Who we are

Get through to real people who talk real sense!

We do not try to be all things to all people! We focus on what we are the best at, which is ‘Joomla Hosting’ - it’s plain and simple!

A better hosting experience

We are a London-based hosting company specialising in Joomla and other free license applications such as WordPress and Linux. We became the first UK limited business to specialise in Joomla related matters when it forked from Mambo in September 2005, making us well credentialed to provide insightful and reliable hosting, design, support, and development solutions.

Our expertise incorporates Ajax, JavaScript, CSS, PHP, HTML, XHTML, XML and SQL. Our directors, Mark Smeed and Paul Franklin, help manage Joomla and contribute to its development. Their profiles can be viewed at “http://extensions.joomla.org/about-jed/about-the-team”.

Mark is the magnificent master machine mender! He has tech powers other mere mortals can only dream of. There hasn't been a single website issue that Mark hasn't conquered.

When he isn't knee deep in program code and servers, Mark enjoys cycling and photography, but not necessarily at the same time!

Paul is our support guru! He has been working with servers for over a decade. If you have a hosting question, Paul will know exactly how to connect you to the solution.

When Paul isn't assisting our lovely Joomla Wired customers he enjoys a good jog in the brisk, cool mornings, with a groovy jam session on his drum kit in the evenings.

Roger is our head honcho over all things support related! If there is a situation going down, you can rely on Roger to see it through to its full resolution.

Roger marvels at the creation of some of the technological inventions that have shaped our recent history; such as the difference engine and the conception of the first computer.

Paul is our savvy support sheriff. Rogue website issues don't last long in the World Wide Wild West with Paul on patrol.

When he's not rounding up rebel code breakers Paul immerses himself in the graphic design universe, to satiate his creative hobbies.

Matt is our speedy support hero! Matt makes it his business to rescue our customer's websites from dastardly problems and devious site vulnerabilities.
