Selectel is owned by 39-year-old entrepreneur Lev Leviev, who has Russian and Israeli passports. In 2006, together with Pavel Durov and Vyacheslav Mirilashvili, he founded the social network VKontakte, later renamed VK. It has been blocked on the territory of Ukraine since 2017.

Leviev created Selectel in 2007 to meet the technical needs of the VKontakte social network. As of October 2023, VKontakte is still a client of Selectel.
