How It All Started

The parent company of XLHost – eNET Inc. – was one of the very first companies devoted to server and web hosting. Involved in providing quality Internet access and hosting services since 1993, eNET steadily grew from a local provider into a regional Internet leader with a presence in several major cities. Once the Internet became more common, the demand for servers and hosts expanded substantially.

The XLHost network is comprised of more than 300Gbps of Internet and peering connectivity spread across 3 states. In addition to the direct connectivity into our state-of-the-art hosting campus in Columbus, we operate network points of presence in Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Washington, D.C. Our network consists of thousands of miles of fiber optic cabling and next-generation equipment.
