Friendly and good service

It is good for the company to build relationships with the customer because building a website would take time and a lot of communication. It is important for the customer to feel connected with the company and comfortable enough to express any concern just like a friend. When brainstorming on ideas for the website, they should be able to give their honest opinions about the ideas their customers have for them. They should be able to bring new ideas to the customer in case the customer has ran out or has no ideas. Even after the website is done up, the relationship should not stop there. But the web design company should do follow up as to how the customer and the business is doing.

Producing work that is up to standard

Most customers that approach a web design company have no knowledge of web design whatsoever so the web design company should be able to understand their ideas even though it is harder for them to express it.  The company should be able to do up a website based on the ideas and requests of the customer. Even if a request of the customer cannot be done, the company should be able to find an alternative and present it to the customer. The company should also be constantly updating the customer of the website’s progress and arrange for a meet up so that they can show the customer the progress of their website. I am sure the customers are curious as to how their website is coming along.

Able to meet stipulated deadlines

Not only is producing work up to standard, but also being able to get the work done on time is also key. Firstly, a customer has to understand that doing up a website takes time as there are a lot of discussions and changes that will occur. So therefore, always give the company sufficient amount of time to complete and there will always be slip ups here and there so a customer should be understanding and try to understand. However, the company will try their very best to do up the website by the certain time frame that was being agreed upon.If the company feels that they are unable to complete the website in the time frame that the customers want, they should voice it out instead of taking the challenge to try and complete the website according to the customer’s wants. The company should at least let the customer know beforehand rather than making the customer believe the company is able to produce the work according to his time.

Internet is running out of IP spaces

The internet is running out of room. The regulator in charge of issuing internet protocol (IP) addresses has warned that it will run out of the essential online monickers in less than two years. IP addresses are numerical codes that use four groups of figures between 0 and 255 to provide access to the internet for as many as 4 billion devices.

The past few years have seen a boom in the number of devices connecting to the internet as the cost of Web access has fallen. Equipment such as household appliances that can be controlled remotely through the internet have also contributed to the increasing demand for space on the Web.

Since the 1980s, the regulator has assigned IP addresses under a standard called IPv4, which is reaching its limit. Another standard, IPv6, is capable of providing a near-infinite number of Web addresses but has not been widely incorporated.

“Many decision makers don’t realise how many devices require IP addresses – mobile phones, laptops, servers, routers – the list goes on,” said Raul Echeberria, the secretary of the Number Resource Organisation.

“The number of available IPv4 addresses is shrinking rapidly, and if the global internet community fails to recognise this, it will face grave consequences in the very near future.”

The concern that is keeping IT managers up at night is that everything connected to the internet that uses IPv4 technology will be rendered obsolete as soon as it runs out of available connections.

An estimated 10 per cent of IP address capacity remains under the IPv4 standard. “It’s going to be a lot like what happened with the Y2K bug, except this time it’s real,” said Ahtram Pirzada, a support engineer for Al-Futtaim Technologies.

Mr Pirzada said that anyone owning electronic equipment that was not IPv6 compatible would have to upgrade it or replace it with new equipment. While the impact on the region’s IT budgets will be felt over the next two years, Mr Pirzada does not expect too many disruptions when IPv4 addresses have been exhausted.

“This won’t be too much of a problem because companies already have upgrade policies set in place that will get new devices that will be IPv6 compatible,” he said.

Microsoft ahead of Google & Yahoo in Total Time Spent Online

Despite all the benefits reaped by other companies, this will surely come as a surprise to some. Industry tracker comScore, Inc., last week released a study showing that, in terms of time spent on sites, the Redmond-based Microsoft sites ranked as the most engaging global property in September, followed by Google, Yahoo, and Facebook.

In second place were the statistics page of Google against Yahoo! and Facebook. According to comScore, Internet users spent 1.4 billion hours a community party, which gives about 193% higher than in September 2008.

Own research as a basis for the results of the comScore panel studies 2 million users in 170 countries, which shall then be converted into 1.2 billion Internet users aged 15 years or more who use it at home or at work. According to analysts in September, Internet users were on the net total of 27 billion hours. Of the time spent on Microsoft’s website, almost 70% to the Windows Live Messenger. Google Pages users have viewed some 2.5 billion hours, or 9.3% of total time, slightly less than half that time falls on video website YouTube.
