Happy Web Hosting Birthday!

I’ve started to see a few web hosting companies that are celebrating birthdays in the media. It’s fun to see companies that have reached the “ripe old age” of say seven years old! For example, 34sp.com announced today that it is celebrating seven years in web hosting.

According to their press release, “34sp.com was founded in the year 2000. Entrepreneur partners, Stuart Melling and Daniel Foster, have grown 34SP.com to become synonymous with reliability, professionalism, value for the money and true expertise in content management solutions in a hosted environment.

Messieurs Melling and Foster began operations as a small web hosting and design firm operating out of a Manchester flat. Both partners had struggled to find quality, affordable web hosting during their University studies. 34sp.com was therefore founded with powerful features and affordability in mind. The founder’s first ad campaign was to affix hundreds of posters around various campuses of Manchester Universities. In fact, for a period, both Mr. Melling and Mr. Foster met personally with each and every customer that signed up for service! After seven years in business, the company has grown to encompass all facets of content management focused web hosting including: WordPress web hosting, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and domain name registration services.”

Another noteworthy birthday occured earlier this year when HostMySite.com announced its tenth anniversary in web hosting. According to information released by the company, ”

Founded by Lou Honick (CEO) and Neil Heuer (CTO) in 1997, HostMySite.com has thrived in the fiercely competitive website hosting industry. Over their 10 years in business, HostMySite.com has acquired an ever-rising list of awards and glowing testimonials that proves the company’s dedication to customer service and ongoing customer support. Most recently, the company was featured as one of Delaware Today’s ‘Great Places to Work’ and has earned ranking on the last 2 INC. 500 lists of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States.”

I’m sure that there are other web hosting companies out there celebrating these longevity milestones as well. So in addition to congratulating the two hosts mentioned above, I give a general “shout out” to every web hosting company that has proven its staying power over the past decade. Let’s look forward to the next ten years as well!
