    Does every small business need a website?

    Posted on September 16, 2016

    As incredible as it may seem, there are still some businesses that do not have their own website. They probably assume that they do not need a website. There is no doubt whatsoever that they are wrong, and this is why…

    Many local businesses that do not trade online do not have a website. They are usually, though, not completely invisible on the web. They could have a Facebook page or be registered on a directory such as Yell.com or Google Local.

Nor is it going to be a deeply technical nerd-fest where I drone on about RAID, RAM, bandwidth and other things nobody really cares about.

    No, this is going to be about web hosting and what you get when your website is hosted with Engage Web, as opposed to using other hosting providers.

    What is web hosting

    Let’s kick off with a simple one, but something many people still ask when they’re enquiring about a new website. ‘Web hosting’ refers to the server space, or the computer, on which your website sits. This server is always switched on and is always (more…)

    Ironic spelling error becomes Twitter trend

    Posted on September 13, 2016

    Those who spent last Thursday and Friday poking about on Twitter, and who have a keen eye for typos, might have flinched at a particular trending topic during those two days. It was one that spawned from sloppiness, developed through irony and rocketed thanks to pure scorn.


    If you haven’t spotted it yet, we’re talking about the (more…)
