(Gawkwire) – Nexcess, the leader in Magento, WordPress, and ExpressionEngine hosting, is to be included in the 2013 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing businesses in the United States for the fourth consecutive year. Nexcess is ranked 1636 in the 2013 Inc. 5000, and is 38th in the telecommunications category.
Inc., the popular business magazine and conference organizer, produces an annual list of the best performing privately owned businesses in the nation. Inclusion in the list requires sustained and consistent growth over the four years preceding publication of each list. Given the level of competition found in most industries, a strong showing in the list of America’s top performing businesses is a powerful indication of the long-term health of a company.
Nexcess has grown consistently since its foundation more than a decade ago, expanding from a small garage operation to one of the leading international providers of optimized eCommerce and CMS hosting. Nexcess currently operates out of its own Michigan-based data centers in the US and also offers a full range of premium hosting services in the UK and Australia.
“The fact that Nexcess has shown consistent growth at a level that makes us competitive with the most innovative businesses in the country is a great validation of the huge amount of work we put into providing the most secure, stable, and high performance hosting available,” commented Chris Wells, President and CEO of Nexcess, “Unlike many hosting companies, we invest a substantial amount into research and development, resulting in a hosting platform with world-class performance that is suitable for businesses of all sizes, from SMBs to international corporations.”
Nexcess’ revenue has grown by 239% over the last three years, and the company increased its employee base by 56 to 79 in 2012. The year since the last Inc. 5000 list was released has been one of continued innovation for Nexcess including the implementation of further significant improvements to their Magento eCommerce hosting platform, with new and more powerful Secure Isolated Platform servers and augmented eCommerce cluster packages, the release of the Nexcess-developed Turpentine plugin for Magento, which improves integration between Magento and the very fast caching reverse proxy Varnish, and the expansion of Nexcess optimized eCommerce and WordPress hosting services into Australia.
Nexcess is a Southfield, Michigan-based managed hosting company founded in 2000, with wholly-owned data centers located in Dearborn, Michigan and Southfield, Michigan. Nexcess offers a variety of hosting services ranging from entry-level packages to custom clustered/complex hosting configurations, with an emphasis on mission-critical hosting for high-profile eCommerce web sites.
