Just over two decades ago the whole world started dreaming! Big dot com dreams. Dot coms were taking the world by storm. It didn’t take long for Kiran Thomman our founder to bite the bug. And so he did and towards the end of 1998 he registered his first domain name Kachavadom.com.
In 1998 internet was still a dial up and only nationally owned VSNL was a provider. Yahoo and not Google was the search engine of choice. Hotmail not Gmail was the go to email id. Mobiles were just wireless phones with range everywhere you go. Broadband never existed. Network Solutions was the only known registrar for domain names. Godaddy was not even registered as a domain name.
In 1999 with the hosting of kachavadom.com with a provider in Bangalore began our accidental foray into hosting when we also hosted speedwings.org then the official site for Speedwings Aviation. Requests came in from near and dear to host their sites too and in no time we were hosting a few dozen sites.
Reliability issues cropped up with our provider. As more sites got hosted the need for reliability of services for our accidental clientele became a concern and the only resolution was to get our own servers. So in 2002 as Eleazar Networks we launched our first dedicated servers in Kerala becoming the first handful of people to do so in the state of Kerala.
We were the first and only company to offer Windows 2000 and Exchange email which was seeing growing demand owing to the launch of ASP by Microsoft. This was followed by many firsts in the industry including hosting the first eCommerce site for the Malayala Manorama group.
A decade later in 2009 MyWeb Hosting was launched to cater to more discerning customers. The ensuing years we grew our portfolio to offer dedicated servers, email platforms and application hosting for close to 1000 websites.
In 2019 Mustard Seed Ventures LLP was formed to incorporate the broader vision of the our founder to accommodate future verticals. As of September 2019 the entire MyWeb Hosting portfolio is managed by Mustard Seed Ventures LLP.
