Encode and I had a very useful discussion about Wordpress and related issues at no cost to myself. He gave me some very helpful information and answered the questions I had.

I learnt quite a lot! Thank you.

I am very excited to work again with Neil. His attention to detail is second to none. I have seen his work in action in the past and he is great. I love his calm approach and his patient guidance to non-tech people like me. I would highly highly reccommend him!

Neil is the best! He has sorted out all our business emails and everything runs a great deal better now. Website issues are now a thing of the past as Neil has introduced a maintenance programme to ensure the site is always working optimally and any content changes are actioned pretty much immediately.

Highly recommended!!

'Encode' provided my hosting and domain transfers. They were able to deal with the technicalities of the transfer in a particularly speedy manner, taking all the worry of the transfer, domain issues DNS and nameserver headaches as well as the migration. A couple of emails, and phone call meant it was done smoothly, swiftly and efficiently. All I can say is I'm really please they were recommended to me. Thank you
