Why Should You Host With Us?
|Experience – We are the only cloud server hosting company in the Southeast whose founder was actively involved in building the internet backbone as we know it today (National Science Foundation Project 1989-1993). As a result we have extensive knowledge of hosting environments and can resolve virtually any problems you may encounter.
Stringent Security - Our network SLA is 99.999%. Your data is kept safe through our rigorous monitoring (every 2.5 minutes from three geographically dispersed locations), as well as physical security (on-site armed security guards and surveillance). Furthermore, we deploy “Defense-in-Depth” protocol to server and network security. In other words, layers of security are applied to eliminate a single point of failure.
Compliance - We are one of the few hosting companies that are PCI Compliant and VISA CISP Compliant. We have many other certifications such as certified vendor for federal agencies by SBA, certified vendor for hosting and email services for schools and libraries (E-rate), and CISSP certified. Our infrastructure 100% meets the security and availability demand of federal agencies. We have earned Federal Information Security Management ACT (FISMA) certification through independent evaluation of network and security practices implemented and followed by Localweb.com.
|Localweb.com (American Data Technology, Inc.) is at the forefront of cutting edge cloud computing technology and cloud server hosting. NIST stands for National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Cloud Computing Technology
We are committed to meeting stringent security requirements for our cloud computing environment. Our FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) compliance is verified annually by rigorous audits done by independent third parties.
Your Benefit: You can be confident that your data in the cloud is in a secure and reliable environment.
High-Availability Cloud Server Hosting Provider
Cloud hosting is dependent on the internet connectivity of your cloud provider. Data in the cloud is vulnerable to bandwidth interruptions, DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, and power outages. We overcome these risks by implementing our “Total Redundancy in the Cloud Plan,” which includes zero fault tolerance, dynamic load and access balancing, multi-tenancy, and many more best practices to keep you connected.
Your Benefit: Our next-generation cloud architecture mitigates performance and availability risks so your adoption and deployment of innovative cloud solutions and “time to market” is accelerated.
Scalable Cloud Provider
The economics of cloud computing rely on on-demand computing resources that are rapidly provisioned, such as bandwidth and storage. Your Benefit: Cloud customers can rapidly scale up and down their applications to meet end user demands.
Flexible Cloud Server Hosting Provider
Some cloud providers require lengthy contracts that can result in data portability and lock in issues. We don’t utilize a Vendor Lock-in protocol. Billing is metered in hourly increments.
Your Benefit: You have rapid access to your data any time. This removes data extraction and export issues.
Expert Cloud Provider
Our technical support is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. Our cloud-certified engineers are here to help you. We use the latest technologies, VMware and use the “Defense-in-Depth” monitoring approach. We are rapidly approaching our 18th anniversary as a web hosting provider and we are a true pioneer of internet backbone development (National Science Foundation Project, 1989-1993).
Your Benefit: Our cloud customers have peace of mind trusting their cloud applications to a seasoned cloud hosting provider.
Exchange Server Hosting
Safely and securely log into your email accounts from anywhere, anytime. Your confidential information stays that way. Additionally, you can:
Our approach to providing physical servers and networking for servers goes beyond simple security tasks and activities. Our approach to network security is based on “Defense-in-Depth.” This involves layering a variety of technical security mechanisms such that if one is breached the other protective systems carry on the task of protecting the network. Data centers have online 24/7/365 security guards and surveillance cameras that provide physical support.
2) Wireless Mobile Devices
Synchronize your Exchange email with your wireless device for increased communication and productivity. Direct Push technology offers instant delivery of your messages to your mobile device from the Exchange server. Calendars, contacts, and emails can be synchronized with mobile devices so you are in touch with clients and suppliers at all times. Our hosted wireless email services offer mobility and security for devices such as Blackberry, Treo, Android, and iPhone.
3) Exchange Server Hosting Experience
Trust your Exchange email hosting to a provider that is certified by Microsoft, SBA, and Schools and Libraries division. We have many Exchange email hosting clients that have thousands of users and require absolute email reliability and security. We know that email is the lifeline of organizations in today’s world… and we take email hosting seriously.
Our Exchange email hosting is optimized by the following:
- Blended Bandwidth: Localweb.com uses different carriers so traffic is always routed through the most efficient carrier.
- Redundant internet connectivity: We utilize a high performance infrastructure to meet the demand of your mission-critical applications.
- Total hardware and software support: Save thousands of dollars of in-house costs of equipment and experienced staff.
- Service Guarantee: 99.9% uptime for Microsoft Exchange Server hosting.
Our data centers provide maximum reliability for Exchange servers. Power from the main grid enters the data center via suitably sized power conditioning devices so that all AC and DC power going to the cabinets in the data center is clean and steady within one half of one percent of tolerance with absolutely no spikes or brownouts. In addition, there are four large UPS systems on the data center floor, which are capable of maintaining the data center for up to 45 minutes on full load. It comes down to business economics. In-house email administration includes the cost of owning hardware, software licensing fees, skilled administrators, and training. Outsourcing email administration is an attractive option for many business owners as the cost per mailbox (email user) is a fraction of the price.
Dedicated Server Hosting
While dedicated servers are beneficial to many businesses, they aren’t for everyone. Before you invest in a dedicated server, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you have many web sites that need hosting or require a lot of bandwidth?
- Is the data on your website sensitive? Does it include social security or credit card numbers?
- Are you running a large e-commerce application that requires more memory and bandwidth?
- Are you running a mission critical website?
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, then you are ready for a serious web host. When you choose Localweb.com as your web host you get:
High Performance Hosting Environment:
We have a proven track record of 15 years of providing high performance, dedicated, and managed server hosting in certified SSAE16 data centers. Furthermore, Localweb.com hosts web servers for federal and governmental agencies where high performance, security and availability are of paramount importance.
Leading Physical and Network Security:
Our approach to providing physical and networking security for servers goes beyond the basic tasks and activities. Our approach to network security is based on “Defense-in-Depth.” This involves layering a variety of technical security mechanisms such that if one is breached the other protective systems carry on the task of protecting the network. Data centers have online 24/7/365 security guards and surveillance cameras that provide physical support.
Best Practice in Monitoring and Reporting:
We take a pro-active approach to monitoring and reporting. For example, we use network wide monitoring tools that monitor critical infrastructure components, such as routers and switches, external third party monitoring, and reporting services.
