We take care of the hosting, security and backups of your online knowledge base so you can focus on growing your knowledge base. Not to mention, there is free phone support too.

The fastest and easiest way to put PHPKB knowledge base on your site is by signing up with our fully-managed hosted license.

And best of all, you don't even have to know anything about it. We'll look after it all.

Software as a Service

With our SaaS offering, PHPKB knowledge base software is sold using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model. SaaS customers pay a subscription to access their software over an internet connection. It requires no up-front investment, on-premise installations or ongoing maintenance from the customer. The number of users of your SaaS knowledge base can potentially scale limitlessly as your company grows.

Details of Saas (Cloud) License

We offer fully hosted solutions of PHPKB knowledge management software so you can have an online knowledge base in a few hours and fully working. No downloads required, no software to install. PHPKB knowledge base software is installed on our server for your organization and users, but full administration and access is granted to you and your staff.

How our SaaS model works?

We'll install the PHPKB knowledge base software on a Linux VPS Hosting Plan. When we are done, we will send you links and your new support email address information. When you're ready to use the knowledge base, just tell your users where to go! You can link to the hosted knowledge base from your website, or give out the URL. Nothing needs to ever change; allow us to continue hosting you. While we host you, you'll always be using the most recent software version.

What if you change your mind?

No problem! There are no penalties. For example, you can purchase the PHPKB software outright and we will sign over the hosting package to you so you can continue with the same hosting and existing PHPKB installation! Another option would be to purchase the owned license of PHPKB knowledge base software, and request a copy of the whole installation with a new license key so that you can duplicate your previous installation with data and customizations to host it anywhere you want (including your own servers).

Reasons why the PHPKB Hosted Solution may be right for you

The Best SaaS Knowledge Base Plan

Why buy when you can lease? True, there are many web-based knowledge base software programs out there, and some companies offer knowledge management software as a service (SaaS). So, why is our Hosted Knowledge Base Software better than other hosted knowledge management systems? Check out the advantages below.

Fantastic Online Knowledge Base

This is a well designed knowledge base software application, that is intended to be used online. You have probably already checked out the features of PHPKB knowledge base software, and tried the online demo. So, you know already this is really great software. As the actual developers, we are the only company offering the PHPKB knowledge base solution, on a hosted pay-per-month basis.

Flexible Online Implementations

This is not one single hosted plan, which is shared by many of our clients! This is your very own hosting plan, with your own private installation of the PHPKB knowledge base software, and your own separate database.

This means:

Data Security & Ownership

When you use our hosted knowledge base service, your data is stored on SSL secure, always-updated, regularly backed-up enterprise-class servers. Customer has ownership rights to all data added/uploaded to the hosted KB site.

Online Security

Your own hosted plan means that you can put the whole knowledge management software solution behind a secure server (SSL) if desired, you could even use your own certificate. And, you have your own database, not one shared by other users.

SSL Security

When a visitor enters a SSL-protected knowledge base, the SSL certificate automatically creates a secure, encrypted connection with their browser. Your knowledge base is most secure since SSL is deployed on all pages of the knowledge base. All information passing to and from your hosted knowledge base is now encrypted, making the data virtually un-hackable. Our SSL certificate use an SHA-2 digest method and 2048-bit encryption to protect sensitive data. Together, they provide the best protection on the market today. With SSL secure knowledge base service, you can expect better Google rankings of your knowledge articles. The world's #1 search engine favors HTTPS-encrypted websites and will push them higher in search results. So an SSL not only protects your customers but helps you find more of them.


Your knowledge base data can be exported in SQL format via the application. But since you have your own database, you can get actual backups too. No worries about losing the valuable knowledge base that you've built up, even if you no longer want the knowledge base management software to be hosted for you!

Future Upgrades

As long as you remain hosted with us, we'll upgrade your knowledge base software to the newest version releases.

Dedicated Customer Service

Support (by the actual developer, not just a forum) is included with your hosted knowledge base license. For even faster support or if you have many support reps that will need support, different levels of support contracts are also available. We develop the software ourselves, so we can answer all of your questions.

Customization Service

Customization services are not included in your hosting license price. However, we can provide a quote and timeline for customization services. We can help you duplicate your site header/footer. We offer implementation services and data transfer services. Need features that aren't there yet? We may be able to help. Just let us know.
