ESCONDIDO, Calif., Mar. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- Truepath, a leader in the Christian web hosting industry, today announced the commencement of their 10th year in business, which the company will be celebrating throughout 2007.
In February 1997, during the "dot com" explosion, Truepath launched as a software company. Truepath founder and current CEO, Gil Vidals, began the business venture with funding from his father. After developing several Christian software titles for children (published by Parsons Technology), Vidals decided to focus more specifically on the nascent Christian web hosting niche.
"With this venture, I was searching for a business idea that would involve the Internet, and Truepath Christian web hosting as we know it today was born," Vidals said.
Truepath incorporated in December 1997 as a web hosting company. The new company generated many initial business leads by offering free web hosting to Christians around the globe. Truepath quickly flourished and grew to 65,000 free members at one point. Vidals soon fine-tuned the rapid start into a more traditional "paid service" business. With the success and profitability of Truepath, Vidals received some acquisition offers.
"The companies offering to buy me out were well funded start-ups, but eventually they went under," said Vidals. "I worried that would happen to our customers and didn't want the whole enterprise to flounder."
Vidals kept on with the business and has grown it without merging with another company. Today Truepath remains a company of vision, seeking to empower Christian organizations and businesses to take full advantage of the Internet by providing affordable and best-in-class online applications and customer support.
"I believe strongly in our company, products and service," Vidals said. "We provide a vital need in the industry and our customers truly rely on that from us. We're now looking forward to the next 10 years, and beyond."
