Where to host a gambling website?

Where to host a gambling website?

Where to host a gambling website: This is a common recurring theme for new gambling operators starting their new gambling venture.

When we launched our first gambling website back in 2001, we took a $12 per month shared hosting account with a local webhosting company in Florida. We eventually outgreaw the shared account and moved onto a dedicated server to deal with the traffic. Eventually in 2006 we got our gambling license in Curacao and we then moved our servers to the Island. And that is where we remain today.

Today there are some pretty strict rules governing gambling activity and for this reason it is wise to host your websites in a gambling friendly jurisdiction.

Curacao is a jurisdiction that makes it business out of remote gambling licensing activity and for this reason is a very good location for you to start your operation and to put your infrastructure. The odds of your servers being pulled from their racks is low.

We work with a plethora of start up casino operators and offer a simple shared hosting account from around 32.50 EUR to get going. For those needing more resources, we offer a VPS solution.

Our Data Center

We host our servers in E-Commerce Park in Curacao. Our infratructure is managed by OnApp and we focus on VPS and Shared server offerings.

DDOS Protection

Gambling websites do attract DDOS attacks. For this reason the data center uses DDOS mitigation in order to keep our servers up and running. Not only this, we advise our clients to use CloudFlare as part of their stratergy to speed up their sites and to secure them from attacks.
