Blacknight Network

Blacknight is one of the few hosting providers to have designed and built its own network, specifically to meet the needs of our customers.


The core network runs on Cisco ASR 9900 series routers with multiple 100Gbps uplinks. This gives us the ability to easily cope with large traffic spikes without impacting other customers. The Blacknight Network runs a combination of IS-IS, BGP and MPLS to ensure the highest levels of reliability.

IPv6 Ready:

The Blacknight Network is dual stacked allowing customers to utilise IPv4 and IPv6.


Blacknight is a member of a number of the largest peering exchanges in Europe, including AMS-IX, DE-CIX, INEX and LINX. We also have direct connectivity to several large content providers including Akamai, Netflix, Google and Facebook. Peering gives us unparalleled access to many leading ISPs. It ensures your data gets to the end user as quickly and efficiently as possible.


We are members of RIPE NCC and are active members of the ISP community.

Optimised Routing:

The Blacknight Network uses an Intelligent Routing Platform (IRP) to ensure your data is taking the most efficient path to its destination. The IRP constantly monitors for latency and packet loss, and can route around issues automatically. Our team of network engineers continually monitors the Blacknight Network to ensure the highest levels of performance and reliability.
