Our Story

Founded in 2000, the Web Shack has been creating custom websites, hosting, and domain names for clients throughout the United States for over eighteen years.

We were online before online was cool.  Before the .com boom, before social media, before many people knew what email was, even before Google! – The Web Shack was designing custom websites and providing hosting and domain names to help small businesses and non-profit organizations establish a web presence.

CONTENT IS KEY

We have been through many changes in technology over the years, and we pride ourselves on learning, growing, and changing with it. But now, it’s not just technology but content that drives success. Visitors to your site are seeking more information, deeper detail, and demonstrated understanding of their needs. Specifically  crafted content, showcasing your expertise, will not only help drive users to your site, but keep them there longer. We at Web Shack are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Dianne Novak. Dianne is an independent contractor who can work directly with you develop key messaging, brand identity, and sales initiatives. Learn more about Dianne’s background in our Team section below.

THE PERSONAL TOUCH

In the fast-paced and ever-changing world of web development, one thing remains consistent – our dedication to CUSTOMER SERVICE.   We understand that creating an internet presence can feel like a daunting and intimidating process.  We are here to be your guide through every step of that process, and to help you and answer questions even after your project is complete.  A web presence should be consistently evolving, and we believe customer support should be just as consistent.

Being a small business ourselves, we are proud to specialize in helping small businesses and non-profit organizations establish their web presence.
THE TEAM
The Web Shack Team truly is a family – literally.  We are a husband-and-wife team and are truly blessed to spend our lives working together and playing together.  We love where we live, work, and play.  We are based in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota – and have a second summer location in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area near Nisswa and Pequot Lakes.  We spend our time enjoying the lakes and woods of this beautiful place we call home.  That love of the outdoors is part of The Web Shack – taking the time to enjoy the beauty around us and making some friends along the way.
