Unmanaged VPS (also known as “Self-Managed VPS”) tends to require an advanced degree of technical know-how and a basic understanding of Linux and the command line. Unmanaged VPS hosting plans allow you to configure and update VPS hosting to your exact preference. But, if you prefer to have an expert manage your hosting and the tech stuff (freeing up more time for you to focus on your business), then Fully-Managed VPS Hosting might be the right choice to fulfill your hosting needs. We also offer an affordable Fully-Managed Cloud VPS hosting service.

One, BestKnownHost offers you just one free dedicated IP address, emerging technologies have helped erase the need for dedicated IPs for SSL and SEO, In the current time, one Ip address can work for:

  • Multiple SSL certificates
  • Search engine optimization (SEO).
  • Site previews and more.

BestKnownHost VPS Hosting offers both Linux (CentOS or Ubuntu) and Windows Server. However, we also have an affordable Managed Cloud VPS platform simplified with one-click WordPress for a hands-off approach with scalability built-in. Our managed Cloud VPS platform will have you up and running within 15mins. For more information view our knowledge-based (KB) articles. 

Yes! In addition to our Windows VPS hosting with 2-32GB RAM resources, you also have the option of adding Plesk Obsidian Web Host (WordPress 1 click app) to aid you in creating and managing your sites. 

Our servers are stationed strategically around the globe, a list of which is available to select from during registration. 

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS or PCI for short) designates security standards to protect cardholders’ credit card data. This means that any entity which stores, processes or transmits credit card’s information are expected to comply with the standards of the PCI-DSS

Setting up your product catalog on our hosting services is the first step to this, you can then employ the service of a third-party provider to process payments on your website, this ensures that your customer’s credit card details are not stored on your server. You can also work with credit card processing software. Whichever choice fits your operation, ensure you get properly informed on the PCI requirements to save yourself from future trouble.

If you are using one of our PCI-certified products, here is a checklist for you to go through. However, if you use other services, we advise you to consult your payment provider (Paypal, Square Online, and or Stripe), and find out what additional requirements you’d need to know. 

Yes, VPS hosting is not designed for beginners, it is best suited for WebDevs and system administrators with the technical know-how of managing a server.
