FutureQuest’s Secure_Mode Distributed Successfully On All Servers!

Orlando Florida, September 2003 – FutureQuest, Inc. (http://www.FutureQuest.net) an established web hosting provider since 1998, confirmed today the success of the Secure_Mode subsystem, an exclusive and secure alternative to safe_mode, after being in full production within each of the feature-rich full packages residing on FutureQuest’s robust community servers!

Server administrators, especially those operating within a shared environment for hosting communities, have been plagued with the arduous task of deciding what to do with PHP’s safe_mode functionality. Traditionally, there are only four options for these administrators to choose from; a) turn off safe_mode completely which leads to serious security implications, b) run every account with their own unique Apache/PHP daemon which is usually unrealistic when considering server loads and stability, c) require every site owner to run their PHP scripts as a CGI process which again leads to server load and stability issues, or d) enable PHP’s safe_mode which, though secure, restricts the site owner’s choices as to which scripts will and will not operate on the server. FutureQuest however, has created an alternative that shatters the barriers of safe_mode, maintains the highest level of security that safe_mode provided, and does not force an increased server load. They call it Secure_Mode; and it is only available at FutureQuest!

When asked about the incentive for FutureQuest to allocate the expense and programming hours to bring forth Secure_Mode, Andrew Gillespie, Chief Technical Officer of FutureQuest, Inc., explained, “The FutureQuest technicians, as well as our clients, were tired of being restricted by something everyone else seemed to have simply accepted as a way of life. Once we had a plan of action we ran with it and didn’t stop until we succeeded.” Gillespie continued, “FutureQuest is known for taking the extra steps required to create an exceptional overall working environment for our clients. This is just another feature that shows off our ability and willingness to do so.”

FutureQuest is the first and only host that currently provides the security of safe_mode without the restrictions or server overhead inflicted by other options. When reviewing their public community message forums it becomes obvious that the FutureQuest Site Owners are as excited about the new freedom and functionality, made available via FutureQuest’s exclusive Secure_Mode subsystem, as their server administrators are proud!

Who said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Certainly not FutureQuest and it appears they even frosted it!
