DDoS Technical Information

Matthew Nappo, COO - Dedicated.com

"The moment Dedicated.com executed its transition over to GSL the change in routing superiority, network architecture and lowered latency was noticeably superb, we worked hand in hand every step of the way, making it an absolutely seamless transition."

Kerry Denten, MD - Digital Hybrid

"Making GSL our exclusive colocation and primary transit provider, has been one of the best decisions we’ve made for our business. GSL’s support has consistently proven to be second-to-none, and the team have shown themselves to be nimble and flexible in their approach to customer relations, continually exceeding expectations."

Damian Ivereigh, MD - Launtel

"We call GSL our 'secret sauce'. Their low-latency capacity is by far the quickest we have seen, our gaming customers love it!"
