If you are trading under your own name now is the time to register your IE domain. Why? It is highly likely that the IE Domain Registry will be amending the rules governing “personal” IE domains. What does this mean? Soon any Irish resident will be able to register theirname.ie ie. if your name is […]
Just to followup on the network maintenance from the other evening. The work went ahead as scheduled and we have not had any reports of issues from clients. We will be announcing the next phase in our network upgrades and maintenance plans in the coming days. To keep abreast of these changes I’d recommend you […]
We’re doing some more work on our core network this week, as we finally get to put our new Juniper routers live. There shouldn’t be any network downtime, as BGP should allow us simply to route the traffic elsewhere while making the changes, however when there are computers and humans involved you can never be […]
Nominet has been working on upgrades to their backend systems over the last few weeks. The upgrades were meant to have been finished by this morning, but there have been some delays. This has led to a slight backlog on requests for new registrations, updates and renewals. All requests are being queued.
If you want to get a “previously owned” IE domain then today is a good day for you. If you check our deleted domain list you will see that it has updated as of midday today (or thereabouts) and now includes the latest IE domain deletions. If you qualify to register the domains you can […]
We’ve just put a new shared Linux server live. It’s running Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as all of our newer Linux servers do. What makes this server special is that it is the first one to come with MySQL 5 on Linux (on our network at least). Hopefully the new server will live up to […]

With MySQL there are open source web frontends, such as PhpMyAdmin, that do a fantastic job at providing a web frontend to the database server. You don’t need to be a hardcore DBA to […]
Several of our team will be up a the Irish Internet Association event in Killiney Castle this Thursday. The conference, which we’ve been attending for the last 3 or 4 years, is always a good event and is a wonderful opportunity to “put faces to names”, so why not drop by our stand in the […]
Over the last few months we’ve seen a steady increase in requests for MS SQL 2005 databases. Up until earlier today we were quite conservative in our allocation of MS SQL 2005 databases, but we’ve changed all that. We’re now offering a database per site on all MS SQL plans ie. if the hosting plan […]
Over the last couple of weeks our developers have been working closely with both Realex and our bank to integrate 3D Secure / Verified by Visa. If you want to know more about how the verified by Visa / 3D Secure system works there is a lot of information about it available on the Visa […]
I just got back from Mullingar a couple of hours ago where I was a guest of the Westmeath County Enterprise Board and the IIA. The event, which was entitled “Using the Internet and Blogging to Increase Sales”, was highly enjoyable and featured a great panel: Maryrose Lyons – who gave a talk on content […]
