20 years of one.com, a timeline

2002 – The founding of b-one.net

The story began in 2002. Back when only one in ten people in the world had access to the internet. There are only a handful of people who believed in the future of the internet. Jacob Jensen and Thomas Frederiksen are among those who believed. So in 2002, they founded b-one.net, a small web hosting startup in Denmark.

9 July 2002 – The first orders

On 9 July 2002, the first customers placed their order. The product? An easy all-in-one web hosting package. We still host the domain name of the second-ever order after 20 years.
