Who We Are
On a bitterly cold winter night in 2007, what would later be called Agent Black Hosting was born. We started with a small portfolio of shared hosting accounts and we had no idea the wild ride that would await us ahead. Backed by some fantastic partners in the industry (big shout out to Jesse and Max!), a little hope, lots of sleepness nights, and even a few tears, Agent Black was molded by James into the company it is today. Focused on providing an excellent client experience, top notch US Based technical support, and a desire to be different than the "big guys" in the industry, James set the course to make Agent Black what it is today.
In 2010 we expanded our product line up from simple Shared Hosting plans into Virtual Private Servers, Domain Name Registrations, and our first Dedicated Servers. It was during 2010 that we transformed from just another Shared Hosting provider into a company who is able to grow with their clients as their needs changed.
2012 was a busy year of growth for us in the Shared Hosting market. We completed hardware upgrades for our Shared Hosting Services to support the continued growth in that market. 2012 also saw us locate into new datacenters in the midwest to better serve our growing client base in the Central United States. 2012 also saw our continued growth in the Dedicated Servers market with the addition of new hardware and options for our clients.
2013 entered the scene like a lion. Kicking off the new year on our excellent growth in 2012, we upgraded our client billing and support system to a new, user friendly product which allowed us to expand our product offerings and provided our clients an easier to understand billing and support interface. In April, we expanded our datacenter options to include Phoenix and Amsterdam. This has allowed us to better serve our European clients with a world class datacenter right in their backyard!
2015 saw us introduce refreshed server hardware for our Shared Hosting clients, Dedicated Server clients, and a new datacenter option! In 2015 we added Ashburn, Virgina to our datacenter lineup. With the addition of Ashburn, we exited our datacenter options in the Midwest as we felt Ashburn is better suited to serve our clients on the East Coast as well as the Midwest. Ashburn also serves as our primary datacenter choice for those clients who wish to host in the United States but still have low latency times to points in the European Union.
In late 2017 and into early 2018, we began to search for premium datacenter partners that provided us with a wide selection of options, locations, support, and growth potiential. We felt now was the time for us to reevaluate our current partners and see what potiental was available. We made the difficult decision to terminate some of our datacenter options that we believed were inconsistent with our growth, did not offer the greatest value for our clients, and had not kept up with the changing hardware scene.In early 2018 we partnered with a new datacenter provider that has a proven track record of growth, wide selection of datacenters, constantly evolving hardware options including crypto mining machines, and the network connectivity needed to deliver our client's data around the world. With options in LA (2), Atlanta (1), Florida (2), and NYC (1), we believe we are now best situated to handle the next phase of our continued growth.
Today we continue our march to being the best web partner available. We constantly review our product lineup to ensure we are bringing our clients the newest hardware options, the best datacenter options, and we continue to remain focused on being your partner to success. No matter where you are, we will work to place you into the best datacenter suited for your needs.
