark that HyperSpin considers to be a reliable webhost.

“Our growth is allowing us to rapidly invest in more managed virtual private server offerings,” said Justin Sauers, CEO at KnownHost LLC.  “Adding our third datacenter allows our customers to have more flexibility and reinforces our commitment to providing the best products and the most reliable support in the industry.”

Congruent with technological trends in managed VPS systems, KnownHost is recognizing the benefits of investing in the use of additional datacenters.  The Data Center Journal noted in June that according to the Uptime Institute’s inaugural datacenter-industry survey, “nearly two-thirds of respondents (60%) expect to upgrade/renovate an existing datacenter or construct a new data center within the next three years.”

As such, KnownHost has selected a leading datacenter provider in Piscataway, New Jersey, that was ranked by Inc. magazine as a fastest-growing company in America, that holds a certification for operating effectiveness, and that has the resources for world-class support within the surrounding New York City metro area.

KnownHost has been consistently ranked as a top Managed VPS Host in the HyperSpin rankings over the previous four years.  It also received a 2011 Editors’ Choice Award from the Web Hosting Directory and Review site FindMyHost.com, which bases its recognition on both editor-level and consumer-level reviews.

KnownHost Now Monitors 201 Servers

October 6, 2011 by · Comments Off on KnownHost Now Monitors 201 Servers 

Web HostingPhoenixville, PAManaged VPS Hosting provider KnownHost LLC announced today that it now monitors 201 physical servers, placing it as the number-one webhost among the HyperSpin rankings for reliability and uptime.

According to the newest figures published by HyperSpin, KnownHost achieves a 99.959% uptime ranking, exceeding the 99.954% benchmark that HyperSpin considers as a reliable webhost for just one server. KnownHost boasts 200+ servers so this speaks loudly of the service provided with a core focus of uptime.

The announcement closely follows a milestone for the company – building its 11,111th VPS – and also comes on the heels of a major upgrade to all of its VPS and Hybrid Servers earlier in the year. Many customers continue to enjoy the increased resources from that upgrade, including more memory, more disk space and higher bandwidth, and all for the same investment. The firm has also doubled its bandwidth on all existing Dedicated Servers.

“We are excited to achieve another major milestone this year,” said Joel Neimond, Vice President of Sales at KnownHost LLC. “Demand for virtual private servers continues to grow and we’re meeting that demand with our commitment to monitoring over 200 servers. We’re providing the best value to our customers, with the best uptime and reliability available in the marketplace.”

In alignment with demand, industry sources are continuing to measure the benefits of using a VPS.

CodeHill, a blog about the management of websites, forecasted the 2011 outlook for the segment like this: “More and more small and mid-sized businesses are turning to the web in order to reach their customers, exchange information, understand market trends, and conduct day-to-day business. To do this, they are turning to virtual private servers, or VPS. This type of server gives the appearance and capabilities of running their own dedicated machines, while not having to worry about the high costs associated with real dedicated hosting.”

The blog continued to share that: “The cost of personnel to maintain the dedicated company server, energy, and equipment all add up. These costs are something small and medium sized businesses just can’t afford. Hence, 2010 was the year when virtualization deployments saw an increase of 28%, with a borderline 50% adoption rate for production.”

KnownHost has been consistently ranked as a top Managed VPS Host in the HyperSpin rankings over the previous four years. It also received a 2011 Editors’ Choice Award this month from Web Hosting Directory and Review site, FindMyHost.com, which bases its recognition on both editor-level and consumer-level reviews.
