IOFLOOD can be summed up in three sentences:

  • IOFLOOD exists to help entreprenuers start and grow successful small businesses.

  • We do this by using the best tools for the job, by treating people fairly, and by providing high impact help.

  • We just happen to rent servers.

IOFLOOD philosophy

IOFLOOD was founded in 2009 with a simple idea: That entreprenuers should be able to rent servers from people who actually care about them and their data.

Having managed some of the busiest websites on the internet, IOFLOOD's founders knew how frustrating it was to deal with "brick wall" technical support and careless remote hands. It didn't seem unreasonable to expect a host to care as much about our servers as we did.

Unfortunately, most hosting providers either took the "don't care" model of service at one end, or charged an arm and a leg for fully managed support at the other end. We were willing to pay for service from professionals who loved what they did, but we wouldn't shell out big bucks for managed support we didn't need.

Before IOFLOOD, there weren't many options for people like us.

How we got started

The company actually started accidentally. One day, a friend of mine told me "I am out of disk space on my server, but I don't want to ask my host to upgrade it because I'm afraid they'll screw up one of my existing drives. We've had some close calls with them before and we're afraid they'll lose our data. What should I do?"

We weren't a hosting provider yet, but I wanted to help out my friend. I put in the time to figure out what would best meet his needs for storage, bandwidth, and reliability. Although this was second nature to me, I could remember what it was like just starting out like my friend was. Using that experience to help someone else was incredibly rewarding, and I wanted to spend more of my time doing just that.

That was the day that IOFLOOD was born, and it's been an obsession ever since.
