Our services are provided through "OnNet" with Frontier Global Center (FGC), which means that we have a direct fiber optic connection between our Cisco 7200 router and theirs. Being OnNet with a Tier-1 provider means that we don't link to a backbone, we are actually on a backbone. We have no phone circuit, and do not use a Telecom link to get to the Internet; instead, we have an in-house connection directly to FGC's ATM fiber node, located a few floors below our servers in the same building. This fiber optic line can handle the bandwidth of a T3 or an OC3, and with FGC's Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, it can handle several times the bandwidth of an OC3.

Multiple Backbones:
We share the digital distribution architecture of FGC, which is comprised of more than 25 high-speed private peering connections to major Internet carriers such as MCI, Sprint, UUNET, AT&T, AOL, Best, Erols, and others. FGC also has high-speed links to 8 public exchanges including both MAE East and West and several NAPS. To use an analogy, the private peering connections allow data to travel from New York to LA on a non-stop flight, while the public exchanges require a stop over.

Route Optimization:
We have a large investment in BGP (Border Gate Protocol) technology, which allows the traffic to your site to travel more efficiently by finding the best route for data to travel. On a typical server the traffic always takes the same route from client to server. For them, if there is a bad node, traffic does not get through at all. Because we use BGP protocol, different and more efficient routes are taken between client and server depending on traffic loads and broken nodes. This means our servers automatically look for the fastest route available.

Low Latency/High Throughput:
Often providers operate their networks at three to four times responsible capacity, and as a result the corresponding transfer times reach over 300ms for each hop along the net. Our network daily average is 6.5% of its capacity, with mid-day peak spikes reaching only 15.5% capacity. Our transfer times range from 15 to 80ms routinely.

A Great Future Investment

Domain Names - Paying Too Much

A great future investment is securing your Domain Name now. ( Actually, you may want to consider securing a few names )

There are a lot of variances in Cost and Options currently online. You should be aware that you can easily run into problems and unnecessary costs once you give your credit card number to secure a domain name depending on what online website you use.

What to Watch Out For:

When using their search engine, you are told the name you want is available to register. When the reality is that the name may already be registered to someone else and their search engine is not current. ( We have found many sites like this-Watch Out! ). You don't find this out until AFTER you have already submitted membership or additional handling fees that are non-refundable.

You may be paying additional handling costs/membership fees, in addition to mandatory interNIC fees. The best price to register the extensions (.com .net .org ) is USD$70/2 years, $35 each 1 year after as of April 02, 1999

When you move your domain name to another host site, you get a whole bunch of hassle.
Here are some other "alligators" that may jump out at you.
