You will be provided Minimum Intel PIII 833 MHZ Servers with SCSI Hard disc drives with 20 GB Space & 25 GB Bandwidth Usage, Maximum depends on the plan you go for. But The above is minimum hardware we specify.

STP Web Hosting Network

Our network has been engineered from the ground up to accommodate the high-availability demands of the Internet's most popular web sites. We utilize connections to multiple backbones to ensure that data reaches the end-user in the fastest, most efficient manner possible. We also have peering agreements with major backbones to allow fast delivery of packets when possible.

Physical Security

The data center is physically isolated from everyone but level three technicians. Public access is strictly forbidden.


Austin, TX is an ideal location for our primary data center because of the absence of natural disasters. Austin is on the most seismically stable soil in the US. Additionally, the absence of hurricanes and tornadoes make the ASNET Austin data center the perfect location for your mission-critical data.

Conditioned Power

Power systems in are designed to run uninterrupted even in the unlikely event of a total power outage. All servers are fed with conditioned UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) power that will run if utility power fails. The UPS power subsystem is N+1 redundant with instantaneous fail over in case the primary UPS fails. In the event of an extended power outage, an on-site diesel generator can run indefinitely.

Precision Environment

All air is circulated and filtered every two minutes to remove dust and contaminants. The data center's HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system is N+1 redundant to ensure that even in the event of an entire HVAC system failure, there is a duplicate system on standby to take over. An advanced fire-suppression system is in place to prevent any fire from spreading - in the unlikely event that one could start. All cables to servers and routing equipment are securely tied down, and cable racks suspended from the ceiling provide dual routes for all cables. In the event that all cables on a cable rack are cut or burned, packets of data will automatically be routed to a second set of cables on the other side of the data center.


STP web hosting Network utilizes connections to multiple backbones to ensure that data reaches the end-user in the fastest, most efficient manner possible. We also have peering agreements with local ISPs to allow fast delivery of packets when possible.

BGP4 Routing

STP web hosting Network runs the Border Gate Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing. Our entirely switched, Cisco powered network employs Cisco 7000 class routers running HSRP (N+1 hot failover) to ensure that data can be routed even in the event of a router failure. The BGP4 protocol is a standard that allows for the routing of packets of information sent out from the STP web hosting Network. Each packet of information is evaluated and sent over the best route possible. Because of our redundant network architecture, packets may be sent via alternative routes even if they are being delivered to the same end user. Should one of our providers fail, packets leaving our network are automatically redirected through another route via a different provider.

Bandwidth Utilization

Our Network currently has plenty of excess capacity, even during peak hours. This allows for us to accommodate even the largest spikes in traffic that are often associated with the most popular web sites. We are always adding network connectivity and new routes in an effort to make sure content is delivered to your users as efficiently as possible. A low bandwidth utilization also allows for maximum uptime, even if one of our providers has an outage.
