It Takes Time to Build Great Things.

About Modern Earth

Modern Earth is a team of experienced Internet experts based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Our company was founded here and many of our clients and partners are in Manitoba, but our relationships have grown worldwide.

Modern Earth and our team have been delivering website hosting solutions and website development solutions since 1998. We started building ecommerce sites in 1999.

Fortunately, technologies have changed and the modern tools we use now make us far more efficient than things were in the 20th century. We specialize in WordPress and Woocommerce sites, as well as app development and portal development and customizations, including strong integrations with third-party platforms and APIs.

Modern Earth offers 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.

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. With organic growth and other acquisitions before and since acquiring Modern Earth, 100% Webhost has become the province’s largest web host.

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.
