    Support

    Technology that runs servers and web sites is constantly evolving. In addition client browsers used for accessing web sites are updated regularly. So we have created a hassle free service where we are constantly evolving and maintaining the core code powering your web site to support the latest software and technology. We provide this value added service for a small monthly cost so it can be easily factored into ongoing budgets.

    Don't be fooled, a lot of development agencies use a snapshot of their chosen CMS software which incur quite large fees every time a new version needs to be installed and customisations re-applied. If software isn’t regularly maintained it can be prone to security hacks and even break when server updates are applied.

    Our service includes hosting, phone and email user support, security patches, updates to server software, core updates, updates to 3rd party code libraries, plugins, bug fixes and support for new browser versions and standards. For example we have made 285 version updates to the core system over the last 2 years! This happens seamlessly behind the scenes ensuring that sites are running efficiently and securely.

    We feel our unique approach provides the best on-going solution for a client. Put simply, our clients are buying into a service with the benefits of expertise and on-going relationship.

    Security

    Many clients ask about the security aspects to our system, this normally occurs after they have had a previous bad experience with a site being hacked, usually when using Wordpress or Joomla that hasn’t been security hardened or regularly patched.

    We take security seriously and have instigated several methods to ensure we maintain our impressive record of never having our software hacked.

    Firstly our servers use advanced firewalls, intrusion protection and other specific software to block unwanted visitors and attacks.

    Secondly we haven’t skipped corners when building the system and have used consistent robust coding standards with security in mind.

    Thirdly we maintain our servers and code base to ensure latest security threats and exploits in server software are covered. We look after your site as part of our 'peace of mind' monthly support service.
