What Owen does at WebBox?
Owen is responsible for our server solutions, including the provision and maintenance of dedicated servers, the management of virtual machines, and liaising with our developers to keep everything running seamlessly. Owen became hooked on computers at an early age when he was given a vintage Amstrad PC with MS-DOS and GEM. From there he taught himself BASIC programming, HTML and web development along with system administration.
Running a popular online forum led to an interest in server management and before long he launched a small business selling web hosting while studying for a degree in Computer Science at St. Andrew’s University.

I’m a keen traveller and estimate I’ve spent a full month of my life on aeroplanes, with many more destinations still on the wish list!
