Protect an oft overlooked IT asset: Your business domain name

Though you may not realize it, your business domain name is an incredibly important asset. It tells people where your website is on the internet, where company emails are delivered to, and where they originate from.

Many big companies, including even Microsoft, have inadvertently failed to renew their domain names. This can cause your business website to go down, email can stop flowing, and – worst case scenario – another party could take possession of your domain name!

The obvious lesson: Don’t neglect your domain name(s). Specifically, here are a few best practices:

  • Be certain that there is more than one person at your company responsible for registering and renewing domain names and keep the login user name and password for your registrar secure.
  • Confirm your “whois” domain name registration details regularly.
  • Renew critical domain names for lengthy periods of time – not just year-to-year. You can even purchase/renew domain names for 10-year periods.
  • Use a reputable domain name registrar.
  • Take advantage of your registrar’s auto-renewal options and ensure that payment information is kept up to date.
  • Be sure that the e-mail contacts for your registration are valid and don’t use only email addresses associated with the domain name itself.

Let us know if you have any questions and please take a moment right now to ensure you are master of your domain. : )

windows 8Howdy Folks,

OneClickFix would like to take some time to talk about Windows 8. Here are some bullet points about Windows 8 you should know:

  • We do NOT recommend getting Windows 8 for business at this time.  We have found there is a bit of a learning curve to the new Metro style interface. There are also some bugs that need to be addressed. We don’t want to say it is the new Vista but, well, it is the new Vista. Remember those fun times? :)
  • Microsoft’s goal with Windows 8 is to try and tie together their Windows 8 desktop and Windows 8 Phone/Surface Table with backend cloud services to have a more unified experience. The drawback is that the OS is definitely geared towards phone/tablet operation at the sacrifice of the desktop experience we all are familiar with.
  • We do recommend at the minimum that you wait until Service Pack 1 for Windows 8 is released.
  • We are finding it increasingly difficult to purchase computers without Windows 8 but not impossible. Please get OneClickFix involved with new computer purchases.
  • Good news is that Windows 8 can run legacy versions of all the software you currently use on Windows XP and 7.
  • NOTE: There are two Major versions of Window 8! Windows 8 Pro and Windows 8 RT (aka their new Phone and “Surface” which is their Tablet)
  • Windows 8 RT (Surface) can NOT run your office applications. It can only run Windows 8 apps.

If you can’t wait and absolutely MUST have Windows 8, please talk with us and at least watch this tutorial before getting started: www.youtube.com

Sincerely,

Your friends at OneClickFix

imageWithout question, there have been a lot of changes in technology in the last decade. One of the biggest improvements has been the increase in availability of inexpensive, high-speed internet bandwidth for small and mid-sized businesses.

In the recent past, businesses had a choice of either painfully slow and unreliable DSL or marginally faster and much more expensive T1 lines for their high-speed internet. Then, not long ago, a third choice became available as cable providers began offering high-speed internet as well, assuming their cable was already laid in your office building.

Fast forward to just a few years ago when Ethernet Over Copper arrived on the scene. Ethernet Over Copper, offered by many internet providers in the Bay Area, is now one of the most reliable and fastest types of high-speed internet access for small and mid-sized businesses today. Not only is it much faster and more dependable than DSL, cable, and old-style T1 lines, you will be surprised to learn that in many cases, it is actually cheaper!

You may want to take a look at your businesses phone bill or internet bill to see how much you are paying. In one case, we found one of our clients was paying over $900 a month for a 1.5Mpbs T1 line they had installed several years ago. $900!!! They simply had been paying the bill all this time and never questioned if there was a better alternative out there.

We advised them to cancel the outdated 1.5Mbps T1 and move to a 3Mpbs Ethernet Over Copper internet connection at less than one third the price. When all was said and done, they doubled their internet speed and cut their monthly bill by over 70%!

Contact OneClickFix today to see if we can save you money on your monthly internet bill. At OneClickFix we LOVE faster internet for cheaper prices and we know you will too. We have relationships with the most reputed phone and internet providers in the Bay Area and can get you the lowest price on your high-speed internet. Quit overpaying and call us today!
