Modwest Linux Web host has 90% growth rate

John Masterson writes: Modwest Inc., a growing provider of shared and managed hosting services, announced today a near doubling in its customer base thus far in 2002. The company attributes the majority of the explosive growth to customer referrals and existing customer expansions.

"Service enhancements such as spam and virus filtering, as well as the launch of our new managed server plans in December, have definitely contributed to this wave of new customers. But it?s the full-featured Linux hosting environment and customer service that inspires our customers to spread the word," said John Masterson, Modwest co-founder and VP of Business Development.

Through careful planning, studious projections, and minute-by-minute monitoring of all system resources, Modwest has successfully avoided scalability issues common to companies experiencing high growth rates. Masterson explains, "We have always planned for rapid growth, and an integral part of that plan included building an server infrastructure that could accommodate seamless load-balancing and ease of system administration."

The combination of this easy-to-upgrade infrastructure, an aggressive marketing campaign to the open-source hosting market, and a commitment to exceeding customer expectations adds up to explosive growth for Modwest.

"Our customer signup rates are actually still increasing, with no signs of letting up. It?ll be a wild ride, but we're prepared. In fact, this rate of growth is exactly as we intended," says Masterson.
