E-mail & Web Site Hosting

BKR Studio Inc - Web Site Design

E-mail & Web Site Hosting

Have you ever had the unfortunate experience to be stuck between two vendors? The common scenario is each points their finger at the other saying "It's their fault!". We've heard this story many times from new client's who were caught between their ex Web designer and their Web hosting company. At BKR Studio this situation will never happen to you. Here's why.

The Web site we build for you will be hosted by us, in our data center. Who better to deliver your new site to the world than the designers and developers who spent hours building and polishing it to a high gloss in preparation for your site visitors? Same for your e-mail. Which do you think is going to be the most reliable at getting your contact forms or order notifications? The mail server run by the big telephone company that sits.. well I'm not really sure where their servers are, or our mail server that's in the rack right next to the Web servers?

About now you should be asking....

  • Can you reliably host my site and e-mail?
  • What's your uptime?
  • Do you have two connections to the Internet...not just one?
  • Is your data center secure?
Our answers? Yes, 99.999%, No (we have three), and Yes, it is very secure.

We have been hosting Web sites and e-mail since 1996. Our current data center was built during the summer of 2005 and went live that fall. So far in 2007 our network down time has been a total of 30 seconds of scheduled down time as we doubled the bandwidth on our primary Internet connection.  By the way, if you didn’t catch it above, we have three Internet connections.  If one of the connections fails, there are two more waiting at all times to deliver traffic to your Web site or transport your e-mail.

The data center was built with security in mind. The poured concrete walls are a foot thick. There are no windows or exterior doors. The data center's security system monitoring is handled by a third party system that logs all entrances and exits. Both the incoming Internet connections and the power from the downtown grid (which hasn't failed yet since 1997) is buried for increased dependability (immune from ice storms or car crashes into poles). But just in case, we do have a backup generator that will provide power to our redundant battery back up units within 45 seconds of a power loss. Those redundant UPS units feed into the redundant power supplies in our servers. The few servers that don't have redundant power supplies are fed through an automatic transfer switch so if one of the UPS units dies, the server still has power. Did I mention that we have two air conditioning units for redundant cooling? There I go, getting redundant again and again…but this case, redundant is good!  Oh, I forgot to bring up our fire suppression system.  We even back up the fire department!

At BKR Studio your Web site and e-mail is our first and only priority. We don't run dial-up, DSL or any other type of Internet access service on our network backbone. Our bandwidth is dedicated solely to your Web site traffic.

Our network and servers are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Backups are performed nightly on all of the Web, e-mail, and database servers and taken off-site for disaster recovery. You can sleep well at night knowing your Web site will be up today and tomorrow!

So what can we do for you with our highly available (you thought I was going to say redundant didn't you!) data center?
