Our Hosting Infrastructure:
Namecheap Web Hosting Infrastruture Diagram. Click to enlargeWe’ve worked hard over the years to establish our brand as that of a leading domain registrar, but more so a registrar you can trust and rely on. We pride ourselves on our level of customer service and we have applied this way of thinking to our hosting infrastructure.
We have selected only the best components for use in our hosting infrastructure. Supermicro servers with Quad Core Xeon processors, a minimum of 4GB of RAM per server and RAID10 SATA2 hard drives guarantee extreme performance. Our attention to detail doesn’t stop here; our multi-tiered and fully redundant network our state-of-the-art data center in Clifton, New Jersey features multiple gigabit Ethernet connections to nLayer, Telia, Savvis and Cogent, delivered over a redundant SONET ring. The result? High performance hosting that offers supremely fast speeds no matter where in the globe you are based.
Redundancy is important too; our N+1 electrical system features a dual bank UPS, backed up by Caterpillar diesel generators which are tested weekly. Our HVAC system is also N+1, using Liebert directional HVAC units with under floor cooling. Our raised floor with high ceilings result in the optimal server running environment. We are able to run our hosting infrastructure indefinitely in the event of an extended power outage.
We use the cPanel control panel as the basis of our hosting systems. Renowned for it’s ease of use and intuity, cPanel gives complete account management through your web browser. For a demo, click here
Cpanel is a LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) based system.
Beneath cPanel, we run hardened CentOS Linux servers. Finely tuned by our system administration team, CentOS offers the best balance of performance and enterprise features and is backed by the hugely powerful open source development community.
Our team has years of expertise in running Linux based web servers and our ability to run these well is second-to-none.
