Changes to publishing configuration

A recent automatic operating system update on all of our web servers has necessitated a change to the publishing configuration for any clients publishing their website with Expression Web.

Previously the Directory box was left empty – it should now contain ../../../web – please make this change and save the publishing configuration.

It has been noted that Microsoft FrontPage 2013 does not work with this directory configuration and we would advise all clients still using FrontPage to upgrade to ExpressionWeb. Other than being a different colour on screen, ExpressionWeb is very similar to FrontPage, especially if you customise it as directed in our tutorial.

Expression Web is now available as a free download from the Microsoft Download Center – click HERE to go to the download page. Please also see our “Editing Your Website” tutorial at http://www.eqwebs.com/client/Editing your website with Microsoft Expression Web 3 or 4.pdf.

Nominet Accredited Registrar Status

Eqwebs Ltd trading as Equestrian Websites was today awarded Accredited Registrar status by Nominet (the .uk domain name authority).  To date there are only 51 of over 4,700 Nominet Registrars who hold Accredited Status. This status is only awarded to those registrars who prove that they can meet the highest standards set by Nominet. This is an exceptional achievement for us as most Accredited Registrars are the “big” companies in the domain name industry.
