How we got our name

TeraHost – the name refers to tera, one million.

Our original logo was designed to pay homage to Cray Computer, the American super-computer manufacturer based in Seattle, USA. We’ve always loved the Cray logo, so we wanted our logo to have a similar look and feel, as well as sharing a slight resemblance to a Cray super computer.

The company was one of the first to break the teraflop barrier (one million calculations per second) in the early 1960’s, becoming one of the most popular tech companies of the 80s and 90s.

The “host” part of our name refers to network hosts – computers and other devices that are connected to a computer network. We live and breathe computers, so wanted a name that reflected both our work and our admiration for the other big names who have inspired us since we were small.
