Our Web Hosting Technology
Ultra modern technology places you way ahead of the competition
Datacenter Location: Cape Town

100% Dell Servers

We only use Dell servers in our web hosting platform. Utilising state-of-the-art technology, we were able to built a web hosting platform which is not only very reliable, but also delivers web pages extremely fast.

Our platform is designed in such a way that if any server fails, another server automatically and without delay takes over that server's workload. For example, if one of our mail servers were to break down, another server would automatically come online, with all the correct configuration and take over the work of the failed server. During this period, no email will be lost.

Also, all data is stored in two large network disk arrays, which means that all data is automatically synchronised between the arrays so that in the event of an array failing, the remaining array continues to serve data to the servers with no downtime of your site or services.

Strong Data Backup

Our network arrays operate RAID, a way of configuring a system so that any disk can fail without an impact to your data. As outlined above, we also operate our network arrays in mirrored pairs so that a whole array can fail with no impact whatsoever. Each of these arrays is also backed up every night to a separate backup cluster which is then written to tape and stored offsite.

The following diagram represents our typical web hosting infrastructure.

Server Specification

Dual Quad Core Intel® Xeon® 3.16GHz with 2X6MB Cache
Dual 136 GB SCSI Drive (for the operating system)
RAID Mirroring (if one drive fails, another takes over, resulting in no downtime of your site)
2 x 10 Gbps Uplink
100 Mbps NIC Card Connected 10 1Gbps Switch
Dual Power Supplies
Dual Gigabit Network Adapters

100% Cisco Gigabit Network

Our network operates on industry leading network equipment supplied by Cisco Systems. All our switches and routers are developed by Cisco. Our network is based on gigabit technology which means that it runs at a speed of 1000 Mb per second - most web hosting networks are limited to 100 Mb per second.

Our network also utilises 100% CAT6 network cable. CAT6 cable contains four pairs of copper wire and unlike CAT5, utilises all four pairs. CAT6 supports Gigabit (1000 Mbps) Ethernet and supports communications at more than twice the speed of CAT5e, the other popular standard for Gigabit Ethernet cabling.

Redhat Enterprise Linux Platform

Redhat is the leading provider of the Linux open source operating software. For a number of years now Redhat Linux has been the number one choice for most web hosting firms, not just because of its amazing scalability, but also because of its outstanding track record as the most stable operating system available on the market today.

Our system utilises the latest Redhat server technology to allow servers to be continually up to date with Redhat system & security patches.

Unlike many of our competitors, we run Redhat Enterprise Linux, the most stable release of Redhat Linux available and the only version that keeps completely up to date with security patches.


We operate a multi-homed network utilising BGP4 technology, simply put we have multiple connections to the Internet with different backbone providers. Should any one connection fail, our other connections automatically take all the traffic. Not only does this mean that we are very unlikely to lose connectivity to the Internet but it also means that traffic moving to and from our network can choose from a range of paths to get to it's final destination. This means that we have been able to configure the network to always take the quickest route.
