Communication is perhaps the most important aspect of any business. One provider
managing all the essentials saves frustration, time and money.
3DK provisions ADSL connections throughout Australia.
Many broadband adverts tell you how fast their broadband service is. Speed is
important, but we want to focus on an equally important part of ADSL provision:
responsive and helpful customer support.
Domain Name Management
Domain names are the addresses you type into your browser to visit particular
Email also relies on domain names to work. Once you have a domain name, it is
short work to create your own email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. This
has many advantages for branding and professional communications. Many people
register domain names purely to have their own email address instead of relying
on Hotmail, Gmail or any other generic service.
Owning a domain name is a crucial first step in launching your business on the
internet. Domain name management is often overlooked, treated as insignificant
and a minor management issue.
Yet mismanagement has the potential to bring websites and emails crashing down.
3DK unpicks the things you need to know about domain names and crucially, about
Email hosting services are mostly utilised by businesses that rely on custom
email addresses that match the name of their company website domain. They allow
users to create a variety of email types that utilise the same trailing address.
Why should I pay for email hosting when there are free email services
like hotmail available?
Having your own business branded email is essential for any business regardless
of its size. Think about it, you wouldn’t invoice or write to your customers on
another company’s letterhead, so why should you use an ISP email address (such
as Hotmail or Gmail) to contact your customers?
Networking is the practice of linking two or more computing devices together for
the purpose of sharing data. Networks are built with a mix of computer hardware
and computer software.
What advantage is Networking?
Cloud Computing - Rather than owning the servers that
operate a computer network, many 3DK clients now take advantage of servers owned
and operated by 3DK. This is "cloud computing," since the actual hardware is not
at your location, neither are you burdened with the cost and time involved
in maintaining the hardware and software. An example of cloud computing many
people are familiar with is email, which is often stored off-site and can be
accessed from just about any computer. This kind of network is extremely
cost-effective, since 3DK bears the actual hardware, software and updating costs.
Internet - One of the most obvious savings to be found
with computer networking is the ability to have several computers use the same
Internet connection: saving costs on access to the world wide web. This takes
place through either a router or a network server. The router sends the Internet
traffic through either wireless connections or through Ethernet cables.
Hardware - Networking also allows computers on the
network to share various hardware components. If you have three computers that
are not on a network and you wanted to print something out, each computer would
need to have its own printer, or you would need to connect the printer to one
computer at a time to do the printing. A computer network lets all three
computers share the same printer without additional cost.
Remote Access - Employees of a business who belong to
a computer network can gain secure access from remote locations [only with
senior approval]. An employee can access
important data at any time via the computer network and can instantly share that
data with everyone else on the network, enabling work to be accomplished more
efficiently. At the same time, if you have a database of customer information on
your central network location, several people can access the database in order
to provide customer service simultaneously.
Software - When a program is purchased and installed
on a computer, it uses a single license. However, when a computer network buys
the program, it involves the purchase of multiple licenses simultaneously, which
usually carries substantial savings. In addition, computers on a network can
have downtime reduced for updates when one central location does the updating
for the various computers in the network.
