How & why we built MiniEmpire:

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to create their own empire, so we pooled all our resources to offer everything you need to get online. We’ll give you clear options for your hosting and design needs with no hidden costs.

MiniEmpire was founded by Jon Barkas in 2005 after selling his previous media company. His aim has always been to help other entrepreneurs realise their goals and build their own Mini Empire. He’s had quite a varied career in tech, having taught A.I. and web development at the University of Izmir, and database development at Newcastle University. He worked on European research projects in satellite transmission protocols while contracted to Sunderland University, and studied towards his PhD at Newcastle. He also developed and implemented Marketing/CRM solutions for Newcastle College, Newcastle University, Sunderland University, Durham University, and Teeside University, as well as for multi-million pound companies such as Spark Response/Primecom.
