SingleHop, a dedicated web hosting company, is especially popular in countries like Bulgaria and Egypt, where data centers aren’t always stable. But doing work in unstable countries isn’t easy. When the Egyptian riots broke out this spring, SingleHop deferred clients’ payments until they could get back on their feet. “One client that paid $40,000 a month didn’t come back,” Zak Boca remembers, “but overall it was a decision that really helped us strengthen our roots with clients.”
