Major Software Update: Enhancing Our Website and Online Services

Posted By Media Team @ Rebel Boy Media on Tuesday, 14th May 2024 at 3:08pm | Read Time: 2 Minutes approx.

At Rebel Boy Media, we are committed to providing our clients with the best possible online experience. That's why we're excited to announce a major coding upgrade to our website and online software, ensuring compliance with the latest standards for PHP Version 8.2.19.

What to Expect

While we aim to minimise any disruptions, some services may experience brief downtime during the upgrade process. We are dedicated to scheduling these updates outside of normal office hours whenever possible to reduce inconvenience to our users.

Why We Develop In-House

Managing and developing our website in-house is a complex but rewarding task. Here’s why we believe in maintaining full control over our software and services:

  • Customisation and Flexibility: By developing all our code and online software in-house, we can tailor our services to meet the specific needs of our clients. This level of customisation is unmatched by third-party providers.
  • Enhanced Data Security: With our dedicated server located in a major UK data centre, we significantly enhance data security. In-house development allows us to quickly address and fix bugs and security issues without waiting for third-party providers to release updates. This approach is particularly important compared to shared hosting environments, where the risk of security breaches is higher due to multiple websites sharing the same server resources.
  • Control and Reliability: Avoiding reliance on external software providers means we retain full control over our services. This reduces the risk of widespread exploitation by hackers who often target widely-used software.
  • Extensive Storage Capabilities: We host our clients’ video files, images, and other data on our dedicated server, using our own cloud storage software developed in-house. This eliminates reliance on third-party cloud providers and allows us to increase our website's data storage to over 70TB. No web hosting provider tells us how much data or bandwidth we can use!
  • Prompt Issue Resolution: When bugs are found, our team can promptly address and patch these issues, ensuring minimal disruption and enhanced security for our clients.

Commitment to Excellence

At Rebel Boy Media, our priority is to deliver reliable, secure, and customisable online services. This major upgrade is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to meeting and exceeding our clients' expectations.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support during this upgrade process. We are confident that these enhancements will provide a more robust and secure online experience for all our users.
