Happy Cog Hosting

03 Feb 2011

To say that I’m chuffed would be understating it, but Hicksdesign is now hosted by Happy Cog Hosting. I’ve only been with them a short time, but they’ve already proved how helpful and reliable they are. The service is second to none!

At $799 a month it isn’t meant to be a hosting service for everyone. This is a “white glove, VIP service” aimed at much much larger companies than I, so it’s all rather like being given keys to a large mansion – I might not use all the rooms, but I’m having a jolly luxurious time living in it all the same. The staff are as helpful, friendly and attentive as you would ever hope for.

Besides, there are large companies hosted there who are making use of all the rooms, like Mailchimp! If you can afford the rent, and are looking for a mansion, I can send an invite your way, so please contact me. Don’t email to tell me how much less Dreamhost is though please ;)

    Inktober day 17 . @hicksmade’s pen led me onto squid and their ink shooting abilities. I also found out that a part of the squids anatomy is called a ‘pen’. #inktober #inktober2018 #ink #leighandjondoinktober

    Inktober Day 11. The shape of @hicksmade’s spoons made me think of the Mandrake - a root that looks like a tiny human. There are lots of legends around it, but this one is based on the Harry Potter interpretation. . #inktober #inktober2018 #leighandjondoinktober #mandrake #harrypotter
