Hurricane Irma Alert

We have been closely monitoring Hurricane Irma, and as many of you probably already suspect NetSource’s office in Ocala, FL will be closed at least Monday. It is likely that we will lose power here in our office. This means that we will be unable to send or receive email or phone calls from the office.

For Technical Support

In order to serve customers with Technical Support issues, [email protected] will deliver to a mailbox on one of our storm hardened servers in Orlando. We will monitor this mailbox as frequently as possible and respond to customer requests as soon as we can. Obviously if something is broken that requires a drive, our response may be delayed by high winds or road debris, but we will respond as soon as it is safe to do so.

Websites & Email Should Be Unaffected

All of the servers hosting our customer’s DNS, websites, FTP, Email, etc. are in storm hardened and secure data centers with large banks of batteries as well as generators and a guaranteed fuel supply. This means we do not expect the storm to impact those servers. It is possible that one or more Internet links to the data centers will go down, but they have many redundancies built in, which should ensure that our servers and our customers’ websites will be reachable throughout the storm and following the storm.

 

Mobile is critical to your online success. Not simply whether you have a mobile website or not, but how well does it perform, how easy is it to use, how quickly does it download, and how good does it look? Mobile websites and online commerce have grown rapidly in the last few years.  With such rapid growth, some of the buzzwords and definitions have gotten a little fuzzy. Specifically, what the heck is the difference between a responsive and an adaptive website? Is there a difference? Which one do I need? […]

Woman with loudspeaker

If you’ve ever been in charge of your company’s website (or are considering having a site built), you know that there are some industry terms that designers, developers, and consultants throw around. If you’re not a techie, you might sometimes feel like your web designer is speaking a foreign language. Sometimes you might recognize a buzz-word you heard on the news or read about in a business journal. Sometimes, these are technical terms that just go with the terrain. All of them are necessary for you to understand though – to make sure you get the most out of your site and your service providers. […]

Audience Retargeting

Retargeting – also know as remarketing – is a powerful online marketing tool. You’ve probably heard the term, but maybe you’re not quite sure what it is, and whether it is something you should be doing (the answer is likely YES!). So let’s take a look at retargeting, how it is done, and the benefits to your bottom line.

Asking your customers for reviews on Google is a great strategy for building your local search results and positively managing your reputation online. However, Google has safeguards in place to discourage fraudulent or spammy reviews, and you don’t want to run afoul of their guidelines which can end up costing you.

The final shot!

We’ve all been there. You spend hours on your masterpiece – planning, scooping out messy pumpkin guts, carving away carefully.

But the photo you take ends up a blurry, dark mess, and no matter what you do, you can’t capture the awesomeness of your pumpkin…

Here’s how to get the great Halloween pumpkin photo you’ve been dreaming of! […]
