Known, an open source publishing platform used to empower both individuals and groups to own their social activity online, today announced that it had entered into an exclusive web hosting sponsorship agreement with DreamHost, the Los Angeles-based web host and domain registrar. This exclusive sponsorship will help fund further development on Known, and allow Known users to easily find high-quality hosting for their sites at a special price.
DreamHost will be visible across Known’s websites, and in the administration panel of the software itself. Known has also committed to make installation of its software as simple as possible across DreamHost services.
DreamHost has long been a supporter of open source platforms, and is a major supporter of Open Stack solutions. As well as affordable web hosting, the company provides virtual and dedicated web servers, standards-based block storage, and domain registration.
Known was a graduate of Matter Ventures, a values-based accelerator in downtown San Francisco backed by the Knight Foundation, PRX and KQED. It released its first beta version in September 2014, and powers tens of thousands of social community sites. Its group sites are used by universities and organizations around the world.
