Although Tier.Net Technologies, LLC (Florida) was formed in 2013, Tier.Net has been a familiar name in the hosting industry for much longer. In fact, the Internet still had its training wheels on at the beginning of this story! So how did Tier.Net become the international hosting leader it is today?
In the 1990’s, Tier.Net was first established in the southern tier of New York State. The website at www.tier.net served as a community portal for the Binghamton, New York area, also providing website design and hosting services to area businesses along with free hosting services to non-profit organizations. Notably, while Tier.Net’s support center is based in Florida, Tier.Net Technologies maintains its sales and administrative offices in downtown Binghamton to this day.
Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, Binghamton locals (aka Binghamtonians) could find restaurant reviews, information about local businesses, community events, and much more by logging on to Tier.Net. Business owners throughout the southern tier of New York and the northern tier of Pennsylvania took advantage of Tier.Net’s popularity by placing advertisements on the Tier.Net website to drive traffic to their sites.
In 2001, Tier.Net was purchased by Restaurant.com, a world-famous online restaurant guide and promotion site. In a strategic deal, Restaurant.com handed the company off to Tier Internet Services, Inc. shortly afterward. Much of Tier.Net’s current management team either owned, or was employed by, Tier.Net at that time.
Throughout the 2000’s, Tier.Net experienced rapid growth through a joint venture and partnership with a local television station. The local community portal and hosting services continued and evolved, and such was the beginning of Tier.Net’s modern era.
In 2013, Tier.Net was acquired by Tier.Net Technologies, LLC and has since expanded globally. Tier.Net provides shared, reseller, VPS, cloud, dedicated, and colocation hosting for businesses of all sizes from the United States to Central America, to the UK, China, India, and beyond! Tier.Net employs worldclass in-house staff, owns its own hardware, and offers multiple datacenter location options to its clients. Tier.Net is not a reseller or “middle-man” to someone else’s service. We are the direct provider of top-quality, reliable services backed by industry-leading support and uptime guarantees.
