New Year – New News!

So starting off this update with a quick note — tonight Shepherd will be undergoing some maintenance, the data center is going to be re-locating data to some new hardware, total downtime at worst should be maybe 30 minutes, but working on it in early morning hours to try and avoid disruption to businesses and normal flow of visitors best we can! Keep an eye on Twitter/Facebook/Customer Zone for any changes/modifications to the plan, but as soon as data is swapped should be fairly quick.

// End Quick Note

Big Happy New Year! To all of you! Was a rocky December and January but things are smoothing out, it’s set the website and new support area time-tables back a bit but nothing I can’t get caught up with sooner than later I hope but my priority at the moment is getting everything stabilized not new sales! So I do hope to get back on track soon but you guys come first!

Plans for this new year are still a re-design of the site as you can see some new digs here at the blog, might be a preview of things to come 🙂 but other things this year include but not limited to:

  • Advanced HTML Editor
  • Improved Support Area and Support Options
  • Deals on Software for managing your website
  • Projecting 2 new servers this year!
  • New Products for Churches
  • …. and much more!

That’s really just a teaser, some I am trying to move forward with and get online soon, but stability has been my biggest concern and my foremost commitment to customers, I want customers to be excited and confident in what FlockHosting can do, granted there’s been a good track record over the years, but a few bad spots here and there as of late may not put a bad taste in your mouth (and thank you for your patience with all of it) but for me I want to strive to do better, and provide all of you with the best service I can provide!

So keep me in your prayers, doing to be some long months, busy nights, and lots of top ramen 🙂 but 2011 is going to be a great year! Already planning Customer Appreciate Month! Also some deals in the pipeline coming which may be a plus to share with a friend or two! So stay tuned, prayers are appreciated! And more very soon!

Year End Review + 2011

Year in Review

So a year in review – short and sweet – I think I woke up after a break, FlockHosting is coming up on it’s 10 year anniversary in 2012 – as a one man show it has been quite the journey but I think I coasted and napped a little for a year or two in there really just trying to survive and keep my sanity 😉 but this year things have been moving!

With a website rebuild brought some new pricing options which really sort of flopped with everyone except churches, which was a blessing to me to offer a set of great deals to Churches out there, but I am going to kick that up a notch with the rebuild going on now, I want to continue to bless Churches, offer them more! (more on this in the 2011 section) – but the same for folks just wanting to have a site, more resources, affordable prices, and steady flow of deals!

New Backend Software – things on the cPanel interface have been improving both in speed, functions and features – this year has seen some great improvements to the backend, speed has improved, but also adding in Installatron and Softalicious – both offering some great auto-install scripts to get your website up and online.

Customer Appreciation Month – this was another big blast for me, getting to really bless those who have really blessed the heck out of me over the years, some of these folks have been with me since the first year, but each customer is a blessing and it was great to give out some great upgrades, still rolling them out – but looking forward and actually already planning next year!

Lots of little things in the background, some things just this past week like a mobile app designed for the billing system which actually lets me deal with orders, tickets, etc. all from my phone! So I can respond to your tickets, process new orders and deal with some issues on the road! And some new things in the works for….
