Welcome to a reliable host.
Why choose a reliable host?
Is SEO top mind here? Nope. Security is top mind at Calico. We've installed security features other hosts don't. We mandate separation between our email users and shell access. All email users are "virtual users" while shell users are real users, creating less opportunity for server compromise, allowing us to provide you the most reliable hosting possible.
A secure server protects your privacy
While most other hosts allow users to read other clients' folders (enabling them to find sensitive username and password databases,) all of your folders on CalicoHosting.com are readable only by you.
CalicoHosting.com's MySQL is not open to world access, helping to protect your important data from hackers on the Internet. You can use SSH to access MySQL from home with a GUI client or access it through a phpMyAdmin page.
We protect our servers with mighty firewalls - existing solely to filter out the nasty packets. We open only ports crucial for your web site and email functionality and enforce strong passwords to prevent bastard hackers from guessing your password.
Change rooted (chrooted) hosting
All of our services (Apache, MySQL, Email...) run in a chrooted hosting environment. Were a CalicoHosting.com client account compromised, an attack would not gain access to the main server.
