C I Host, a provider of web hosting and Internet solutions, on 30th April, celebrated its eight anniversary in business.
According to the company, in spite of the demise of many ‘dot.com’
firms, it has experienced triple-digit growth since its inception,
flourishing as the Internet revolutionized business.
The company had a rather eventful year where it introduced over a dozen
new sales promotions, executed unique marketing campaigns, with the
most prominent one being the ‘Human Billboard’ campaign, and then the company’s famous Wi-Fi guy
doing the rounds state-by-state visiting hot spots. Coming to sales
promotions, the company again displayed its rather customer-centric
approach by sending customers to an All-star game, giving away Plasma TVs, Airline Tickets, Web hosting for life, and more.
“It’s been a wild ride, and it is just beginning. Our C I Host brand is
eight years old and the company is growing faster than ever,” said
Christopher Faulkner, CEO, C I Host. “No one expects an Internet
company to be eight years old. In ‘Internet years’ – sort of like ‘dog
years’ – I think that makes us something like ‘eighty-eight’.”
“We have always been on a fast swim upstream, against the current as
others succumbed to the downturn in business. With the dot.com bust,
many professionals – for the first time in their careers – had to find
other sources of income,” added Faulkner. “Thousands of them became
first-time, e-commerce entrepreneurs. Those entrepreneurs are the core
customers of C I Host, so the downtown probably benefited our company
to a degree.”
