About Entity Data’s Premium Network

What does it mean for you to host with an enterprise class network? It means speed, power, reliability, and 100% uptime! Our Enterprise-ISP network routes traffic to its destination using Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). BGP is an advanced network protocol that chooses how to send information through the Internet based on the fewest number of available network hops. Our servers are fully redundant and backed up by two diesel generators. Disaster recovery is built-in to everything we host, and daily on-site or off-site backup solutions are available for a reasonable monthly-fee.
