About Epicserve

The Name

The name Epicserve is obviously a combination of the words "epic" and "serve". "Epic" symbolizes the kind of websites Epicserve works on as well as symbolizes the kind of work Epicserve does. "Serve" symbolizes how Epicserve likes to work and serve as a part of a team. Even though companies contract Epicserve to work on their website projects, Epicserve's mindset is that they are part of a team, serving together to make epic websites!

The Design

The design for this site was mocked up in Photoshop and then the design was sliced up and then hand crafted and coded into HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Backend / CMS

The backend of this site was developed by Brent using Django/Python. For the CMS/Blog part of the website Brent borrowed and used bits and pieces of code from the Django Basic Apps project.

Hosting

Epicserve is currently hosted on its own VPS hosted by Linode. If you are in need of your own VPS, then we highly recommend Linode.
