Climate Gardens - New Website!

7th Nov 2013

We recently launched this gem of a site for Climate Gardens, the organisation raising awareness and understanding of the effects of climate change on our gardens, parks and green spaces.

Climate Gardens on mobileOur commission involved initial consultation and site planning, copywriting support and creation of of a visual brand in-line with the existing logo. As well as design of responsive layouts, full HTML5 coding of all templates and implementation of the content management system.

More pictures of this project and features of the website can be found in our portfolio.

We provided training and support on writing and preparing online content for our client's audience as well as how to use the content management system.

Another Domain Scam

19th Dec 2012

Unfortunately there's another domain scam doing the rounds via e-mail. We've been bombarded by them here.

I'm sure you would be able to tell that these renewal notices are fake but we just wanted to let you know about them to make sure. Here's what they look like:

Domain renewal e-mail

If we have purchased domains on your behalf we will always contact you directly to let you know that your renewal is due, at least 30 days beforehand.


Changes to Domain Renewals

15th Oct 2012

This is a notice for clients for whom we have registered and continue to renew domain names on their behalf.

Our domain registrar has let us know that they are implementing some changes to ensure renewal of domains run as smoothly as possible, lowering the risk of domain suspension and downtime. So, they will now request domain renewal payments 7 days in advance of the expiry date. As you already know, our terms and conditions say that funds are required by us at least 14 days in advance of the expiry date, otherwise we can't be responsible if your domain name is lost, suspended or bought by someone else. Therefore, in light of these changes, we will continue to send your renewal reminders at least 30 days in advance and request that payment is made 14 days before domain exipry.

We know that you, our lovely clients, pay promptly anyway and so I hope that these changes won't affect you too much and that our early reminders will still provide plenty of time to prepare your renewal payment. If you have any questions then please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you
