Hosting heavyweight iomart sponsors Joomla! World Conference

Hosting heavyweight iomart sponsors Joomla! World Conference

We’re delighted to welcome iomart as a proud first-time sponsor for this year’s Joomla! World Conference.

If you don’t already know iomart, you will do very soon. They have spent almost two decades creating a managed hosting and cloud services company that has helped thousands of online businesses to thrive and grow.

iomart definitely knows us, having hosted Joomla! sites for customers since that first release back in September 2005. With full management, Joomla developers can expect to benefit from reliability, performance and security backed by iomart’s passionate support teams.

However iomart also does more. They really get under the hood of the application and learn how to improve the server stack to suit the CMS. Their research and development teams are constantly working to performance-test sites under traffic. With Litespeed web server engine and associated caching plugins for Joomla, iomart guarantees the fastest possible page speeds for your websites.

How we all store and protect customer data has become more important than ever, and with the advent of the GDPR data protection requirements, iomart’s services are already fully compliant with this EU regulation, so you can rest easy.

iomart is listed on the London Stock Exchange. It owns eight data centres in the UK – all fully ISO accredited - and can also offer geographically diverse solutions across the globe for all customers, as well as fully managed AWS and Azure hosting. iomart continues to lead the way as the UK’s no.1 managed hosting provider.

If you’re wondering about the name, well iomart was founded in Scotland and its name is a derivation of the Scots Gaelic word for “enterprise”, which we feel perfectly describes their company focus. They look after businesses of all shapes and sizes, and their success comes from enabling customers to grow. They love nothing more than seeing a fledgling online business thrive to become a much bigger enterprise supported by their fully managed services which accompany every hosting plan.

And they’re also not bad at another type of hosting – dinner table hosting! They’re sponsoring our dinner at Ristorante ilFungo at the end of the conference tonight and are looking forward to meeting you for a great Friday evening tasting the best food Rome has to offer!
