Migrating Email

Moving email services between providers is by far the most complex and critical task we face as a web host.

This is a quick post to highlight a useful online tool that can be used to move IMAP email from one server to another.

It’s called Imapsync online, created by Gilles LAMIRAL and it can be found at https://i005.lamiral.info/X/

It’s not suitable for keeping two “live” accounts in sync, but for our purposes should be used, after the email has been pointed at our servers, and you need to ensure your old email is not lost when your old provider turns off the service.

The other option is simply to drag and drop folders in your desktop email software from the old account to the new account. This is perfectly fine but you do need to ensure you copy all the folders and don’t miss any.

March SSL Offer

Avoid a Search Engine penalty with our March Offer

Google have confirmed they will begin penalising websites that are not using SSL later this year. This applies to all websites, even if they do not collect any user data. It’s therefore recommended that you purchase SSL for your website.

For the month of March 2018, 2020Media is offering a full SSL 12 month certificate from trusted authority Globalsign for the exclusive price of £32.50+vat (2 years for £65+vat).

Use the link below to apply for your new SSL certificate, or contact us.
The offer is not limited to one site, you can order as many new SSL certificates as you wish, and they can be for one or two years. Due to the terms of our arrangement with Globalsign to bring you this offer, renewals are not included in this offer.

What’s involved?

We aim to make it as easy as possible – we will take care of the application process, setting up SSL hosting, putting in a redirect from non-SSL to SSL on your site, and running updates on your code to convert links to SSL within the site.

Is it really necessary?

Of course the choice is up to you – if you are not taking bookings or collecting user data, then the risk of any problems is really very low. Google say they are taking this step because: “Aside from providing critical security and data integrity for both your websites and your users’ personal information, HTTPS is a requirement for many new browser features”.
So ultimately I believe we will see a global secure web in the next year or so. SSL authorities may see this as a chance to increase prices, so our advice is to act now and be part of the 50% of the web that is now using SSL

How To Ask Your Clients For Google + Business Reviews

Many of your clients or customers are likely to be very busy people so if they’re going to take the time out of their day to write you a review you need to make it as easy for them as possible. The best way you can do this is by giving them a simple link to click on that will take them straight to your Google My Business page. There used to be a really simple way to do this but with the recent updates Google has made to Google My Business this is now slightly more convoluted.
