18 years ago today on 19 August 1998 our organization begun as a humble project, codenamed "The Sector Zero Project". We offered public FTP file sharing among people who asked for an account as to enable people to share files with one another in a safe environment. Our first "server" was a commodity off the shelf Pentium 2 350 running Windows 98.
Eventually we moved into web hosting and obviously upgraded in hardware later taking the name "Digibase Zero-One" ("Digital Base 01") around 2000-2001 it was a natural progression that we added onto our FTP services for those who requested, during this tenure we progressed into "Digibase Zero", then our current name. Now we've progressed also into an information security organization that helps provide stability and security to those small organizations that are unable to afford a full commercial service in this extremely expensive world. We also gained through our various efforts a high-accuracy time server that is part of the Offical NTP Pool, and operate an IRC server in tandem under our UCSN initiative that we started in 2010.
There's always been a common trend why we have done this: It's always been for the public benefit. We've never sold user or client information off in exchange for our services or adopted invasive, unaccountable advertising. We've never undertaken malicious operations or the like. We're here for our clients, associates (UCSN and otherwise) and our users.
It's staying that way.
Those who have donated to us at some point or another, be it once or many times: We couldn't have done it without you. You have our many thanks.
Let's see if we can make it to 20 and beyond.

We are pleased to be announcing our transition to a new logo that preserves our historical angular style, while bringing a modern, futuristic, looking forward feel. The design is heavily influenced by a chevron arrow style that moves your eyes across the logo in a single sweep, emphasizing efficiency and progession, while maintaining a strong, striking look that can fit any application. The new design emphasizes the "Operations" text as it moves it from the bottom in a small space up to having a greater presence.
The new style has three general forms:
