Who Is Brittbot?

Back in 2017 I worked at a startup doing a combination of things, which is pretty normal for a small startup company. There was probably five or six people working there when I joined. My job was to provide tech support for our customers, perform various WordPress tasks like creating websites, applying customer updates, running updates, things like that. At one point I started writing documentation for us employees to use and for our customers because there was none.

Whenever I got a task I started right one it and can complete it quickly if given uninterrupted time. That’s just who I am. I did that one day and surprised one of my coworkers (in a good way) who said that I was like a robot. Another coworker chimed in and called me “Brittbot.” Instantly, the nickname stuck.

Then one day after after work, I got the bright idea to buy brittbot as a domain name. I’m wasn’t sure what I was going to use it for but domain names are cheap so it didn’t matter. I went to my favorite domain registrar, Namecheap, discovered brittbot.com was available, and bought it.

So who is Brittbot? My name is Brittany Gates and I’m a writer, tech pro, and entrepreneur. If you would like to learn more about me please visit my personal website here which will provide more information.

Customer: Why did you tell me my website suffered downtime?
Me: You purchases a VPS. Monitoring your website is your responsibility. We only monitor if the infrastructure is working properly.

To make matters worse the customer has an uptime monitor.

I had reservations about becoming a web host reseller and help people build their websites.

After working at a web hosting company I definitely don’t want to build or maintain websites for customers.

New on my blog is my review of EasyWP: The Managed WordPress service sold by Namecheap.

How’s the performance? Is it good to host all types of WP sites? How long have I used it? I answer those questions here: https://brittbot.com/my-review-of-easywp/

Everyone, please create strong passwords. And don’t use the same password for every website. Finally, dont share passwords over email.
