A new hosting client sent me a screen of their previous host’s server while SSH’d in and running ‘top’.  In a nutshell, running ‘top’ lets you see what is running on the server and what the ‘load’ is.  ‘Load’ is pretty much how hard the server is working.  This looks like an 8 core server […]

Want to know more? | a little about us

ClearDev was created from the start to be an alternative to traditional technology service companies. We took a look around and saw lots of confusing pricing schemes, and not much in the way of customer satisfaction or support. We decided that a clearer, more customer-centric approach was needed. We know how powerful technology can be, and we're working to break down the walls between it and the less technically inclined.

We've grown our company with a dedicated group in the notion that simple, old fashioned service and value still ring true. ClearDev has focused our efforts on delivering technology solutions to the creative set including authors, publishers, artists, galleries, and musicians. We make every effort to make our services easy to own, easy to use and, most importantly, to provide real value. And yes, we like to have fun doing it.

If you'd like a friendly voice to help with your site or select a web hosting plan to meet your specific needs, our sales & service staff is here to help.

We are available to answer any questions that you may have about our services.
