PS Ten YearsOur Story From PC to Data Centre

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.

Rob Maroszek Datacenter

The company was founded around May 2001 by Rob Maroszek.  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 as well as a secondary one in Germany. 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.

We cannot reveal more at this point, but we have something very exciting planned for this year.


Hosting User Testimonials & Reviews

  • Joanne Stubbs Gazellehost Review"We have been with various web hosting accounts throughout the years and I don’t think I would ever be writing reviews for any, but we are truly happy with Gazelle Host. It’s been a good and we can recommend them. If you are using Wordpress or similar CMS the hosting works fast and without any issues. I only wish they offered more SEO products, at the time we signed up they were not so we signed up with another service for online marketing."
