Web HostingPhoenixville, PA – is proud to announce it is donating their flagship Managed VPS Hosting service to RFA.

Haiti has a large number of children who live outside their parents’ homes, known as Restavec.  Restavek are often in a situation of unpaid domestic service where they are deprived of their most basic rights.  In pre-earthquake Haiti, there were about 250,000 Restavec.  These children are not allowed to go to school and they have no education.  The United Nations defines these children as being in slavery.

“I was approached by Patrick Nommensen, a board member of the organization,” said Justin Sauers, Director  of Sales at  “RFA is doing good work now, and after learning what some of their future plans are to expand their outreach, we really wanted to be a part of it.”

“We’d like to thank KnownHost for the generosity,” said Patrick Nommensen, board member of RFA.  “This donation will help us expand our website presence, recruit additional volunteers and reach more supporters from around the world.”

The Alliance pledges to offer a safe, stable, family-centered environment for these children.  They get a chance to have the childhood they deserve – nothing like their life as a Restavec.

KnownHost is widely recognized for its fast growth, and now monitors 230 physical servers for its Managed VPS Hosting service, placing it as the number-one web host among the HyperSpin rankings for reliability and uptime.  KnownHost achieves a 99.979% uptime ranking, exceeding the 99.954% benchmark that HyperSpin considers to be a reliable web host.
