Information About Our Network

Designed with reliability and speed as our focus, 1 Hour Hosting's telco-class facility features the following:


World Class Facilities
California, Newark, New Jersey, London, U.K. and Texas real soon.
Each center is staffed 24 x 7 with highly trained, experienced support engineers.

Speed - Powered by OC192 backbones.
Intelligent Routing - We utilize BGP to provide intelligent, fail-safe routing. We route your users to the fastest available connection to ensure maximum connection speed and virtually eliminate down time.
Scalability - 1 Hour Hosting  buys transit from 10 Tier 1 backbone providers, including AT&T, Qwest and Level 3 and has over 4GB of provisioned data capacity.
Redundancy - Built-in redundancy through multiple redundant network connections and redundant router and switch configuration.

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!

Physical Security
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.
Network Security
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 legitimate traffic.

Our primary bandwidth provider is Qwest Communications.
Qwest has built the first nationwide fiber-optic network designed for Internet Protocol (IP) applications and services.
Qwest systems offer advanced Internet-based networking and application services. Qwest's nationwide OC-48/192 IP backbone is the highest speed IP over SONET network available today, connecting major U.S. markets including
hubs in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, New York, and Washington, D.C. 

This powerful combination of bandwidth and hardware enables us to support bandwidth-intensive applications such as, electronic commerce & enterprise resource planning and allows us to offer a single-source for end-to-end Internet
solutions with technical staff monitoring customer applications and equipment 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

1 Hour hosting offers the best value for your hosting dollar. All of our virtual hosting plans include a Free Set-Up. We combine lightning fast connectivity with proven high end hardware and deliver it our customers at unbeatable prices! 

You can't believe how many people we talk to every day that are stunned they can actually speak with a live person
about their account, support, or any of our services. Hey, we love technology, but we also know you want to be able to communicate with us person to person. Our experienced, friendly, professional staff is here for you. On the phone, on-line or in person, we're here for you. 

This allows 1 Hour Hosting to offer you the speed, redundancy, and reliability that you should expect from our servers.

Full Backup Power
The operations center is fully equipped with a 48v dc power plant, and all of our equipment is fed with conditioned dc power. In the unlikely event of complete power failure, back-up power supplies will come on-line. In case of extended power failure, a backup generator is also on standby.

RAID Hard Disk Storage Array
This back-up technology allows vital data to be accessed even in the event of total drive failure. All critical data is backed up on an incremental basis to ensure maximum system redundancy.

Full-Time Air Conditioning & Heating
The center is cooled and heated 24-hours a day for an optimal environment for both the computers and staff.

24-hour Monitoring and Video Surveillance
To insure against line failures and intrusion, the center is monitored around the clock by a comprehensive security system supplemented by video surveillance equipment.

100Mbps Cat5 Wiring
The entire center is wired in 100Mbps Category-5 wiring for unbeatable speed and reliability. In addition, our network is fully switched using Cisco Systems networking gear.
