In July 2018 Web Prophets completed the purchase of RedyHost; a web hosting platform that specialises in hosting for Drupal and WordPress websites. RedyHost has been hosted within Web Prophets Data Centre infrastructure for the past 7 years; as such the migration of business services and customer accounts has been a seamless process.
Every year, Web Prophets has a Staff Appreciation activity which includes partners and kids. This year we had a day trip to Fowles Wine in Avenel in the Strathbogie Ranges. The day started off in the mini bus taking us 1.5 hours out of Melbourne. We arrived at Fowles Wine to a delicious morning tea and coffee and then jumped back on the bus for a tour of Fowles vineyard's and production factory.
The Web Prophet's team had a great day celebrating 15 years with family, friends, colleagues and clients.
There was lawn bowls, amazing food, live music, a magician and Mr. Whippy for the kids (which the adults enjoyed too!).
