|Unlike many other web hosting companies, Hostcentral actually owns and operates its own network. In fact,
our network is of such high quality that some of our competitors even use us!|
Utilising internet standards such as BGP, Hostcentral maintains multiple, redundant connections to major backbones and peering facilities within Australia.
By doing this, we ensure that your website remains available, even if one or more of our suppliers is offline for any reason. Currently, Hostcentral has
transit and peering links with the following companies:
Our internal network is structured so that there is no single point-of-failure that could cause availability issues. Features of
this network include:
We've also gone the extra step and deployed secondary DNS and mail servers in different states and on different carrier networks to
ensure reliability for all Hostcentral clients!
- 2Gbit/s backbone, linking our core routers with the switches our web hosting servers, dedicated servers and customer
co-located servers are connected to.
- Redundant routers that monitor each other to ensure constant availability.
- 24x7 monitoring of key infrastructure, both internally and utilising an independent 3rd party
