CloudFest 2021 In Review

CloudFest is an international Cloud Computing and Webhosting event drawing thousands of attendees from more than 70 countries.

What the duck? A/B Testing at #cPConf 2017

You know that feeling of relief you get when you finish a big marketing project? You did everything right, the bosses seem satisfied, and you feel like you can kick back and relax. I remember that feeling, as it lulled me into a false sense of security. Everything seemed great, I had sorted out all of our problems, and everyone treated me like I was the company rock star. Until six months later… The honeymoon …

Among those at the helm of the hosting movement were John and Ethan, founders of Platinum …
