It has been a busy start to the year with us working through all of the bed and breakfast web sites that we look after, making security and general updates to improve how the web sites work. So far this year, updates have included:
Each of our sites run on a database and we have been busy updating sites behind the scenes to move up to the latest version. Although you will not notice any difference in the way your web site looks, you may see a bit of an increase in how fast your site loads. The new database is much quicker and so this will help customers viewing your site.
The little padlock icon that you see in the address bar when you visit a site is an important security feature and another tick for Google when it comes to ranking your site in the search engine. We have finished installing these on all sites.
We have had an issue with the number of spam e-mails getting through to customer accounts over the last few weeks but as of Thursday, our new spam protection system is in place. Early indications show that it is catching thousands of messages a week, stopping them from reaching your inbox.
We have a new remote support system in place. This is great news because it means if, for example, you are struggling to set up your e-mail account on your computer, we can now connect up, see your screen and set up the account for you. We have already been able to use it to help quite a few customers when they get stuck plus it's much quicker and easier than following written instructions.
As ever, all of the updates are included in the annual cost of your site i.e. there is no extra charge.

Brenley Farm is located in a beautiful area of Kent just outside of Faversham. They offer bed and breakfast in their historic farm house, wedding receptions in their vast grounds and for groups, there’s a bunk barn for BBQs and shared accommodation.
The family-run farm is a traditional in many senses - they still grow hops, vineyard apples and pears.
As an unusual twist, the farm also offers a B&B for horses for those wishing to stay over night with their equestrienne friends.
Children are catered for with large grounds to explore and climbing frames near the house.
Brenley’s new web site has a number of updates compared to their old one. The new site is mobile friendly and works perfectly on mobile phones, tablets and desktop computers.
The new ’Links’ page features larger images which link through to local attractions and restaurants, giving guests a chance to plan their visit in advance.
If you are in the Kent area, we highly recommend a visit to Brenley Farm - why not take a look for yourself?
Our gallery below shows some screenshots of the new site and one of the old web site. Take a look and if you would like to see the new site in action, you can visit Brenley Farm here.
