Contractors vs Staff

Web site designers, programmers, developers & contractors

In uncertain economic times, having permanent staff is a high-risk strategy. For the past decade, as part of a Business Risk Management strategy, I’ve utilised the services of professional freelance programmers, designers, and technicians on an “as required” basis. That also keeps costs to a minimum…

Web Hosting & Domain Registration

I’ve always encouraged clients to utilise a professional independent hosting service. In 2012, in response to client requests for full-service hosting services,  I established a VPS server on a Hostgator data-centre. The benefit is instant access to server settings to provide fast response time to customer issues!

For local NZ sites, I personally use and recommend the services provided by my colleague Jon Walker, at Web Wide Hosting. WWH has servers physically located in New Zealand, Australia, United Kingdom and the USA. WWH provides an excellent level of experience, knowledge and support.
