Hosting Saracen Timeline

  • is born
    September 1, 2000

    Host Your Web was created when we bought our 1st server a Cobalt Raq3 which we hosted in the nerve center of the UK, London Docklands. Over the years as we gained more and more clients, so did the number of services we were requested to offer.

  • 1st Website Developed
    January 8, 2001

    This was the day we caved to demand and created our 1st client website.

  • 1st SEO Project
    March 22, 2001

    It was around this time when a client approached us and asked how to rank their website in search engine results. At that time there were 100's of search engines. Hard to imagine that there are only 2 major players now.

  • 1st Major Expansion
    August 20, 2003

    Around this time the business expanded when we bought some servers that we co-located in a datacenter in Houston, Texas. USA.

  • 2nd Major Expansion
    April 9, 2004

    We purchased more servers. these were added to the datacenter in Houston and also a new datacenter in Chicago.

  • European Expansion
    April 9, 2007

    We bought servers that we co-located at a datacenter in Frankfurt. This was the start of our expansion into Europe as our client sites were migrated to be closer to their actual website visitors.

  • Australasia Expansion
    October 20, 2011

    This was a challenging time as we expanded into Australasia as the business was securing more and more clients in China, Australia, Thailand and The Philippines. We opted to co-locate the servers at a datacenter in Singapore.

  • Saracen Media Group Created
    January 1, 2014

    Saracen Media Group was created in January, 2014 as we split Host Your Web into separate business units and create a brand name that would be the main focus moving the business forwards.
