If you would like GotoNames administrators to assist in writing backup scripts tailored to your site or help in any way, please send an email to GotoNames Support

Multiple tiers of security are integrated into the GotoNames hosting platform unlike a typical hosting environment where security is an additional layer. The stock solutions used for shared hosting do not solve core issues around integrating security between the application and the operating system. At best, most typical hosts will implement a firewall solution, and weaknesses inherent with the operating system remain.
- Scripts are isolated and monitored
- No bad neighbors
