Frequently asked questions

Your website is the heart of your digital life, so its protection should be taken seriously. If not, it risks falling victim to all sorts of cyber attacks, including malware, data breaches, and domain takeovers. This could harm your business or brand’s reputation and result in financial losses. Fortunately, when you register and host your domain with Spaceship, the platform features myriad security measures as standard so you can focus on growing your online venture.
When someone registers a domain, their name, address, and contact information are added to the WHOIS public directory of domain owners. Unsurprisingly, not everyone is comfortable with having their sensitive details displayed for everyone, including potential threat actors, to see.

That’s why Spaceship offers free domain privacy for anyone who registers a domain. You don’t need to do anything extra — it will automatically be added when you register yours. So, anyone looking up your domain details will only see randomly generated data, not your personal information.
Very. In addition to free SSL certificates, continuous virus and malware monitoring, and a robust firewall system, Spaceship Shared Hosting also features:

  • Cloud storage: reinforces your data with an extra layer of protection by distributing it across various servers.
  • CageFS: a virtualized file system that puts each server user in their own 'cage,' preventing them from seeing other server users and viewing sensitive information.
  • Brute force protection: A smart threshold shields your server from brute-force attacks.
Encryption is a cybersecurity measure that converts data into unreadable text. Cryptographic keys encrypt and decrypt the data, and only permitted parties can access them. Encryption is widely used across the Internet to keep users' private information private, including Spaceship. For example, Spacemail's data storage is encrypted, while the free SSL certificates with Shared Hosting plans keep the connection to your site secure.
Yes. SSL certificates have become a standard expectation for all sites across the web, and for good reason. Encrypting user connections to your site ensures malicious third parties can’t read any data they send. This is especially crucial if they’re sharing personal information. Furthermore, your site may not work properly on major browsers if you don't have an SSL. Many issue warnings to users about SSL-free sites being “not secure.”
You can set a password to individual emails you send to ensure only the intended recipient will read it. This can bring extra peace of mind if you are unsure about their level of device and account security. You will need to share this password with the recipient so they can enter it when they receive the email. The recipient doesn’t need to be a Spaceship user either. If they use a different email service, they will receive an email that contains a link to the whole message hosted on the Spacemail server. Here, they will be prompted to enter the password. They can also send an encrypted reply from the same page.
Spaceship offers a secure foundation for your site, but there are many things you can do to elevate your site’s security. These include setting a strong password and changing it often, ensuring your site’s software and plugins are kept up-to-date, and restricting user permissions.
