Webhosting

It always surprises me who small businesses buy their web & email hosting with.
In the last couple of weeks we have taken on the hosting of several small businesses, mainly because they either can’t get access to the pages to get them to change them, or even just not getting your emails, because they had 1 single email address being forward to their home email address.

It is important to show a business face to customers so your emails should come from your domain name (like limbtec.com) and not from sky.com, of similar, because your emails are being forwarded in. Secondly if you have to have your emails forwarded in then at least make sure you can change this easily should you change your email address.

Likewise with your web pages, how easily can you update them?
They should be easily changed, and to be honest what you want when you get your website designed is to have a Content Management System (CMS) configured, so YOU can change your site.

This is what we have always offered customers, but for the last few months we have had a new service were we will convert your current website design to JOOMLA, we use Joomla as the CMS of Choice. This service cost from just £400, and we will even migrate your current site content into the new template. We can also design a new website template for you for a small additional charge.

All of our web hosting packages comes with POP3 email accounts, so even if you change your ISP your email will continue to work, and there is also free anti-spam on these accounts.

Surely this is how web hosting should be.

PC World Update

Well, after seeking legal advice! I went into the store yesterday and spoke to a Manager, who was really responsive, and should by now have spoken to most members of staff.

I hope this draws a line under the whole episode, and we can move on to it.

I will start to build a new Joomla based site this weekend for a local Cricket Club, so something to look forward too.

Clean that SPAM

Well we have been busy building the website for out anti-spam/anti-virus email solution.
Although you can’t yet sign up on line we have created a website where you can see what it is, and how much it will cost you.

We choose to use a CMS for this site, and thought we would give Joomla a try. Partly because a customer uses it for their website, and partly just to check out how quickly we could build a useful site. It took just a couple of days to get most of the site done, and most of the work was finished within 7 days. All we have to do is to add keywords to the pages. If you want a site which includes management then give it a go. There are many add-ins, and templates, with a lot of them being free.
