Nominet has been working on upgrades to their backend systems over the last few weeks. The upgrades were meant to have been finished by this morning, but there have been some delays. This has led to a slight backlog on requests for new registrations, updates and renewals. All requests are being queued.
If you want to get a “previously owned” IE domain then today is a good day for you. If you check our deleted domain list you will see that it has updated as of midday today (or thereabouts) and now includes the latest IE domain deletions. If you qualify to register the domains you can […]
We’ve just put a new shared Linux server live. It’s running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as all of our newer Linux servers do. What makes this server special is that it is the first one to come with MySQL 5 on Linux (on our network at least). Hopefully the new server will live up to […]
Since we run a firewalled network giving clients direct access to the MS SQL servers has always been a security issue. With MySQL there are open source web frontends, such as PhpMyAdmin, that do a fantastic job at providing a web frontend to the database server. You don’t need to be a hardcore DBA to […]
Several of our team will be up a the Irish Internet Association event in Killiney Castle this Thursday. The conference, which we’ve been attending for the last 3 or 4 years, is always a good event and is a wonderful opportunity to “put faces to names”, so why not drop by our stand in the […]
Over the last few months we’ve seen a steady increase in requests for MS SQL 2005 databases. Up until earlier today we were quite conservative in our allocation of MS SQL 2005 databases, but we’ve changed all that.

The event, which was entitled “Using the Internet and Blogging to Increase Sales”, was highly enjoyable and featured a great panel: Maryrose Lyons – who gave a talk on content […]

Are you spending too much on domains and hosting? Do you feel that you are getting ripped off? If you check out the pricing of domain names with some of the other Irish providers you will get a nasty shock. Why on earth would anyone want to spend over €80 per annum on a .ie […]
Security should not be an afterthought and when you flaunt it too much you will end up regretting it. While a hosting provider can do their utmost to make their network and servers as secure as possible there are limits. Our clients want to be able to use technologies such as PHP, Ruby on Rails, […]
Although I normally don’t talk about what other companies are up to here, the RegisterFly situation is of such gravity that it would be silly not to. It also affects a small number of our clients. If you haven’t been following the news in the media (both online and offline) let me summarise it for […]
