WebStores launches Children's Book Store - (16/12/2013)

"After years of developing and managing eCommerce sites for our clients, we decided the time was right to have a bit of fun with one of our own projects.  So it is with great pride that we announce the launch of an online children's book shop, coolkidsbooks.co.uk.  The idea is simple:  any new parent will know that the process of choosing books for kids is often fruitless and sometimes agonisingly frustrating, not to mention expensive.  You could choose the best-selling book in the store, but that does not mean your child is going to like it.  This lack of certainty has two results: 1) Parents end up paying a lot of money for books that barely get read and 2) as a result, they often stop buying them and instead end up reading the same 'favourites' again and again, every single night!  "Gruffalo, Gruffalo!", cry the little monsters... and so the 142nd reading of the same 28 pages starts again. 

The idea behind Cool Kids Books is to offer great value books for kids, both new and used at prices to suit every pocket and to help make it easier to buy more books than you would normally risk, categorised and well illustrated with high quality front and back cover scans, (with internal page scans to follow soon), a loyalty and referral reward scheme and a constantly changing stock lineup to ensure that regular customers are guaranteed to see new books on each visit.  We will also be joining forces with children's charities and donating a percentage of our revenue stream to them each and every month.  So, for a great selection of new and used children's books, take a look at: http://coolkidsbooks.co.uk/ and let us know what you think.

"When we needed to provide a secure and reliable hosted solution for a number of small business clients that could not have their own 'on premise' server, WebStores were able to provide this environment and were really helpful in testing the security and helping us set up the permissioning for remote access."

"Our clients rely on us to protect their data and give them 24/7 access to their systems - and we can confidently say we provide this. The biggest accolade we can give to WebStores is that we have had only one support call from any of these clients in 2012 - and that was only because they forgot a password!"

After 5 months in the making, including diverse fibre routes, fire proofing, cooling system, card entry and GSM alarm system installations we are proud to announce that the Tunbridge Wells datacentre is now LIVE!  This adds to our already-existing datacentre in the Kent Science Park and means that we can now offer dual-location hosting across the two centres.  Clients can now sign-up to full server/site mirroring and DNS-failover services with us:  something which very few UK hosting providers can legitimately offer.
