What do we mean when we say OneHost Cloud Values Privacy & Security ?
When customers ask is my data safe and private most cloud hosting providers will almost always say an unequivocal yes without giving it a second thought however the reality is a little different. All one needs to do is peruse some of the biggest Web and Cloud Hosting providers such as Digital Ocean, BlueHost and GoDaddy and it becomes apparent that the situation is somewhat different. Yes, they will keep your data private but in terms of privacy that is a in a grey area. While almost all will never allow your data to be leaked and/or in the hand of hackers, what if they are asked by a government department or law enforcement ? Your can bet they will always provide this information without a second thought. In recent times there was DreamHost that received a subpoena from the United States government to hand over information pertaining to any al all users that access a particular website that DreamHost had on their servers. Applause goes to DreamHost for not bending to the bullying tactics by the US government the challenged to order and end up getting the order heavily changed to only provide little information.
While DreamHost is one of the few hosting providers that would challenge such orders many if not all would rather give up their customers privacy rights and give any and all information rather than spend month challenging these constitutionally illegal orders.
