In the hyper-competitive world of web hosting, companies emerge and are acquired by larger players at a furious pace. It is therefore exemplary to find a hosting provider which has withstood the test of time. 34SP.com is just such a web hosting company. Founded a decade ago by Daniel Foster and Stuart Melling during their days straight out of University, the month of October 2010 will mark the 10th Anniversary of 34SP.com. While the company began its corporate journey with standard website hosting, the firm now offers an array of services including business hosting, vps hosting and dedicated servers.
34SP.com co-founder Stuart Melling reflected back on the 10 year web hosting milestone, ”Wow, 10 years huh, it doesn’t feel anywhere close to that. It seems like only yesterday we were hosting on Cobalt RaQ servers and meeting customers over a pint in the pub to seal sales. I still remember the interview to hire our first support team member. Up until that point it had been myself and Daniel doing everything from installing servers to creating client mailboxes. The interview process was fairly stringent, and basically involved checking that the applicant could make a good cuppa. Once he’d brewed up, he was practically hired. Note to future applicants, this skill still helps. Our team is now fourteen strong, and packed full of great, talented people. We are looking forward to making the next ten years even better than the last.”
To celebrate one decade of web hosting service, 34SP.com will be giving away 10 Apple media products – 2 iPads, 5 iPod Touches, and 3 iPod Nanos. During the past 10 years in business 34SP.com has grown to serve tens of thousands of clients in the U.K. as well as across the globe. As a way of saying ”Thank You!” and giving back during the 10th Anniversary Celebration, 34SP.com will be randomly selecting 10 lucky winners from among all 34SP.com customers of record as of November 1, 2010 to receive an Apple iPad or iPod Touch or iPod Nano absolutely free. Any customer of 34SP.com as of November 1, 2010 is eligible to win – and may be randomly selected.
Fellow co-founder Daniel Foster summed up his thoughts on a decade in business as well, ”When Stu and I started the company, we had no idea what we’d done! Looking back on it, we hit the market with the right message at the right time. It’s great to be able to provide a service that’s appreciated by so many people. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved and am lucky to have had the chance to work alongside some fantastic people. Onwards and upwards!”.
