website design, electronic & social media

Our clients rely on us to sort through the dizzying array of electronic media options to best accomplish their goals. We can set up content-based sites that let you add and update, expand and control. We can integrate URLs, apps, tags, and feeds. We can set up a solid e-foundation, and then make you mobile. Because communications are our business, Good Design builds experience with new media on a faster and broader scale than most organizations can do alone.

While we are abreast of all the latest technologies, we stay focused on those that are the best—as in, the ones that most further the communications objectives that you have set. That is Good Design.

Good Design has been working with Drupal since 2007. We contribute patches and test module patches within
the Drupal community. We regularly attend Drupal developer conferences and webinars.

How we host your website:
• We've built an optimized software stack set up on our server to run Drupal.
• We conduct automatic off site database and code backups multiple times a day with version tracking which helps decreases time for future feature development or rolling back to previous version of your website.
• We optimize images through command line tools automatically after uploading. This reduces the size of the image without degrading which helps the website load faster.
• We offer varying levels of storage, RAM, CPU packages for different size websites. You only pay for what you need.
• We have an advanced firewall with intrusion detection & automatic blacklisting of known infected machines to help prevent attacks from reaching your website.
• We feature varnish caching to decrease load time for anonymous users.
• We always work on a development copy of your website to test major updates before they are rolled out to your live website.
• Frequent site audits of website and server software stack to keep your website running at full potential.
• Analytic reports.
• Optional cached website copy and DNS forwarding support
