hoost - web hosting platform

We helped Marlene build a professional site for her personal brand, as well as setting up her social media so she can start interacting with her community.

Key Points

The Background

Grawlabs started offering hosting to our clients when we originally started. It was not ever supposed to become one of our major service offering, but over time we found more and more clients moving their hosting to us. This presented an interesting business opportunity.

During this time we were managing the hosting of our clients as an add-on service, but as the volumes began to grow we needed to relook at how we ran our hosting service.

The Challenge

Our pricing is, and has always been very competitive for hosting solutions (and we intend to keep it that way). With the recent developments in the realm of hosting tools (cPanel getting acquired by the same company who owns Plesk), we had to look at things a little differently. We could either set up shop using cPanel or Plesk, or we could challenge the norm and innovate, presenting our hosting with a unique tool (with the same capabilities as cPanel) that we have control over. Being the type of people who don’t shy away from challenges, we chose the latter.

The Result

The result is awesome (even if we do say so ourselves). Though still being developed with a beta planned soon, the hoost web hosting platform presents a easy and fun, yet powerful and sophisticated set of tools for individuals, resellers, and agencies alike.

We will be running a blog on this project, so be sure to keep an eye out.
