Allow me to introduce myself

avatarMy name is Tim Owens and I’m the co-founder of Reclaim Hosting and often the person you’ll be interacting with when you run into problems or need a helping hand. It never hurts to put a face to a name and there’s nothing that bugs me more than faceless corporations that treat you like a number and their business like faceless entity. When Jim Groom and I began Reclaim Hosting in 2013 we believed that web hosting didn’t have to be difficult but that the solution wouldn’t be found in technology alone, rather in people helping each other out. This idea of distributed edtech is at the core of our mission and we hear time and again how that personal relationship makes all the difference.

At the end of 2014 I announced on my blog that I’d be going full time with Reclaim Hosting to continue building those relationships and ensuring that Reclaim continues to excel at providing the best support and platform for building on the web. Today is my first day working in this new position. No longer is Reclaim a side project that Jim and I manage alongside full-time positions. Not only do we have a lot of great plans for growing Reclaim and the community that has come to trust us as a leader in hosting, but I have the time, energy, and focus to do that here.

So come say hi, ask questions, get advice. Because you’ll find that no question is too small and when you need help you’ll find it here with a personal touch that has sadly become the exception rather than the rule when it comes to working on the web. It’s great to meet you and I’m excited for 2015 and what we can do here together!
