September 2, 2014, 11:50 am

LaSusa Law Offices Homepage ScreenshotOur custom-designed websites are the perfect solution for law firms looking for a fully functional, one-of-a-kind website. Our team worked with Larry LaSusa, Principal Attorney at LaSusa Law Offices, PLC, to create a great design that complied with the brand standards of his existing print work. 

After finalizing the design, our Content Developer, Sue worked one-on-one with Larry to port over his existing content from his old website as well as integrate new information for the resources page and create "searchable content" which helps website visitors find valuable information by being able to search by category. 

Once the new website launched, Larry received some great feedback from his existing clients; “looks great”; “easy to navigate”; “impressive”.

Visit www.lasusalaw.com to see the new site and learn about how LaSusa Law Offices can assist you with commercial litigation, corporate transactions, intellectual property, employment and labor and real estate matters.



Domain-based Email for Your Company

June 18, 2014, 5:11 pm

MailCompanies often spend thousands of marketing dollars branding themselves through web, print and other tools each year. Thinking big picture sometimes causes small and inexpensive opportunities to be overlooked, such as setting up domain-based email for you and your employees.

If you aren't familiar, domain-based email is simply having unique  email accounts using your company's domain name, such as johndoe@yourdomain.com. 

Many start-ups make the transition to business owner and bring along their personal email, which can be confusing or unprofessional. That's why setting up domain-based emails is so important. As your business and employees grow, the standard stays the same and email accounts like Info@youdomain.com or sales@yourdomain.com can be directed to the right employee.

Customer Spotlight : Villa Marine Bar & Grill

May 22, 2014, 11:47 am

The Villa Marine Bar & Grill has been a staple in Frankfort, MI since the 1940's and also a favorite destination for many Michiganders.

When we ran into owner, Jerry Hendrix at a company outing a few months ago, he expressed his interested in updating his website since most of the information on the website, including specials, hours and images were out of date. It was almost impossible for him to get ahold of his website administrator, so we set up a plan to come to the rescue! 

Villa Marine Bar & GrillWe were able to set the Villa Marine Bar & Grill up with a bytePages template website to keep costs down and incorporated the byteEditor Content Management System to give them the ability to control their own website content. This was massively important to them, seeing as customers often use the website as a guide to their menu, location and hours.

Heartbleed Defeated

April 14, 2014, 4:26 pm

HeartbleedBy now, you have most likely heard about the internet bug, Heartbleed, which has impacted a large number of companies on the web. Heartbleed affected the OpenSSL framework used by many online businesses to privately send data to and from internet servers. The attack could then leak information from the server’s memory, specifically the private key that is used for a website's secure certificate, and prevent your website from being secured.

We want to assure you that Byte Productions has taken the proactive actions to insure the integrity of our client's websites during this breach in security. Above and beyond the required upgrades to our servers, we are also reissuing secure certificates for our client's websites.  There is no charge associated with the reissue of the certificates, but it does involve an action on the client's part.  



The End of .TC Domains

March 24, 2014, 10:18 am

RIP .TCIf you live in Northern Michigan, you may have noticed the use of .TC for local domains. Many companies decided to purchase these domains and use them to reference an easy way to remember "Traverse City".  In reality, the .TC domain is the Internet country code for Turks and Caicos Islands. 

In 2013 a major dispute arose between AdamsNames, who used to run the .TC registry, and Meridian, the company who currently runs the registry. 

AdamsNames accused Meridian of attempting to hijack the registry, and is now warning the public against registering domain names with them. The dispute was documented on some domain name blogs in early 2013.

PharmAssist Homepage ScreenshotPharmAssist is a locally owned and operated Medicare education & retirement planning company based out of Traverse City, MI. PharmAssist represents over 30 insurance companies and saves their customers thousands of dollars annually in Medicare costs.

PharmAssist also had us set up domain-based e-mail for all of the employees (i.e. contact@pharm-assist.net). We offer all of our clients special rates on domain-based e-mails and even support set-up and maintenance. Please contact us for rates. 



National Cherry Festival Gets Fresh Look for 2014

March 12, 2014, 10:06 am

Although the countdown to the Cherry Festival has been ticking since July of last year. It somehow seems  closer and more relevant as the snow begins to melt and the first signs of Spring have erupted. 

113 days left. 

In the office this morning, talks of tent beer (drinking beer in a tent) were brought up. How we miss the festivals and activities and most of all one of our favorite summer events, The National Cherry Festival. 

Luckily for us, we get a taste of summer and cherries, working with the festival all year long. Whether it's providing event registration for the Leapin' Leprechaun or working on the website throughout the off season.
