1. Who are you sharing your server with? (29 April 2009)

Affordable hosting is normally offered as a "Virtual Hosting Service" or a "Virtual Server". That means that you are not actually renting a computer but merely a fixed amount of space on a shared server. Sharing a server with unknown other people or businesses can have serious consequences for your web-site: 1. search engines might kick out your site if someone else on the server is doing things that the search-engine does not allow, like spamming or offering adult content; 2. you might end up on mail blacklists if someone else on the server is sending out spam; 3. your web-site could become very hard to reach if someone else on the server is using a big part of its capacity, like offering downloads of large files or running memory or processor intensive programs; 4. your account or web-site could become compromised if other people have high-level access on the server; 5. inexperienced people could write programs that could potentially hang the server or compromise its security. Or transform it, although unwillingly, in a spam server, leading to points 1 and 2. Apart from what is happening on the server itself, it is also important where the server is located. A server connected to the backbone of the Internet in the US or Europe will serve pages a lot faster than a server located in Cusco, Peru, especially if the visitor is also located somewhere near that same backbone. Jeronimo Design DDS uses dedicated servers that are located in the United States. We are always monitoring what is happening on these servers and we are very selective about who we allow on them and even more selective when it comes to access. That way our clients can be assured that the above problems will never occur. Our clients are serious businesses, ranging from embassy's and psychologists to the tourism industry and hospitals. A reliable, high-end hosting service is a vital part of their business.

2. Design using css (30 October 2008)

Although it is not visible when a page is opened, there are two different ways to develop a page on the Internet:

1. Design using tables
2. Design using cascading style sheets, css

Pages developed either way can appear the same to the visitor, but technically and for the search-engines there is a big difference.

It is bad practice to design a modern web-page using tables: Tables make a page a lot bigger than it should be and it is very difficult to change the design afterwards. It is also more difficult for the search-engines to find the content of the page. Using cascading style sheets to develop web-pages avoids these problems.

A web-page designed using css consists of blocks of information, for example a block with the header, a block with the menu, a block with the main contents and a block containing the footer. An external css file dictates how these blocks should be presented. In this way, the content and the design are separated: The web-page itself contains pure content that is very useful to the search-engines and the design can be changed easily in the future by changing the external css file.

There are still many Internet development companies in Peru making web-sites using tables, but for the development of a modern web-site it is important to insist on css. All web-sites developed the last couple of years by Jeronimo Design DDS use css for the design.

4. Content Management Systems for the tourist industry (20 March 2007)

One of the newest products of Jeronimo Design DDS is the content management system for the tourist industry. Using this system, our clients can manage a great part of their web-sites themselves. As our basis is in Cusco and new services and tours are developed here every day, the need arose for a system where our clients can change existing programmes or add new ones without the interference of Jeronimo Design, assuring that the information they offer is always up-to-date.

The basic systems consists of two parts, locations and products (tours / services). Additionally, another module can be added: hotels. All parts are accompanied with photos which can be added, replaced or deleted by our clients themselves.

LOCATIONS
The locations are basically the destinations a tour operator or travel agent offers. They can vary from specific cities to departments / provinces or even countries or continents. As locations are added to the system, they can be selected in the other part of the system, the products.

PRODUCTS
Products is a wide description of the tours, services or complete programmes a tour operator or travel agent offers. According to the specifications of our client, the system is adapted to offer different types of information, from summaries to complete itineraries or fixed departures lists.

More information can be found on our own web-site:

  1. Who are you sharing your server with? (29 April 2009)

    By Jeroen de Bruin

    There are several types of web-site hosting / web servers, ranging from a few dollars to several hundreds of dollars per month to rent. They come with extensive lists of features, numbers, supported systems, etc. For most people and businesses that just need their web-site hosted and their mail managed, those numbers and features do not mean much and to make an good decision about what kind of service to use, these numbers do not even tell the whole story. One of the most important questions about a hosting service is: Who are you sharing your server with?

  6. Jeronimo Design DDS Launched (21 July 2005)

    By Jeroen de Bruin

    In order to offer it's clients a dynamic and always up-to-date web-site, Jeronimo Design has introduced database driven systems. The idea is that you, your client or both have the possibility to add, modify or delete information on your web-site, depending on your needs and given permissions.<br />
    <br />
    A well-known example is the guest book found on many sites. A visitor - a former client of yours for example - writes a story concerning your services and you have the possibility to add or delete these stories.<br />
    <br />
    Modular Design<br />
    <br />
    All products offered by Jeronimo Design DDS are designed as separate modules and can be inserted in your web-site easily. Because of the modular design - all modules are blocks, ready to be inserted in your web-site - the costs are low. However, according to your needs, we can also develop a system specifically for you.<br />
    <br />
    Whether your original site was designed by Jeronimo Design or not does not matter. The only requisite is that the site is hosted by Jeronimo Design in order to be able to access the underlying databases.<br />
