How did you get started in the web hosting field?
It was a potent combination of curiosity and necessity. Many years ago a friend, and business owner with old-school values and processes, brought up the need to bring their business into the digital age and begin creating an internet presence by selling her clothing from a website. I had taken a class on basic HTML and one on eCommerce prior to that, which doesn’t really mean anything, but my ego was large enough to convince both of us that I could make that happen. And I did. I began lots of research on web design, eCommerce, website builders, and ultimately web hosting. I launched my first eCommerce site and haven’t looked back since.

How did you get started in the web hosting field?
Actually, I got my start in the business / marketing side of the industry doing SEO / SEM work for an engineering company. This is where I learned the basics about web hosting. My first introduction into hosting not as a consumer was as a tier 1 Support representative for InMotion Hosting about 5 years ago.

How did you get started in the web hosting field?
Surprisingly,  I didn’t go to school to learn about computers or technology. I actually went to school to be a pastor. I had created a few websites and played around with Linux at home, but nothing  on a professional level. InMotion allowed me my first opportunity in the web hosting field. I started out in Tier 1 Technical Support, and quickly moved to Tier 2-C. There I became the Team Lead, and soon moved to the Training Department. Since being hired at InMotion from 2010, I have learned something new every single day; and I love it!

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?
I have always been interested in servers and networking. Working in the computer industry starting at the age of 16 (I got to bypass that teen-age food industry part) I’ve always been able to find my place.  The field is always changing, and you very seldom do the same thing more than one day in a row.  When I learned that servers and networking was where I had the most fun, I explored how I could use both of these and still have fun with what I do everyday.  Web hosting was it!

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.
