SmallWeb’s 2020 In Review

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.

Server Upgrades

There was a total of 4 hardware migrations 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 – LAX migration to NVMe/AMD Ryzen

July 2020 – NYC migration to NVMe/AMD Ryzen

October 2020 – AMS migration to NVMe/AMD EPYC

December 2020 – LUX 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!

500 Customers

We reached the amazing goal of 500 registered customers shortly after our 2020 Black Friday event. 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.

Budget Rebrand

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 and pass the 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
