Advanced content management systems tailored to your exact requirements

 

Whether you are looking for a large e-commerce website or a brochure website, our website development team have created advanced content management systems to suit all needs allowing you to easily update your website without the need for any technical knowledge, from any computer with internet access and without installing any software. You can update page content, change or upload new images, add interactive content such as video and upload documents for your visitors and choose calls to action to drop in to individual pages. For our e-commerce web development clients, we use shop management systems to take your business forward. This gives you the ability to keep other core content management and shop administration functions.

 

Our development team are able to code your CMS in any language whether ASP, .NET or PHP. This allows us to provide robust and flexible systems, future proofing your website and your business. Being fluent in any coding language allows us to work on any content management system or web development project whether customising our own in house systems or some of the many off the shelf systems including Drupal, WordPress, Magento, Expression Engine nopCommerce or Kentico.

Premium hosting solutions that won’t let you down

 

Many digital agencies offer a hosting solution and many of them provide an adequate service, but adequate is never good enough at Purple Gazelle.

 

Redundant Everything

Having the physically redundant computers is great for ensuring the servers themselves are active and working, but what about the software that powers your website?

Computers are faulty, it’s a fact of life that cannot be avoided for the foreseeable future, and while you can mitigate this as much as possible by having talented engineers around to configure them, bad things are going to happen. With this in mind we ensure all of our major functionality is at least once redundant, with a single backup for every service we run. DNS and Mail are all shared across two servers, allowing for a software fault in either to not take down the other. Database services are also provided by a redundant cluster of servers that can suffer from catastrophic failure and still keep your data flowing.

 

Backup, Backup and Backup Again

As the old saying goes; You can never have too many backups. Ok, there is no saying like that, but there should be.

Our backup solution allows us to take backups throughout the day and maintain data on cycle. We temporarily store these backups for 24 hours to allow for emergency disaster recovery, as well as taking the industry standard daily backups stored on a 7 day cycle. As an extra level of security a weekly backup is taken and archived for 30 days. That’s three separate backups to ensure your data is always protected.

 

Monitor all the things

No matter how resilient our systems are you can never account for everything. Many of the elements of the internet are out of our control, such as root DNS servers and the massive fiber networks that run most of the internet. So if something goes wrong we need to know about it; and with this in mind we run a dedicated monitoring platform at several international locations. Every 5 minutes your website will be checked by at least two geographically disparate servers for a healthy response and will notify our senior technicians immediately via text message and email if any kind of problem is detected. This ensures no matter the time or nature of the issue we will know about it before anyone else. As well as monitoring the state of our websites, our monitoring service also checks performance and reports back to us the speed and response times of each site. These are checked on a weekly basis to ensure all of our sites are performing well and responding in a timely fashion. Any issues with a site are immediately past to our experienced development team to analyse and fix.
