About Triad Hosting

Triad Hosting is a web solutions company located in Summerfield, North Carolina. Our core competencies include web design, hosting, website maintenance, and web consulting for small and mid-sized businesses. We have the technology, skills and experience to meet our client’s diverse web-based business requirements. We build… WEB SOLUTIONS THAT WORK.

It’s our passion to help you grow your business by creating a quality website. We have the experience and the expertise to handle projects both large and small. Having a website does not mean you need a degree in IT, especially if something goes wrong. Let the experts at Triad Hosting find a solution for you!


In 1999, we started out as Mike’s Web Design. As business grew, our name changed to Triad Hosting, Inc (THI). From the beginning, THI has always focused on providing custom-built websites, programming custom code ourselves.

THI used a third party hosting vendor at first, but as sales grew, this put a strain on the vendor we used. Unresolved technical issues and lack of fast response time made it an easy choice to look for another hosting solution, which we decided to do ourselves. In 2006, we purchased routers, switches and servers and brought the entire network “in house” – inside a world-class, local data center. This decision led to customer satisfaction, not to mention greater network reliability. It also created with new services, including "Data Backup Solutions". 

In 2016, we moved our in-house servers to “the cloud”, by partnering with a major cloud service vendor. This has greatly increased our capacity, both on the technical side and on the customer service side. This move has given us much more flexibility to respond to our clients’ ever-changing business requirements.


Today we continue to stand by our goal of helping others grow their business by designing and hosting quality websites. Our team reflects our business model: to stay small but flexible, technical but personable, and focusing on quality over quantity. Over the years we have designed and hosted numerous websites, ranging from large community colleges to furniture manufacturers to small local businesses.
