The Internet was my hobby while I was self-employed for 28 years in the construction industry as a painter and carpenter. I became so intrigued by the web, that I quickly gained knowledge with the how to of web design and web hosting. I learned from scratch how to write all the html code to design a website, because back then there were no instant site design softwares available, no html editors other than note pad. What started out as a hobby, quickly grew into a business when people started emailing me for help on the web. Friends told friends, and those friends told other friends. Before I knew it word spread like wildfire that Randy (me) was the go to guy for support on the web. My email box was stuffed with emails from people around the world, asking me questions. I found myself working around the clock to help people. Finally I decided to leave the contracting business to do what I love doing, building websites and web hosting. So in 2000, the turn of the century turned out to be the turn of a new life for me. My company Hosteasy Solutions was born. I had a mission not to be like everyone else on the Web. I didn’t want to just take people’s money. I wanted to truly serve and help people which I believe we are all here to do. I started offering high quality web hosting with great prices, but more importantly great customer support. www.hosteazydomains.com was created to allow people to register their domains with us as well. This long journey and commitment to excellence has allowed me to meet thousands of people on the Internet, everyone from techies to newbies and those in between. My greatest pleasure over the years is helping my clients who e-mail me with simple or high-tech questions from web design to software selections and use. This phase of my life has come to fruition and it is time to close that chapter in my life and my webhosting buisness is now closed down after serving clients for over 25 years online. My Passion for Music I have had my share of health problems over the years and most recently had my left leg amputated because of an aneurysm behind my knee and being that I am 1/4 Blackfoot Indian I have been given the name (Stands with one Leg) by my friends and peers. and now I am retired and settling down with my longtime passion which is creating online magazines to promote Indie Artists from around the world. For anyone interested in reading my story about all my heart attacks and amputation you can read about it here 7 Heart Attacks and Counting …. or not I decided to create several online magazines websites, and social media outlets which introduces well known and upcoming Indie Artists.
