As of Today, March 18th, 2021, we have a new name and a new website. Although there is a lot of work to still be done, we are happy to announce our new name, GopherHost.
Since we started counting, there have been over 215 messages we have received telling us that Gofer is spelled wrong. It was so prevalent that we actually created a FAQ explaining why we chose that name:
“Gofer is not named after the animal pocket gopher, or more commonly known just as gopher, but named after the slang term gofer. Gofer meaning someone that runs errands for you.”
But the real truth is that we were unable to acquire the domain name gopherhost.com and gofer.host was available. We didn’t lie, but just made it the new truth (does that even make any sense?). But since the acquisition of GopherHost.com, we have rebranded and launched a new website.
GopherHost is even more committed to creating a simple, high performance website hosting experience at an affordable price. We are working on a whole series of tutorials for the non-technical person running a small business to get an incredible online experience for their business or brand.
So if you go to gofer.host, it will redirect to GopherHost.com. Please update your bookmarks and all email addresses are the same but with the @gopherhost.com domain. We will still receive email at the old domain for a while but we will remind you to update as necessary.
