Our servers are housed inside a state-of-the-art datacenter facility in Amsterdam, Netherlands and are powered by renewable energy. The data centre is equipped with raised floors, climate control, 24/7 security, fire suppression systems, water detection systems, UPS & generators to ensure that our customers data is safe and secure. Servers have the latest generation processors from Intel and use Juniper and Cisco for network switching/routing so that your VPS (Virtual Private Server) runs optimally.
Our network is routed by the top of the line Juniper edge routers and aggregated through Cisco and Juniper switches. As a high quality web hosting partner, we have access to most major bandwidth providers, which have been selected based on routes to compliment our other providers. Our network gear is completely redundant all the way down to the uplinks that link up our cabinets, and to the providers that we have selected, along with the entry-points in to our facility.
Our commitment to excellence starts with the hardware that we use for our customers. Our servers are based on Supermicro rackmountable servers and are powered by the most power-efficient processors by Intel.

Minimum Server Specifications
Technology is rapidly changing and we adapt to the changes as they happen. You can be sure to be provisioned on to servers with at least these specifications:
- Latest Generation Energy efficient Intel Xeon processors
- Minimum 64 GB DDR3 ECC-Registered Memory
- Gigabit Connectivity
- BGP4 Gigabit connectivity to multiple Fiber GigE Tier 1 Backbones
- RAID-10 SSD Storage Arrays for maximum performance & redundancy
- Solid State Drive (SSD) Acceleration
Website files & databases are stored on cutting-edge solid state drives configured in a redundant RAID-10 storage array.
Ultra-optimized web & database servers allow for blazing fast data read/write, serving pages up to 50 times faster.
Customised in-house caching technology allows us to serve your favorite applications efficiently and reliably.
Hosting Account Isolation
Utilising a container based approach, accounts are provisioned with their own dedicated computing resources and secured virtual file system (Secure vFS). This ensures no single user can impact another regardless of site traffic or computing resource demands.
Linux Secure vFS
At the kernel level and in combination with our account isolation technology, provides users with their own Secured virtualised File System. This ensures accounts on our platform are unable to see or access other accounts, helping to protect against malware and other malicious activity.
Real-Time Security Scanning
Utilising kernel level file tracking, our systems can identify changed files and scan them for known malware signatures in real-time. Thanks to our Secure vFS framework, these changes can be immediately isolated to protect against malware from spreading.
Advanced Clustered Threat Analysis
A combination of proprietary and third party software allows our system administrators to have the ability to identify potential harmful attacks across our network to help develop security rules before a problem occurs.
Pro-active Server Monitoring
With Real-time monitoring of all critical services, our system administrators can identify potential problems before they occur, helping us to maintain 99.9% uptime.
