2006 - Moved to Arlington Heights, Illinois

Through their continued success with new and programs, the next step in GigeNET's evolution was its move to the current location in Arlington Heights, Illinois in 2006. At this time, John Lee joined the team and with his knowledge and experience from his time at Level3 he helped solidify the success of GigeNET and its Co-Location business. The Sales Office in Las Vegas was closed and all functions were moved under one roof at the new facility in Arlington Heights.

We are very proud of the well established and successful support department, established by Mr. Armer, which has earned GigeNET an excellent reputation within the industry. Over the years, many positive articles have been written about GigeNET complimenting the outstanding support team.

2004 - DDoS (Proxyshield) expansion

The addition of the DDoS (Proxyshield) service in 2004 continued the expansion of the business advertised under ddosprotection.com. In the same year, the company took on another new venture by adding “high risk servers.” This new product was given the name "Gigeservers."

Christopher Armer partnered up with Ameen Pishdadi and Derek Raines and began to build the support structure while continuing to work in sales bringing on a multitude of new clients. Chris and Derek, working from their Las Vegas location as part of the growing team, were adding additional business and growing revenue through Co-Location, Dedicated Servers and DDoS Protection sales.

2000-2001 - Ecomdevel LLC Partnership

As the next progressive step, Co-Location was added to the company's repertoire in 2000-2001 due to market demand. The organization, now called “Ecomdevel LLC,” was a partnership between Derek Raines and Ameen Pishdadi. With the addition of multiple flagship clients, the companies continued to profit and grow.

GigeNET's history begins in 1997 when Ameen Pishdadi started a small webhosting venture called GlobalWebHost. At the time, this humble business was one of the first Co-Location customers at Level3, 111 North Canal St.
