E-mail & Web Hosting
Have you ever had the unfortunate experience to be stuck between two vendors? The common scenario is each points their finger at the other saying "It's their fault!". We've heard this story many times from new client's who were caught between their ex Web designer and their ex Web hosting company. At BANG! this will never happen, we promise! Here's why...
The Web site we build for you will be hosted by us, on our servers. No one is in a better position to display your new site to the world than the designers and developers who spent countless hours building and polishing it to a high gloss in preparation for your site visitors? Same for your e-mail. Who do you think is going to be the most reliable at getting your contact forms or order notifications? The mail server run by the big telephone company that sits... well I'm not really sure where their servers are... or our mail servers that are in the rack just above the Web servers?
About now you should be asking....
- Can you reliably host my site and e-mail?
- What's your network uptime?
- Does the data center have two connections to the Internet...not just one?
- Is the data center secure?
Our answers? Yes, 99.99%, No (there are four in use for the blended network we use), and Yes, it is very secure right down to man traps for physical access and retina scans for biometric access to the data center floor.
We have been hosting Web sites and e-mail since 1996. The data center we are in is the largest commercially-available data center in the United States. At 538,000 square feet in overall size, the raised rack floor has 9 football fields of rackspace. Designed and built to be highly reliable and efficient. The facility incorporates a number of diverse and green data center systems to provide "always on" operations while reducing the overall carbon footprint. The data center is SAS 70 Type II certified.
The data center employs a multi-layered approach to access control. Starting at the perimeter with bollards to control the flow of vehicle traffic onto the premises. A guard controlled gated entry restricts unauthorized visits and on-site security staff monitor the data center and campus 24*7*forever. Closed circuit TV surveillance is installed at multiple locations in and around the data center and all activity is recorded digitally. All visitors must provide government issued identification prior to entering the data center floor. Upon entry, their access is limited to only the areas they have been authorized for. Biometric screening, bank-vault style mantraps and locking cabinets, cages and suites all provide additional layers of access control.
At BANG! your Web site and e-mail is our first and only priority. We don't run dial-up, DSL or any other type of Internet access service on our equipment. Our bandwidth is dedicated solely to your Web site and e-mail traffic.
Our network and servers are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Backups are performed nightly on all of the Web, e-mail, and database servers and moved off-site for disaster recovery. You can sleep well at night knowing your Web site will be up today and tomorrow!

If you are getting a comfortable feeling about our hosting capabilities…
your very perceptive. We've been hosting websites since 1996. Those years of experience have allowed us to develop a secure and scalable environment for hosting our clients sites. We keep on top of security issues, viruses, and high availability hosting solutions.
