Our vision for Slicie
Through decades of web hosting experience, we've found that web hosting can be trickier than users expect. Often customers believe they understand their usage but wind up wasting a ton of money paying for something they don't need. This isn't an accident, all web hosting providers understand this, and it's how they make a profit. After applying this approach our entire career, we wanted to create a company that approaches things more honestly.
We want web hosting to be truly easy. We know that resources are complicated, and scaling is even harder. We want to take the guesswork and hassle out of web hosting, and we think we've come a long way to accomplishing that so far. Our vision is to continue keeping things simple and never make Slicie into the complicated mess that most providers grow into. We're going to stick to our core belief that hosting should be simple.
Roadmap for the future
First and foremost, our primary ambition is to make sure the experience using Slicie is as smooth as possible. We're going to ensure the most solid possible foundation before adding features. We want our customers to trust our service, and building that trust through reliability is our primary objective.
We want to allow our customers to deploy virtual machines at all major datacenters in the United States. We have many plans to better utilize our anycast network, including allowing you to move virtual machines between datacenters. We plan to ensure we have a strong and scalable presence in the United States before expanding to other regions. Serving the United States is our critical focus for expansion.
Developing easy-to-use features in the edge is a major area we intend to grow into. Most importantly, we want to keep those simple features. Our goal with the edge is to make the server's role simpler, allowing you to avoid maintaining and configuring services server-side. For more custom edge services our customers need, we intend to provide anycast load balancing features you can overlay on your virtual machines.
