As 2020 has finally come to an end we thought we should highlight some of the positive things that happened to us over the last twelve months. As well as that, we’d like to take this chance to reflect on the year so we can continue to grow and improve as a company.
There was a total of 4 hardware migrations (for currently active locations) in 2020. Most of our locations started with “Pure” SSD storage so we set the goal to switch over to NVMe instead and we’ve made good progress over the year. Here’s a quick timeline of events:
February 2020 – Los Angeles migration to NVMe/AMD Ryzen
July 2020 – New York migration to NVMe/AMD Ryzen
October 2020 – Amsterdam migration to NVMe/AMD EPYC
December 2020 – Luxembourg migration to NVMe/AMD Ryzen
1 Year Birthday
SmallWeb started as a passion project, a re-entering into the hosting world earlier in 2019. It soon became much more than that and it became more obvious that it was going to grow in to something I wanted to build and work on for a long time. That’s why we incorporated as a Limited Company in England & Wales on the 21st October 2019. We had our 1st official birthday on 21st October 2020 and we’re looking forward to our next one even more than the last!
We reached the amazing goal of 500 registered customers shortly after our 2020 Black Friday event after setting the goal earlier in the year. On top of that, over 400 of those registrations occurred in the last 12 months alone. I’m very grateful to have this opportunity to serve so many customers and I hope we will continue to grow and reach more users over the years.
Our entry level plans were always about saving money without losing quality and after their success we thought “How can we make them better?” – so we rebranded them as “Budget Hosting” plans and carefully refined them, trimming the unnecessary fat off based on data from our existing customers. By doing this we were also able to cut our costs by a significant amount which meant for once we were able to lower our pricing and pass even more savings on to you.
So that was some of the things that SmallWeb did in 2020, but what can we do in 2021? Let us know your ideas and suggestions on Twitter @SmallWebLtd or via our usual contact methods.
