A great service is more than the effort of one person, it is the combined effort of a great team, who are talented people that not only have a passion for the work they do but a passion to do whatever it takes to deliver above customer expectations, only with that combination can you offer a truly great service.
Who we are and what we stand for...
We are Dribb.com, D.R.I.B.B are the initials of our founders, Daniel, Rachel, Irene, Benny (Richards), Benny (Andrews), Dribb.com was originally founded in December 2005 (so we know our stuff), originally focused on providing basic Web Hosting services directly to locals (based in London, UK).
Dribb.com was later acquired by Atlantis in 2012, it continued to operate without much change.
In January 2015 Dribb.com launched on Facebook & Twitter, the first social outing for the business since it's launch in 2005. In February 2015 a brand new website design was launched combining new services such as SHOUTcast streaming, Web Design & Reseller solutions.
In 2016 we saw several changes including launching a new streaming server (this services our radio streaming customers) we also launched the IceCast streaming option for customers, alongside these changed we also launched a new web server - in partnership with our sister company - that services our web hosting customers.
In March 2017 we dropped support for SHOUTcast V1 on both our normal and reseller services, SHOUTcast V1 has not received updates in over 12 years, it is outdated and full of security flaws. With TuneIn.com and SHOUTcast.com also dropping support for SHOUTcast V1 it makes sense for us to focus our efforts on software that is supported and maintained.
Later in 2017 we
separated our web hosting services from our sister company, moving all our customers to a brand new home, earth.dribb.com became our first stand alone server to cater for our shared web hosting customers, the move was part of a strategic plan to better enable us to cater specifically to our customers needs, allowing us to fully control our server hardware to meet those needs. We also launched a new SHOUTcast & Icecast server, Polaris.dribb.com!
Late 2017 also saw the Client Area - where customers can seek technical support, check account status and pay invoices - be updated and re-branded as "My Dribb" including a domain change to my.dribb.com, this is part of a greater focus on improving our service.
In 2018 SHOUTcast.com, the owners/makers behind the SHOUTcast platform including desktop & server software, decided to create paid plans by removing loved features such as AAC and limiting broadcasting to a max of 128kbps on the new "free" plan, forcing users to pay additional fees to them directly to get back the features they have enjoyed for years, as such Dribb.com offered customers the option to move over to the Icecast service.
Later in 2018, we launched a new data centre, located in Madrid (Spain), it will serve as our European base, launching with Sirius.dribb.com!
Following on from the new data centre launch in Europe, we launched SSL secure radio streams, this enabled customers to access the Centova Cast control panel using the https://centova.dribb.com:2199 address, this not only secured the control panel access but also secured all radio streams and website code widgets.
Below are some key points we would like to make.
