Our first installment in the ‘Meet Our Customers‘ series features one of our oldest (and we hope, happiest!) customers, Whitespace Publishers Ltd. Based in Boston in Lincolnshire, Whitespace produces a variety of publications including Lincolnshire Bride and Groom, The Skeggy Guide and their flaghsip publication, Lincolnshire Pride.
Whitespace has been hosting with simplewebhosting.co.uk since 2001 and have also made great use of our web design service to manage the creation and day to day running of their flagship magazine’s web presence.
Managing Editor, Robin Davis demands the absolute best service when it comes to their company website. “Our advertisers need to know that their online presence is available 24/7 enabling them to maximise their return on investment.”
“simplewebhosting.co.uk have proved themselves as experts when it comes to reliability. We just don’t experience the problems we’ve seen with other, much larger web hosts and the freephone technical support is amazing!”
With a team of 20 staff accessing e-mail constantly throughout the day and from around the county using mobile devices, reliability is key.
“Advertising and editorial copy is dropping into our mailbox constantly and, as in any publishing industry, deadlines are critical. simplewebhosting.co.uk ensures our office is never without service.”
Functionality is brilliant; our website doesn’t just work well but it looks great too which is important for a magazine that prides itself on exceptional design. Despite having no internal web design staff, we can still have a site that mataches the quality of our magazine in terms of feature set and development.”
Robin goes on to say “To me the best thing about simple web hosting is that we can create and manage our own e-mail addresses and that we have a good looking, editorially-rich site which we can easily content manage that provides us with multiple revenue streams.”
