"Time can be an ally or an enemy. What it becomes depends entirely upon you, your goals, and your determination to use every available minute." -- Zig Ziglar
Performance, Security and Simplicity
A website has a life of its own. Managing a website can be a daunting task, if not done properly. From observing many different websites, the performance, security and simplicity are affected by its hosting location.
- For simple hosting, we recommend Digital Ocean, eBoundHost, Linode or WPEngine.
- For data extensive website, utilizing Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Storage, Pantheon or Rackspace may be your best solution
In any case, Goldlilys Media will fine-tune every part of your hosting server (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP [LAMP stack], server configurations) so that your website is up 99.9% of the time.
If your business/organization sells products or services and requires an E-commerce site, Goldlilys Media recommends to:
- Include SSL and additional security added to your server
- Setup Norton Secured Seal and/or McAfee Server Virus Scanner to protect your customers as well as your business from identity theft, fraud, viruses, and other online threats
Apart from having a fast and secure website, we aim to maintain updates as simple and flexible as possible. Have you ever heard of the rule "if it takes more than 2 clicks to get something done, most people prefer to leave"? We want to avoid more than 2 clicks, attract new customers and make your life simpler. Who doesn't want a simple and happy life?
Does your website still reflect who you were when you first started your business or have a lot of things changed?
“People's behavior makes sense if you think about it in terms of their goals, needs, and motives” - Thomas Mann
What is your name? Where were you born and raised? Do you speak multiple languages? How many siblings do you have?
How do you prepare every morning? What kind of clothes do you wear? How do you style your hair? How do you accessorize?
How did you arrive at where you are? What do you love to do? Who influenced you? Why did you decide to become you?
"Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge” – Plato
Whenever you take action, you made a decision. Decisions come from choices or options that are present at that given time. But what made those options available in that moment? The answer is human behavior.
"A great business has to have a conscience. You have to know who you are and who you are not." - Howard Schultz
How do you define who you are? How do you differentiate yourself from whom you are not? How do you show who you are to others and what do you want others to learn from you and your business?
“Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.” – Ellen Degeneres
Holidays are a time when families get together, share food, laughter and fun. There are festive traditions like celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas which are examples of positive traditions that keep family bonds strong. However, not all traditions are positive especially if they go against the changing times.
