pair Networks, Inc. Celebrates Anniversary

pair Networks, Inc. today announced the kick off of its 15th anniversary celebration. Beginning its 16th year of profitability, South Side-based pair Networks is poised to continue to provide reliable Web hosting services and the highest quality customer support, all while maintaining a deep commitment to sustainability.

During the week of Jan. 10, pair Networks’ anniversary celebration will include customer specials on Web hosting and domain name registration.
Founded at a time when a 28.8 modem was considered a fast Internet connection, pair Networks has grown in reach and scope as the Web itself has grown. Over the past 15 years, the company has provided faster, more comprehensive services as they have become available, but never lost sight of its core values.

“From day one, we have focused on integrity and unmatched customer service,” said CEO and founder Kevin Martin. “We stand out for our values and independence. While the rest of the industry has become largely commoditized, we’re still entrepreneurs.”

pair Networks boasts longevity and continuity in a fast-changing industry. All members of the company’s senior management have been part of pair Networks for over a decade. True to its Pittsburgh roots, the company started in Lawrenceville and now occupies about 30,000 square feet in Pittsburgh’s historic South Side.

“In Internet time, we’re about 800 years old,” jokes Martin. Indeed, Martin founded the company when e-commerce was in its infancy and watching a movie at home required premium cable TV or a trip to the video store.

Over the Last 15 Years pair Networks has…
hosted hundreds of thousands of Web sites
hosted customers from more than 150 countries
deployed thousands of Web servers
served billions of banner ads
been online continuously for more than 180 months
delivered more than one billion Web hits per day via its servers

Even as technology moved ahead at lightning speed, pair Networks has always kept its focus on the same cornerstones of high-quality Web hosting: legendary uptime, excellent Web hosting hardware and open-source software, and customer service and support that is unmatched in the industry.

In 1996, the company began with a single T1 connection, a slower Internet connection than most DSL and cable services commonly found in people’s homes today. pair Networks has grown from that single connection to hosting hundreds of thousands of Web sites on a network powered by multiple Gigabit and 10-Gigabit Ethernet links.

Through years of rapid expansion, pair Networks has never lost its commitment to environmental goals. The company is 100 percent carbon neutral, and workplace policies encourage earth-friendly commutes and many other sustainable practices.
