It’s possible you’ve heard of us. We’ve been around for a couple of decades, we’ve won a few awards, and we’ve cultivated strong relationships with a network of more than 6,000 partners along the way.

But we’ve changed a lot since our early days as a web hoster. We’re constantly growing, developing our portfolio and increasing value for our partner network. We also have a brand new look to show off!

So while we’re not always good at talking ourselves up, we think it’s important to reflect on where we’ve been, celebrate how far we’ve come and share where we’re going. We did start out in a basement, after all.

Born before the cloud

Sherweb was founded in 1998 by brothers Peter and Matthew Cassar. It was the early days of the internet, and very few businesses were offering web hosting services at the time. The Cassars saw this as a problem their company could solve. They built their first web server on their family’s home computer, 220x150and Sherweb was born.

Delivering exceptional customer service and technical support in both French and English was a priority for Sherweb from the beginning. Even in the early days, Sherweb’s attentiveness to partner needs was continually identified major differentiator for the company compared with competitors.

Gaining traction, growth and recognition

In 2005 the company inked an agreement to offer Microsoft Hosted Exchange, and Sherweb’s services were expanded to the United States and the rest of Canada soon after. After years of impressive growth, Sherweb launched its official partner program in 2012.

In 2013, the company was named Microsoft World Hosting Partner of the Year, and was also one of the first partners to join the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program when it was launched in 2014. In 2015, Sherweb was one of a select few partners allowed to offer Office 365.

But despite its many achievements, Sherweb has always made its decisions based on what’s best for its partner network.

New look, same commitment

We firmly believe we can never stop learning, improving and searching for better ways to serve our partners. This has been a driving force behind the decision to refresh our brand. Our methods and commitments are the same, but we have a new way of presenting and talking about ourselves that’s better aligned with what we offer our partners. In order to concretely describe this, we’ve organized our mission, vision and mandate to cover four distinct pillars.

  1. Cloud solutions and products
  2. Business strategy
  3. Operational effectiveness
  4. Supportive Expertise

To take in all the glory of our new branding, and for more information about what’s new at Sherweb and our four pillar approach, we invite you to browse our new and improved website. You’re also encouraged to explore partnership opportunities by perusing our infokit. We’d love to help find out what your business can achieve.
