Speed is part of
everything we do. Every server, every system, every piece of
hardware is chosen & implemented with speed in mind. We continually
invest in the latest proven technology to ensure that your site is
as fast as it can be!
Particular attention is paid to server load. We strictly
limit the amount of sites on each server to ensure fast response
times and top performance for your site!
Underutilized Bandwidth. We do not try to get by or keep our costs
low by pushing our bandwidth to the limit. Even during peak usage
more than 70% of our bandwidth is available and unused. That
means speed, speed & more speed for your site!
Our facilities are manned with 24/7 security personnel. Badge/photo
ID access screening as well as biometric access screening are
employed for an added level of security. We have installed a dual
door floor trap design for access to the raised floor area, and we
require escorts to gain access to raised floor areas. Sensitive
security areas within the center are protected by motion sensors and
security breach alarms, and video cameras installed throughout the
center are continuously monitored by security personnel.
All of our systems are designed to maintain a quality of service
throughout the network by prioritizing packets to maintain an order
of precedence of services. Each network device is equipped to filter
out DOS attacks. We also offer intelligent, multilayer access
control that can be utilized to protect the network from the impact
of attacks while reducing the risk of inadvertently discarding
Our primary bandwidth provider is Qwest Communications.
Qwest has built the first nationwide fiber-optic network designed
for Internet Protocol (IP) applications and services.

the highest speed IP over SONET network available today, connecting
major U.S. markets including
