I hope this finds you coming off an excellent first month of 2019!
Last night, many of us watched the Superbowl, and for us here at NameHero, we were a bit disappointed our local KC Chiefs team didn't make it!
Anyways, I still watched it, mainly for the commercials. Crazy to think companies spent upwards of $5MM for a 30 second spot. I remember several years back when GoDaddy was just getting started they put their brand out there for the first time in a Superbowl commercial.
I wonder what that looks like for a web hosting company! I couldn't ever see us doing that; but based on GoDaddy's growth, something certainly stuck!
With all that said, we had a big first month of the year with a lot of exciting announcements:
99.9% Uptime For 2018
To start off 2019, we published our annual uptime reports for 2018.
I'm very proud to announce that we achieved an average of 99.9% uptime across our ENTIRE network.
It's important to note this isn't "network uptime" as some other web hosts often promote. This is true server uptime (meaning actual websites were online 99.9% of the time for the entire year).
We use a third-party, Pingdom, to provide these results so they're 100% unbiased.
NameHero 2018 Awards
2018 was a very fulfilling year for all of us here at NameHero!
As announced last month, we've officially crossed over 1,000+ reviews on both the ShopperApproved and SiteJabber platforms.
I wanted to personally send a note to all of customers and send my extended thanks and gratitude.
Unlike many other companies in our industry, we're 100% privately owned and our ONLY investors are our customers. You all are the reason we're here!
So for everyone that have left us positive reviews, we certainly appreciate it, and will continue to do everything in our power to ensure you have a great experience working with us!
In addition, NameHero was also awarded the Developers' Choice Award by HostingAdvice.com.
Along with this award, I had the opportunity to sit down and do an interview with them to discuss our goals and culture at NameHero along with what the future holds for us.
