Becoming FirstLink Technology
First Link Consulting originated in 1994 as a network consulting company, owned and operated by Jeff Nieusma in Boulder, CO. The mission was assisting clients in securing and maintaining their burgeoning TCP/IP network infrastructures. First Link Consulting additionally managed UNIX environments for multiple companies; utilizing the Solaris operating systems.
In 1995, Jeff and Amy Luinstra founded Denver Online to assist the people of the Denver Metro area with localized information about businesses and real estate. In 1996, Denver Online’s mission switched to include providing local IP connectivity and business grade hosting services.
These two companies met through being founding members of the Colorado Internet Cooperative Association and worked together throughout the late 1990’s to deliver best of breed connectivity and hosting solutions to clients worldwide.
In 2000, Denver Online merged with First Link Consulting to form First Link Technology, Inc. We purchased the data center facility in Southeast Denver, CO. This set the path to offer scalable and reliable hosting, co-location and managed services for infrastructure, software and applications for our clients.
