Server Security & Reliability
Security services are an important part of managing your domain. Basic server security just doesn’t cut it, our servers have advanced security in place to help minimize your website’s chance of being compromised.
- Tier 1 Server – best and most reliable option available
- Extensive data center security features
- Fault-tolerant power redundancy
- Powerful industrial class generators
- 24/7 monitoring
- Liebert temperature-controlled server environment
- N+1 and redundant AC/DC UPS Power
- Ample cooling capacity

CycloneOS provides server backups for both your website and database files. Our Dell servers with Intel processors and RAID storage run on a secured CentOS Linux Operating System within a 24/7 monitored data center. Each hosting account includes cPanel account management software to control your email accounts, web page statistics, subdomains and more.
If you’re not familiar with cPanel, it is the industry standard in web hosting and because of it’s ongoing popularity it is widely supported and has an easy to use, graphic management interface.
Through our standard cPanel user interface, clients can create and manage your email accounts; you can change passwords on existing email accounts, create new accounts, changing the mail box size, creating mailing lists and establishing email forwarders. You can also create auto responders that notify senders that the recipient is out of the office.
Because our hosting service is designed specifically for businesses, CycloneOS does not filter mail at the server level. We believe it is important that you be delivered each email you receive and allow your computer software to filter the spam, so you do not miss an important email from a client that the web server may inadvertently mark as spam. You have complete control over your spam filters, black lists and white lists.
What is an SSL certificate? Why should you be concerned about it?
SSL Certificates give customers assurance that your website is safe. They will also be reassured that you’ve taken steps to secure their data during transactions. SSL Certificates link together:
- a server name
- a domain or host name
- an organization’s name and location.
SSL is one of the most common ways that websites secure credit card transactions. It also secures logins and data transfer. Many social media sites have begun using SSL to secure browsing.
To initiation secure browser sessions, a company needs to install the SSL Certificate on its web. The organization needs to go through different types of verification depending on the type of SSL Certificate it applies for. Once the SSL Certificate is installed, it’s possible to connect to the site through https://www.domain.com. This tells the server to establish a browser connection that is secure. Once this type of secure connection is established, the traffic between the web browser and browser will be secured.
Our organization can provide you with full verification SSL Certificates with quick verification. You can put an SSL authentication logo on your site to assure customers that their transactions will be secure. Once you have purchased a hosting account through Cyclone OS, we can help you install the SSL certificate. You will need a unique IP address for each SSL Certificate. We can set up your unique IP address when we install the SSL Certificate.
CycloneOS offers multiple web hosting packages that are tailored to fit the customer’s individual needs. Customer sites are not suspended or cut off if they exceed bandwidth limit. There are no penalty fees or higher rate charges for exceeding bandwidth. Instead, overages are charged at the same rate as the hosting plan. For an additional charge, we offer optional SSL certifications with a dedicated IP address.
