Our Web Hosting History
Whatcom Hosts origins date back to the late 90's, when it
was originally part of Mindfly, Inc., a web development and
design firm, founded in 1999.
Initially, Mindfly resold the web hosting services provided by
other larger web hosting companies. This reseller
arrangement for hosting went on for several years, but after
over 5 different resellers, and much growth, the decision was
made for Mindfly to start its own hosting business.
In 2002, after many months of planning, Mindfly started its
hosting operation and began the tedious process of moving all of
its customer accounts onto the new web hosting servers.
The web hosting operation performed well, of course there were
the expected bumps and bruises, occasional change in vendors,
and other issues that are to be expected when running any
In 2005 Mindfly made another major change to its hosting
business by making the decision to switch control panel vendors,
from Sphera (the original selection) to Plesk (owned by SWSoft).
And so another major undertaking began. The 'migration' of
control panels lasted over a year, but proved again to be the
right decision for Mindfly and its customers.
Then, in the middle of 2006, it was decided that the web hosting
operations of Mindfly and it's customers would be better served
if it became a separate entity. So, with the same great
people that made Mindfly Web Hosting a success, Whatcom Host was born.
We would like to thank all of our customers that have help make
us who we are today, and we look forward to the many years to
