Website moved back to Germany

After one year in Ireland I finally moved back my homepage onto my colocation server in Germany hosted in the myLoc datacenter in Duesseldorf.

The Facts

  • Modern data center
  • 10,1 Gbit Backbone

  • min. 99% reliability
  • Marken-Hardware
  • Argon fire-fighting system
  • Redundant air condition
  • Redundant energy supply
  • UPS and generator
  • 24/7 security service

The hardware and stats of the server can be checked below:


Windows 2003

PHP 5.x with IIS 6.0

For those who are interested here is the System Info of our new web server.
