What We’ve Been Up To Lately

All of us here at LexiConn have been keeping ourselves quite busy these past few months. From ecommerce add-ons to new hosting features, and a number of new partnerships, we’ve introduced a slew of features and services.

Here’s a breakdown of some of the highlights…

ShopSite add-on: Alt Tag Module

This free add-on module for ShopSite merchants allows a store owner to easily assign a field to be used for the image alt tags. No more manually editing alt tags. Set it to the product name, an extra product field, whatever you’d like.

Then sit back and reap the benefits of enhanced SEO for better image detection and searches.

ShopSite Version 11 SP2 r5

A maintenance release from ShopSite fixes a number of bugs and adds a few minor features.  Released at the end of January, all version 11 SP2 merchants were automatically upgraded to 11 SP2 r5.

SEO Services from Netsmartz

SEO is only getting harder these days. Google is rapidly changing the rules, and penalizing sites for using questionable tactics for ranking. That’s why we’ve partnered with Netsmartz to offer small business SEO services.

Netsmartz offers a number of affordable SEO packages to fit any budget. They are also familiar with ShopSite for ecommerce specific SEO.

Stop The Hacker – Malware detection and removal

Not a week goes by without at least one of our clients’ sites being hacked and malware inserted in their pages. From FTP passwords being scraped from compromised PCs to running older vulnerable software on their sites, these type of attacks are increasing in frequency.

Worst of all, once hacked, Google, Bing, and most computers will outright block your site until it’s cleaned up.

We’ve partnered with Stop The Hacker to offer both malware scanning and removal services. Starting from only $10 a month, this is an invaluable service to quickly catch and clean up after a hacker strikes.

New Web based File Manager

Our old tried and true file manager in the Account manager has finally been retired (although it’s still available for those that want to use it). We’ve upgrade to a more modern Ajax enabled file manager (based on Ajaxplorer.info).

This new file manager provides an advanced html What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor, improved file browsing, and a more stable upload feature. It is very similar to using a standalone FTP client.

Just a little recap of what’s new at LexiConn. Look for more ShopSite add-on modules in the near future, and improved features and partnerships to help you get the most out of your website.
