Extreme Web Technologies was formed by Akberali Sumar (20) and Mohsin Sumar (17) – two brothers who dreamt to someday be the Number 1 Web Host in Tanzania. They understood the need to introduce exceptional & quality web services including domain name & web hosting services to connect local businesses in Tanzania to the world. Along with quality web services, Akberali & Mohsin were also interested in introducing and staying ahead in best practices in web design, web development and online marketing in Tanzania.
Extreme Web Technologies launched its very own search engine and business directory called Search Tanzania. Search Tanzania was amongst the first online marketing services offered by Extreme Web Technologies.
Later that year, Extreme Web Technologies introduced web SMS (short message service) solution called Extreme Web SMS. This solution service was integrated on clients’ websites as an added on service to act as instant notification via SMS on events such as new sign ups or enquiry.
Extreme Web Technologies moved to its first offices located in the heart of Dar es Salaam city centre, on the 5th floor of Osman Towers (opposite Elia Complex) on Zanaki Street.
Later that year, Extreme Web Technologies achieved its dream title – Tanzania’s # 1 Web Host – after serving over 160 top level domain names with just over 12% market share in Tanzania's Web Hosting Industry.
Extreme Web Technologies introduced one of its flagship services called Extreme Mailing List as part of its strategy to introduce online marketing solutions. This solution is being used by businesses to market their offerings to their customers for better business retention.
That same year, SimbaHost, another web hosting business in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania could not keep up with its company growth and partnered with Extreme Web Technologies to provide superior customer services. Together, they now hold over 30% market share in Tanzania’s Web Hosting Industry.
Extreme Web Technologies grew from a two man company to a team that comprises of graphic designers, web designers and web programmers along with sales, marketing, operations & support personnel.
As part of our long term strategy, we transitioned all SimbaHost customers to Extreme Web Technologies to maintain one brand name.
The management team, after looking back over the years, decided to pivot Extreme Web Technologies to focus only on domain registration, web hosting, reseller hosting and related products.
The other products were taken over by our sister company, Rahisisha Solutions Ltd.
We turned 10, and stay true to our original mission statement: "To be Tanzania's #1 web host and provide exceptional 24/7 top notch quality web hosting with our dedicated customer happiness team."
