About Technology

Service 100 Every web hosting plan comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, and is backed by a 99.9% uptime guarantee

 Gazelle.Host clients accounts are being hosted in a 50,000 square foot Data Centre. The Data Centre is being protected by UPS's and diesel generators. We use a Cisco Powered Network which is built on hardened routers and regularly audited by Cisco.


Fast, Secure & Cost Effective

GazelleHost clients accounts are being hosted in a state-of-the-art facility.  We deliver great web hosting by keeping things simple. Our data centers use high-performance servers on an enterprise-class version of Linux or Windows. You get a super-fast and stable hosting platform. High-performance hardware with reliable software allows for seamless transitioning between Hosting, VPS and Dedicated Servers.


Enterprise Grade Hardware

It would be possible for us to cut the infrastructure cost by half or more.The marketplace is wide-open and many companies do that. Unfortunately this would most definitely increase server crashes and downtime and this is not the experience we wish for you to have with us.

We use top of the line servers from Dell, name-brand, carrier grade hardware that complements the servers such as routers from Brocade and Cisco.

About Intro

PS Ten Years

GazelleHost has grown from a single desktop server serving a handful of client's accounts to a fast growing provider of shared, VPS and dedicated web hosting as well as Domain Name Registration and Management and Comprehensive Marketing and Design Services. We built our brands slowly and organically to always under-promise and over-deliver. Gazelle Brands include GazelelHost, GazelleSurf, Cityhood and Choiceville.


Gazellesurf History  One account at a time... since 2001.

Rob Maroszek Datacenter

The company was founded around May 2001 by Rob Maroszek.  Service, Freedom and Flexibility for every client. The industry has come a long way since then, and manual process of entering customer requests and setting up hosting accounts was eventually replaced by full or partial automation, but the personal touch at GazelleHost remained.


Gazellesurf History  2004 - Shared co-located data centre


A small commercial-grade data centre was located in the Midwest as well as a secondary one in Germany. We started implementing early cloud-like solutions and document management automation platforms. The company based on LAMP setup started offering automated scripts and templates. One of the areas of focus became co-location and trying to address the issue of database latency.



Gazellesurf History  2008 to 2010 - We're expanding


Operation and customer base expanded organically over the years.  New automation software allowed for faster account setup, instant domain registration, more flexibility for the client through cPanel control. Windows hosting became available creating a new platform choice for clients and partners.

GazelleHost office opened in Melbourne, Australia. We also got a website face-lift and new logo.



PS Ten Years

Gazellesurf History  2011 - Anniversary


The company celebrates its 10th year. To our surprise, neither Microsoft nor any other Fortune 500 company sent us a congratulatory card. To this day we believe they are still in the mail.



Gazellesurf History  2014 - The Year of Platform Partnerships


Our company continued forming strategic partnerships with IT vendors and Service Providers. Read more (Partnership Announcement).

Gazellesurf History  2015 - The Year of Security.


The focus of 2015 was platform stability, security and user safety. We invested in more robust security measures, fierwalls, anti-malware and anti-spam methodologies.



Gazellesurf History  2016 - The Year of Something New.


We cannot reveal more at this point, but we have something very exciting planned for this year.


"...We have been with various web hosting accounts throughout the years and I don’t think I would ever be writing reviews for any,
but we are truly happy with Gazelle Host. It’s been a good and we can recommend them.
If you are using Wordpress or similar CMS the hosting works fast and without any issues.
I only wish they offered more SEO products, at the time we signed up they were not so we signed up with another service
for online marketing."

Joanne Stubbs

"Had to contact (...) support twice while designing our website, on both occasions I was impressed.
The issues which seemed impossible to me, were quickly fixed, nice one! Our audience is mainly in Europe,
the servers are faster than other hosts. 5 stars!"


Marco Pezzopane

"Our website was hacked last year and didn't know what to do to resolve this.
Thanks to speedy Gazelle support we found out is that our Joomla was outdated and someone used our password.
Luckily their tech support helped out right away and since then we signed up for SiteLock. As a business, if there is anything you would expect
from an IT company is just that – the ability to help in situation like these, right?"


Ella Burkett
Web Designer

"Being a website admin, I've worked with a few webhosts, Gazelle Host is not the largest, not the cheapest (this would not be a genuine comment).
However it is down to earth, when I can pick up the phone and talk to Rob or other Geeks and get things done.
Right now, I don’t even have to worry about client’s accounts, all is working well and we are doing regular backups."


Peter Chen

"Just works! (...) it took us forever to find a web host – there are just so many out there, is that really necessary?
How do you tell the difference, it is almost nauseating, I just need to get back to work.
This one was referred by one of our clients, and it just worked, that’s it."


Chris Kennedy
Cyqlone Sports

" What Customer Service should be.
We have worked with two different hosts prior to opening our account and can say without reservation that Gazelle has the best customer support I experienced.
It is responsive, not geeky and professional. I would recommend Gazellehost to anyone.
Notable features: uptime, speed, functions (office emails)..."


Arnita Corbet
Personal User

"It’s like with any small business – you want to make sure they actually WILL be in business for years to come. (...)
I liked the fact that the company history was explained and they have been around since the early days and are not going anywhere.
That’s all I really care about."


"Have been with since 2012, running our ecommerce site. The site was designed by them too.
So for about 3 years we made over 200k in sales. This didn’t happen right away but eventually we realized how amazing ecommerce can be.
If you don’t sell your products or services online , you should consider it. Initial learning curve is steep, but once you get going it just works."
