In January of 2013, my good friend Dale Sallis and I started a hosting company, Sodium Technologies. Named after the city we live in, Saline, we wanted a way to host websites for friends, family, and local businesses. We host mostly local websites, but we also have a collection of Minecraft, Starbound, and voice servers we maintain. We've now been in business without losing money for a few years, and we continue to grow.
If you know anyone, or a local business, who needs web hosting, let them knopw about Sodium, and leave the impersonal national companies in behind!
