The WebHostingBuzz Story: How We Were Born

Our Story

WebHostingBuzz was founded back in 2002. The hosting market was very different then with lots of over-priced, larger web hosting companies who 'owned' the market. Pricing was high and levels of service were low. The lack of good competition allowed the larger hosting companies to continue to get away with over-priced and underperforming web hosting services.

WebHostingBuzz was born with the idea of doing things a little different.

We wanted web hosting to be a commodity that everyone could afford. We wanted to offer service levels that we could be proud of and have a customer service team who had a genuine interest in helping customers. And of course speak Plain English, because many of the web hosts back in 2002 would simply throw complicated user manuals at customers who asked for help.

We started small but with a big idea. Starting with just a reseller of a larger web hosting company, we set about completing our objectives and shaking the industry up. Granted, we were not the only company out there who had similar ideas but we worked hard and experienced significant growth.

By the end of our first year, we had grown from the simple reseller hosting account to running 3 of our own dedicated servers. We had almost 1000 clients and had started to develop a reputation for affordable quality.

The rest of the story, as they say, is history and today in 2013 we have over 250 of our own servers in 3 different data centers. We've grown from 2 employees to over 45. We now have well over 250,000 websites hosted on our network and we're continuing to grow.

One thing that remains clear and always in focus is our original objective. Good, fast web hosting backed up by great customer service at an affordable price.
