We provide web hosting services to individuals and small businesses. Services include
We can set your site up with a Content Management System complete with templates for your site design. This gives you easy control over your site content allowing you to update the site as you require. The CMS we recommend includes a number of extension modules including E-commerce with built-in access to either the Worldpay or DPS payment gateway, blogs, user defined forms, forums and more. See the Silverstripe site for more information.
We can develop an online database built around the MySQL relational database management system. We have a framework in place that allows us to quickly build an online membership database providing facilities including:
We can further build on this framework to provide additional functionality such as Professional Development tracking and online invoicing of members.
One of our additional services is the ongoing administration of memberships for distributed organisations. An online database complements this service nicely.
We run a number of online mailing lists for various organisations. These provide a two way dialogue between members of a group through a single e-mail address. Our mailing list software provides web access to list archives and provides for the easy addition and deletion of members.
We can administer your mailing lists or provide you with the access to administer them yourself.
