March 1st, 1997 -

ZTNet was officially formed. The company struggled to keep afloat during its first year of business, and by March of 1998, had yet to establish a stable presence.

April, 1998 -

ZTNet changes its goals and perspectives from providing web hosting for businesses, to helping small sites who were in need of a stable web presence. This was done, in exchange for advertising on the sites.

ZTNet changes completely over to its new business strategy, and begins to grow at a rapid pace. Nearly tripling its income in only a few months.

September 1998 -

ZTNet outgrows its small home based headquarters, and is forced to make a giant leap forward. In cooperation with Internet Operations Center, ZTNet moved to a high-speed data center, to continue providing its customers with fast and reliable services.

January 4th, 1999 -

ZTNet becomes ZTNet LLC. ZTNet increases its customer base nearly 10 fold, and its gross revenue nearly 2000 percent, over the course of 5 months.

March 17th, 1999 -

ZTNet re-visits its roots of web hosting, in a brand new way. ZTNet aims to provide a service for people looking to get into the internet marketplace, but without the hastle of setting up an entire internet hosting service from the ground up.

ZTNet continues to focus on its free hosting strategy. With a move to a new data center, ZTNet is able to accommodate its continually growing community.
