Happy Birthday SoftCom Technology Consulting Inc.

by Stephen Nichols on January 19, 2007

January 2007 marks the tenth anniversary of SoftCom.

The world has changed a great deal since we started. The Dot-com bubble saw the founding (and in many cases, dramatic failure) of numerous new Internet-based companies. The political and economic situation has been marked by increased globalization and the aftermath of the events of September 11th 2001.

Looking back to 1997 according to

  • Bill Clinton was starting his second term as US President.
  • The Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XXXI defeating the New England Patriots, 35-21.
  • Tony Blair becomes Prime Minister of the United Kingdom ending 18 years of conservative rule.
  • The first book in the award winning Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling is published.
  • On January 12, the computer HAL 9000 comes online (in 2001: A Space Odyssey)
  • Microsoft buys a $150 million shares of financially troubled Apple Computer.
  • The domain was registered

SoftCom has also seen some changes over the years.

  • In May 1997 was launched.
  • In June of the same year we offered Microsoft Windows web hosting services.
  • In 2001 we added support for 16 international languages to
  • 2002 saw become the world’s largest Microsoft exclusive hosting company.
  • Later that same year got involved in car racing sponsorship with the Porsche Team at the Le Mans 24 and as the title sponsor of the Mosport & Grand Prix.
  • In 2003 we took two large steps forward by upgrading to Microsoft Server 2003 and moving to a telco-grade Data Center.
  • The following Year we introduced a unique web hosting package; a blended Windows and Linux offering.
  • 2005 was the year of communication and collaboration, seeing the launch of both Exchange email and hosted SharePoint services under
  • Early in 2006 we took web based email to the next level when we launched LIVE. A free email service based on Microsoft Exchange.

Today SoftCom provides valuable, efficient and cost-effective Internet based services to more than 16 million customers with support of 26 languages in 220 countries worldwide.

I can’t wait to see where we will take things in the next ten years!

Happy Birthday !

I was in California on vacation and had thought about bringing along my new laptop. I decided to leave it home on the East Coast. My friends and I had gone to the mall one day. I had just heard of MAIL2WEB so I wanted to check it out. We went to a computer kiosk and I was able to check my emails.

Thank you. I always use MAIL2WEB and I have told my friends about it!

May many more birthdays come your way.

Wow. I have been using mail2web since 1999 and always wondered how you guys could provide the service for free so reliably.. and then the car sponsorships. I always envied you. I never knew you had 16 MILLION customers!

As a real estate broker in over 6 states since then, i continue to use mail2web no matter what the systems guy tells me to use. It’s always different, always a hassle, and mail2web always “simply works”. Whenmy job give sme a laptop I don’t even bother with the installed applications… in the mortgage business I’ll probably be in a new job before tech support answers my support tickets anyway. Mail2web rocks! Happy Birthday!

Thank you for a service which is useful and does what it says it will do. In a world of pervasive low moral values it is refreshing to find a group with apparent simple honesty. Keep it up!
