We provide a 24/7 access.

Our connectivity is T1 speed.

We backup our systems

You will need to register your own domain in www.gkg.net (preferred)

It will take a number of days for the domain to point to our servers.  Additionally, we are not notified by some domain registry services (such as gkg.net) that we have a new domain, so the domain registrant is responsible for letting us know.  Please notify This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  Following notice, it may take us a few days to get it set up on our end.
