Updates and upgrades
Updates, Upgrades and Tweaks… Oh My!
Since August, RVHWD has been working on some major updates and upgrades behind the scenes. This third major milestone has been mostly focused on security concerns such as the entire RVHWD website now uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to keep all information exchanged between customer computers and the RVHWD web servers, private and secure. But that required going back through all of the web pages on the RVHWD website and re-coding quite a bit of content as well as making changes to the now live secure client area.
Also, as you visit some of the older blog posts and articles, you may see a browser warning that not all of the content on those pages is secure. This is in reference to the images mostly that have been used throughout those nearly 200 articles and we are working on getting that fixed soon too. However, it should be noted that this is a very low security risk and all elements that would exchange information such as comment forms, transaction-based content, etc. are all in fact, secure. But we are working back through all of those articles and making the necessary changes to secure all of that content. And of course all new published content will already be completely secure.
Most important of all is the new client area going live! Finally!!! After more than a few months of pulling our hair out, more than a few sleepless nights and so on, we now have the secure client area live and well… secure. This includes the addition of a payment gateway that will manage all forms of payments as well as offering customers more tools to easily manage their web hosting accounts. But that’s not all – the new gateway will also handle all invoicing starting in 2017 as well as giving customers additional options for requesting services. Currently we are working on the branding of the client area and gateway so that it is a seamless experience for our valued customers.
But wait, that’s not all!
RVHWD is also going through a major shift in services too! Starting very soon, we will be focusing more on the digital marketing aspect as there is a huge need for expertise in this area. Yes, RVHWD will still provide web hosting services. Yes, RVHWD will still provide web development services too. But with the proliferation of web hosting and web design services out there, the one thing that is still very much lacking are agencies that can actually deliver measurable results in marketing and sales. Do you want more customers?
