Let me tell you something about websites: they only truly exist if you visit them. They are very existentialist that way. And once you get there, once you’ve participated in the shared experience of our Razorfrog servers loading a website, and your human brain and eyes undertaking their perception, we want to make sure that whole thing was worth it, always, for any business that wants to exist in the infinite, unknowable web space.Read More
Over the years we’ve used dozens of domain registrars and webhosts. We’ve had our favorites, become affiliates and referral partners for a handful, recommended them to scores of clients, and even written similar blog posts about them.

A new year. It’s like a freshly paved road leading to a promised land, 365 (well, minus 21) days that could all point to a brighter tomorrow.

In our fast paced world, speed matters. It’s become so imperative to online commerce that, as of July 2018, Google has included page speed as a primary ranking factor in mobile search. This was the first time since 2010 that mobile search was given higher priority than desktop search for SERPs (search engine results pages).
