About MidAmerica Web Solutions

We’ve been helping businesses grow online for over 20 years


Mid America Web opened its doors to the world in 1997. Originally located in O’Fallon, Illinois – Mid America Web was one of the first established web design and development firms in the St. Louis Metro East Area. Since then, Mid America Web has been providing a wide variety of web based business solutions and services to Southern Illinois and the St. Louis Metro Area for 25 years.

In the beginning, the focus was on building informational websites for small business, not-for-profit and personal users. Over time, Mid America Web has extended their reach across nearby cities and villages and expanded their repertoire to include local communities, chambers of commerce, government municipalities, schools, and e-commerce websites.

In November 2009, CompuType IT Solutions of Belleville, Illinois acquired Mid America Web and its employees. The company recognized Mid America’s brand-strength and made a conscious decision to keep the web department name as is. Together, both companies have created a united force – now with the ability to create websites for customers and solve their computer and IT needs at the same time.

As of today, Mid America Web has created and developed hundreds of websites. We pride ourselves on creating unique, custom designed sites with user-friendly platforms paired with strategic web marketing. We strive at making our websites successful for our clients and the needs of their customers
