Do you need premium web hosting ?

Meeting expectation when it comes to UX is an incredibly important and fundamental part of your web armour. UX is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and the web site in this instance. If you don’t get this right then your visitor numbers will dwindle and the chances of success are undermined.

One simple aspect of getting this right is the speed of your site and the load time of pages. Although there are several factors that can affect this performance, the first and most important consideration is the specification of the hosting server and the hosting environment. In order to address this we have invested heaviliy in speccing out and commissioning a new web server that really rocks. Not only is the server superfast but the Internet backbone it sits on is also lightening fast thanks to recent deployment of new fibre equipment.

Good web hosting is important to all organisations. If you run an e-commerce store then this becomes even more important and pretty much mission critical to your business. If the store goes down or is slow to load pages then sure as day turns to night your sales will suffer aswell as your brand image.  So what other factors determine the UX ? theres a great list here if items that are often thought of a critical – but maybe not ?

Beware of Word Document Viruses !

By | Home Main Post, News, Uncategorized | No Comments

For some of us they’re coming in think and fast and can cause real problems. Picking on a format that are frequently exchanged, Word documents have become the carrier of a strain of very destructive viruses that can be time consuming and therefore costly to fix.

Microsfot Word files contain small programs called “macros” which are shortcuts that are customisable and can automate tasks such as formatting text or applying bullet lists. However, this macro programming language can also be used to write viruses that activate  when you open the Word file.

By using tempting filenames or message conent the hackers are quite good at encouraging users to open the attachment thus deploying the virus. A good example is “Credit Note XYZ” or similar that suggests by clicking you may receive some reward.

So how can you avoid problems ?

The best advice is to only open email attachments from a trusted source i.e. folk you know. Even then be weary as it is possible that their machine has become infected and is sending out the virus.

Make sure that your Eset Anti Virus is up to date and switched on and scanning email attachements for viruses.

Spam filtering software Devon with Spampython

Spam filtering software Devon with Spampython

With Spam filtering becoming an increasingly tough nut to crack we have completed our assessment of the various Spam filtering services available. There are many such services so the decision to run with so chosing SpamPython was not an easy one. We now offer this service at domain level, meaning that all email sent to your email addresses will be filtered for a fixed cost* irrespective of how many email addresses you have and how many emails you receive (*up to 100,000 per month on the standard tariff).

Calendar does not exist.

All anti Spam software uses filters to decipher what email is legitimate and what is not. SpamPython adds approximately 15,000 filters daily and currently has approximately 5 million filters in place making it the most thorough service available. In addition it monitors sender behaviour in real-time so it is able to spot servers that are emitting spam and act fast to prevent it from reaching your mailboxes.

Getting filtering levels right is very important. If you set levels too low then you continue to get spam email. If you set them too high then there is a good chance that you will miss some legitimate email. When you deploy SpamPython you have no such worries and you will only receive genuine email saving you bundles of wasted time and money.

Other benefits of SpamPython include reduced congestion of your valuable bandwidth. Instead of your broadband being cluttered downloading bogus email and attachments it will be freed up allowing web pages to load and legitimate email to download quicker. PLUS no more wasted time deleting junk from your inbox !

With easy access to your quarantine area you can keep an eye on things and be confident that you are not missing out on any important email. The simple preview facility allows you to safely view erroneous email by masking links and images to eliminate the risk of any infection.
