Search Engines and Offline Marketing
Gaining competitive advantage
From the black arts of web marketing to improving your brand, we can assist in getting your website, and your company, the attention it deserves.
We don't pretend there's a big secret to web marketing. Using basic principles and ethical techniques, we've helped many companies move up in the search engine rankings in competitive markets such as Spanish property and children's clothing. We offer everything from straightforward advice to full online marketing services, including link campaigns and Adwords management. Whatever your budget, and whatever your market, we can help.
We also help with traditional ("offline") marketing - writing press releases, or working with your managers or external marketing consultants to achieve brand objectives.latest news latest news

Information for Developers
The following names (in precedence order) can be used for default documents on your site: index.aspx, default.aspx, index.asp, default.asp, index.php, default.php, index.htm, index.html, default.html. Some of these will not be available if your account doesn't include support for certain scripting languages (.aspx requires ASP.NET, .asp requires ASP, and .php requires PHP).
All directories in your account have write permission as standard. Directory browsing is disabled by default.
SMTP Server for sending mail from scripts will be smtp followed by your domain name, for example mail.your_domain.com
If you require scripts to be executed on a scheduled basis, you will need to contact us detailing your requirements. This service is provided on a consultancy basis.
We do not provide any further programming advice or support except on a consultancy basis.
ASP & ASP.NET
Our servers provide PHP version 4.4 from The PHP Group. All standard installation extensions are available. Script names must end with the extension .php
Front Page Server Extensions
We STRONGLY recommend against using these - they are a security weekpoint in the Microsoft webserver, and have been responsible for a large number of malicious attacks on servers around the world (although Microsoft have now provided patches that fix these holes).
