We have a range of web services and support options which we provide to our customers, which includes the following:
Domain Name Registration
Domain Name Registration - Business can barely be competitive in today's digital age if they do not have a web presence. We have seen many prospected clients of businesses, especially from the younger generation (the so called milleniums) going to a company's web site before engaging with them. Not only show case a web presence your company but also gives an idea to prospecting clients of the products and service offering. We have seen many "word-of-mouth" examples on Facebook and Twitter which can affect an organisations' reputation.
We will assist our customers to register their company's domain name to start their marketing strategy on the web and social media.
Email Setup and Support
Email Setup - Many organisations often only register a domain name to be able to utilise personalised emails. And despite the easy and relative inexpensive registration of a domain name, many small and medium businesses still opt to use a Gmail email account. It is our experience that prospective clients don't take a business serious if it still uses a Gmail account. We therefore strongly advise on registering a domain name for our customers.
When our customers register a domain name through us, we will assist them in setting up their mailboxes and desktop application to download their emails.
Hosting - We partnered with an excellent web hosting partner to provide our customers with a secure and always available hosting solution at a very competitive price. Some organisations opt to host their own website. It is our experience that, although it gives an organisation control over their hosting and web site, this option has mane caveats; for example, the outlay cost is more expensive as an organisations must provide the infrastructure and security to prevent hacking. Furthermore, the cost of providing backup and ????? to ensure your content availability can be a nightmare, not to even mention power outages or load shedding.
We therefore recommend using a third party hosting solution to minimise the cost and risk of hosting a web site by our customers. In order to host, our customers will have to invest in high bandwidth network equipment, ensure that the web site is 24/7 available and must invest in expensive firewall and security applications and infrastructure to prevent intrusion and hacking. We currently host approximately 20 customers' domains, mailboxes and web sites. Call us or fill out this form for more information of our services in this regard.
Web Site Design
Web Design - After registering a domain name (www.mycompany.co.za), we will engage our customers to build a web site using either Joomla or joomlaWordpress Content Management Systems (CMS). The advantages of using a CMS is that our customers can update their sites more frequently without having to employ a web developer or being dependent on a web developer to update the web site. Customers have the need to update their website on a regular basis with news flashes, specials and product updates to name a few. With CMS, this can be done quick and Wordpresseasy.
