How The Idea Began: We wanted to expand the services offered by our prior existing web development business, but then we saw the potential to change the hosting industry and provide a socially responsible solution by raising awareness and giving back to charities, while also providing the best web hosting services to our customers.

Favorite Thing about the Business: We get to make a difference no matter how small or big it is and we have the power to get millions of people involved.

Worst Thing About the Business: Our business costs limit our ability to donate more in our growth period.

Biggest Challenge: Promoting ourselves in such a saturated market (hosting industry), as well as raising awareness for our cause.
