At 34SP.com we believe in total honesty with our users. Unlike other companies we think you have the right to know how and where your site is served and where your money is spent. Every hosting account from our business web hosting plans to reseller web hosting to virtual servers are supported by the absolute best data centre operations available. We believe in working with other companies that we feel can help us reach our goals of reliability, affordability and excellence.
We operate a modern, high specification world class data centre, in Manchester, UK.
Our data centre is staffed to support on site engineering, installation, operations and maintenance activities. Fully managed 24/7/365 by skilled engineers and monitored around the clock by Network Operations Centre staff and security personnel.
The centre is specially designed, equipped and secured to the highest standards, with redundancy at all levels. Our facility is as follows.
34SP.com utilises a multi-homed BGP routed network.
34SP.com is also a Local Internet Registry (LIR) as a member of the RIPE NCC. As an LIR 34SP.com is independently responsible for the administration and allocation of the address space that underpins our network. 34SP.com presently provisions transit from four independent providers: Level(3), Abovenet networks, Cogent Communications and Tinet.
34SP.com is currently peering at LONAP and operates an open peering policy.
To maintain our high levels of performance and uptime, 34SP.com relies primarily upon Dell hardware. Most machines are dual or quad-core Intel Xeon systems, with memory ranging from 8-192GB, dependent on application. All servers are pro-actively monitored 24/7/365 to ensure that the services we provide are running smoothly.
The majority of our hosting packages are designed around CentOS Linux. CentOS is a distribution of Linux that provides industry-standard reliability and software support. This includes at least 7 years of security patches per major release. CentOS provides us with the stability, innovation and flexibility that a modern-day server operating system should provide.
Of course after nearly 15 years in the business, we've become rather well adept with a host of other UNIX and Linux operating systems, so if you're having a dedicated server then don't be afraid to ask our sales team about other options.
