Locaweb

We started our Hosting business in 1998 with a single room, one server and an investment of just R$30000 (thirty thousand reais). Web Hosting has served as a platform to expand our other businesses, create our developers' network and position the "Locaweb" brand as a leader in internet services in Brazil.

An innovative idea in the minds of pionner souls
