Modwest began in January 2000 when we decided to build a robust, easy-to-use, and economical web-hosting service. Having worked at ISP's and a large managed hosting company, we felt we could build a comprehensive, affordable web hosting service that matched the needs of professionals and beginners alike.
Our own equipment
Many other web hosting companies start out by leasing a server from a larger company with a remote data center. To build our services with powerful internal automation and customer control, we knew we needed 24/7 physical access to our machines. Today, we own all our servers (over thirty now), and they are securely located in a data center where we work every day.
A World-Class Data Center
In 2003, we made a major improvement in service by moving our entire hosting environment and offices to a new facility in Missoula, Montana. The new data center affords us many important advantages, such as extremely high bandwidth capabilities, long-term backup power, and redundant internet connections through multiple providers.
