With today’s implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Google’s proposed ‘down-ranking’ of unencrypted websites from July this year – we are now offering all our existing clients, and any new clients free 256-bit SSL Certificates on all packages. With thanks to Lets Encrypt, all clients will now be able to access the Auto SSL service from their cPanel account; and encrypt all domains on their account.
We will be writing help guides for our clients on how best to implement this security – which will be published in our Knowledge Base in the next coming month.
Over the past year, we here at 21st Webb have been working tirelessly in the background to refurbish the services we have to offer.
Since 21st Webb was first launched, we have been able to offer a range of webdesign packages to our clients at competitive prices with thanks to outsourcing our designer-platform to the US. Over the past year we have been working on setting up a completely different platform over here in the UK; which, aside from bringing our clients data back to the the UK / EU, will also allow us to offer a whole new range of services. The move to our own UK-based platform allows for the prices of our packages to remain at their current, competitively low rate.
Our new platform provides our clients with access to their own webserver share, with cPanel access for extensive controls and configuration possibilities. The platform also allows new and existing clients to register new domains directly with us, or transfer their current domains across to us at competitive registration / renewal prices. What’s more, the new platform can provide our clients with their own mailsever, using their own domain; a service we have previously had to outsource. Thanks to cPanel, our clients are able to do much more than host a website and emails – on their webserver share, through cPanels built-in installer suite comes hundreds of different applications available for install; meaning our clients can now host forums, CRM’s, messaging platforms, file-sharing platforms and much more.
Although we started out as a webdesign company; we have decided with the move of our services over to the new UK-based platform – we will primarily be providing webhosting services as of 2018. The new platform allows for automated management of new and existing clients, automatically allocating and maintaining their individual webserver shares, cPanel accounts and domains. Therefore we can now provide webhosting services directly from our website, at any time and location. Each clients cPanel account allows for individuals to setup and maintain their own web-based services themselves through the easy-to-use setup wizards built into cPanel. We will always continue to provide support to all clients however, and are developing an in-house Knowledge Base exclusively for 21st Webb clients and services.
Over the next 6 months we will be providing all existing clients the opportunity to migrate their existing websites across onto the new platform. Support for all designer-platform clients will continue as normal, on either platform.
21st Webb are currently developing a new area of service. We are excited to reveal the latest development in Microsoft SharePoint hosting; enabling us to offer clients a hosted and managed SharePoint site-collection for less the price of an individual corporate SharePoint package.
We will be able to offer:
- different organisations within SharePoint
- different user groups, for hierarchical content management
- global app-development and hosting
- central corporate e-mail client
- shared work-space
- employee collaboration
Keep following our company updates page for further updates on this development. Or feel free to contactus if you are interested.
Based on UK policy regarding the Data Protection Act (1995), it has been necessary to oversee the data streams for our clients hosting websites and storing data from aforesaid sites on servers outside of the UK.
After cooperation with the Information Commissioners Office (UK), it has been justified that website and data store provided by 21st Webb is in compliance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act (1998).
Many thanks to the ICO!
We’re back and re-loaded. That’s right, 21st Webb is back online and ready for business.
After our year-long break we’ve renovated and are ready to take on all sorts of challenges and design ideas.
