USA Based Datacentre

Premium CPanel™ Based Hosting Plans

All of our Premium CPanel™ Based Hosting Plans, are hosted in a World-Class Datacentre in the USA. They are all hosted on premium grade hosting servers with RAID harddrives, and multiple levels of backups. This is a leading World-Class Datacentre, looked after by expert USA based cPanel™ server technicians, who have direct phisical access to the servers in the datacentre. This means that they do everything themselves – installs, monitoring, modifications, reboots. They have full control over the operations and only a fraction of web hosts can offer this peace of mind.

The USA based datacentre is named the ‘One Wilshire Datacentre’, which is located in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles datacentre facility, has multiple gigabit connections to upstream providers, to ensure solid network stability and capacity.

IP transit is from from 2 cisco 12008 GSR’s which are connected via multiple gigabit fiber uplinks to the distribution switches (2 cisco 2948G-L3’s). Each cabinet is prewired and connected to the main distribution cabinet so it’s plug and play. Each cabinet has it’s own switch, we prefer a layer 2 switch in each cabinet. All of the servers are hooked up to APC remote reboot ports in the event that they lockup for any reason.

The network has transit from Level 3 and ATT(Mzima), Savvis, and Global Crossing. That means that there are 4 Tier 1 bandwidth providers. This is a premium, exclusive network that gives all of our hosting clients on the USA network, a major advantage over other USA hosted servers, regardless of geographic regions. Very few hosting providers are able to provide this level of network connectivity and bandwidth providers.
