FairfaxUnderground.com is a privately owned and co-located server. It is not part of a "shared hosting" or VPS plan. The server hardware is privately owned and I make arrangements to host the entire physical server in datacenters with the necessary power and bandwidth.
The original host of FairfaxUnderground.com was my old employer PatriotNet. In the very beginning this site resided on a 400Mhz Celeron tower workstation running Linux 2.4.20 which sat under my desk connected to PatriotNet's office 1.5Mbps SDSL line.
As traffic grew, "langsam", the server hosting FairfaxUnderground.com was moved to PatriotNet's AboveNet collocation facility at 8110 Boone Blvd in Vienna.
After PatriotNet was sold to IceWEB and later Leros, a Leros Network Engineer incompetently mangled long-established routes (I had previously re-routed the /24 used for office SDSL to the AboveNet core router to avoid changing IPs when the physical server was moved) which brought this server down for nearly 36 hours. This outage was complicated by the fact that Leros had not paid the AboveNet bill and as such it was difficult to physically extract my (privately owned) server. This was heavily documented here:
After the Leros fiasco langsam/FairfaxUnderground.com moved to the Ashburn Equinix facility and was hosted by PullThePlug LLC, a terrific host. Unfortunately PullThePlug LLC was bought by Latisys (now Latisys Ashburn) and terminated my service based on an unscrupulous abuse complaint and frivolous lawsuit (I am still battling the individual who caused this). This situation caused significant downtime it was documented here:
As I have access to the Equinix's DC-2 facility I immediately made arrangements with my current host, Carpathia, to move the physical server from Latisys's Equinix Ashburn cage to Carpathia's Equinix Ashburn cage where it has remained since.
Just some history for those interested.
And yes, this thread will now be moved to Off-Topic.
