Domain Name Privacy Protection

May 15th, 2010

Part of our security initiative at Omnis Network is to provide services that protect the privacy of our clients. Domain name whois privacy protection is perhaps the easiest and most effective privacy service to implement. The service is highly recommended for all domain name buyers. Here's how it works:

For $0.99 a month Omnis agrees to act as an agent to act on your behalf. Your personal information, normally on display via a public whois database, is replaced with our contact information. You retain ownership of your domain name.

What does this mean in practical terms? In normal circumstances, your contact information is displayed in a public database:

Administrative Contact:
John Smith
123 Example Street
Example, State 12345
Phone: 1-310-555-1234
Fax: 1-310-555-1234
Email: you@example.com

The Omnis Network whois privacy protection service replaces your contact information with that of a generic agent:

Administrative Contact:
Guarded Services
3655 Torrance Blvd Suite 230
Torrance, CA 90503, US
Phone: 1-310-316-1688
Email: example.com@guardedwhois.com

For $0.99 per month this is a bargain. Follow our blog to learn more about the steps Omnis Network has taken to increase security and protect your privacy.

Email Services

May 11th, 2010

Email hosting is one of the most popular services that Omnis Network provides, and for a good reason: our email servers have a well-deserved reputation for speed, reliability, and security. In today's blog post I'll describe how we've worked to create a robust, scalable email solution by following the path of an email.

The first step in the email process is receiving an email. The Omnis eMail Cloud receives all incoming mail. The eMail Cloud is a load-balanced cluster of servers. Load balancing is a technical process that spreads the work of processing incoming emails across all of the servers in the cloud. Load balancing keeps the cloud running fast so that your emails are processed instantly. Spam and virus filtering take place at this step.

The next step is storage. Emails are routed to the high-security email storage servers. Omnis email storage servers use RAID5 to prevent loss of data. The storage servers allow your email to be accessible via POP, IMAP, or webmail.

The final step is sending an email. Emails stored on the high-security email storage servers are sent out via the Omnis eMail Cloud. The Omnis eMail Cloud processes the email immediately.

Hopefully this gives you some insight into how we manage email here at Omnis Network. All of our hosting accounts include @yourbusiness email addresses. For more information, or to open a new hosting account please contact sales@omnis.com.

Welcome!

Hello everyone,

My name is Christopher and I work in the marketing department here at Omnis. I've created this blog to give you a personal look at the inner workings of our company. Each week I'll answer questions, post news updates about the projects we're working on, and describe services we're rolling out.

To kick things off I'd like to give you a basic overview of our company:

Omnis Network has been in the web hosting business since 1999. Our hosting technology has changed significantly over the years, but we've always focused on providing reliable, scalable web hosting for both personal and business sites. We've grown from a small office to a company that hosts more than 200,000 personal and business accounts.

All of our employees work out of our office in Torrance, California. None of our support is outsourced. The same employees that answer your support tickets are the guys that are here to answer your calls.

Omnis Network uses the latest technology, known as cloud hosting, to host all websites. All of our hosted sites are on the Omnis Cloud. Cloud hosting ensures that a single server failure has no effect on client websites. The adoption of cloud hosting technology has resulted in a near-flawless uptime record for both websites and email.

I hope that this has given you a basic overview of our company. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to email me at sales@omnis.com
