We are ServerGrove, The PHP Hosting Company. We don’t take that claim lightly. Apart from creating optimised environments for the thousands of PHP applications and websites we host, we also have a deep understanding of the PHP developers workflow. Our philosophy is simple: what is good for our clients and for the PHP community is good for us. Founded in 2005, we are headquartered in Coral Gables, Florida with datacenters in Europe and the U.S.
How does ServerGrove leverage PHP
Focusing solely on creating the best platform for PHP developers liberated us. We did not have to worry about other languages and it allowed us to concentrate on one thing and learn how to do it better than anyone else. That’s what we did. Everyone at ServerGrove is involved with PHP since our entire platform is built on PHP and Symfony. But what really validated our choice is the receptiveness from the community which we have come to know and love. They never cease to amaze us with their dedication, contributions, and passion. Their latest accomplishment was to help us improve language support for our control panel which now speaks English, French, Portuguese, Italian, Spanish and Dutch!
Why does ServerGrove support our community
One thing many people don’t realise is that an open source language is it’s community. Without the community, the language will cease to exist. If you want to invest in an open source language, then invest in the community.
A while back when we decided what our corporate marketing mantra would be, we decided that we would invest our very limited marketing budget in supporting the community rather than on banner ads and other traditional marketing schemes. It was a decisive moment for the company as it defined our corporate culture. Since then we have supported over 50 conferences worldwide, numerous open source projects and provided free hosting for PHP blogs and educational initiatives.
