A Database can be used to store products, customer details, or as part of a CMS, web pages. The more complicated your website, the more databases can help you, and speed things up.

Dead Links

Dead Links are Links that don’t work. It’s important to check your links, either manually or with a link checking tool, so that your visitors can find what they are looking for, and that your site and your company look professional.
