Umar Salim

Technology Enthusiast & Student


Who I am

My name is Umar Salim and I currently live and study in the UK. I have been interested in technology and computers from a young age and have been building on that passion in order to make it into a career.

I recently started studying at Brunel University to convert my enthusiasm about technology into a real career path. In the last five years I have been running several projects to supplement my education in this industry. You can find out more about this by visiting the projects section of this website.

This meant offering a normal individual the tools required to start a YouTube styled website.<br \/><br \/>My role was owner\/director which involved keeping the Linux\/cPanel servers up and running at all times as this is crucial for individuals and businesses. HostWoot was up 99% of the time during the time it was open for business.HostWoot was extremely successful with over 500 active accounts at any one given moment in time. HostWoot was receiving over 10,000 unique visitors and over 4 million hits every month. HostWoot provided unbeatable customer service via the use of community forums and several developers offering help to those who needed it. The level of customer service provided shines when looking at reviews which show 5 stars.<br \/><br \/>HostWoot was started in May 2007 and was shut down in November 2013 due to lack of income and the abuse rate due to being a free host.","tags":[],"project_link":"http:\/\/www.hostwoot.com\/","link_label":"HostWoot.com"}
