A more detailed explanation of a domain name can be found on Wikipedia

Like most marketing and web agencies, Ketchup Marketing will design and develop your company website within an agreed time-frame and budget. We find that the majority of web clients prefer that Ketchup host their website and an email, therefore the only contract is annual hosting unless you wish to undertake a maintenance contract.
Most of our larger clients have agreed maintenance contracts in place with Ketchup Marketing, these contracts vary depending on the client, the required monthly updates. Typically these contracts agree to a set number of hours to be completed by the marketing / design and development team.

A copywriter writes promotional text to boost awareness of products and services – copy for letters, leaflets, brochures and adverts as well for marketing campaigns, content for websites, blogs and social media posts. It’s nothing at all to do with copyright (and everything to do with smart techniques helped along by a little bit of magic).
We have a fantastic team of writers, each offering experience and specialisms across diverse fields to fortify your copy and make it effective, engaging and full of energy. They’re full of curiosity about what make people tick and why people buy so you’ll find their copy a potent mix of psychology and persuasion (and guaranteed to be free from spelling mistakes).
As much as you can give us! The more we know, the better. When we first get together, we’ll give you a briefing form which will cover what you hope to achieve with us as well as ask you to think about your marketing objectives, your competitors, your target audience and the tone of voice you prefer. Sometimes things will occur to you after we’ve left the building (if we visit) so we’re always happy to discuss your plans and ideas over the phone or by email. We’re big on communication and staying in touch.
This refers to the art of designing and creating a website which is search engine friendly. It’s about making sure your website has the right structure and the right words in both copy and code, having lots of relevant content and getting other websites to link to yours. Search engines are continually getting smarter about understanding the tactics some people use to try to manipulate them. We always recommend applying SEO best practice across all content combined with smart development behind the scenes. It’s a bit of a dark art. We’re great at it, though.
On Page SEO covers optimizing your website and making changes on title, meta tags, site structure and content whereas Off Page SEO is more about building back links and using social media to promote your site. Ask us another.
Pay per click (PPC) advertising is essentially a form of online advertising designed to drive traffic to your website through marketing aimed specifically at search engines. So when people enter certain keywords into Google or any other search engine, your advert appears in the results. It can be very cost efficient as you only pay when the ad is clicked on (which the name makes very obvious!) and the clickee is taken to your website or landing page.
Simply put, with PPC advertising your business lands directly in front of the consumer; it’ll show up when people are looking specifically for the product or service that you are offering. You only pay when someone clicks and you can set a budget giving you more control over costs. It works faster than organic searches, so you should see results pretty quickly. It’s a great way for small businesses to be up there with national and global organisations.
Everything is trackable so you’ll be able to see the exact ROI – clicks, impressions, rate and cost per click, the average position of your ads – it can be a little addictive…
Find out more about how your business could benefit from PPC advertising by speaking to a member of our team.
Sometimes it depends on what we’re printing for you (flyers, posters, banners, signs, brochures, postcards or leaflets) and the quantities.
Often it’s related to budget as well as to which print process is best for your needs (eg digital or offset, coated or uncoated, die cutting or embossing, custom ink, etc) and whether you’re looking for environmentally friendly stock. What we can promise is that there will always be options in terms of paper quality, so if you’re looking for something really special to make an impact when it lands on your customers’ desk, let us know.
Of course. As well as co-ordinating the printing, our team is very experienced at designing for print. You’ll benefit from innovative ways of transmitting your desired message using vivid styles, glorious pictures, crafted type and clever use of shapes.

There is a limit of 30MB for attachments for emails sent to your mailbox, should attachments larger than this be sent to your mailbox the sender will get a bounceback with a message similar to the following: message size (size) exceeds size limit 31457280 of server mail.(your domain)
Additionally, no email will be delivered that would make your mailbox exceed its quota, which by default is 400MB. If this is not enough we can increase the quota of your mailbox to 2GB for a small fee. To increase your quota please contact us
Yes, providing you have access to the control panel with your domain registrar. We will explain the best option for you and we can help with making changes to your domain settings if you prefer.
All major email clients allow mailboxes to be accessed via either POP3 or IMAP4.
These are two different protocols. On your desktop client, POP3 is downloaded directly from the mail server onto your computer. Your computer will store a “local copy” of the mail, and usually delete it from the server.
You can create local folders on your computer to organise the mail, but you won’t see these or your mail if you logged in using webmail, additionally, if you create folders to organise your mail in webmail, you won’t be able to access these on your desktop client.
Mail will therefore only contribute towards the mailbox limits while it is left downloaded in the inbox.
IMAP4, in contrast, is left on the server (where it will continue contributing towards your mailbox limit). If you create folders/organise your mail in your desktop client, you will see this update when you log in with the webmail client (and vice-versa). Similarly, when you mark a message as “read” in webmail, it will appear “read” in your desktop client.
If you’re accessing your mail on several different computers, IMAP can therefore be useful.
As with many errors, there may be a number of causes behind a ‘550 Relay Not Permitted’ error. Here are some common ones:
Here is the list of solutions you’ll need in the event of seeing this error and one of the above reasons being the cause:
In order to send mail through our mail servers, your email client must be configured to use SMTP Authentication. That is, our mail servers needs to be logged into with a username and password.
Common email clients include a tickbox in the account configuration with the label “This server requires authentication”, this box should be ticked. Otherwise, look for a setting on the outgoing server settings that refers to authentication and set it to use the same username and password for the incoming server.
If there is not an option to use the same credentials as the incoming mail server, you should set your full e-mail address as the username, and then add your mailbox password to the password field.
Some ISPs, such as AOL, block sending mail on port 25. If this is the case for your ISP, setting SMTP to port 587 will in almost all circumstances be a working alternative.
Our mailservers won’t accept mail for domains that don’t have our mail servers as the primary MX records (i.e. the records with the lowest priority number set). If you get a 550 error when sending to our servers, and they aren’t the primary records, you’ll need to raise the priority of the MX records that point to our mail servers by setting them with the lowest number of the existing records.
You may also see this error shortly after a DNS change has been made. If a domain’s DNS cache has not yet updated to reflect recent changes, you may face 550 errors. Waiting will resolve the matter in this instance.
This is simply a case of removing the forwarder that completes the loop. Remember that you can set forwarders on auto-responders, so if this forwards back to the e-mail address the auto-responder is for, this will need to be changed or removed.
If you continue to receive the error, please contact support, they will be able to assist you further.
Yes, we pride ourselves on ensuring all the websites we design will display on all devices.

The whole process was really painless, they advised us on everything including what sort of content…
