Products & Services domains, email, & antivirus support

Have you heard of DNS? A lot of people have but don’t have a clue what it is! It stands for Domain Name System and is basically the phonebook of the Internet. If you have a business website, the name of that site is your domain name. But not everyone has an email to match – and if they do, it isn’t always set up in the most optimal way. We can host, configure and maintain DNS services for your email systems as your company grows. It involves a few different elements that you can pick and choose from. Set up email addresses (domain names): This is usually based on your company name and is far more professional than having a Google address, especially if you haven’t yet got a website sorted out. For example, you might have ‘Bestwindowscompanykent@google.com’. Consider how that might look to someone comparing you to ‘info@secondbestwindowcompanykent.com’. Who would you be most likely to choose? The one who invested in a ‘proper’ email address, or the Google guy who says he’s the best in Kent? Why not have hello@ Bestwindowscompanykent.com’? Far more professional and genuine. We can set that up for you. We can let you know if a particular name is available, suggest an alternative if it isn’t and set it up so that email flows correctly and people can locate you on the internet. And it gives you a bump start on your website too. Changing your email addresses: We realise some companies do have a website but choose not to have the email services and set up their email addresses in something like Google or Hotmail. For the very same reasons we just mentioned above, we can set up your email address to match your web address using Microsoft Exchange or other email packages. This will also make your email and calendar management far more streamlined and efficient. Replace your webmail email service with Microsoft Exchange: Another issue some companies find is that when they set up their business website they choose hosted webmail services to run their email. This has the same address as your website but can be problematic, especially as your business grows. Calendars can only sync on one machine, there might be problems with out of office and adding numbers of users. We can address this for you even if your web services are managed elsewhere. Security certificate setup for emails: SSL certificates are generally thought of in terms of website security, but you can get similar certificates for emails. These are known as S/MIME email certificates. We can help you purchase and set up these certificates for your emails so you and your clients can be assured that emails are being sent securely.

Alison came to our rescue when we had serious computer issues with a very nasty virus. She stayed quite late into the evening, impacting on her own time, to sort this out. She is a very personable, helpful and genuine person and would thoroughly recommend and endorse her, we certainly will not be looking anywhere else for our computer issues.

I never write reviews!!! Ali is, however, outstanding at what she does and totally deserves one. She has completely organised my entire IT system again for me and given me confidence to continue with this side of my business with her total support. She by far goes the extra mile, is there at any hour and every job is treated with priority. I am so glad I found her!!!
