Thousands of Business Websites Go Down - Get Premium Hosting Now

Thousands of business websites have gone down today due to an administrative error, making it more important than ever to use a premium, business class domain name service for your company website.

Tech news blog, the Register are reporting that Talk Talk have apparently let a domain name used by thousands of people lapse. The ukgateway.net domain name was acquired by Talk Talk when they bought up UK Gateway, a company that provided websites for both businesses and personal use on the ukgateway.net domain name.

As the Register says:
“Those sites probably haven't gone altogether, but without the Domain Name Server entries which turn written addresses into IP numbers they are inaccessible.”

Here at Toolkit Websites, we host our websites on our top notch website hosting service that has seen 99.99% uptime over the last 10 years. We also have an automated domain name administration process to ensure that domain names within our administrative control do not expire.

Make sure your company website doesn't go down. Talk to us today about getting a premium online business presence on 02380 633644.

A Toolkit Websites Bear


We create websites for a range of businesses. Plumbers, lawyers, travel companies, there's very few sectors we've not worked in over the years.

Every now and again, we get to make a website for a slightly more unusual business. This month, we're wrapping up the new website for Family Tree Bears, run by Chris Elliot. Family Tree Bears are individually crafted characters for the collector, coming with unique clothing and a family history.

Chris is really pleased with our service, and sent us a miniature one of her bears as a thank you. So without further ado, we'd like to introduce our Toolkit Websites bear, Rosie, named by one of our project managers, Cat.

Here's Chris' take on her Toolkit Websites experience:
"I don`t see how you could improve! have been impressed by how friendly and helpful everyone I`ve spoken to has been (Jack, Alex, Barnaby) Great, personal support and interest in my site from all staff."

Local Spotlight : Jamies Computers

As a proud Southampton based business, Toolkit Websites is always looking to work with other local businesses.

Not surprisingly, as a website design company, we get through a fair bit of computer hardware over time. At the moment we're trying out a range of keyboards in the office to find out the best one for our needs, and of course things wear out over time as well.

So what do we do with the out of date computer hardware? Well, in-line with our company policy on trying to be as green as possible, we were pleased to hear about the IT disposal service offered by Jamie's Computers.

Part of the Society of St James, a charity that provides housing, care and support to homeless and vulnerable people in Southampton, Jamie's Computers offers IT disposals, training and refurbishments.

For us, the disposal service is perfect. Our older equipment goes off to help enable Jamie's computers to create work based training and voluntary opportunities for vulnerable people. They'll even come and collect your hardware for you, saving you a trip out the office.

So if you're a business looking to recycle your old IT equipment, why not get in touch with Jamie's Computers?
