November 7, 2013 by Eric and Chris

Like the Universe itself, the Internet operates around a collection of laws and natural tendencies. One of the big ones is that once a blog is created, it cannot be destroyed – its energy can only be transferred.

In other words, we've been pretty busy here at Intersites. As winter closes in and you find yourself retreating indoors, looking for something worthwhile to read that will help to inform you of this new and exciting digital age in which we live, you can rest assured that Suite 131 will have you covered.

We're continuing the re-branding process we started last year. Big changes are in store for the company and our customers. Exciting changes, like more services (especially for budget minded clients), updates on our PARIS process, improved project management, and more fun!

Chicago International Film Festival

Our web agency is a little bit of everything. We're programmers, we're designers, we're advisors, we're guides. We're also inspired artists – at least that's how we like to think about it, behind the scenes. Working with The Chicago International Film Festival for the past four years has let us indulge in this little artistic fantasy, but beyond that it's also been a wonderful learning experience. At Intersites, long term relationships are our goal. Starting fresh with Cinema/Chicago has been an excellent opportunity to reevaluate what it means to bring value to a client, and it's really reminded us of why we started making websites in the first place.

The Mobile Friendly Design Spectrum

The web changes faster than your 16-year-old daughter can text. It's hard to keep up, and it's even harder to know what to choose when it comes time to decide. We took a step back and looked at some of the latest developments in mobile friendly design. Web browsing just isn't what it used to be, and businesses that want to keep their websites relevant have got to decide whether they will Adapt or go True. Not sure what the difference is? Read on →

Dedicated Hosting

Your mother may have taught you that you should always share, but your mother never rented a room in Tijuana. Nor did she create a website. The Internet is rife with cheap web hosts that advertise rates as low as $3/month, but what these web hosts don't advertise is that you'll be sharing your space with a bunch of strangers who probably aren't bothering to make sure that their websites are secure. Think that can’t affect you? Think again. Shared hosting plans are only as secure as their least secure website. Kind of like how living with roommates is only as enjoyable as the sloppiest and most inconsiderate roommate. Or kind of like how buying your own home – i.e., a Dedicated Server – is inconceivably superior. And, these days, not that much more expensive. Read on →

As always, we welcome your feedback and thoughts. If there's something you're interested in or wondering about, let us know! We'll do our best to provide you with the resources or knowledge you're looking for. If you don't want to receive this monthly email you can unsubscribe by emailing us back.

Until next month, Happy Internet!
