Secure Hosting

securehost.com Location: Bahamas Founded: 2001

Secure Hosting Introduction

Secure Hosting, founded in 2001, is an offshore hosting provider that offers cloud hosting and dedicated servers in private data centers located in the Bahamas and Bermuda. The primary benefit boasted by Secure Hosting is greater customer privacy and legal protection against data seizure. This is made possible by locating all customer data, web site and database data, and email and web servers in private data centers in either the Bahamas or Bermuda - both countries with strong ecommerce data protection laws.

Secure Hosting does not provide plan details on their website. Instead, the provide a general overview of the products they offer and prompt interested customers to get directly in contact with them for a quotation.

Cloud Hosting

Cloud hosting with Secure Hosting is a managed service backed by 24/7 customer support. Both Windows and Linux cloud systems are available. Robust security features incorporated into the cloud hosting product include firewall and intrusion detection system (IDS) technologies from respected network hardware and software providers such as Cisco, Juniper, and VMWare. In addition, hosting plan access is protected by two-factor authentication and virtual private network (VPN) accessibility.

Dedicated Servers

Secure Hosting advertises that a range of dedicated server configuration options are available including both Linux and Windows systems, firewalled VPN access, load balancing options, a range of memory and processor options, and SSD hard drives. As with the cloud product, dedicated server plans are a managed product backed by 24/7 customer support.

Special Hosting Packages

In addition to the standard cloud and dedicated server hosting options, Secure Hosting offers a few different specialized hosting features.

  • Private cloud hosting is available for customers who need more firepower than they’re getting from a dedicated server, yet want the privacy afforded by a private hosting environment.
  • Clustered hosting plans are available for users with high uptime demands and large bandwidth requirements.
  • PCI compliant hosting is available for ecommerce sites that will be processing credit card transactions on the server.
  • Disaster recovery hosting services are also available and incorporate data storage at multiple Secure Hosting data center locations for greater protection against data loss due to natural disasters.

Uptime Guarantee

For customers who demand 100% uptime, Secure Hosting offers a “dual-homed” hosting option. Customers who purchase this service will have their data mirrored at two different data centers. The hosting product backed by the uptime guarantee can include mirrored dedicated servers, or mirrored cloud hosting environments.

A 100% uptime guarantee is provided for customers who choose this service, and the guarantee covers network connectivity, as well as outages caused by power, cooling, and server failures. 100% uptime can be guaranteed by the redundant server arrangement, and infrastructure redundancy of all power, cooling, and network routing systems.

A 99.9% uptime guarantee is also provided to all customers in the terms and conditions posted to Secure Hosting’s website. However, the maximum total recompense affected customers are entitled to in the event of an outage is 25% of the monthly fee.

Support

Secure Hosting boasts 24/7 support. However, no further details regarding the type of support, average response times, or typical call hold times was available. A knowledge base is provided, but the content of the knowledge base is extremely limited.

Billing & Payment Policies

Secure Hosting’s terms and conditions indicate that all services are invoiced on a monthly basis and that payment by credit card and wire transfer is accepted. Elsewhere on Secure Hosting’s website mention is made that payment by PayPal is also accepted. The terms and conditions indicate that all fees paid are non-refundable, and any refunds issued are provided solely at the discretion of Secure Hosting.

Conclusion

Secure Hosting is an interesting option for customers worried about data seizure. Further research into the applicable legal protections extended by the governments of the Bahamas and Bermuda would be needed to adequately determine the level of legal protection against data seizure provided by offshore hosting with Secure Hosting. Some interesting security features offered by Secure Hosting do stand out as compelling. These features include VPN hosting account access and two-factor authentication for hosting account access.
