Unfortunately, unsecured web servers are intriguing and accessible to determined hackers. So when it comes to managing the large amounts of traffic your site receives, you must make security a top priority. LuxSci's dedicated web site hosting ensures the protection of your online presence with maximized security and capacity. A dedicated server provides space and resources just for you, as opposed to the watering hole of a traditional shared server.
In addition to increased privacy, dedicated web site hosting also offers increased security. For instance, if another users' server is attacked or hacked, you're much less likely to experience collateral damage. Increased reliability arises from the fact that you don't have to share memory, CPU, network, disk space, or other resources. And, dedicated servers are best for accounts that need hundreds or thousands of users or gigabytes of storage. Does this sound like the type of infrastructure that's right for your business?
Does the nature of your business call for HIPAA compliance? LuxSci's dedicated Web hosting servers provide a HIPAA compliant web infrastructure where you can host HIPAA websites. The isolated nature of the dedicated server provides enhanced security and flexibility from hackers. You can use SSL to ensure a secure connection between your website and its visitors. We also offer auditing reports for your web sites and your access to our system. With highly secure firewalls and our Intrusion Protection System, you can rest assured that if there is an issue on your server, we will be alerted.
LuxSci's dedicated HIPAA compliant Web hosting services provide you with your own protected island on the web. You have the ability to host and share information on a secure and isolated platform. Be sure to check out our dedicated server package and to look into our helpful HIPAA compliant information to make sure you're always protected.

Enterprise-class servers have their data stored on a private SAN where all disk partitions are always encrypted. Business-class servers can not have their main operating system disk encrypted; however, if you purchase additional disks and request it, these additional disks can be encrypted and all of your data can be stored on them. See: Enterprise vs Business Class.

What I really appreciate about LuxSci is that the services are comprehensive, yet modular and easily configurable in small increments. This is particularly important on the non-profit site I have hosted there. And, if I need more, I can add it quickly and efficiently - I don't need to jump to a $99/month package just to add database support."
I email to commend LuxSci's excellent email and web services, which in my opinion, are similar to a well-built German motor vehicle. Very reliable technology with constant innovations (but no gimmicks) and slick WebMail. Moreover, never before have I experienced such swift customer service. Most emails are replied to within minutes at all times of day. Keep up the good work!"
I had a few startup problems but they were solved within a few hours, which is great compared to the support I usually see from other companies. Now everything works as I expect and I am very satisfied with your products and support."
I have been very happy with the products & services. They have exceeded my expectations thus far because whenever I need something, I can either easily find the answer myself, or if not the telephone tech support is extremely helpful. Thanks!"
For me, the LuxSci order placement and account design tools offer a rapid process of dynamically adding users, domains or disk space. For my clients, your WebMail service is the first one to meet their needs while also sporting a user-friendly interface. I look forward to working with you again!"
