Rural Business Awards: Regional Finalist

Rural Business Awards: Regional Finalist

We are thrilled to announce that 21st Webb has made the shortlist for the 2021-2022 Rural Business Awards for Wales & Northern Ireland, in both the Best Rural Professional Services Business and the Best Rural Innovation categories.

We are set to battle it out against fellow rural businesses, entrepreneurs and enterprises from across the region for a place at the national final. The regional final will be held virtually in October 2021, with the National Final taking place early next year.

The Rural Business Awards 2021/2022, in partnership with Amazon, will mark the Awards’ seventh year of celebrating the success of businesses across the UK’s rural economy. The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business with the aim of celebrating the achievements of rural businesses and developing a strong network for rural business owners.

Director and Co-Founder of The Rural Business Awards, Jemma Clifford, added: “We are excited to celebrate the 2021/2022 awards after such a challenging year for businesses. We are passionate about creating a nurturing environment where rural businesses can develop, and this starts by showcasing the great work they do. On behalf of everyone at the Rural Business Awards, we want to say well done to 21st Webb and wish them luck ahead of the regional finals.”

The Rural Business Awards is the brainchild of Leicestershire businesswomen Anna Price and Jemma Clifford, who wanted to showcase the wealth of entrepreneurial talent in rural areas of Britain.

The Awards are organised by rural business for rural business, with winners in the 13 categories – ranging from Best Rural Start-up and Best Rural Diversification Project; through to Best Rural Professional Services Business and Best Rural Innovation – decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, rural public sector agencies, and rural charitable organisations.

The Rural Business Awards is hosting a series of regional finals in the North, East, Midlands, South West, Wales and Northern Ireland, throughout October 2021, ahead of the National Final next February.

We cannot wait to keep you updated with how we fare at the finals and are thrilled to have made it this far.

EARLY RELEASE: Hosted Unifi Controller

EARLY RELEASE: Hosted Unifi Controller

We are thrilled to announce the release of our latest service, ahead of schedule.

Introducing, Hosted Unifi Controller!

We have worked with many small businesses over the years, and been involved with a number of network upgrades, or complete installations. Following the success of our Hosted VoIP services, we have been working with new and existing clients, to upgrade their business network infrastructure.

We have found Ubiquiti products to be some of the best on the market, providing robust equipment at a reasonable price. And whilst there is other hardware available for less, what adds to the value of Ubiquiti’s equipment is their Unifi Network Controller application.

Unifi Controller is an easy-to-use platform providing a centralised management system for your network devices and providing an overview of all clients connected to your network. Some of it’s features that have been more popularly requested recently, is their instant Guest Hotspot system, alongside Hotspot Manager. This function within Unifi Controller allows secure Guest Networks to be easily setup and managed from one interface, and provides a tonne of configuration options, such as customisable login portals, Facebook authentication, pay-to-access logon, and many others.

To really take advantage of Ubiquiti’s equipment, Unifi Controller is needed, and ideally needs to be running permanently when opting for certain configuration options (such as Guest Wi-Fi portals, etc). And whilst we find the Ubiquiti equipment to be good value, their dedicated hardware solutions for running Unifi Controller can be a sizable expense for individuals and small businesses.

That’s why we have setup Hosted Unifi Controller – providing all the functionality of Unifi Controller, hosted by Microsoft in the cloud. For a small fee per month, we offer a scalable instance of Unifi Controller, accessible anywhere in the world. This allows you to manage your network and view it’s status remotely, using our Online Portal.

What’s more, we are offering a significant discount for certain industries, as well as anyone requiring multiple sites within Unifi Controller.

Sign up today, for your own site setup on our Hosted Unifi Controller, instantly.

Improved VPN Package

Improved VPN Package

Here at 21st Webb we believe in the importance of cybersecurity. That’s why we have been working on the security of our existing packages and platforms, as well as developing a new range of packages with enhanced security to be released later this year.

We released our VPN package less than 6 months ago, with great interest received from existing and new clients.

Whilst we already think our VPN package is great value for money, it’s always possible to do better. That’s why today we’re announcing a 100% increase to the device limit for each of our VPN account holders.

New and existing VPN package subscribers can now have up to 10 devices on their account at any one time, making our VPN package more accessible and better value for money than some of the other big names out there.

If you’re still not sure whether or not our VPN service is for you, why not check out our 60 second clip introducing you to the 21st Webb VPN service:

So for as little as £5.00 per month**, you can enjoy secure streaming, gaming, downloading and day-to-day browsing with no compromise on internet privacy and security.

New Year, New Product Range

New Year, New Product Range

With 2020 out the way, we are delighted to welcome in the new year with a new product range!

During what proved to be an eventful year, we have been working hard in the background on a new product range, establishing partnerships with key providers here in Europe.

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Microsoft 365 product range!

With thanks to our new-found partnership with one of Europe’s Gold Microsoft Partners, we can offer you the latest Microsoft 365 licenses at competitive prices.

To date, we are currently offering the Microsoft 365 Business range of licenses, each with no annual commitment. We are also able to offer Microsoft Education licenses to applicable organisations with pre-approved tenants.

Included with our new range of products is the latest Exchange Online licenses, the idea e-mail hosting solution for businesses of any size. But what’s more, if you need e-mail services not quite as advanced as that, we have put together our own e-mail hosting package, which will only bill you for the resources you use – making a cost-effective e-mail solution for individuals and start-ups.

Watch this space as we add more of Microsoft’s fantastic range of services to our site.

NEW Application Manager 2.0

NEW Application Manager 2.0

Wonder how we pull up live statistics throughout our site? Let us introduce to you, Application Manager!

Application Manager was originally designed as an in-house tool for centralising the management and oversight of all web applications we produce in-house.

Application Manager collates usage statistics from all running copies of our web applications, hosted anywhere across the internet. What’s more, these statistics can then be pulled out of the system and displayed on any authenticated WordPress site, using our bespoke WordPress theme.

The main purpose of Application Manager was initially to collect statistics on each instance of our web applications, allowing us to view 2 types of statistics:

  • Individual Application Statistics: the usage statistics for a particular instance of a web application.
  • or Overall Application Statistics: the total usage statistics for all instances of any given type of web application.

The latest version of Application Manager does more than just collate statistics; with new functions such as license key monitoring, application version checking, application development & documentation discovery, and much more.

Application Manager 2.0 also comes with a new feature, allowing owners of different app instances to access and view their own statistics, with Application Managers automated client discovery and account creation / attribution.

Whilst Application Manager currently remains an in-house tool, please feel free to read more on this web application and it’s features, on the Application Manager page.
