About Us

Who is GigeNET?

GigeNET got its start in 1997 under the direction of Ameen Pishdadi, as GlobalWebHost. Specializing in web hosting, the company quickly grew to include co-location and DDoS protection, one of the first to do both at Level3.

After a few more years of continued growth and a name change to EComDevel, Llc., a new product was finalized and released, our DDoS Protection Proxyshield™.

In 2006, GigeNET moved to its current location, in Arlington Heights, Illinois, and consolidated its whole business under one roof. GigeNET has continued innovating and releasing new products, while expanding their presence across the Continental United States to Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

More recently, GigeNET has released several new products, including Automated DDoS Protection and One Click Install Applications on the GigeNET Cloud.
