Powerful Servers and Fast Connections

Web surfers are impatient. Slow loading sites will lose traffic and business. We make sure this does not happen to the sites we host.

Backbone Position

The Network Operations Center in Baltimore, Maryland is "OnNet" with Frontier Global Center (FGC), which means that your website is placed on a collection of fast server computers placed directly on the Internet backbone. The fiber optic line can handle the bandwidth of a T3 or an OC3, and with FGC's Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, it can handle several times the bandwidth of an OC3.

Reliable Connection

We share the digital distribution architecture of FGC, which is comprised of more than 25 high-speed private peering connections to major Internet carriers such as MCI, Sprint, UUNET, AT&T, AOL, Best, Erols, and others. FGC also has high-speed links to 8 public exchanges including both MAE East and West and several NAPS. To use an analogy, the private peering connections allow data to travel from New York to LA on a non-stop flight, while the public exchanges require a stop over.

Fast Data Transfer

Often providers operate their networks at three to four times responsible capacity, and as a result the corresponding transfer times reach over 300ms for each hop along the net. Our network daily average is 6.5% of its capacity, with mid-day peak spikes reaching only 15.5% capacity. Our transfer times range from 15 to 80ms routinely.
