In 2003 we launched the low cost PHP/MYSQL web hosting specialist Switchweb, six years later we've decided to relaunch Switchweb with a fantastic new design, more low cost hosting and two amazing new services.
- Online Advertising - Switchweb has a growing network of sites including ImAFish, iPod History and 12Stix, all are excellent choices for buying text link adverts. Getting higher Google ranking and page rank is increasingly important for websites which is why advertising through independent agents such as Switchweb is ever relevant.
- Website Design - Switchweb has partnered with Shrewsbury based The Web Orchard to provide high quality web sites, content management systems and E-Commerce sites. The Web Orchard have a proven track record in delivering to customers such as Aston Martin, Honda, the YMCA and Unison.
Switchweb is the home to hundreds of websites and with its 99% up-time guarantee is the perfect choice for your website.
Packages start from just £13 per year with a domain name and provide reliable PHP/MYSQL web hosting. A full comparison of features and package.

On Sunday disaster struck, my hard drive corrupted and OS X wouldn't boot. I feared the worst but had been backing up for the past two years using OS X Time Machine. Could it be as simple as restoring from backup to a new drive?
My first job was to install a new hard drive, this is easier said then done in the all in one iMac. Fortunately this video from camodesto went through step by step, first removing the glass front, then the aluminium case and then the screen. Finally you can replace the hard drive, I opted for an upgrade to a 1TB drive.
After booting from the Snow Leopard DVD I created a partition on the new hard drive then restored from Time Machine. The process took around seven hours to copy my 300gig of data from the External drive.
When I rebooted my Mac had been restored to 5pm on Sunday, 90mins before it had died. All my files were restored, even my Firefox tabs were saved.
A Shrewsbury based web-development company is proud to have recently unveiled the latest in a long line of new websites for clients. The Web Orchard has been working on a new website for Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, which is now live!
The new Shropshire Fire and Rescue website is a Drupal 7 based website, utilising the best technology in terms of functionality and usability. The Web Orchard are Drupal specialists and believe it is one of the most adaptable and scalable content management systems available.
Speaking of the work, Pete White of The Web Orchard said “We're certainly proud to have developed the new website for such an important organisation and public service for local people, as Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service.”
He added “Their new website offers a professional, efficient and easy to use portal for people; with in-depth information for public safety, as well as incident reports, events and integrated social media.”
Ian Russell of Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said “It was a pleasure to work with Web Orchard on this project. The professionalism, creativity and depth of knowledge shown by everyone on the development team was very impressive.”
