Network & Server

To insure that your web site is hosted reliably, we spent hundreds of hours researching hundreds of web hosting providers. We selected an established, full-service hosting provider that is both reliable and reasonably priced. We lease a dedicated server, utilizing their facilities and 24-hour monitoring and technical support, so we can offer you local web site hosting services without the reliability concerns associated with hosting your website with a small, local organization.'s servers are located in the Peak 10 data center in Jacksonville, FL, which has one of the largest and most fault tolerant networks in the region.

The data center is engineered with multiple levels of security including access cards and biometric (fingerprint) scanners, uninterruptible power systems, redundant HVAC systems, fire suppression, and around-the-clock monitoring and management. There is a firewall around the data center, each server has a local firewall, and each server also has software to detect and prevent port scanning.
