“Your self-image is your pattern! Every thought has an activity visualized. Every activity belongs to a pattern. You identify with your pattern or thought. Your patterns lead your life.” – J. G. Gallimore
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, Hostgator, or Linode.
- 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?
“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
“I believe that every human being endowed with intelligence, memory, and strength of character bears within him a little of the supernatural as well. The highest purpose of the conductor is to release this superhuman potential in every one of his musicians.” - Charles Munch
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” – Albert Einstein
What is simple? Is there a magical activity that allows simplicity to happen? Why are there some people who make complex tasks simple while others make simple tasks complicated? How does simplicity happen?
“History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illuminates reality, vitalizes memory, provides guidance in daily life, and brings us tidings of antiquity.” - Marcus Tullius Cicero
No one can change the past and no one can predict the future. The only thing we can control is what we do now. Therefore, humans creatively invented a way to bring back the past into the present when something might go wrong in the future. This invention is called saving data, documents or files and putting them into memory.
“All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.” - Philip Johnson
While an architecture becomes the shelter for family and friends, a website becomes the home for your business's daily events, products or services, philosophy, growth and changes.
