Gigenet, the parent body of web hosting brands ColoQuest, GigeServers and DDoSProtection.com, is nearing completion of a 17,000 square foot data center near Chicago. In addition to moving the bulk of its existing customer base to the new building, Gigenet also plans to relocate corporate operations.

“Our dedicated hosting and attack mitigation brands have experienced rapid growth for the past several years, and ultimately we have outgrown our old facilities,” said Derek Raines, Gigenet Vice President. “This new facility will secure our ability to both expand and provide a high level of service to our growing client base.”


“With the addition of this new datacenter, Gigenet is in a better position to more directly compete with existing dedicated server providers, such as The Planet, EV1 Servers and Rackspace,” said Ameen Pishdadi, President of Gigenet. “We will compete primarily on service level, cost, capacity, and our ability to provide niche services, such as DDoS mitigation.”
