ServePath has its origins in the success of its co-founders, who originally started the largest profitable Internet service provider on the West Coast—InReach Internet—in 1994. ServePath was started in early 2001 to solve a key critical demand in the marketplace for custom, dedicated server solutions and managed services for businesses of all sizes looking for a powerful internet hosting platform..
