APlus.Net offers dedicated servers, web hosting, web design, marketing and is an ICANN accredited domain name registrar.

Five of June's top ten hosting companies run Linux on their main sites. Three of the others use FreeBSD and the remaining two use Windows Server 2003.
Netcraft measures and makes available the response times of fifty leading hosting providers' sites. The performance measurements are made at fifteen minute intervals from separate points around the internet, and averages are calculated over the immediately preceding 24 hour period.
From a customer's point of view, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent than outages on hosting companies' own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why we choose to rank our table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.
Further information on the measurement process and current measurements are available.
