Welcome to the NullShells Networks Official Blog!

We are excited to announce our newest addition to your blog reading list. In the meantime you may have questions about who we are and what we do; you may be a current customer looking for more information. Either way, keep your eyes peeled, because you will find that we're going to be writing all about ourselves and what we like to do on our servers. We are going to let our community shine, then you may see our network in a new way. Until then you may take my word for it, NullShells Networks rocks!

So what's coming next? Well, our next several posts will probably be tutorials and commentary about some of our more recent updates. Lately we've been doing a lot of work and we haven't had a chance to announce it all. I personally really appreciate all of the guidance, love, and other support that I have received from this community. A lot of changes would not have been implemented without help from the members of our community.

Our community is thriving! We started back in October of 2005 with a very small and restricted invite only community. Then, we offered free shells with compiler and IRC access, along with the ability to host websites. We originally offered our services from a desktop sized tower server in a large closet running on cable internet. Now, we have servers at major data centers in two states and plans to have a network that spans three continents by next year. We've come very far from where we were, but in 2008 we've still held true to offering free shell accounts. We're also quite happy to also be offering a suite of premium shell and web hosting services to anyone in the entire world.

I also want to express my gratitude for all the great colleagues I have met through NullShells Networks, and on our EFnet IRC channel #nullshells. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to befriend so many bright and kind professionals. While you wait for our future posts, feel free to join us on IRC.
