Features and Ease of Use

- Automatic daily backups and scheduled weekly backups
- Domain registration available
- From one to unlimited domains
- SSL certificates available at additional cost
- From 500 GB disk space to unlimited
The website is a bit vague about their infrastructure. Whilst their homepage states that they have servers located in America, Israel, and Amsterdam, most of the other pages fail to mention America. Also, whilst they state the servers are located at the “most advanced server farm in the world,” there is no information to back this up.
Secure Host offers a suite of features that are beneficial to new website owners and advanced coders alike, who will both benefit from the website traffic statistics that come as standard for all website hosting plans. Beginners will also like the one-click installer for popular programs so that you can get started in just a few minutes with no coding experience. Experts will like the support for all versions of PHP and Ruby, plus SSH and FTP access. Beginners and experts will like the website traffic statistics which come as standard for all website hosting plans.
Pricing and Support
If you’re looking for unlimited website hosting with servers located in Israel or Amsterdam data centers, Secure Host could be a great option for you. Their prices are in line with other Israeli website hosting providers but are quite high when compared with international competitors. Note that both SSL certificates and domain registration cost extra.
Secure Host offers a good selection of contract lengths including month-to-month, quarterly, biannual and annual, and you can get a deep discount for purchasing an annual term. There is no free trial, no free plan, and no money-back guarantee, so you should probably sign up for the monthly commitment until you’re sure.
Sales support is by telephone and email between the hours of 9 am and 9 pm. Technical support for existing customers is by ticket only. There is no public knowledge base, and no live chat.
