Drupal Security is enhanced via: Linux Server Administration "Best Practices"; Automatic & Managed Updates; SiteLock; plus other included and optional add-on features.
ViUX® Shared Cloud CMS Hosting features Parallels® Plesk Automation; and Private Cloud Servers feature optional Parallels® Plesk Panel – both of which support 1-Click Drupal Installation. This provides an easy method of installing Drupal into your Website, without the need for manual FTP upload, creating a database, etc... getting you started with Drupal quickly. This also allows future Drupal updates to be handled within Plesk. However, you can still choose to undertake a manual install for greater customization and control.
Drupal SHARED Cloud Hosting is distributed across separate Linux (CentOS 6.x) 64-Bit Cloud Servers for: Web & Database – with current versions of: Apache; MySQL; & PHP (aka "LAMP"). Email (optional) via Postfix w/RoundCube for WebMail. Includes: CloudFlare; SiteLock; MightyCall; and much more... from $3/mo.
Drupal + (SM) SmarterMail SHARED Cloud Hosting is distributed across separate Linux (CentOS 6.x) 64-Bit Cloud Servers for: Web & Database – with current versions of: Apache; MySQL; & PHP (aka "LAMP"). This plan is a Linux / Windows Hybrid, as Email is on Windows 2012 64-Bit via SmarterMail Enterprise with MS-Exchange ActiveSync, plus CommTouch Antispam & Antivirus. Includes: CloudFlare; SiteLock; MightyCall; and much more... from $4/mo.
Drupal PRIVATE Cloud Server – with: 512MB of Memory; 1Ghz CPU Power on 2 vCPU Cores; & 20GB of Diskspace. Linux (CentOS 6.x) 64-Bit; Apache; MySQL; PHP (LAMP); and Email (optional) via Postfix w/RoundCube for WebMail. Includes: CloudFlare; SiteLock; MightyCall; and much more... from $15/mo.
Drupal PRIVATE Cloud Server + Parallels® Plesk Panel – with: 1GB of Memory; 1Ghz CPU Power on 2 vCPU Cores; & 20GB of Diskspace.

SHARED Cloud CMS Hosting supports from 1 to 10 Domains; whereas PRIVATE Cloud Servers support UNLIMITED Domains.
SHARED Cloud CMS Hosting supports from 10 to 100 Mailboxes; whereas PRIVATE Cloud Servers support up to UNLIMITED Mailboxes * – depending on the selected Mail Server, license, and resources.
* Assuming that the Private Cloud Server is configured with enough resources (i.e. Memory, CPU & Diskspace) – Qmail and Postfix as the Mail Server both support UNLIMITED [Mailboxes]; whereas SmarterMail (currently requires a second server) supports 250 Mailboxes by default, and can be upgraded to 500, 1000, 2000, or UNLIMITED Mailboxes.
The amount of Cloud Server Memory that is available to run the CMS, Database, etc... Memory does NOT relate to SHARED Cloud CMS Hosting because the servers are "Shared" and resources are therefore allocated at the server (not subscription) level. By default, PRIVATE Cloud Servers provide 1,024 MB (1 GB) of Guaranteed Memory – which can be upgraded to higher levels, as more Memory means better performance and increased server stability.
Diskspace is the amount of SSD Cloud Storage that is provided to store the CMS Website(s), Database(s), Email Messages, Log Files, etc... SHARED Cloud CMS Hosting supports from 3 to 300 GB of Diskspace; whereas by default PRIVATE Cloud Servers provide 20 GB of Diskspace – each of which can be upgraded as needed.
TRAFFIC – The amount of monthly Traffic (i.e. Data Transfer / Bandwidth) provided for all CMS Websites Hosted within the subscription. Every Website visitor and every Email sent or received results in some amount of Traffic. ViUX® provides "UNLIMITED" Traffic for our CMS Cloud Hosting, which means that we do not impose a limit on the total amount of Traffic used by the CMS Website(s) or Email; however there is a practical limit to the total amount of simultaneous data that can be handled by a Cloud Server's Virtual-NIC Card as generated by (X) number of Websites and Web Services Hosted on that server. Therefore if it is known that a CMS Website will have ultra-high traffic needs, we highly recommend Hosting on a Dedicated Server.
ViUX® SHARED Cloud CMS Hosting features Parallels® Plesk Automation; and PRIVATE Cloud Servers feature optional Parallels® Plesk Panel – both of which provide a Web Interface by which to control all aspects of the CMS Website(s) and Web Services, including: Databases; Email; FTP; etc... as well as the CMS itself and all other aspects of your service. Plus you can use the included Parallels® Web Presence Builder to create additional Websites online in minutes (such as within sub-Domains of the primary CMS site) – using any one of hundreds of professional Website Templates.
Who? What? When? Where? How? – Having such questions about your Websites and its visitors, and not being able to answer them, can be detrimental to your business success. ViUX® Cloud Hosting features full Website Log File Reporting via: SmarterStats (Windows); AWStats; Webalizer; Google Analytics; and other tools – so you'll always have the answers.
Cloud Hosting service without SUPPORT is NOT much of a service... ViUX® Cloud Hosting features 24 / 7 / 365 Support via Live Chat; Email / Ticket; & Toll-Free Phone. All tickets feature a 1-Hour Response SLA from our staff of EXPERT Hosting Support Technicians.
Security is paramount to protect you * ... Not just protection from annoying SPAM, but also protection from Email VIRUSES via Cyren® Premium Antispam & Zero-Hour Antivirus (SmarterMail) or Parallels® Premium Antivirus & MagicSpam® (Postfix); keeping your Email content PRIVATE with SSL/TLS Encryption; protecting your Website from HACKERS with FortiGate® Firewalls & FortiGuard®, Symantec® EndPoint Protection, Applicure® DotDefender, SiteLock®, and CloudFlare®... ViUX® Cloud Hosting provides a level of protection from all such hazards (and more) to let you focus on running your business.

New to Web Hosting? Confused? Do you have questions about what the various features and options are; what they do; or why you even need Web Hosting in the first place?
To answer these and other questions we suggest that you watch some of our videos (below)... or: give us a call | chat with us live – and we will gladly answer any questions that you may have; and help you to select the right ViUX Hosting Service to meet your specific needs and budget. We know that it can all be rather confusing, so we are here to help...
Watch the Video: Why shouldn't I go for that unlimited plan? Beware overselling.
ViUX Hosting does not resell the same Diskspace, Email Accounts (Mailboxes) and other such resources over and over and over again to countless customers in expectation and hope that most of them will never come anywhere near to using the full amount of resources that they have been promised (sold). Sadly, many Web Hosting Providers do engage in this dishonest and disrespectful practice (called "Overselling"); and many more are fast adopting the same, because they feel that they must do so in order to compete with those that already have.
Because we at ViUX® believe that there should be "Truth in Hosting", you will not see any ViUX Hosting Plans offering: "Unlimited" Diskspace; "Unlimited" Mailboxes; or even: 100 GB of Diskspace; 1000 Mailboxes; etc... all for less than $5 per month! Really!?!
We would consider such an offering to be dishonest, because resource quantities of those levels would cost far more than $5 to provide and still maintain profitability, without engaging in massive overselling of those same resources to a large group of unsuspecting customers. It is for this reason that we also consider overselling to be disrespectful to customers.
To offer such incredible resource levels for such a ridiculously low price is only possible if the provider is large enough to take the hit and is actually willing to lose money to grow their customer base; or as is most often the case... The provider really has no intention of honoring those resources and has language in their Terms of Service (TOS) and Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) giving them an out by basically disallowing usage above a certain level (or percentage) and/or by restricting the "rate of growth" – which again, is dishonest and disrespectful to those unsuspecting customers.
Further, Shared Hosting cannot meet the needs of every Website or customer... If someone actually needs ultra-high resource levels, then that is what Cloud VPS Hosting and Dedicated Servers are for. After all, consider that if Shared Hosting could really meet the needs of those requiring "UNLIMITED" resources – then it would be the only type of Web Hosting offered, as no other type of Hosting Service would ever be needed.
For more information on the practice of overselling and details of some "Unlimited" resources that ViUX Hosting does offer (such as Domains & Traffic)... please read our blog posting: Truth in Hosting... To Oversell or Not to Oversell – to gain additional insight into this topic.

We have been working with ViUX for several years to host our ColdFusion site, PittArts.org. The service has been outstanding; in fact we just transferred our domain name registration over to ViUX, too.
Annabelle Clippinger, PITT ARTS
Excellent support! I've been with ViUX for many years and it continues to get better and better. I tell all my friends and business associates about ViUX.
You should know that some people think I am too demanding. I have always believed there was "right" and "wrong". There is no gray area in programming and data processing. A solution that almost works is one that does not work! I am tremendously impressed with the people of ViUX and their SmarterMail Hosting. Thank you for taking care of CST, now and into the future.
David Blankenship, CST Co., Inc.
We have 200 sites on SmaterMail and we utilize SmarterStats and we love the quality of Smatertools software and the extraordinary customer service of VIUX - a thousand thanks for this!
Fabrice Humbert, email@example.com
I host two sites with ViUX and have been extremely satisfied. They helped me to developed the initial websites, including integration of a storefront, and now I maintain them myself. I have received many compliments on the sites. ViUX gets a thumbs up!
Butch Charlton, H. A. Charlton, Inc.
I am continually impressed by the knowledge and fast turnaround of ViUX. Just one more affirmation of my decision to bring ALL my business over, as well as, to recommend ViUX to other clients.
Dr. Rick Mayer, Rick@BizHelpCenter.com
My business is complicated, we need Speed, Reliability and above all, excellent service. My clients need Maximum Uptime, and all these are the reasons we are with ViUX. We've tried 8 different companies in the past 5 years and have now found a home in ViUX. Contact me directly about ViUX if you have any questions. I'll share my Positive and Very Happy experiences.
Since signing on with ViUX in 2006, we have never looked back. ViUX is my offsite IT staff. They give me great advice and I’ve always gotten all the help I needed. They have helped us to create the custom solutions we need to run our business in the most efficient and cost effective way possible...
Derek Frederickson, Twisted Media, Inc.
I love ViUX! I say to anyone I hear talking about e-Commerce that they should use ViUX. I can always get support. Even at 2 AM, I can chat with Andy or Victor and they are there to help… that’s what makes ViUX so great! There are cheaper hosts, but they are not even in the same ball park as ViUX.
Steve Allen, Bevel Heaven
MY Website suffered a self-inflicted cyber-wound, which was FAR beyond my ability to repair. I contacted ViUX and received intense personal service, helping me fix my site, and saving me untold hours of rebuilding the whole thing. They also showed me how to use the built-in back-up feature, so that I can recover the site myself if I ever do anything like this again. If you're a cyber-illiterate like me, ViUX is the host for you!
