    Large or small– Gearbox hosts websites.

    A simple, elegant web hosting solution for web professionals who want more control, less stress and a robust infrastructure that serves their customer base.

    Gearbox delivers professional web designers, developers and programmers with reliable, state-of-the-art website hosting, domain registration, domain renewal and associated web services.

    A lot of websites still use outdated services in a shared hosting environment. This means your website is constantly competing with hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of other customers’ websites for the same limited pool of server resources. With Gearbox, your resources are isolated from everyone else on the server. You get the additional ability to throttle beyond your guaranteed resources. This design ensures you never have to worry about other customers impacting the performance of your web applications.

 Shared hosting environments also limit your developer’s ability to customize server software and install new applications. With a Gearbox web hosting account, you have access to the root level so you can customize existing applications and install new ones at anytime.

    Gearbox Hardware & Technology

    The Gearbox data center is a group of networked servers for the remote storage, processing, and distribution of data throughout the world wide web. Our data center hardware, technology and network expertise provide some of the highest level data center design and engineering features available. Our data center is monitored 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. We surpass up-time, security, cooling and power redundancy standards of most web hosting facilities.

    Turbo anyone? Run your web applications fast and faster. Our simple and efficient server strategy will out-perform the competition dramatically– especially during traffic spikes and high-load conditions. Gearbox throttling technology allows your applications to respond to users much faster on Gearbox servers than cheap discount website hosts.

    Our web servers are powered by Hewlett-Packard Proliant DL-Series machines featuring multi-core Intel Xeon processors and high-performance SCSI/SAS disk drives in a RAID-10 configuration. These puppies are just plain fast!

    Gearbox Security– it’s all about trust.

    We’ve never had a client’s financial or personal data compromised. All of our e-commerce websites are fully encrypted with 128-bit certified SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates. What this means is you get the same high-level encrypted security for your e-commerce store or secure application as a global bank. Even more paranoid? We can jump that to 256-bit encryption if you so desire.

    For Web Professionals

    Talented designers and developers have trusted Gearbox for years to serve up their digital creations. Since our founding in 2008, we’ve catered to web professionals– mostly unseen for years, quietly doing our job and providing world-class service.

By 2010, Gearbox was bursting at the seams and the time was ripe to move forward with our expansion. At the same time, we’ve put in place our plans to add additional services that, were simple, powerful and relevant to our web professional market.
