Fort Worth, Texas – (The Hosting News) – September 10, 2007 – Web hosting and solutions company, C I Host, has been ranked among the 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States by Inc. magazine, with over 250,000 clients and a growth rate of 85 percent, placing it at #3488 in the list.
Christopher Faulkner, CEO of C I Host offered, ”We are extremely pleased to be included in such company. We have enjoyed consistent growth over the years due to our solid financial foundation, cutting edge technology, the support of our customers and the skill and dedication of our 220 employees.”
In 2006, C I Host added more than 60,000 new clients all over the world and lowered its churn rate to 2 percent, less than half of the rate in 2005 and considered the lowest in the web hosting industry. Revenues increased more than 20 percent and profits increased more than 25 percent. The main data center in the Dallas-Fort Worth area was expanded for the ninth time in ten years and the company has contracted for another 60,000 square feet of space. All this expansion has been supported from the organic growth of the company with no use of venture capital, bank loans or outside investments.
Mr. Faulkner continued, ”We are extremely happy to be at this juncture in the growth of our company. The combination of a solid financial footing and a supportive customer base bodes well for our future.”
Over the past ten years, C I Host has incurred no long-term debt and has been able to anticipate economic changes accurately enough to successfully ride out the collapse of the dot.com bubble and even show growth during that time. In large part, that growth has occurred because C I Host has consistently put its customers at the center of its operation – using quality-controlled customer service programs, a live chat room with the CEO, customer satisfaction surveys and a ”Customers Rule” program to keep the focus on the needs of its clients.
Mr. Faulkner concluded, ”We have been blessed with tremendous success, and none of it would have been possible without the support of our customers. They are truly the collective CEO of my company.”
