How did you get started in the web hosting field?
I had experience in intranets from my accounting and tax practice. After selling the business, I acquired a job with my family as a webmaster. In that position I started using Joomla! in the Mambo days. I also developed and co-authored some components for that Joomla. Eventually it spawned into a business that provided Joomla support and services. Doing the development work gave me exposure to web hosting which I found to be very exciting.

How did you get started in the web hosting field?
Bills! While I never planned to join the web hosting field, I am quite glad I did. Originally I was just looking for a better opportunity to grow and figured, since I’ve always been the “computer person” in my family, that I ought to give it a shot. Little did I know that the web hosting world was so vast! There is so much involved and it’s an ever evolving environment. Fortunately for me, turned out I’m not that shabby and it’s actually quite the exciting field. I love finally understanding how “the web” works and knowing that I have the power to create a presence online. Now with a couple of clicks and some spare time, I can easily create a website with WordPress and other Content Management Systems. Knowing that I have that ability feels awesome. Plus for bonus points, it is a great way to wow people.
