THEY SAID WHAT?
What our clients say about us...
Farleigh Dental & Farleigh Clinic Selsdon, Surrey
Our new websites look great and very user friendly. DigitalBulldog Web Solutions worked with us every step of the way to create our brand and online identity. It looks amazing, we’re very pleased!
- Dr C.G. Barratt, Farleigh Dental/Farleigh Clinic.
Mark W. Bonnett Somewhere in the Cynos Union
So, there I was, with a couple of books published, but at a complete loss as to how to proceed with the whole ‘I need an official website, now’ thing. DigitalBulldog Web Solutions was perfect, managing the domain and hosting solution, and working with me to design my official site from the ground up.

Been a little quiet on the posting lately, so let's have something new...
Introducing "Internet Corporate Villain Of The Week!"
We noticed this week that, back in March of this year, Dropbox had sneakily snuck in a new restriction. Free Dropbox accounts are now limited to just 3 devices, so if you want to use more than 3 devices with a free account you're forced to sign up for their not-cheap-by-any-means plans. That somehow passed us by back in March, in a "we don't think Dropbox told us of this change" sort of way.
Given that Google provide more space - 15GB FOR FREE - with a GMail account than Dropbox's piddling 2GB, and other good providers like PCloud give up to 11GB FOR FREE and out-price them on paid plans, we decided to make Dropbox our inaugural INTERNET CORPORATE VILLAIN OF THE WEEK.
Seriously, are they deliberately trying to get everyone to leave them? ... See MoreSee Less

Scam email of the week!
An email arrived in the spam folder claiming to be from Facebook, claiming that there was a sign-in from a new device. Ohreally? On investigation, it's designed to catch out the unwary and those who go "ohmygod! click click!" at first sight, so in our attached screenshot we've added notes and dissected it to see what's actually there.
For information on how to find out if Facebook have sent you a legitimate email - and a list of legitimate ones - go here: www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-security/new-security-feature-reveals-if-facebook-mails-are-legit.... You can also report suspected phishing and scam emails to Facebook at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't get done, folks. Be wise to these crooks. Use a different password for your Facebook to what you use elsewhere, never use the same pass as you use for the email account you sign in with. Even consider using a separate email address for your Facebook account. ... See MoreSee Less

It's time for... SCAM EMAIL OF THE WEEK!
This lil doozy arrived in our spam folder last week (which is absolutely the right place for it). Not everyone will be lucky enough to have a well-trained spam filter though, so we're here to help you spot the scam.
Trying to pretend it's a legit email from GMail, about us supposedly requesting termination of our account, it wants us to reply which will almost certainly then ask for username, password and more. Yeh sure... We'll just go right ahead and give you access to our emails and bank account details. GTF. 😂
Like a legitimate email from your bank, Google will never ask you for your password other than in their normal sign in screens, etc. If you get an email asking for your password, you can be guaranteed that it isn't from Google/Gmail.
Now, in the screenshot of the offending email, it's a bit messed up due to pitifully-bad formatting of the email itself, but you can see the email address it came from is clearly nothing to do with either GMail or Google. The email addresses these claim to be from will vary.
Stuff like this usually happens because your email address, no matter how carefully you protect it yourself, ends up on some scammer's list. More often than not, it's because someone you sent an email to wasn't as careful as you, and something hoovered up their address book or compromised their account.
Always sign in to your Google Account securely by entering the address into your browser’s address bar or via a trusted app.
You can report a suspected scam/phishing email directly from your GMail account. Sign in through the proper GMail/Google page, open the suspect email, and NEXT to reply click on the 3 vertical dots ⋮ (might be labelled "more"), and in the list you should see "Report phishing". Do it, report it and get these foul phishy scammers dealt with.
Don't get scammed, and stay safe out there. ... See MoreSee Less

"We are no longer the Knights Who Say Ni!", as Monty Python famously said. We're also not after a shrubbery, nor do we want anyone to "cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... with a herring!". We are changing our name, however, like the Knights.
As time has passed we've found less requirement for our IT support services, and more for our website-related services. We'll still provide IT support to existing clients, but our core focus is now on providing website and graphics solutions. To that end, we're no longer "DigitalBulldog IT & Web Services", we're DigitalBulldog Web Solutions. Same dog, less trees to bark up.🌲🐕🌳 ... See MoreSee Less
