Scotsfox

Scotsfox can install and host Joomla! Content Management Systems (CMS) or WordPress CMS.

Both these systems are Open Source and are free to use for most individuals and Not-For-Profit organisations.

Installation is FREE with my hosting and your software is kept up-to-date as new releases are issued.

I try to keep unnecessary costs to a minimum so use ONLY eMail for communication.

Please respect this as it is just not possible to offer telephone or personal contact and maintain my very low prices.

I’ve found that it’s not really necessary to have time-consuming meetings when everything can be done via eMail.

Time is money, yours and mine!

Have a look round my site and please don’t hesitate to eMail for no nonsense web advice in PLAIN ENGLISH!

Continuous Data Protection

Continuous Data Protection (CDP) allows us to run close to continuous data backups of all our servers and customer data.

We have deployed a private network between separate datacenters in order to perform CDP backups to off-site secure locations, providing ultimate peace of mind even during “worst case” scenarios where data recovery is required.

R1Soft’s technology works at disk sector level, rather than traditional file level. The solution delivers bare-metal disaster recovery meaning in the worst possible circumstances we could completely restore a server from a very recent backup in a matter of minutes not hours. Near-continuous data protection means the difference between losing only minute’s worth of data in the face of a disaster compared to days or weeks.

Many hosting providers take backups, but they often go untested for reliability, with nobody knowing how well those backups will restore, and in many cases they are not sufficiently up to date. With Continuous Data Protection we maintain an ultra reliable, extremely recent copy of all data, and its stored well away from its primary facilities.

Our new off-site CDP backups provide our clients with complete peace of mind. If a customer deletes a file by mistake, it can be restored, but also in the face of any major catastrophe we have a secure, off-site copy of all data which can be restored to new servers in record time.

Domain Names

Scotsfox can register and administer your domain name for you, just let me know what you want.

YOU DON’T NEED A WEBSITE TO REGISTER YOUR DOMAIN NAME…

…I CAN “PARK” IT FOR YOU

Remember I always register Domains in YOUR name NOT mine.
I only host sites where I administer the domain

No quibble, no charge transfer to another administrator guaranteed if requested

Joomla! CMS

Joomla! CMS

Content Management Systems are database driven web site applications where the structure of the site is separate from the content. This allows the user to add and remove their own content via any web browser.

I use OpenSource applications mainly Joomla!

The latest Joomla! build can be installed on my hosting free of charge.

The fantastic thing about OpenSource software is that it’s free to use in most cases.

Joomla! sites require access to a MySQL database and this is supplied with all Joomla! installations.

Joomla!

WordPress

Have you caught the blogging bug?

Need a simple, easily maintained website?

Scotsfox can help you with set up and hosting of your blog/site.

There are many Blogging sites out there where you can set up a blog and go, but there are distinct advantages to hosting your blog on your own domain – have a look at the forums on many of the blog sites and you’ll see the many frustrations caused by down time etc.

With your own blog you can also have more control over the look and feel and the database of content is yours to take away at anytime.

wordpress.org

WordPress sites require access to a MySQL database and this is supplied with all installations.
