It seems we’ve been nominated for the Best Business Blog category at this year’s Irish Blog Awards. Thanks to whoever nominated us! I honestly don’t expect us to win, as the competition is very strong in that category, so best of luck to all the nominees!

Hi All, Up until recently we’ve left register_globals on, for the sake of cutting down on support issues with particularly iffy php code writing styles. Today we’re officially announcing that we are disabling register_globals across the board now on all our shared hosting servers. The simple fix for this if it affects you is to […]
Issue: We’re seeing errors regarding a bad PSU in a switch in DEG. We’re not going to take any chances leaving it as is, so we’re going to RMA the switch. Outage Window: For customers on the affected switch, an e-mail will be sent notifying you of this downtime window. Duration: 5-15 minutes total for […]
We’ve been offering WordPress via an automated installer for quite some time and it’s proven to be very popular. Unfortunately WordPress’ use of SQL is far from optimal and this can easily lead to a popular blog or site causing serious issues on our servers (or anyone elses for that matter!). We don’t like enforcing […]
DomainFest draws to a close this morning with the farewell breakfast which I won’t be attending.

Registration for this year’s DomainFest will be opening in little over an hour’s time at 10am PST. The organisers of this year’s event are expecting over 600 delegates to attend over the event’s three days. Personally I’m looking forward to the live auctions being held tomorrow and Wednesday.

Today I can proudly announce that Menupages.ie is now available over IPv6. Another interesting announcement is that this site is the first site on our network powered by IIS7 running […]

Earlier today I emailed several thousand of our clients (some don’t want to receive emails and have opted out) with a special offer and a link to the first customer survey we’ve ever conducted. I was hoping that we’d get some responses, but I’d no way of knowing how many we would get and so […]
Issue: Iseult down Due to an attack of some kind (report to follow after log analysis is complete) the shared hosting server iseult had to be rebooted. Post reboot the machine is now giving a grub error (grub is a boot loader). We’ve dispatched a Linux engineer to the data centre to fix this issue. […]
If you’re an existing client or subscribe to our newsletter make sure you check your mail. We’ve sent you a very tasty special offer. No. This offer is not open to the public
The following article was published earlier today in Washington Internet Daily. It is reproduced here with the publisher’s permission. I posted a related article on my domain blog earlier this week.
