core values that set pajunas interactive apart
It's a big world out there, and there's room for all kinds of hosting companies. By our standards, we'll consider ourselves a major success when were hosting about 0.002% of the sites on the internet.
The fact that we don't have to be everything to everyone puts a lot into perspective, and we'd like to share that perspective by way of our core principles.
1: make practical changes
If we had been able to find a web hosting company that matched our management and security ideals in 2001, pajunas interactive would never have existed at all! There were thousands of hosting alternatives out there, but none that offered the collaborative management tools, security policies or honest approach we were looking for. So we formed a new company based on these ideals.
We do things differently, but never at the expense of best practices. Every decision we make is judged by what's best for customers and what fits cleanly with existing tools. We build the best hosting solutions possible with a clear understanding of what already works well and a curiosity for what could be improved
2: raise yourself up by raising up others
Our definition of success does not begin and end with profit and the single best way for us to succeed is to make others successful in a way that makes them want to support us. It is this principle that makes community support a core priority and not an afterthought.
Rather than wasting time and money on expensive ad campaigns, we sponsor technical user groups, provide collaborative office space and free education resources, and promote our services through win-win solutions like the Developer Alliance Program and the Better World Discount.
3: do one thing well
Hosting done right is a fulltime job. By staying small and keeping a dedicated focus on hosting, we can put this concern to rest for other developers. If that gives them more time to do something cool then we have made a tiny but important difference.
Web hosting on open-source technology is our core competency and our passion, and we're not going to lose focus of that goal. You can trust us not to adopt trendy, impractical solutions. You can trust us to run a stable hosting environment without growing too big or promising more than we're capable of.
4: automation does not equal service
Security means staying up-to-date with security updates and monitoring, but it also means paying attention to who has access to your hosting infrastructure. When you deal with pajunas interactive, you're dealing with real people who pay personal attention to each hosted site its impact on others.
We think it would be spooky to host a site somewhere without ever dealing with a human being. More importantly, a hands-off policy creates opportunities for fraud artists to use our hosting environment for wrongdoing. That hurts everyone and we're not going to stand for it!
5: support local efforts
We do everything we can to support local technical and envrionmental groups, but not just for altrusitic reasons: these members of our community are our competitors, collaborators, customers and even potential job candidates.
It is surprising to see the someone ask, "how do I get cheap or free hosting - anywhere in the world?" and later find themselves asking, "I can't seem to find a job in the Twin Cities: why aren't local companies hiring?"
