When it comes to managing your own website, many people upload images at the largest size and highest resolution, which results is slower page loads and that creates a large website that becomes problematic to backup, and restore if necessary. Backups become very large and can time-out, and restoring the website from a backup is […]
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for my customers on Shared Hosting, with Server issues and a percentage of downtime that I just wasn’t comfortable with. Not the ideal situation for a Website Owner. So this has prompted me to write this Blog Post. It is becoming increasingly clear to me that Budget Shared Hosting […]
At some stage in the hosting life cycle for Mission Critical websites, a time comes where a site owner can no longer accept the occasional ups and downs of a Shared Hosting platform. A fast, reliable and robust Hosting solution is required. A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is the next step up from Shared Hosting and […]
Uh oh, this isn’t good. It seems that for over two years there has been a SQL-injection vulnerability in the Joomla Platform (which is used in millions of websites) that will allow remote takeover hacks. SQL-injection vulnerabilities allow end users to execute powerful commands on a website’s backend database by entering “special” text in search boxes […]
You may not be aware, but if your website gets hacked, it will affect your search rankings. This is obvious when you think about it. Google’s main aim is to serve up the best results for the searcher’s query, and obviously, a hacked website is not the best result!! Google has announced that they will […]
I’m pleased to announce our much anticipated Website Revamp. I’ve spent the last two weeks designing, tweaking and generally re-doing everything to do with the website. It features an awesome Home Page “Layered” Slider, animated thumbnails and images, Testimonials and elegant styling. It is of course responsive, meaning that it will display on all different […]
My personal opinion is no, .COM and .COM.AU TLD’s (Top Level Domains) are not dead by a long shot. However, there are many prominent organistaions out there suggesting that they are going the way of the dinosaur and are dead and buried. There are a whole raft of new TLD’s now available. For example, .SYDNEY, .MARKET, .DENTIST, […]
There is a new security threat for website owners to contend with. Similar to Crypto-locker and other Ransomware, there is a new threat that will encrypt the core database files of a website. Dubbed “RansomWeb” by Security firm High-Tech Bridge, database files are encrypted, and an email is sent to the admin demanding the payment of a Ransom […]
So let’s start off by defining what “Domain Name Email” is. What I mean by this is using an email address that ends with your Domain Name. For example, email@example.com. Over the years I have seen plenty of businesses (even though they own a Domain Name and have a website), that continue to use either their […]
To put it simply, this is absolutely brilliant!!! I regularly have a need to create a WordPress Test Website for either customer development reasons, or to test theories and/or plug-in’s, and I usually do it in a sub-folder on one of my existing websites. This works fine, but there are implications. For one, there is […]
So just what is a VPS? VPS stands for “Virtual Private Server”, and as the name suggests, it is literally a Virtual Server or Virtual Web Host. In other words, it is a “Virtual Machine” on a Computer (a Server), provided by a Web Hosting Company. It is sometimes referred to as a Virtual Dedicated […]

I Have dealt with Iain for the past two years and have found him to be very professional, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Most importantly he is very prompt and will act immediately on all changes we require to our website. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an all round professional service.

I'm very pleased to be writing this review on Spotty Dog Computer Services. Firstly I cannot believe that such a talented web designer as Iain is a local, the web page he designed for me is out of this world and I still feel it's the best deal I've had.The after sales service is what I also like as Iain always makes himself available if I want changes done or things included and he always gives me good advice so I don't make any mistakes. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for quality, service and value for money, it ticks all the boxes for me. Eric Shields

We required a website that is reliable, easily managed and cost effective to set up and maintain. Iain provided the total package for our business. The website has met all of our requirements and expectations and has provided us with the opportunity to get on with running our business. Thanks for your help Iain.

Iain is the most professional upfront website person I’ve experienced. My Training, Website Services and Backup Support have often exceeded expectations and punctuality appears to be one of Iain’s specialties with 100% on time delivery. I highly recommend Spotty Dog Computer Services, a breath of fresh air in this dog eat dog industry. Caroline Berkeley – Sasiani African Safaris

After years of being scared of entering into the world of websites and the internet platforms we found Spotty Dog. What a lot of wasted anxiety. Iain has led us through the process so professionally effective and at no stress. We now have a totally modern and revitalised business.Thanks.

I had been wanting to get a website for our family business for a long time, but it seemed like such a dauting exercise. That was until I talked to Iain. He broke it down into easy manageable steps that took all the stress out. Now I have a website that I can add to and edit whenever I like.
