A Brief History of Netsville
Welcome to our new website!
In 1994, Netsville began as a custom programming shop. Perl and C were the languages of choice for projects back then. We brought magazines, mail-order catalogs, and countless mom-n-pop stores online. Reliable web hosting was hard to come by so many of our customers ended up hosting with us.
We were one of the only companies to offer secure web hosting. Certificates cost $5000 each in those days and ran exclusively on the Netscape Commerce Web Server. We hosted many successful online stores on this platform.
Our retail e-commerce product called Hazel was born from this endeavour. We packaged it as a stand-alone product so others could install it on their own web servers. Thousands downloaded this software and it brought us new business opportunities. We were instrumental in promoting e-commerce as it’s known today, making people feel safe and secure purchasing online.
For a while we switched gears and became a traditional “ISP” offering dialup, DSL, and web hosting. We absorbed many small dialup providers and grew our infrastructure. Eventually, we built our own data center, as a virtual caretaker of others’ properties.
We took on Internet Marketing, helping companies build not just websites, but their complete Internet presence through promotion, email, and social media. The web was mainstream now. Much of the technology was behind the scenes. Netsville was there making it all run smoothly.
Today we leverage all these experiences and serve customers as a project, property, and presence management company, IP3M for short. We support the full range of Internet technology. There are so many moving parts today. Let us help you make your Internet Property a success!
