Network Information

Uptime

Our network has had 19 months of 100% server uptime now! Those are the BEST stats you'll see anywhere on the internet!

Connectivity

Host JSC utilizes connections to multiple backbones to ensure that data reaches the end-user in the fastest, most efficient manner possible. We also have peering agreements with local ISPs to allow fast delivery of packets when possible.

BGP4 Routing

Host JSC runs the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing. Our entirely switched, Cisco powered network employs Cisco GSR 12000 class routers running HSRP (N+1 hot failover) to ensure that data can be routed even in the event of a router failure. The BGP4 protocol is a standard that allows for the routing of packets of information sent out from the Host JSC Network. Each packet of information is evaluated and sent over the best route possible. Because of our redundant network architecture, packets may be sent via alternative routes even if they are being delivered to the same end user. Should one of our providers fail, packets leaving our network are automatically redirected through another route via a different provider.

Guaranteed packet Delivery

Host JSC pays our providers to make sure that packets of information are delivered to the end user's eyeballs. This offers significant advantages over simply peering with the major backbones. Peering agreements rarely include Service Level Agreements (SLAs) so no one is accountable for lost packets at congested exchange points. Because Host JSC actually has SLAs with all our providers, we are able to guarantee that all packets will leave our network at full speed.


Bandwidth Utilization

The Host JSC Network currently has plenty of excess capacity, even during peak hours. This allows us to accommodate even the largest spikes in traffic that are often associated with the most popular Web sites. We are always adding network connectivity and new routes in an effort to make sure content is delivered to your users as efficiently as possible. A low bandwidth utilization also allows for maximum uptime, even if one of our providers has an outage.

Network Providers

Our Network Providers are comprised of telecommunications companies that we work with to build and maintain our world-class network.
