Ubuntu Online - Our Story
Once upon a time in web design land ... No seriously, Once upon a time. Ubuntu Online started out in 2000 purely as a hobby and the love of web design. Pretty soon the referrals streamed in and everyone wanted a website. Fairies, wizards, kings, pixies, pretty much every one in web design land wanted us to design their website.
By 2002 Ubuntu Hosting was born because quite a few clients had been referred to us for more than just web design. This was just the start, we just got more new clients and referrals without us actually doing anything.
From day one, we’ve always put our clients first. We are not in business just for the money but for the passion, for what we love to do. There’s a quote that says “Find the job you love and you will never have to work another day” This together with our values and principles has made us successful.
"Give every man more in use value than you take from him in cash value; then you are adding to the life of the world by every business transaction" - Wallace D Wattles
Nelson Mandela explained UBUNTU as: A traveller through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food, entertain him. That is one aspect of Ubuntu, but it will have various aspects. Ubuntu does not mean that people should not enrich themselves. The question therefore is: Are you going to do so in order to enable the community around you to be able to improve?
Today we still design websites, we also host them, do search engine optimization, logo design, social media marketing and print design. We have learned and grown a lot since 2002. We still remain one of only a few companies that can provide truly professional service at affordable prices. Something we are very proud of.
We have also not forgotten where we came from and how we got here. It is thanks to our loyal clients that showed so much trust in us. We are grateful for all our clients and we still treat each client as our only client. We will never get too big for our clients.
Oh yes, this is far from the end for us. This is only the beginning! If you'd like to know more about our services and how we can help you, please give us a call on +27 (0)83 249 0442 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org We'd love to hear from you.
