About Modern Earth

Modern Earth was founded in 1999 by Dan Belhassen. Over the next 10 years, the company quickly became a mainstay among experienced web development firms in Winnipeg. Expanding its service offerings, Modern Earth launched SaaS products such as newsletter management platform GreatBigNews, and later moved into the online learning space.

With the increased presence of the internet as a primary marketing platform, Modern Earth began offering online marketing services such as SEO, online advertising, and content creation services. All along, of course, Modern Earth has provided web hosting services to its clients as well.

2021: The New Modern Earth

Effective June 1, 2021, Modern Earth was acquired by 100% Helpdesk Ltd. Operating as 100% Webhost, Modern Earth’s parent company is a Winnipeg-based web hosting company owned and operated by people with decades of experience in telecommunications network infrastructure, software development, and marketing. This combination brings deeper hosting expertise to Modern Earth clients and expands the range of services available to them in both marketing and development of custom web solutions.

Time for a New Team

I know that Modern Earth will be in excellent hands.
Since 1999, Modern Earth team has helped thousands of businesses gain a robust online presence, and I am very proud of what we have achieved as a scrappy little Manitoba company.  I’d like to thank all the “Earthlings” over the  years for their contribution to our company’s growth and success. It’s now time for a new team to take the reins, and I know that 100% Webhost’s commitment to client care and first-rate work will make the transition easy for our clients. I wish them every success.
