Our Hardware

We do not lease or rent our servers from other providers; we own every piece of hardware in our cabinets. This has allowed us to custom build an environment to provide the best possible service to our clients. As an example, we were one of the first shared hosting providers to deploy solid state disks on all of our servers. SSDs provide a tremendous boost in performance for MySQL and other demanding services. At minimum, each of our hosting servers has:

  • Dual Intel Xeon Deca (10) Core Processors - 20 physical cores total
  • Redundant, hot swap power supplies with separate A and B power
  • 64GB ECC Registered RAM
  • Hardware Raid Controller w/ Cache & BBU
  • Pure SSD Storage - 8x SSD RAID

Network Performance

We often receive requests for test download URLs and IP addresses to ping for potential clients to evaluate our network. You can find this information below.

It's been over 5 yrs since joining Dathorn ... I couldn't be happier. The service from both the servers and the people here have been nothing short of spectacular.
