To insure the most reliable, efficient, cost effective, and, of course, quickest service for both your Web site and our own, we have partnered with one of the world's leading forces in virtual internet server technology.
This partnership gives us access to some of the fastest, most reliable servers in the world and allows MGM to pass this service on to businesses like you at a very cost-effective rate.
An affordable monthly fee gets you space on the server (www.yourcompany.com), custom e-mail accounts (email@example.com), and, of course, monthly updates to keep your Web Site fresh and current. There are very few hosting services that will make that offer regardless of the quality of their other hosting services.
And, when comparing this fee to hosting your site internally, you will be saving thousands of dollars each month in connectivity fees alone, not to mention man hours, hardware, and all the other smaller features that are available, like SSL, database integration, shopping cart capabilities, and Real Audio and Video.
MGM Reliability and Infrastructure
If it weren't important, you wouldn't have put it on your Web site. And it doesn't matter how important your Web site is, if nobody can connect to it, it's useless. That's why choosing MGM hosting is such a smart choice. We make sure your Web site is up and running, all day, every day. But it's not just reliable, it's blazing fast. We deliver the fastest, most reliable virtual servers available anywhere. How do we do it? Check out some of our strategies.
The primary force behind MGM hosting is our dedication to cutting edge technology. We're committed to continually improving our services by developing and acquiring tools and technologies that help our customers access, maintain, and interact with their hosting service with power and ease.
Our physical servers are Intel Pentium II 333MHz computers with up to 256 MB of SDRAM and 9GB Ultra Wide SCSI hard drives. They are connected with a 10/100 ethernet connection and mounted in lock-down dual-fan racks in a downtown Seattle location.
Our systems are running an internally modified version of BSDI UNIX 3.1. We have modified the operating system and many core components to support a fully virtual environment.
MGM's server software is based on an internally modified version of the Apache Web Server 1.3.1. This system includes SSL 1.1.5 and PHP 3.0.3. We also run fully virtualized versions of SMTP, IMAP, POP3, and FTP Services.
Redundant Internet Connections
MGM's systems are connected to the Internet via fully redundant, multiple T3 connections. We're hooked up to a T3 through UUNET and another T3 through Sprint. Some of our competitors claim that they're connected to the Internet through multiple T3s as well, but look closely. Chances are, their so-called multiple T3s are sold to them by the same provider, so if one of their routers goes down, their entire connection goes down. But not at MGM! If one of our T3s goes down, the other one can reroute the traffic in seconds while we work on getting the connection back up, all without the slightest interruption in performance.
We route traffic from our server systems to our redundant T3 connections through, you guessed it, redundant routers. We use two Cisco Series 7513 routers (people who know routers are drooling right about now), with a host of other Cisco routers, hubs, and switches taking traffic from your servers to the Internet. In plain English, that means your data is in good hands. Because if a router goes down or if a hub goes down your site will stay online.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is this: When you host a site with MGM, we're going to do everything in our power to make sure it stays online. And that's more than a promise - it's a commitment backed up by our philosophy, our plans, and, most importantly, our actions. We simply refuse to slow down.
