T1 Shopper's Business Partners

T1 Shopper wouldn't be where it was today without the teamwork and support we've received from the below business partners.  We would be happy to refer anyone to these below companies because our experience has shown they offer great products and services with excellent support.

IMPACT Software has been operating in Southern California since 1992. Together with its operations in the Philippines, IMPACT Software offer value priced services with top-notched qualities. IMPACT Software gives customers the ability to expand I.T. resources quickly and has a proven track record of completing projects on-time, on-budget and exceeding requirements. For many young and/or small business, IMPACT Software is their I.T. department.

T1 Shopper has been engaged with IMPACT Software as their premier technology partner since 2004. T1 Shopper appreciates IMPACT Software not only as its source for high technology talent but also as a teammate in business.


From 2004 to 2008 the T1 Shopper site has been hosted by Verio on the legacy iServer platform (with support provided by the legacy iServer team out of Orem, Utah) with the servers physically located in Dulles, Virginia. 

For over four years the ViaVerio/iServer team provided the most amazing technical support T1 Shopper has ever experienced. The support team was always available and able to either fix things quickly or provide detailed assistance - even when they were asked out of scope questions ranging from TLS email implementation to Sender Policy Framework (SPF) DNS records. The technical support team is quite experienced and expertly trained. Additionally, T1 Shopper's DNS continues to be hosted with Verio since 2005 and has an average resolution time of under 20 milliseconds.  

T1 Shopper is impressed with the quality and consistency of support that the ViaVerio team provided and would recommend their services to anyone.  A technology company is only as good as its technical support and the ViaVerio/Orem team leads the hosting industry in this regard.

Colocation by U.S. Colo

U.S. Colo is based in the high-tech heart of downtown Los Angeles, California: the 30-story One Wilshire building where over 220 carriers, including AT&T, Global Crossing, Level 3, MCI WorldCom, Qwest, Sprint, Verizon and XO Communications are located. Recently expanded to Seattle, U.S. Colo owns their own state-of-the-art data center offering connectivity to AT&T, Quest, MFN, XO, Level 3, Mzima and others. Since its founding in 1998, U.S. Colo has focused on its core business of providing co-location space, cross connections, and bandwidth to demanding customers from over a dozen countries.

T1 Shopper has partnered with US Colo since 2007 for all of its bandwidth and collocation services.

Red Hat Logo

Red Hat was founded in 1993 and is the premier Linux and open source provider. Rated as CIO Insight Magazine's Most Valued Vendor for the second consecutive year, Red Hat maintains the highest value and reliability rankings among its customers, and is the most recognized Linux brand in the world.

T1 Shopper used FreeBSD since its inception and we were very pleased with it.  We migrated to Red Hat in late 2007.  To date, the operating system has been quite stable although we've found the Red Hat technical support to be less helpful than we hoped.  If we were to do it again, we would consider Ubuntu Server Edition a viable candidate.

MySQL Logo

MySQL is the world's most popular open source database software, with over 100 million copies of its software downloaded or distributed throughout its history. With superior speed, reliability, and ease of use, MySQL has become the preferred choice of corporate IT Managers because it eliminates the major problems associated with downtime, maintenance, administration and support. The company is privately held and without debt, and it is financed by venture capital since July 2001.

T1 Shopper has been using MySQL since its inception and we're very pleased with its ease of use and performance under load. We don't know of another database platform which combines such ease of deployment, maintenance, performance and web application integration at any price.

PHP Logo

PHP was developed in 1994 and publicly released on June 8,1995. Since then, of about 142 million web sites in the world online as of October 2007 it appears as though about 21 million of them are running PHP. T1 Shopper started migrating off of PERL to PHP in 2006.  PHP5 has integrated SOAP support which enables T1 Shopper to effectively connect to our telecommunications partner's API's.

Of the many scripting languages like Java, .NET and others, in our experience PHP has proven to deliver the same performance while providing a less bloated and simpler-to-maintain code base. PHP's native integration into MySQL, Apache, SOAP and other critical components of the T1 Shopper architecture make it our scripting platform of choice. Ruby is another viable candidate.

Apache HTTP Server Project Logo

The Apache HTTP Server was developed in February of 1995. Since then, of about 142 million web sites in the world online as of October 2007 it appears as though about 42% of them are running Apache.

T1 Shopper has been using Apache since its inception based on Apache's wide support, proven security and performance (not to mention that the owner of T1 Shopper went to elementary and high school with one of Apache's founder's, Brian Behlendorf).
