Hosting refers to the dedicated servers that store your website files and make them

The data centers we use are engineered to the standards required to support the Zero-Downtime
Network™. They are designed and maintained without compromise for security or redundancy.
Keycard protocols, biometric scanning protocols and round-the-clock interior and
exterior surveillance monitor access to every one of the data centers. Only authorized
data center personnel are granted access credentials to the data centers. No one
else can enter the production area of the datacenter without prior clearance and
an appropriate escort. Every data center employee undergoes multiple and thorough
background security checks before they're hired.
Every data center's HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is N+1 redundant.
This ensures that a duplicate system immediately comes online should there be an
HVAC system failure. Every 90 seconds, all the air in the data centers are circulated
and filtered to remove dust and contaminants. The advanced fire suppression systems
are designed to stop fires from spreading in the unlikely event one should occur.
All cables are securely tied down with cable racks suspended from ceilings, providing
dual routes for all cables.
Should a total utility power outage ever occur, all of the data centers' power systems
are designed to run uninterrupted, with every server receiving conditioned UPS (Uninterruptible
Power Supply) power. The UPS power subsystem is N+1 redundant, with instantaneous
failover if the primary UPS fails. If an extended utility power outage occurs, the
routinely tested, on-site diesel generators can run indefinitely.
Core Routing Equipment
Only fully redundant, enterprise-class routing equipment is used in the data
centers. All routing equipment is housed in a secured core routing room and fed
by its own redundant power supply. Fiber carriers can only enter the data centers
at disparate points to guard against service failure.
We require that the networking and security teams working in the data centers be
certified. We also require that they be thoroughly experienced in managing and monitoring
enterprise level networks. The Certified Network Technicians are trained to the
highest industry standards.
