Recently a client of ours wanted to keep their site hosted on their existing Godaddy shared hosting account.

The rise of HTML5, CSS3, advanced JavaScript and other languages have essentially transformed the way we see the web today, and it has afforded designers, developers and end-users a wealth of new resources that has made the web a playground of creativity.

With the surge of mobile devices and the increase in their processing capability and screen resolution, they became a formidable outlet to display content to a ravenous crowd that would much rather be on their phone/tablet than on a desk somewhere.
