Who we are and What we do
At Presslabs we believe in having long-term business relationships by keeping our promises honest and realistic.
We’ve got our first hosting customer back in 2009 — pidjin.net — and helped them survive many digg.com and reddit front-pages. Since spike one we loved the thrill to deal with real traffic and online publishers. This is how Presslabs was born and that’s why we innovate for publishers.
We incorporated in 2011 and received an angel investment round of $100,000 to develop our vision into a hosting platform. We are now at version six of our hosting platform and we have a great team to develop it further.
