The hosting network


On this page

LeaseWeb uses a hosting network that takes customization and financial flexibility to a new level by offering 2 network choices.1 The Volume network includes an economical mix of transit providers allowing for the lower cost to be passed on to the customer. The Premium network includes more transit providers and better speed to those hard to reach providers on the Internet. LeaseWeb2 can meet all your network requirements - depending on the type of application you are hosting at LeaseWeb we are able to recommend different networks at varying price points and grades of service.

LeaseWeb will automatically route traffic to third party networks via a private peering connection if such a connection exists between the private backbone and the third party network for highest quality of service. The network includes 33 public internet exchanges and benefits from many peering arrangements to insure optimum network performance. If no peering connections have been established with a specific provider, then the data is routed via a paid transit connection over different sets of Tier1 transit providers depending on the network setup chosen by the customer.

Volume Network

The Volume network provides no less than one default Tier1 transit provider and selected private and public peering on multiple physical connections. This network is engineered to provide a cost-efficient solution to high bandwidth needs which do not need the actively optimized and more expensive transit providers found in the premium mix. LeaseWeb supports port aggregation to ensure the most efficient usage of customers’ hardware thus providing additional savings and financial advantages.

Premium Network

The Premium network is built to fit the requirement of customers with demanding applications which require full redundancy and the ability to leverage latency, international routing performance, and an overall faster and reliable network experience. The Premium network integrates a robust network Service Level Agreement, and leverages several uplinks and our superior networking design to accomplish outstanding performance and reliability. The availability of multiple best quality Tier1 transit providers, diverse private and public peering secure the best available path with the lowest latency and highest connection quality, thus bypassing any network congestions. The typical Premium network segment is equipped with two Cisco routers, each one connected to different core routers via separate physical connections, and uses both gateway and uplink redundancy to ensure non-stop routing and reachability.
