Experiencing website downtime? You need Namespace Rescue℠

Your website represents….

You and your business. You try to make yourself and your services available to your customers continuously…. while your website drops out, totally fails, suffers a spam attack or worse a hacker attack!

I can help!

What I check:

Daily check of website availability (usually the main page)

DNS services and domain registration (once a month)

Weekly check and in depth browse

Daily backups and weekly total site backup with storage of backups

New article/content checks on discovery. I also will monitor any Inbound RSS Feeds you might incorporate into your website

Updates of templates and system modules (plugins, widgets, etc) as needed.

Google Page Rank, Alexa Rank, and updates consistent with approved SEO methods

Operation of any Cron Tasks (automatic tasks that need or should run at various times)

What I provide:

Integration of social media and their widgets within your pages.

Integration of spam and security modules

Integration of the Jetpack module on WordPress based websites

Integration of the Akismet module on WordPress based websites

Assistance with adding content as needed.

Assistance with locating a better host (if ever needed) then moving your site and all the related services you’ve come to expect from your present host..

Plus!

I  run several ‘touch lists’ here daily and weekly.  I will add your site to them where appropriate in order to check the functions of your website

I have a system that runs website ‘cron tasks’ for us. I will add your site’s cron task to this list to make sure your automated tasks run regardless of your server’s capabilities.

The Price?

$88.00 every six months. Much cheaper than hiring someone in house or having your staff try to cover all these bases.

Please Note:

You may prefer to keep your present webmaster for day to day operations and use me as a second team member to work with them in keeping your site presentable and up to date. That is fine with me!

This service is renewable every six months.

After a time you might reach a point where you no longer need us except in emergencies. That’s fine with me but you will want to consider if the price of all services rendered might be less than the cost in downtime and emergency remediation of any problems. Either way I’ll be here to help.

Namespace Rescue℠

As a Web Developer I can offer you a very unique service.  I’ll be glad to step in as your webmaster and assist you and your team to reach whatever goals you might have for your website. The price? $88.00 every 6 mo.

I usually spend a hour or two the first month making any immediately needed upgrades/changes and performing an initial complete site backup. I’ll also be looking at mapping out needed technical improvements and increasing your social media reach.

In month two and three I’ll be working with you to add images and content while maintaining the site. This portion of the service might also involve helping to familiarize your staff with using the website’s built in services and functions to add information.

After the third or fourth month I hope we will have settled down into a maintenance mode where we continue to monitor your website, perform routine maintenance, backups, and your staff can add information and pictures. I’ll be there every step of the way.

What I check:

DNS services and domain registration (once a month)

Daily check of website availability (usually the main page)

Weekly check and in depth browse

Daily backups and weekly total site backup with storage of backups

New article/content checks on discovery. I also will monitor any Inbound RSS Feeds you might incorporate into your website

Are you experiencing website downtime?

Are you getting a bunch of excuses from your webhost or designer?

Most website down times can be remedied within the first hour of discovery. Complete server crashes may take a while longer due to the multiplicity of accounts being affected. Depends on the problem, how extensive the damage is and If backups are available.

For a single site malfunction, the proper way is to cure the breach, repair the problem, restore the backup or else put up a ‘In Maintenance’ or ‘Under Construction’ Page. Restore email services if the problem took down email also.. This gets the DNS, web server and email services running and troubleshot. Then the actual site and content can be restored as needed.

So, why do some hosts take for ever? It might be your fault.

Do you have someone actually assigned to liaison with the hosting company?This puts one point of contact on both sides as most hosting operations assign a tech, customer service rep or designer in charge of the trouble ticket and/or account.

Did you ask to store a backup at your office? Do you either have login credentials ‘at the ready’ for all your sites and domains? Or do you have someone to assist if not? (see my offer at end of Note)

If you actually host your site from your office or data center did you store a complete backup copy of the site elsewhere? Do you have someone assigned to drop all projects when there’s a website problem? Or a service company or web professional to assist?

So, why do some hosts take forever? It might be their fault.

Some smaller hosts  run their sites from one server and have no contingency plan in place if that server should crash. They choose to deal with problems as they arise which may overwhelm the staff.

A bigger host might run two or more servers and inter-op between the two with one server doing the master DNS for half the client sites and the other being slave and…. reversing those roles for the other half of their clients.

Same with email. One server is the email server for half the clients while the second if a forwarding server and vice versa. Half the client websites would be hosted on each server.

Some hosting companies or owners are talented artists and designers but fall flat on the technical issues. Being able to fix a PC still leaves you exposed when it comes to the intricacies of running a web server.

So what do you do?

Figure out how critical your site is to your operation…. and when. For instance, you might be running an online store. Availability is key to a a storefront!

You might normally count on your site for passing out information most all year but have several periods when your site needs to provide timely, changing info and possibly deliver ticket sales or other items.

You might find your site can survive multiple sever downtime instances due to your extensive use of social media. (This might be the right place for a forwarding ‘In Maintenance’ page when the web site/page is down. Forwarding to a Facebook type page after a brief message for example).

What to do?

You might want to hire some outside vendor or expert just to deal with backups, copies, server info, and recover issues. That’s part of what I do. Give me (Jeff) a call (540)-440-1850.

And if you find yourself in the middle of an emergency already feel free to call me. I may be able to help.

These sites can feature your own artwork, images, and written content. Any content I create for your website is done as a ‘Work For Hire’ so you retain ownership.

 

Development Websites

I usually have a few openings for what I call Development Websites. These are hosted on various hosting plans and services I use for testing and pre-building client websites. They carry a 99% uptime (as do all my offerings).

Pricing starts at $45.00 per year or else $60.00 per year with a Domain Name but you can save a few dollars by bringing your own domain. You may search for and register a domain at Paradigm Domains.

You save money on hosting costs. You also save $$$ and avoid many pitfalls by having a web tech available for technical issues. You’ll also gain the advantage of any services I might develop here and your site remains portable. You may take it with you to a new host or sell it with your business.

There are community based websites available to help promote your website(s) automatically included with this product.

I also offer a Complete Website Service. I’ll build your site and handle all technical issues including one domain name. This is Priced at $600.00 per year but includes a fully implemented website, Contact Relationship Manager and other features. All hosted on a client account dedicated to just your company.

I’ll add a Ecommerce System for $1.00 per each SKU!

The Plaza

I have one more ‘system’ type I can build. It’s call it “The Plaza”. I designed it for Shopping Malls/Centers, Small town Business Promotions, Geo Sites, Fleas Markets with steady vendors, etc.

Plaza Runs Multi-site WordPress with domain mapping and a single Pligg instance. The Pligg is the public front end while WordPress runs the backend and individual sites for store owners Vendors etc.

The WordPress ‘sites’ are closely coupled to their respective Facebook Pages and companion WordPress.com sites. a lot of the content updates to the pages are from the Facebook side. This makes it easy for the store owners to update their social media and their website at the same time.

Additionally the WordPress sites feed to the main Pligg which promotes the whole shopping center and the individual stores.

It’s a great system for anyone who wants to ‘up’ their location specific offerings with an additional attractive service. This system may also be used to promote umbrella businesses with multiple divisions. Motorsports teams with multiple interests, And Geographic Locations that attract or are trying to attract quality stores and shops.

Pricing varies but starts at $65.00 per month for the main page, system, installation, support, with five ‘vendor spots/pages’.

 

And finally: The Super Website Service

CRM and Ecommerce StoreFront available at no extra charge if your hosting can run these.

Multiple websites within WordPress MultiSite or Pligg (with limits).

You’ll host your site yourself on a host of your choosing. I certainly hope you’ll choose Paradigm Domains.

Added Hosting account sites are just $600.00 extra.

 

This product is for companies with ambitious projects and large accounts who need lots of support and technical expertise.  You’ll want to discuss this with me as a project before committing to this service but you’ll be very well served and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

 

Training

On site Training for your staff is available for $200.00 per day and all expenses including travel. Training is offered ‘As Available’ and is a 4 hour day (usually 10 AM to Noon and 2PM to 4PM class time with two 15-20 minute breaks in between).
