Why host with us?
Hosting with 1stcom will be a friendly and helpful experience.1stcom's servers are located in a building having multiple redundant OC-48's. The facility itself a secure, air-conditioned, static electricity controlled environment. All servers are housed in secure racks behind 2 locked doors and full security system. They are protected by surge suppression and power management systems to ensure uninterrupted server operations. Our server network is connected to 4 separate Internet backbones. Failure of any single backbone, while possibly causing regional outages for customers or visitors to 1stcom's hosted servers, will not directly affect 1stcom's facilities and therefore will not prevent servicing the large majority of our customers. Our network is built of entirely Cisco equipment which have been purposefully purchased and configured for scalability. Every server is connected via a 100mpbs switched LAN. Wiring is professionally installed and includes extra capacity for expansion. In its current state our network could handle several times more traffic than it currently does and we always plan for complete redundancy. All network components, are supplied via multiple battery backup power systems, hence in the unlikely event that one should fail, only a small part of the system is affected. All equipment is regularly tested. All systems are housed in secure, seismically braced racks cooled by a professional environmental control system. A professional team monitors the network 24/7/365 to guarantee smooth running. Our connectivity comes from four of the largest tier-1 backbones in existence (including GTE, Sprint, and Cable & Wireless). This is extremely important in making, and keeping, your server as responsive as possible for your customers. This great access to quality backbones can mean fewer "hops" to the browsing machines, and fewer hops means more responsive server performance.
