Is Your website ADA Compliant?

Posted by / in Blog /

ada compliance
Title III of the ADA has been been interpreted by US courts to apply to websites since January 2018.
For  websites to be ADA compliant, they need to be accessible.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines are organized around four principles:

Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust

Perceivable means that the information and content is presented and available to everyone, including with persons with disabilities.
Operable means that the website interface does not require interaction that persons with disabilities cannot perform.
Understandable means that both the information and operation of the user interface must be readily understandable to everyone (make everything simple, provide clear instructions).
Robust means that your website is accessible through a wide variety of user agents and technologies such as various screen readers and browsers.
Failing to comply with the ADA means your business is susceptible to lawsuits, and it’s common for attorneys to seek out non-compliant businesses both in the physical and digital space.
The most likely industries impacted are the following:
  • Restaurants
  • Property Management
  • Real Estate
  • Healthcare
  • Finance
  • Government sites
Sites that we have developed in the last 3 years are MOSTLY compliant. But to be sure, you can request a site scan and fix as it is your responsibility.

Web Hosting & Security

Posted by / in Blog, Hackers & Scams /

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to stay ahead of the hackers and malware that persists on the internet these days.

If any of you watched this episode of 60 minutes , you are aware of the enormous cost of ransomware attacks. The robots that look for vulnerabilities on computers are also looking to break into websites to cause  redirects, by adding malware and potentially dangerous viruses.

Websites can be vulnerable because of non-updated versions of WordPress plugins, themes, weak passwords and/or compromised servers.

We take as many precautions for our hosting customers by continuing to offer the latest site-lock security, backups and secure site locks (SSL). If you are not taking advantage of these products, please contact us.

Google’s initiative on creating more secure environments lead them to add “not secure” to Chrome browsers.  Now Ad word campaigns are being effected if running without the SSL lock. Please let us know if you do not have a secure site.
