Where does a story begin? Where is it's beginning? Is it a long time ago and is it
definable? I do not know. This story starts somewhere between a lot of different
stories and can be told in the words that follow:
This is a story of three people who never met in person, two of them have spoken
to each other but neither to the third or the third person to them, yet they started
a web business together.
It all began some time ago between Sokule, Twitter, Swom,
Facebook and all other nice social sites when Jawsie, Dave and Oudjoe all tried
their (separate) hands at making money on the internet (as almost all of you do).
At some stage they started "talking" to each other and some ideas were born. The
first successful idea culminated in a name giving event to Aliki's puppy.
an indication that the three of them could work together.
A need was identified and
they decided to start a business for "Affordable Web Hosting" and the wheels were
put in motion. The result of this venture was the creation of Wozahost. Woza is a
Zulu word meaning "come" or "come in". During nights of (email) deliberation, other
ideas in regards to a theme, logo and other needful things were discussed and finally
the image of a lighthouse, showing ships the way, were decided on. A logo "Arrive
Online", glowed like a light-globe above one of the three's head. The symbolic is
that of a lighthouse showing "lost" ships the way to arrive safely in the online
port of the Internet.
As easy as it may sound, so difficult it was to design / create web hosting plans
for Wozahost to offer and they finally agreed on four plans called "Hop, Skip, Jump
and Dash" each with different disks pace and other options. They also worked a "double
discount" into these plans whereby the first years hosting is discounted by almost
25% and when payable yearly in advance, another almost 10% discount kicks in. A money
back on hosting paid in advance is included as standard in the Terms of Conditions.
designing these plans, they realized that there is almost no means to compare different
companies hosting plans with others. The only way to do that would be to weigh the
different options in a plan and compare these "point" with each other - almost just
This prompted the three to ................set forth and sell web hosting!
