About Intro

PS Ten Years

GazelleHost has grown from a single desktop server serving a handful of client's accounts to a fast growing provider of shared, VPS and dedicated web hosting as well as Domain Name Registration and Management and Comprehensive Marketing and Design Services. We built our brands slowly and organically to always under-promise and over-deliver. Gazelle Brands include GazelelHost, GazelleSurf, Cityhood and Choiceville.


Gazellesurf History  One account at a time... since 2001.


The company was founded around May 2001.  Service, Freedom and Flexibility for every client. The industry has come a long way since then, and manual process of entering customer requests and setting up hosting accounts was eventually replaced by full or partial automation, but the personal touch at GazelleHost remained.


Gazellesurf History  2004 - Shared co-located data centre


A small commercial-grade data centre was located in the Midwest of United States. We started implementing early cloud-like solutions and document management automation platforms. The company based on LAMP setup started offering automated scripts and templates. One of the areas of focus became co-location and trying to address the issue of database latency.



Gazellesurf History  2008 to 2010 - We're expanding


Operation and customer base expanded organically over the years.  New automation software allowed for faster account setup, instant domain registration, more flexibility for the client through cPanel control. Windows hosting became available creating a new platform choice for clients and partners.

GazelleHost office opened in Melbourne, Australia. We also got a website face-lift and new logo.

 GazelleHost clients accounts are being hosted in tier-1 Data Centres. The Data Centre is being protected by UPS's and diesel generators. We use a Cisco Powered Network which is built on hardened routers and regularly audited by Cisco.


Fast, Secure & Cost Effective

All our client’s accounts are hosted on state-of-the-art-facility. We believe in the power of simplicity, and so keep our hosting services that way. Our servers run on Windows and Linux which are fast and reliable. Their high performance and reliability makes transitioning between VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Servers smooth. 

Enterprise Grade Hardware

It would be possible for us to cut the infrastructure cost by half or more.The marketplace is wide-open and many companies do that. Unfortunately this would most definitely increase server crashes and downtime and this is not the experience we wish for you to have with us.

We use top of the line servers from Dell, name-brand, carrier grade hardware that complements the servers such as routers from Brocade and Cisco.
