In 1994, Marc Pope built his first website which went on to win several internet awards including “Yahoo Site of The Day!”. Coming from a graphic design background, Marc took his design and technical skills and translated them to the web. As a child, Marc had a knack for computers and how things worked. By 16, he wrote software and ran a BBS (Bulletin Board System) back in the late 80s on an Apple //e with a Corvus 11MB Hard Drive and 3 AppleCat modems.
Over the years from working at Advertising and Marketing companies, Marc always spent time with computers and the internet. In 2000, Marc moved to Falcon, CO and Falcon Internet was born. The first websites we hosted were hotel websites running on 2 iMac computers on a T1 line! Back then there were not large data centers or anything like “the cloud” that there is today. In 2003, we relocated to North Carolina and started to grow our service offerings.
In 2018, Falcon Internet moved our primary service to a managed, enterprise-class data center facility in Charlotte, NC. Falcon Internet now hosts nearly 1,000 websites for customers all over the US and beyond.

Marc from Falcon Internet always operated in the most professional manner and the quality of the services he offered always have a professional polished look and feel. I would highly recommend Marc to anyone looking to upgrade their business web site or internet application.
Marc knows his stuff. I trust him to manage my sites and keep them up. I highly recommend him and his company!
I have sent several clients to Falcon Internet and they always exceed expectations of myself and the client. When migrations go wrong (and they usually do), they digs into the HTML, PHP, Lasso, etc and either fix it or makes recommendations for researching/fixing. A TOP notch hosting provider, no doubt.
I wanted to take a moment to pass my gratitude to you and the Falcon Internet staff for the unwavering one-on-one customer support I’ve received over the years. … Just about anyone can provide hosting these days, but reliability and assurance of great customer support are where the true value lies!
I’ve worked with Marc from Falcon Internet]for many years and highly recommend him as a programmer, system admin and hosting provider. He has proven himself to be an invaluable member of the community due in part to his broad range of experience and knowledge.
