A detail often overlooked by many companies is DNS or Domain Name System – which typically is handled by your ISP (Internet Service Provided – ex. AT&T, Charter, etc). Sorry for all of the acronyms everyone!
The problem with DNS that is provided by ISPs is that they are slow, they do not update as regularly as others, and typically do not provide services such as web content filtering, anti-phishing, malware site protection, and other services.
As of 2009, JB Systems has recently adopted the use of OpenDNS – a FREE service provided by OpenDNS.com. With a couple of minor changes to your DNS settings (yes, even all you techno-phobes can change this too!) you can browse the web faster, safer, and more reliably.
For a list of features and reasons to consider OpenDNS – see the following link:
For steps on how to get started, see this link (use the link for OpenDNS Free):
Just another tip from JB Systems. Stay in touch.
If you’re looking for an E-commerce solution – look no further than JB Systems. Our state-of-the-art e-commerce solution integrates not only with over 30 merchant account providers, but we’ve recently unlocked the power of UPS Worldship – allowing “2 Click” integration. What does this mean? Simple – when your website takes in an order – you’re emailed a confirmation receipt (as well as the customer). That receipt has an invoice number. When it comes time to ship – simply open up UPS Worldship and enter the invoice number from the receipt. Our solution will “talk” directly with our database (housed on JB servers) and fill in ALL OF THE SHIPPING INFORMATION for you. Now that’s time saved!

In our quest of unveiling new technologies, this time around using jQuery- we’d like to steer to you RainMaster Lawn Systems. The use of a new jQuery library allowed us to add some PIZAZZ to their customer testimonials page.
Notice how the testimonials take precedence over everything once you click the “View Testimonials” button. Convenient “left” and “right” arrows allow you to “step through” the different images (way cool hand-written testimonials).

For our blog submission this week, I’d like to spend a moment on jQuery. This newest addition to our arsenal of website development tools allows for some nice interactivity for our clients’ websites and their prospective visitors.
