We Are Growing

It’s an exciting time at Dogsbody Technology. After a couple of years of working from home we’ve decided to move into an office.  And a very nice office it is too. Our new address is: Dogsbody Technology Ltd. 377 – 399 London Road, Camberley, Surrey GU15 3HL We’ve moved into Basepoint Camberley which offers serviced […]

ISO27001 Certification

  We are often asked to make sure we source servers or products from companies that are ISO27001 (or ISO9001) certified.  While it’s good to have a stamp to prove that a company has attained a level of standard I feel there is often confusion over what this certification means. Luckily, Alec Muffett, a friend […]

There is Jelly in the Cloud

  Dogsbody Technology is a home run businesses.  We don’t have offices to tie us down and can work anywhere we wish.  While this is great for getting work done it does get a little lonely sometimes. For the last year we have attended Berkshire Jelly, a co-working meetup in Crowthorne where people that work […]

Servers have reputations too

Many have compared the Internet to the wild west.  While there may well be cowboys it is certainly true that your server is viewed by the company that it keeps.  It seems that people spend a lot of time looking after their own online reputation and very little looking after the reputation of their infrastructure.

Buzzword Bingo

As happens when you are a company registered on social media sites we occasionally get sent invites to advertise on their networks. We’ve always been proud to receive most of our business via referrals and word of mouth but when LinkedIn offers you $100 of free advertising it seems silly to say no. The results […]

Mobile websites

Just as half the internet is still trying to get online it seems that the other half has decided that computers are old and mobile is the future. As always, it’s a compromise.  Most companies do still need a “base” website but mobile is definitely growing and by having a dedicated mobile presence you can […]

All a Twitter

What is it they say about the best laid plans… 🙂 It seems that around 20 of our Twitter followers have disappeared! While it seems like you are following us, you may not see our tweets and you do not show up in our list of followers.  If this is you then please just go […]

It doesn’t always have to be .com

In some ways the internet is very crowded (100 million active websites) and in other ways very quiet (most web traffic is caused by few sites) but it’s important to remember that the internet is pretty much limitless and there is more than one way to claim your acre of land online. When first creating […]
