If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.


I was going to write lots of information on the types of hosting I can offer you, then I thought ... there are 2 types of people who need hosting ... those who have no idea what FTP or WHM are and those who do ... so those who don't know will probably not care and those who do, don't need me to explain it to them! Does that make sense? 

Pretty much any hosting is £5 a month ...


So ... unless you want something really extraordinary (ecommerce ... massive data driven website ... ) then hosting is £5 a month (not £4.99 ... £5 ... same thing ... penny ... even penny chews are smaller now!!) ... if you want to haggle, I'll make it £4.99 ... but, of course I will recover my lost profits elsewhere :)

Just in case you want some nice technical details ...


  • Dual Intel Xeon X5660 Hexa Core CPUs
  • 96GB DDR3 RAM
  • 2 x SAS-based hard drives for the operating system, in RAID 1 for additional reliability
  • 4 x 500GB SATA-based hard drives for client data, in RAID 10 for added performance and reliability.

Fed up of listening to somebody talk absolute gobbledygook?

I try (very hard ... believe me ... mnemonics are a nerds best friend) to use as straight forward and easy to understand English as possible (maybe not whilst I'm writing, but when I'm on the phone) ...

In my experience, people use their computers as tools, and that means they perform one or two tasks on them ... they have no interest in what the bar at the bottom of their home screen is called ... and for that matter what the *%$£ is a home screen?

I can organise support in a way that best suits you, some support can be dealt with quickly and easily over the phone, whereas other cases might involve me remotely connecting to your computer (this is sometimes merely because trying to describe which icon to click or which folder to open is actually easier if I can see what you are seeing) ...

Why not let me know what you need, and I'll do my best to facilitate :)

Need some help organising your information?

Data Cleansing


Data cleansing sometimes known as data cleaning is the process whereby you make sure all the records you have in your database (be it SQL, Access, Excel)is checked to make sure it contains valid (and therfore useful) records. After all, the data that you hold on your customers is vital to your business, good data means you can provide better customer service and identify marketing prospects easier and quicker.
I am always meeting people who have a constant battle to keep their records up to date, or even of any use.
In my own personal situation I have worked on a database which contained numerous errors in the addresses of customers alone (this was partly the fault of the people who originally wrote the bespoke EPOS system and didn't put in any 'moron traps', and partly staff being otherwise engaged in work to correctly input data) ....
Here are a few links to help you out if you want to try and clean up your own data :)
Top Ten Ways To Clean Your Data  Examples from Microsoft on tidying up your Excel spreadsheets
  • xml
  • mssql
  • mysql
  • access database
  • excel
  • csv
  • openoffice files

Having trouble distinguishing your CMS from your HTML ? 

Got no idea what I'm talking about? 


Then join the masses that use the internet everyday, but don't actually know what goes on in the background!

Nothing to be ashamed of ... who the hell knows how their car works ... but we all (well most of us) drive without any problems!

Need somebody to update some photos? (new staff ... new product ... new address) ... done in a flash ...

Need some text changed? Easy !

I've been involved in the general administration of websites for over 12 years ... no job too small or too big :)


  • Updating information
  • Updating Photos
  • Checking Compliance
  • Checking links
  • Making sure things like meta tags are correct.
  • Optimising load speeds and checking compatability with new devices.
  • Backing up data and informing you if content needs to be reviewed due to time/technology etc.

I can provide administration services for all the major CMS and if you have access to your hard coded website hosting, then alteration to these sites can be arranged too!

Nothing is impossible ... somethings are really really difficult, time consuming and annoying .. but not impossible!



Do you have an ecommerce site, but not the time or expertise to update products? or do you only sell a few products and updating is very irregular? 

Both scenario's can be catered for - let me do the donkey work, while you make a fortune and retire to a tiny island in the Carribean :)

Things Change ... Plans ChangeBeen a while since I updated my website ... so today (it's cold and damp outside) it's time to make an effort and move forward :)

I've been having fun partaking in the thrills and excitement of temporary employment ... but now it's time to upgrade to fulltime employment ... and if that means working for myself ... then so be it ... whole new set of rules here ... no more doing favours for people ...



Web Design

Web Administration

Web Consultancy

Logo Design


Spreadsheet Design

Database Maintenance ...

Digital Photography ...

The list is endless (well, not in reality, but in an overally dramatic sense it could be) ... I'll be creating full explanations of everything that I can offer over the next few weeks, in the meantime ... think I might be able to help? drop me a line :D

I'll still be keeping this as my personal website, so you'll still be able to find pretty useless information about many and increasingly obscure (I've noticed) aspects of the interwebnet ...

... enjoy ...

... Paul
