Get to know Secure Dragon LLC.

Our Company

Secure Dragon LLC. is the next generation of secure off-site Backup Servers, Virtual Private Servers, DDOS Protection, and Web Hosting! We strive to provide our clients with the highest security, availability, and support possible!

Secure Dragon LLC. was formed in October of 2010 in Largo, Florida by a small team who each contain specialized skill sets, knowledge, and experience to bring to the table. We've built this company on a strong platform by taking the enterprise level servers, placing them in highly redundant fortresses, raising the drawbridge, and we even have a dragon standing guard.

Our main focus is providing quality service. Above all we are a company that strives to be the best we can be, whether we are answering support tickets or conversing directly with a client, our goal is to maintain a level of professionalism while still providing a casual atmosphere. Respect and honesty are key values we hold dear. We always attempt to offer complete transparency and keep our clients informed of what is going on via an open line of communication. We do not make outlandish claims or offer unrealistic service levels and only provide what we truly feel is our best. All of our decisions are made in an attempt to benefit you the client.

You can sleep easy at night knowing your data is in safe hands. Need rescue from a hosting nightmare? Let our staff be your knight in shining armor.

Secure Dragon LLC. is a fully registered Limited Liability Company with the Florida Department of State Division of Corporations. We obtain our IPs directly from ARIN (AS54561)

Our Infrastructure

Secure Dragon LLC. owns and maintains all of our own hardware, no renting or leasing here!

All of our servers are Dell enterprise servers with multiple Intel Xeon processors, a minimum of 16GB of RAM, multiple enterprise grade hard drives in RAID10 with a hardware RAID controller and battery backup unit, multiple gigabit NICs, and are constantly being monitored both internally and externally. Our OpenVZ nodes have custom build anti-abuse automated systems to prevent bad neighbors on our networks.

We currently colocate all of our hardware in 9 different data centers around the US and are constantly expanding. Our primary focus in a data center is good connectivity so we thoroughly test the network before bringing any servers live in each location. We've even setup a website just so you can test our networks before you order so you know what to expect. All of our IPs are owned by us and are issued directly from ARIN so we have full control over our IPs including rDNS and SWIP management. All of our non-DDOS protected locations have native IPv6 and our OpenVZ clients are assigned a dedicated /64 from our ARIN allocation.
