wall light fixture box?

I apologize for what seems like an obvious answer to a silly question. I am completing "new work" wiring of my detached garage. Local code requires an exterior porch light be mounted next to the entry door of the garage. I went to my big box hardware store looking for a wall box. No such thing exists. I only found ceiling, switch and outlet boxes. Am I correct to assume a wall light fixture box is simply a ceiling box mounted vertically?
Thanks for your help..again.

That works. So does a rectangular box.

These work well too. You will probably need to go to an electrical supply house tho.
