It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin An opinion piece in this weekend’s Sunday Business Post called for more Irish businesses to make their voices heard when it comes to Irish politics and government. It’s an interesting “call to arms” and prior to reading it I had been mulling over the results of this general election and […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin One of the things that we needed to address for a long time, as I’ve mentioned previously, was our internal communications. The more we’ve worked on this over the last couple of months the more I’ve come to realise how important it really is. If people internally don’t know what’s […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin Earlier this week I was in Stockholm for Nordic Domain Days where I spoke about the challenges and opportunities of marketing .irish. Why’s .irish such an intriguing extension? Well the simple reason is that it “competes” almost directly with the existing country code for Ireland .ie, but has a different […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin This site lives at a .hosting domain name. Not because I didn’t have any suitable .com domain names to use, but because I chose to use an appropriate domain. And by domain I mean the whole thing ie. both sides of the dot. So it made sense, as I pointed […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedinOne of the issues I spoke about in an earlier post was internal communication. It’s something we’ve been discussing this a lot internally and so we’ve started taking tangible actions. I suspect, like many other things, that we’ll iterate quite a bit over the coming weeks and months. The key thing […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin I love my country. I’m proud of it a lot of the time. But when it comes to some of this country’s legislation I feel ashamed. Irish law when it comes to “freedom of speech” is a bit of a joke. (Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer nor am I […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin Hosting providers like us offer a lot of different products and services. Some are popular, some aren’t. Some fill an obvious gap, while others target the “long tail”. The “long tail” is fascinating, but I digress. At the moment we are conducting an in-depth review of how we do things. […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedinIT is boring. Domains aren’t “sexy” or “exciting” and to be frank anyone who gets excited about a server probably needs to get out more. That may seem to be an odd statement coming from me, but it’s not far from the truth. Hosting is an incredibly important service. Screw it […]

It's only fair to share…Facebook0Google+0TwitterLinkedin I had my reasons for launching this site, which I touched on in my first post. But what about the choice of domain?
