Basics - What you need to know

Basics - What you need to know

Data Centre
Hostek virtual private servers (VPS) are held in two data centres located in St. Louis and Dallas. All server backups are stored in an off-site location so if disaster were ever to occur, your data is safe.

Power Management
Two separate power feeds provide the juice to run the data centre. Hostek’s equipment is also protected by uninterruptible power supply systems and backup generators. All storage systems feature multiple levels of redundancy, so data will never be lost in case of power failure.

Physical Security
The buildings that hold the data centre have restricted access and include 24/7 on-site security. Biometric fingerprint scans and access codes are required to enter sensitive areas, and a security surveillance system monitors all actions within the facility.

Server Access by Customer
Physical Access: No
Root Access: Yes
