Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence in Web Hosting and the Cloud

EDIS Global has come a long way since its early beginnings as a simple domain registrar. Over the past 25 years, it has evolved into a full-service web hosting and cloud-service VPS platform with a strong emphasis on personalized support.

EDIS Global: A Pioneer in Cloud Services

EDIS Global was established as a sole proprietorship on February 16 1999, starting with just one 1U Supermicro Dual Pentium III 866 MHz server. With a mere 1GB of RAM and two 3.5" 8GB SCA HDDs, the server was responsible for hosting two name servers, Sendmail, Apache, and various mailboxes. Despite its humble beginnings, this machine laid the foundation for the company's future growth and success.

In 2004, we made history by experimenting with User-mode Linux (UML) and becoming one of the first providers to launch commercial virtualization products based on that technology. This bold move opened up entirely new opportunities and attracted international customers for the very first time.

In 2005, however, the experiment had to come to an end because the hardware and User-mode Linux at that time were not yet powerful enough for what the team wanted to accomplish. Undeterred, we started over again in 2010 with virtualization (Linux-VServer, KVM full virtualization and OpenVZ), laying down a path that led straight to success.

There was no way back ...

EDIS Global has grown into a leading VPS player with an extensive network of infrastructure and VPS hosting locations in over 40 countries.
