Abdur Rahman LakhaniMagento Community Manager at Cloudways Published On: Saturday, July 17, 2021 Views 344
The art of life is a constant readjustment to our surroundings.
I am a marketing and technology enthusiast and therefore decided to pursue my career in digital marketing. I have previously worked with many SMB’s and organizations to subsidiaries of big giants like AliBaba. Currently, I am associated with Cloudways as Magento community manager.
Please provide a brief overview of your product/service?

What inspired you to build the above product/ service?
The person behind this product is Mr Aqib Gadit. He, along with other partners, have developed this solution. The product is the reason I joined this company. I always wanted to work on an innovative and automated solution that would make people’s lives easier and help them focus on real objectives. Cloudways does the same by hosting their dreams. And this helps me to meet my career goal because I work on both the technical and marketing sides.
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
The journey so far has been like a roller coaster ride wherein ups and downs have all been part of it. But the most challenging part was the COVID-19 global pandemic, where the whole world was suffering from health and financial problems. The same happened with us, we had to perform our daily operations from home and collaborate through different mediums. But our organization and management supported us with all the necessities and tools to overcome these challenges. And we responded by overachieving our targets.
How did you overcome initial mindset challenges?
This is a solution that was already in demand because cPanel solutions are not considered reliable solutions, and dedicated servers are very complex to manage, so managed cloud hosting solution is a middle approach. We didn’t face that mindset challenge much since we understood the tremendous potential in the technology. Although people hesitated at first, to adopt it since it’s something new, but our free trial and interface did the magic, and people loved it.
