About Banana Hosting

Banana Hosting started out in 2002 as a search for a catchy and available domain name. It wasn't easy! Finally i settled for BananaHosting.com, which i think is catchy, fresh and above all easy to remember!

Providing intelligent route control utilizing UUNET, ATT, Sprint, Verio, Cable and Wireless, Global Crossing, GTE/BBN, Qwestk, Digex, and Level3. Experience increased network speeds and a more robust network with less connections and lower pings. The problem & The solution. (links are offsite)


Network Redundancy
Banana Hosting uses intelligent end-user routing software called Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) between there OC-3's. BGP identifies which path is the most efficient for each data packet and then routes the packet to its destination on the fastest path. This increases the speed at which web pages sent from our NOC arrive at their destination.

Network Reliability
Banana Hosting recognizes that downtime is not an option for your servers. That's why we have chosen the hardware and facilities that ensure that your sites are up and running on the web 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Banana Hosting's Network Operations Center (NOC) features raised flooring. This enables a constant flow of conditioned air and helps to maintain uniform room temperature at all times. In addition, raised flooring reduces static and ensures a professional, computer-grade environment for your servers.

Finally, the NOC is located in a secure, monitored, class A building with a minimum number of approved personnel allowed access to highly sensitive areas and equipment. A detailed record of employee and visitor entry is maintained at all times. Physical Location of the servers and network is:

100 W. Lake Lucerne #203
Orlando FL, 32801

Uninterruptible Power System
To guard against local power failures, Banana Hosting has two industrial-grade, three-phase Liebert UPS systems. These act as back-up batteries, maintaining uninterrupted power in case of surges or power outages. With these back-up systems in place, we can keep our network up and running indefinitely without relying on external power.

Industrial-Grade Air Conditioners
Banana Hosting's NOC has two Liebert 10 ton industrial air conditioners that condition our computer rooms and operations center. Air temperature is maintained at an optimal 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

Custom Web Servers
Banana Hosting's web servers are custom-built industrial machines designed for a 24/7 web serving environment. All Banana Hosting servers are equipped with dual-redundant, 400-watt power supplies, hot swap Seagate Baracuda/Cheetah drives and force-filtered cooling systems. In addition, our NOC is equipped with an inventory of identically configured, burned-in standby servers.

Force Filtered Cooling
All of Banana Hosting's custom web servers are equipped with a positive-pressure filtered-air system. Four large fans pull filtered air into each server's protective case, and the components within are cooled by fans that circulate this purified air. This constant introduction of clean air into the case creates a positive pressure environment ensuring that dust and particles remain outside the server.

Redundant Hot Swap Power Supplies
Each server employs dual-redundant hot swap power supplies. If a power supply were to fail, the server would continue running with power from the alternate supply. Meanwhile, alarms would alert a technician, who would quickly restore redundancy. In the meantime, servers and client sites would experience no downtime.

I liked banana hosting initially until several weeks ago I became unable to update my website using site studio due to security issues and today I discovered that my website has disappeared from the internet altogehter.

not happy Jan.

tech support was good, but of no use when the website vanishes into a black hole in cyber space.
