We issued a statement to our clients in mid-March outlining our strategy for dealing with the situation regarding COVID-19. 

Our concise plan shows how we plan to minimise direct contact where possible and utilise tools such as Google Meet and Zoom for video calling. These were already in place since we started using these services with clients this time last year.

We also set out our plans regarding new clients in which we stated that we would be keeping new clients to a minimum. 

Further to this, we set out a client package that we can use to assist with payments during this difficult time. Through this package, clients can put websites into a downstate meaning that they remain with us but would not have to pay monthly fees until they are back on their feet. We also recognise that several clients will be continuing business as normal, including Jambour Digital. 

We are here to help our clients remain active but more importantly safe during this tough time.

Be it a transaction that involves thousands of dollars or a simple login to a website, these kind of things should be kept completely secure. Heck even just viewing a website should be encrypted. This is done with SSL certificates.

As a result, Google has made it harder for unsecure websites that just use HTTP to gain popularity. Chrome now flags unsecure websites as standard which means that unless the site uses HTTPS, Chrome will notify you by displaying "Not Secure" on the URL bar when you visit the page.

Jambour Digital offers SSL on all websites so you don't have to worry about that!

Starting from July 1st 2018, our opening hours for support will change. You will still be able to leave voicemails on the system at the normal times.

The following is the current list of support hours:

  • Monday - Thursday: 10.00 - 20.00
  • Friday: 14.00 - 15.00
  • Saturday: 10:00 - 12:30
  • Sunday: Closed all day

In an emergency when we are closed (and only when we are closed), please send us an email. Please also note, that these hours will change again in August.

I'm happy to announce that we have now moved from G Suite to Mailgun for our mail. I was very close to changing to running a Postfix mail server from the web server but after having a think, Mailgun seemed like a better option.

For users of the server, this means mail comes from the email address or the emaill address.

Although none of the websites I host store any personal information due to the nature of the websites, it is still within the scope of a web developer to ensure that all websites are now compliant.

As mentioned, no websites stores personal information. We use Matamo to monitor page visits on the sites hosted here but we request only anonymous information. This information means nothing to the end user, and at the end of the day it is also at their own discretion whether to give this information to us at all.

The final countdown has started!

Jambour Digital will cease to build new websites for new clients from August 1st this year until January 2019. After this date I will no longer take on any more websites and whilst I have made it very clear that all websites so far have all been favours for people, this will no longer continue after August.

This is because I will start teacher training. This website will continue to remain up but it will be only for existing clients.

So if you are wanting me to do a website for you, get in touch before the 1st of August!

We've got a bunch of different opening times in December as follows:

From the 10th onward we'll be only open until 13.00 each day of the week. We also will not be open on Saturdays from then as well.

We'll be closed from the 20th of December until the 27th of December and then closed again on the 30th of December until the 5th of January. Between the 27th and 30th of December, we'll be operating the same shorter service.

In this time we will not be taking phone calls or answering emails. You are welcome to leave a voicemail or send an email to us though. 

Oh and it's probably important you know that all our server maintenance will continue over the festive season, so don't worry about your backups and so on!

A warm welcome to you for coming to visit our new website!

I thought I'd use this post to talk a little bit about Jambour Development and who we are and what we do.

Firstly, Jambour is a service that offers both website development and website hosting in one package. We are small, with only two members of the company. Myself (Jamie) and Michael Balfour are the current team; I focus on the website development and Michael focuses on the graphics. 

We both manage the business and offer our clients the best quality service that we can. 

I hope we can find the perfect solution for you, if you think we can then get in touch!
