Effective Website Launch

Computers are complicated at best, but when it comes to your email and website there is a lot of unknowns and can be very tricky.

As a web designer and IT company, the trickiest area comes when launching and updating email setup. We suggest the following points when engaging a web designer and setting up your website hosting:

  • Approve Your Website. Ensure you are 100% happy with the website before launching. This will take pressure off the launch.
  • You have a right to your name. Not your web designer. When it comes the time to change website and hosting, often other companies will attempt to hold onto your domain name.
  • Takes time. Launching your website takes up to 24hours to be LIVE, including your email. This process can take a little while to be instant, but working with us we can setup your most effective transition.
  • Be Proactive. It is very helpful for us to be proactive.
If you have any other questions about launching website, please contact us!

Google Wave - Are you on it?

Google recently launched a prototype called Google Wave set to replace Email and collaboration. I must admit, I was skeptical, however after seeing a preview I am extremely impressed.

Email has many flaws; spam, business object integration, bounces, identity theft, listed content. Google Wave has set out to create a platform which people/businesses can interact in a brand new wave (I mean way). Discussions are initiated, based on anything, and people you invite into the discussion can contribute LIVE in anyway. Photos can be posted, blogs can be integrated and you can invite others into the discussion.

As the system is just a prototype at this stage, it gives away enough to be very exciting.

Watch this space!
