  eShop PRO XL5 MultiShops v1 - Released
Posted by: webnetics - 31-03-09, 02:47 PM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

eShop Pro XL5 MultiShops is a major release to our eShop range of eCommerce software, adds a lot of new functionality, and further increases the power of eShop.

We find most online retailers try to serve all customers, all brands and all geographies with a single shop because it has been too difficult and expensive to manage multiple shops.

With eShop PRO XL5 MultiShops, this is no longer the case. You can now manage multiple shops - as many as your business requires - easily and inexpensively. Each eShop can have its own:

· Graphics, look and feel
· Navigation
· Product catalog & pricing
· Promotions
· Shipping options
· Checkout process

Common features such as categories, and products can be shared between shops to reduce setup and duplication.

Regardless of how you design your shops, administrators can manage all there shops for which they are authorised from. A single admin area and where you can work with customers and orders from any shop. You authorised individual users to access all shops or individual shops. So your staff can operate efficiently no matter how many shops you operate.

eShop PRO XL5 MultiShops was designed from the start with several specific architectural and security features to improve performance, simplify administration and optimise resource utilisation:


· All the features of eShop PRO XL5
· Product pricing group
· Product discounting group
· Create additional shops directly from the admin area with minimal involvement
· All shops can run on a single server
· All shops access a single database
· Sharing of catalog information between shops as you wish - each shop can have a
· Unique catalog or offer identical products at different prices etc.
· User permissions down to specific shops or catalogs
· Control all aspects of a shop's configuration including supported currencies, languages, accepted payment methods, taxes, shipping, search and navigation behaviour and more.

  .Tel Domain Name
Posted by: webnetics - 21-02-09, 11:14 AM - Forum: Latest News - No Replies

Set to become the industry standard for online communication

Businesses and individuals can now secure their own .Tel domain name at a premium fee of £88 for a 1 year subscription during what is known as the landrush period. With orders being treated on a first come first served basis, those who are serious about protecting their brand are urged to secure their .tel domain as early as possible.

The premium fee charged for the registration of a .tel in the landrush period (3 February - 23 March 2009) is due to the high costs the official .tel registry is charging in an attempt to discourage domain squatters from snapping up hundreds of .Tel domain names for resale purposes.

However, from March 23rd, the next stage of the .tel launch calendar (general availability) will commence and our price will drop to a round £14.95 to £24.00 for a one year registration! So, if you are willing to wait till the general availability period, you will find it tough to find an official .tel registrar offering .tel domain names cheaper.

What is a .tel domain name?

The .tel is a service that allows individuals and businesses alike to store and manage all their contact information and keywords directly in the DNS without the need to build, host or manage a website.

A .tel enables you to store, update and publish all your contact information, web links and keywords directly on the internet under your own unique domain name.

How is a .tel different than a normal domain name?

Before the .tel came around when a person wished to create a web presence they would register a domain name (such as a .com or .co.uk), and attach this domain name to web hosting. Once the content of the website had been created using a particular code such as HTML, the domain name owner would be able to publish their website information live.

With a .tel there is no need for hosting. You simply log-into a control panel and fill in your company or personal details into pre-defined forms. Once you press publish, your company details will be live and accessible on the web.

The .tel is a great way for business owners to create a web presence for their company online in a professional preformatted way. The process doesn’t require a large time commitment or any experience with web design. If you have ever filled out a form online, then you can get a .tel up and running in minutes.

  DNS Outage - January 10th 2009
Posted by: webnetics - 12-01-09, 03:14 PM - Forum: Network Status / Server Upgrades - No Replies

January 10th 2009

We had a DNS outage last night at 2:32 am. Although all of our servers were fully operational, when the DNS service went down, browsers were no longer able to identify our servers from your domain names, and this caused many websites to appear to be off-line. Many of our clients manage their own DNS records, or use an IT company to do it, and their websites continued to be available.

The problem was resolved early on Saturday morning by replacing the DNS server with a new server. All servers were re-started at 6:15 am on Saturday morning.

Technically our network retained 100% uptime last night, but we’re not going to hide behind that. If your website was unavailable last night we are happy to refund one month’s hosting to you. Just let us know. We guarantee 99.9% uptime per month and generally achieve 100%. We believe that as a result of last night’s outage some customers will have 99% uptime this month, and that is not acceptable to us.
