Our Datacenters

Much like your actual domain name in a virtual sense, the physical geography of your hosting server is critically important to the overall performance of your website. In order to provide the best possible speed, reliability, and connectivity for our customers, ASO maintains servers in two distinct US-based data centers, located in Dallas, Texas, and Dearborn,  Michigan.

Both of our data centers boast high-performance, carrier-neutral networks, as well as provide all the security, amenities, and redundancy that you'd expect. Many of the features of our data centers are listed below:
