About Hurricane ElectricFounded in 1994, when the Internet and the World Wide Web was just starting to take off, Hurricane Electric became one of the first Business Technical Service Providers (TSP). Today, Hurricane Electric is the premier Business TSP, specializing in technical web hosting, including dedicated servers and colocation. Hurricane Electric also provides direct Internet connections ranging from fractional to full T1's and T3's, all the way up to WDM and 10 GigE.
Hurricane Electric was started when founder and President Mike Leber saw a need for technical web hosting. With the limited number of web hosting companies at the time, Mike took the opportunity to do it better. Hurricane Electric has since become a pioneer in the web hosting industry.
Hurricane Electric IP Transit Network
Hurricane Electric's International Internet backbone is ranked among the top in the world. Connections ranging from OC192, OC48, and 10GigE (10,000Mbps) form rings connecting Hurricane core routers.
Our self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to our own backbone, we also purchase backup transit from multiple providers in multiple locations to ensure that your data will arrive via the shortest possible routes. Because of our backup transit and the many international peers, our network maintains the shortest routes for sending your data all over the world. On an ongoing basis, we are negotiating with the top fiber carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers, and we are signing on new peering relationships.
Hurricane Electric's network utilizes Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over dark fiber and long haul wavelengths. We always update the router's software after we have stress tested the latest software on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that your equipment will ultimately be connected to is connected back to a core router via fiber.
Please note that we are expanding and upgrading our network on a regular basis, so the network maps provided are snapshots of the network configuration at a specific point in time.
Hurricane Electric offers colocation with immediate availability. We offer plans that range from rack space for a single 1U server to the ability to get gigabit (1000 megabits/second) Ethernet connectivity and enough space in our Silicon Valley facilities to house several thousand or more servers.
This is an ideal step up from standard web hosting if you don't want other users on your server for safety and performance reasons. With a dedicated server, you know exactly what is on your server and the level of traffic that your server is experiencing.
Hurricane Electric's virtual web hosting offers unparalleled service and guarantees that your website will perform optimally. From our Basic Virtual Host account to our VIP Virtual Host account, Hurricane Electric ensures there is a solution that fits your needs. Employing the latest hardware, a self-healing national backbone, and a knowledgeable technical support staff 24/7, Hurricane Electric provides all of our clients' peace of mind.
Hurricane Electric provides high speed IPv6 and IPv4 Transit via direct connections to Hurricane's International Internet backbone.
