Startup Festival Montreal

Are you a starving startup?

We were once, and we know that our road to becoming the largest hosting provider in Canada would have been a lot harder if we didn’t have some help along the way.

So at iWeb, we are looking to do our part to support the startup and developer communities. We see a great opportunity to do so by sponsoring the second edition of International Startup Festival in our hometown of Montreal.

Once again, this year, we are putting our money where our mouth is by offering to pay for tickets to theInternational Startup Festival where you will have access to industry giants, thought leaders and your peers in the various stages of the startup lifecycle.

We will award tickets to the startups whose story we like the most.

iWeb’s Network Listed 3rd Most Reliable In May 2012

Published on June 7, 2012 at 9:11 am by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

Netcraft, a firm which measures reliability, uptime and network performance, has ranked iWeb.com as one of the most reliable web hosting company sites in May 2012. Third this month, iWeb has regularly appeared in the top ten over the last year.

Netcraft’s measurements will allow you to evaluate reliability of data transfer. The reliability performance is monitored every 15 minutes, from several reference points.

According to Netcraft, the percentage of failed requests is more pertinent from a customer’s point of view than outages on hosting companies’ own sites, as this gives a pointer to reliability of routing, and this is why they choose to rank their table by fewest failed requests, rather than shortest periods of outage.

Netcraft is a British Internet services company that provides internet security services and research data and analysis on many aspects of the Internet since 1995. It is a respected authority on the market share of web servers, operating systems, hosting providers, ISPs, encrypted transactions, electronic commerce, scripting languages and content technologies on the internet.

The complete analysis is available on Netcraft’s website.

iWeb.com Among Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies for 5th Consecutive Year – 2012 PROFIT 200

Published on June 6, 2012 at 9:28 am by iWeb Technologies in: iWeb Articles

Montreal, Quebec – June 6, 2012 – iWeb has been ranked as Canada’s 82nd fastest growing company in the 24th annual PROFIT 200 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by PROFIT Magazine. iWeb joins an exclusive group of only 14 companies on this year’s ranking who have achieved at least five appearances on the list.

Ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 200 profiles the country’s most successful growth companies.

The challenge of sustainable growth

iWeb, who provides Cloud service and Internet hosting services from its four (4) Data centers in Montreal, grew its revenue 605%, from $8.8M in 2007 to $35.5M in 2011.

“We are very, very proud to be ranked on the PROFIT 200 for a fifth consecutive year, 2011 has probably been our busiest yet!” says iWeb CEO Eric Chouinard, who adds that “As iWeb continues to grow, maintaining high-percentage revenue growth becomes more complex, as everything else – like staff and IT infrastructure – must scale and grow proportionally. This is only possible thanks to our team’s dedication, collaboration and relentless desire to innovate and succeed; congratulations to every one of our 229 employees!”

Earlier this year, shortly after announcing a new, “kinder” Cloud server service, iWeb took another step towards its mission to grow into a $100 Million dollar company when it appointed former Bell Canada and SUN Microsystems VP Christian Primeau to President and Chief Operating Officer.

iWeb’s progress in the PROFIT 200 ranking (formerly Profit 100):
