Madalina is a writer who loves tech topics and has a personal affinity for all things web hosting. When she tests a service, she likes to investigate every little detail (and inevitably stress over each one). She also likes to hike, read, and crochet. And no, that’s not an old lady’s hobby. She’s originally from Romania, but currently lives in Sweden, where you can usually find her outside, enjoying nature and playing with dogs, her favorite people.
