Web hosting upgrade

For over 15 years, we have been providing web-site hosting with unlimited bandwidth, storage and e-mail accounts.  Our site hosting was recently upgraded, moving all hosted sites to a new server on a faster core network that provides higher I/O speed for web pages.

We are proud to have chosen SoftLayer as our data center partner. Our customers sites are hosted at a data center in Dallas. The SoftLayer network provides all customers with over 1,000 Gbps of connectivity between 3 data centers and 7 points of presence (PoPs) across the United States. We have enabled dozens of 10Gbps network connections across our locations that are provided by 10 leading US network providers, and include multiple public peering links to dozens of additional Internet access networks.
