We offer fast, reliable connectivity to the internet via multiple OC-12, OC-3 & DS3 connections to over 75 diverse providers.
Our US based Servers are linked to the Internet via fiber-optic connections, that span more than seven diverse backbones and well-known providers including Verio, UUnet, Savvis, Cogent, Sonet and Time Warner making sure your data can be reached, viewed, updated, and accessed with incredible connectivity and network strength.
We upgrade (i.e. replace) our servers roughly every 12,000 hours - sometimes sooner if we get a "deal" from the Data Centre. This lessens the chance of hardware failure and ensures that the server your site is running on gets faster/better over time :-)
Monitoring & Security
All data centers are monitored 24/7 by highly qualified network administrators. The HTTP port is monitored while Ping tests are conducted every 5 minutes to verify that the servers are active.
Our Data Centres incorporate the latest technologies in IDS (Intrusion Detection System) to monitor and protect our networks against malicious attacks.
In addition, our shared hosting servers are protected behind internal firewalls and monitoring software.
Data center security is taken very seriously. All major entry points to the buildings and computer areas require an electronic ID card and security code. The buildings are monitored by cameras and supervised 24 hours per day.
