Tier 2 host site
At a tier 2 host site, your web site sits on a system tied to a tier 1 site with a T1 or T3 connection to the tier 1 site. This means the data presented to a browser must go through a series of routers and the bandwidth is shared by others on the tier 2 site. Generally, unless your web site will be heavily hit, this may not be a problem but may not save you any money. At NHBweb, we lease servers in a tier 1 datacenter and support your web site.
With a Tier 2 host site, the provider must connect to a Tier 1 site. A tier 3 host site connects to a Tier 2 site which is connected to a Tier 1 site. At smaller sites, you might not be able to obtain the service you need. At some of these sites, you would be responsible for administering and maintaining your site.
