The Business Server requires a dedicated computer on your
premises, no keyboard or monitor is required. Once installed you will
have a complete domain, firewall, proxy server, ftp server, web
server, email hosting and access to your computers from
anywhere on the internet.
The BServer provides
the following services:
- Proxy Server
- FTP Server
- Web Server
- EMail Server
- Access your
Computers from anywhere
Monitoring of the BServer
We supply all BServer
software, this is included in the monthly fee.
In applying for a Domain Name normally you would
have to pay a registration fee and an annual renewal fee. With the
BServer we arrange for one Domain Name registration and it won't cost
you anything at all. Having your own domain name will provide you with
Without your own domain name, you don't have much
of a choice; your email and web addresses will generally be based on
the domain name of your host or Internet service provider, such as
username@yourISP.com. But having your own domain name is like owning
your own virtual real estate; your own slice of cyber turf, if you
will. Such exclusivity can help build name recognition for you and your
As the saying goes: "You never get a second chance
to make a first impression", and in business, first impressions count.
Having your own domain name projects a professional image of you and
your company, normally associated with large companies. It tends to say
to others that you're a serious business person, operating an
established business, in a professional manner.
As mentioned above, if you set up a web site
without owning your own domain name, you end up using the domain name
of your web host (ISP) by default. Such a web address is not mobile;
you can't take it with you if you ever decide to switch to another web
host (ISP). Ownership of your own domain name gives you the option of
moving your web site to another host without losing your web address.
You can pull up stakes at any time and take your domain name with you.
Avoids Loss of Momentum
It takes effort to promote a web site.
Fortunately, over time, some of those marketing efforts can build
momentum, bringing more and more traffic to your site without
additional marketing effort. But unfortunately, if you can't take your
web address with you when you switch to another ISP or host, you can
lose much - if not all - of the momentum gained by your previous web
marketing efforts. Having the option to move your web site to another
host without losing your web address is always a good one to have
available. Domain name ownership gives you that option, and any
momentum you've gained from previous efforts involved in promoting your
web site doesn't go down the drain.
Fully configured Firewall, specific ports can be
opened on client's request.
Your Physical Network and DATA Security is of
extreme importance to the survival of your company. Without a Firewall
your company network and data will be vulnerable to attacks from
hackers who may be trying to steal sensitive data, usernames and
passwords. Firewalls watch over your ports for anything suspicious. The
BServer controls access to and from your network, making sure your
company network is not being attacked or your data is being stolen.
Commercial Firewall software on its own, is expensive to purchase, we
include a firewall in the monthly rental.
3. Proxy Server
Bandwidth monitoring, block web sites, cache
frequently used web sites.
The proxy server ensures security, administrative
control and caching. The BServer can restrict individual user
bandwidth, monitor connections to the internet and block unwanted web
browsing. Caching speeds up Internet access for frequently accessed web
4. FTP Server
Fully Functional FTP Server to upload and download
files using the FTP service. You will now be able to supply your
clients with FTP access allowing them to download or upload larger
5. Web Server
Client can run their own web
site (no web hosting fees)
You host your own Web Server which means you have
direct access to it on your own local network without having to connect
to your ISP to administer your website. The only space limitations you
have are those set by your own BServer Hardware. You can also run your
Web Server from another machine and still use the BServer Firewall to
The advantages of having your
At a minimum, your products or services will get
more exposure. Your web site can be your online brochure. If a
potential customer phones up and wants information, all you have to do
is give them your website address. You don't have to courier the
information to them, or post it, or fax them a black and white copy.
When a potential customer goes to your website,
they'll get your information in full colour available 24 hours a day,
seven days a week.
You can educate your customers, you can have
articles, you can have comparisons to competition, you can have links
to resources to back up your claims, you can have real video or audio
to present your information... the list just goes on.
In essence, you need a Website in order to:
- increase your sales
- decrease your expenses and
- expand your market.
There are no ifs, buts or maybes about it ... it
doesn't matter what your offline business is, you should have a website!
6. EMail Server
Unlimited users - do not pay
Most ISPs will give you a limited amount of email
addresses and mailbox space for your business. The BServer however
allows you to have unlimited email addresses, aliases and, mailbox
space is only limited by how much hard disk space you have available.
Anti-Virus For EMail
All emails are checked for viruses at the BServer.
Virus definitions are automatically downloaded and
updated on the BServer every hour to provide maximum security for your
network. Every incoming and outgoing email is scanned for viruses.
Avoid computer downtime and loss of productivity because of a virus
Filters out 99% of all Spam
Spam is unsolicited e-mail on the Internet. From
the sender's point-of-view, it's a form of bulk mail, often to a list
culled from subscribers to a Usenet discussion group or obtained by
companies that specialize in creating e-mail distribution lists. To the
receiver, it usually seems like junk e-mail. In general, it's not
considered good netiquette to send Spam. It's
generally equivalent to unsolicited phone marketing calls except that
the user pays for part of the message since everyone shares the cost of
maintaining the Internet.
