Do you really need a website?

As an X-Gener i.e. when living prior to the internet, we relied on visible/physical advertising or word of mouth.

Slowly came email, the internet, then the dot-com bust…. alas, the internet is here to stay.

The newer generations tend to navigate to the Social platforms.

Unfortunately, social platforms sometimes dictate content. 

It is easy top hop onto Facebook, free hosting services, etc… but these platforms continually change or “Free” becomes paid.

Make your site yours : Me@MySite.tld

With MySite.tld, you get:

  • Complete Control over your domain
  • Multiple Email Addresses @MySite.tld
  • Email Redirects such as TextMe@MySite.tld forwarded to multiple email addresses or even a cell phone service.
  • Your own content and/or sub-content such as Summer.MySite.tld, Winter.MySite.tld or BLOG.MySite.tld, eCommerce.MySite.tld.
  • No need to email everyone that your email address has changed.
  • … and so on….
  • This is the perfect way to Brand Yourself and/or your interests.

Moving a Site

Moving a website.
Moving in a Peugot

Moving  a site may entail HTML, data from databases, etc…

If you need to move a site from one server to another, not a problem.

Regularly, we develop and test sites offline to make sure all is in order before a we migrate to the destination server and the site goes live.

Upon request, we also have a backup server for testing, “playing”, etc… Example for YourSite.ca can viewed at bak.YourSite.ca

Want your site migrated to a home server. This is possible too.

Contact Management System (CMS)

A Content Management System (CMS) is the collection of procedures used to manage work flow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual or computer-based.

The procedures are designed to:

  • Allow for a large number of people to contribute to and share stored data
    Control access to data, based on user roles/permissions.
  • User roles/permissions define what information each user can view or edit
    Aid in easy storage and retrieval of data
  • Improve the ease of creating, editing, deleting content.
  • Improve communication between users with collaborated posts, comments, content, etc…

In a CMS, data can be defined as nearly anything – documents, movies, pictures, phone numbers, scientific data, etc.

Our supported CMS systems (frameworks) such as WordPress and Drupal, allows your Website to be modified by you and your collaborators without the direct need for our involvement as the hosting provider or framework. It is best to evaluate the PROS and CONS of which framework to use.

WordPress Framework

WordPress is an open source blogging tool and a content management  system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system.

WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system in use on the Web.

WordPress began as a blogging tool, however, has evolved into a full-fledged CMS powering some big names.

WordPress has the easiest interface (as compared to most other CMSs). Furthermore, it also has many plugins and themes that can help you customize your website even if you are not comfortable with code and Web development. In fact, WordPress has the shallowest learning curve of all the three CMSs under review. Plus, the official documentation is so well https://norgo.com/frameworks/contact-management-system-cms/supplemented by several community blogs all across the Internet that if you ever run into any trouble, you can be sure that help is at hand.

WordPress is in active development, and fixes/patches are released frequently. On the downside, these patches seem even more necessary for WordPress because it appears to be more vulnerable in matters of security compared to Drupal or Joomla!

There are + and – to all frameworks.

With weighing all the + and – on a regular basis, we find WordPress is the best choice, however, for safety, we prefer to be very picky with the plugins (addons) in any WordPress website.

Frameworks

While we still support ASP.net and have active businesses running on sites written, our focus changed during the recession as it did for many.

 We now focus on WordPress and Drupal frameworks which are the leading CMS (Content Management Systems) running on PHP. 

Some customers prefer to have a simple html solution which as it simple as setting aside a folder, setting up a method to copy and paste html files (via a FTP account – File Transfer Protocol) for that customer, and done!
