Abandoned? Come home to Consult Tech
Recently, we talked with a customer who had been abandoned. What happened? The company that built and hosted their website simply became so large and successful they no longer had the time or inclination to continue supporting this smaller business entity. They had to find a new hosting company, and no longer have any support for their existing website.
We have no intention of ever abandoning your business! Our plan is to support you completely as long as you need us. If you have been set adrift by your former designer or hosting company, just let us know. We’ll give you a very reasonable quote on migrating your site to our servers.
Google Chrome Requires SSL Effective June, 2018. Help!
Google is starting the phased in roll-out of enforced SSL through their Chrome web browser . What does this mean for you? If you are not yet using SSL (a secure server certificate) on your website, the Chrome browser will flag your website as insecure. This is an effort to encourage websites to switch from using HTTP to HTTPS. Later on, more serious warnings may occur, and eventually most people may not want to visit your site at all. As well, this may affect your SEO ratings, and make it more difficult for people to find your site.
Consult Tech provides SSL certificates at no cost to our customers. We can also work with you to enable this important technology even if you do not host with us. Give us a call and see what we can do for you!
