Yesterday the team here enjoyed a great evening of networking at the 2nd annual Toronto WHIR (Web Host Industry Review) industry event that was held at C Lounge.
SevenL was one of the lead sponsors for the event and we even gave away some snazzy shirts promoting our new and very fun, WTF is Hosting microsite, Carey Toane won a prize pack including bottles of wine from one of Niagras’ finest wineries, Angels Gate, and web developer Hamid Mousavian won a round of golf at the home of the 2010 Canadian Open at St Georges Golf and Country Club in July.
Some of our team just kicking back =)
The event was an incredible official kick off to summer, the weather was gorgeous, the venue was excellent and the WHIR’s 10th anniversary cake was delicious. It was great to meet new faces – see old ones as well as to mingle with our suppliers, clients and friends. Though, we were slightly disappointed that none of them ended up in C Lounge’s pool at the end of the night.
WTF Is Hosting T-shirts handed out at the Toronto WHIR Event =)
Liam Eagle over at the WHIR has wrote a short post on their blog promising videos and pictures of the event so be sure to check that out. Our team was simply too busy enjoying ourselves at the event so our pictures didn’t come out as planned
A beautiful day for a great event here in Toronto!
SevenL would of course like to thank our incredible neighbours, the WHIR, for putting on a great event and to that kind woman that handed out our WTFIsHosting.com t-shirts to everyone.
It is a question that is still asked time and time again.
A great hosting company, is the same as any company that is considered “great.” What do those companies have in common?
Customer service is the big ticket when grading the “omfg this service is awesome” of a Company, especially in the overly competitive hosting industry.
Here’s a few questions that you should ask yourself about your current hosting provider:
Does your hosting provider treat you like a human being or a number?
Does your hosting provider charge you obscurely for services that don’t make sense?
Is your hosting provider running out of a one bedroom apartment that constantly has service interruptions? Networks Inc,
Does your hosting provider align with your core brand?
And lastly…Would you call your hosting Company to come and hang out and chill?
And if you simply don’t care about the above, well than suit yourself, but any vendor you work with essentially represents who you are so keep that in mind!
Though admittedly, we’ve been a bit behind on the blogging lately – we wanted to share some exciting news!
