Extremely competent with all aspects of web hosting, server administration (Linux) and IT security. I've been in the hosting industry for 7 years, 6 of those founding and running a highly respected UK company exposing me to most control panels, LAMP, monitoring, hardware replacements etc etc. Additionally I have substantial experience in operations management, online marketing, leading customer support and online payments (notably: increasing conversions, simplifying the order process and reducing chargebacks). I can work with you for short or long-term adhoc projects for both startups and larger enterprises for tasks such as website/server migrations without downtime, increasing server security & performance, setup of servers/networks etc and automation/monitoring. I can also give advice on the day-to-day running of IT (specifically eCommerce), assistance combatting chargebacks to reduce the risk of lost processing and help you provide better customer support.
