Testimonials

We’re nothing without our great customers. Here’s what a few of them have to say here.

Developer Interview

Hello, my name is Greg. I am the Barista behind Javabean Hosting. I’d like to take a few minutes to tell you…

Your Barista, Greg
  • What’s the most unique feature of Javabean Hosting? We are the only host with a dedicated RapidWeaver plugin. How cool is that?
  • Why did you start Javabean Hosting? I started Javabean Hosting because I became tired of the standard hosting model. Hosting companies lock you in with contracts and lock down their services. This makes it hard for users to build truly great websites. In addition to policies and technical limitations, I wanted a service that I knew was fast. I am obsessed with speed and like I can add hosting features that really matter (like GZip compression and extra fast disks). Sites (and their owners) deserve the best.
  • What part of hosting is most interesting to you? Speed & optimization. I enjoy squeezing the most out of everything and routinely tuning the hardware and software so my users are experiencing the fastest speeds possible.
  • What features should a prospective buyer look into during a trial of your product? First and foremost, service. I’ll earn your trust and guide you on the right track. Second, speed. You should start to feel a noticeable speed increase to your site once you’ve switched over. Interested in a less subjective approach, try YSlow. We can help you make sense of YSlow if you’d like and filter out what is important and what isn’t when it comes to speeding up your site.
  • What are some interesting experiences you’ve had with web hosting? Probably the most “interesting” experience I’ve had is the migration of my server from 1 provider to another upstream provider. About 3 months ago I had to make a switch due to a failure in the provider to deliver for me (and thus, my clients) on services that I expected. I was up until 5am that morning migrating everyone’s account. The bottom line is that I care about my users and what happened was unacceptable. Details of this migration can be found on my blog.
  • What’s your favorite Mac app out there from another developer? Why? I use so many Indie apps (one of my favorite things about the Mac is the number of Indie developers!) but my favorites have to be Fantasical and Sparrow. I use these apps regularly and they make working with Email and Calendar painless.
  • What features would you like to add to your product? I have a few future plans for the Javabean plugin. For instance, I’d like to include more stats, controls and documentation. Yes, I know that is vague, but it is only because the cool stuff is worth the wait ;)
  • What would you like a user to ask you? “How much space do you recommend for my site?” (Typically, It depends on the size of your RapidWeaver project). Or on a personal note – “How do you drink your coffee?” (Hint: black. I enjoy tasting the various coffee flavors without altering the flavor with cream or sugar.)
  • What should I ask that I’m forgetting? What does a user need to do to get started? The process is fairly simple although can sound overwhelming. It can be summarized in 3 steps:
    • Sign up. Don’t worry if it isn’t the ‘right plan’. You can upgrade or downgrade at any time.
    • Publish and test your site to your new host, migrate any databases, and email accounts.
    • Switch your domain from pointing at your current host to your new home at Javabean Hosting.
  • What are the answers to some common questions people have about your app before they buy? Please check out the FAQ below

Backups – How do you keep my data safe?

We take backups very seriously. There are a few methods that we employ to make sure we’re able to help you in a time of need.

  • Offsite backups via Amazon S3. Every night, we archive your entire site (including databases and email) to Amazon S3. Amazon S3 is globally recognized as the leading provider of storage in the cloud. We hold 30 days worth of backups.
  • Rsync backups. Unix nerds will appreciate Rsync backups. These are taken daily of all your files. Any time a file is changed, the file is backed up to another server. This allows us to restore a single file.
  • Server snapshots. We take entire server snapshots every night. We keep these backups so we can restore the entire server in case of extreme emergencies.

FAQ

  • Is this for new or existing customers? This is for new customers only.
  • But Host XYZ offers unlimited bandwidth and disk space! Yes, this is true, other ‘big box’ hosting companies promise you the world. In reality, they are overselling their servers and stuffing as many users on the same machine as possible. This slows down your site and exposes you to higher potential of security flaws. We care about you and your site more than that!
  • Do I need to transfer my domain? Not at all! You are free to use your current domain registrar. Of course, if you’d like you can transfer or register a domain with us at any time.
  • How many domains can I have? As many as you’d like! Everyone has more than one website nowadays (including us).
  • How many sub-domains can I have? Of course, as many as you’d like!
  • How many email accounts can I have? There is a … nah, just kidding. There is no limit to the number of email accounts you can have. Almost fooled you, didn’t I?
  • Do you support plugin XYZ or Stack ABC? If you find something that is made for RapidWeaver and doesn’t work, let us know and we’ll work on making sure we have the necessary software installed.
  • I’ve purchased the Zot, what do I do now? Great! Please remember, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! We’re very happy to answer them. Let’s get started!
    • Find coupon code. You can retrieve you coupon code via email or by logging into your Zot account.
    • Order your new service. Once you’ve obtained your coupon code proceed to order the Half-Caf plan. You can choose 1 of 3 options while signing up. You may:
      • Register a new domain. Have a cool new domain you’d ilke to register? Great! You can do so now. All domain registrations include free WHOIS and DNS management.
      • Transfer a domain. This option is if you’d like to move your domain from your current registrar (the company you originally bought your domain from) to Javabean. All transfers include 1yr extension for the expiration of your domain and free private WHOIS protection and DNS management.
      • I will update my name servers. This is for users who’d like to keep their domain at their current company. All that is required is that you update the domain to point to Javabean Hosting. You can transfer it later if you’d like. If you’re unsure of which option to choose, please use this one. We can help you with the process and explain everything!
    • Publish your site! You will receive a ‘New Account Info’ email shortly after signing up. This email contains your FTP/CPanel login and password. This is the login and password that you will use in RapidWeaver for publishing. Please keep it safe. For security, it is different from your billing login and password.
  • Why are there so many options when signing up? Choice. We believe you should have choice in how your site is set up. We don’t hold your site hostage and require you to register or transfer your domain to us. We will happily register or transfer your domain, the choices are yours.

Technical Details

Do you love reading a good tech specification? We only use first class hardware and software. Check this out:

  • PHP v5.3
  • MySQL 5
  • Raid-10 SAN (storage area network) for blazing fast hard drive access
  • Burstable 1Gbps network
  • Globally distributed DNS servers (13 in total) mean that DNS lookups are always fast no matter where your visitors are!
  • Auto-scaling architecture. We’re always ready for your site to hit the big time!

OverSite 4.0.3

Easy wireframing and interaction design

Logo Design Studio Bundle and Paragon NTFS and HFS Zots Continue… Scroll down to visit The ZOTshop! Weekend ZOT Preview too…

Normally: $65.00

ZOT Price: $25.00

If you design, develop, or architect Websites, then OverSite is the app you’ve been waiting for… even if you didn’t know it! OverSite makes it simple to mock up and prototype your Website. You can quickly define your site’s overall structure… and OverSite will automatically generate a graphical site map. Creating wireframes of your individual pages—complete with hyperlink navigation between pages—is a breeze. You can attach notes to your wireframes to provide further details. And once you’re done, you can export your site structure to a number of different formats.

OverSite’s rich feature set includes:

  • An easy-to-use structure editor with drag-and-drop functionality and the new Rapid Structure Creator.
  • A wireframe editor, allowing you to mock up pages and screens of your site.
  • Detailed notes attached to widgets within your wireframes.
  • Reusable wireframe components with OverSite’s composites and templates functionality.
  • Automatic sitemap generation with customizable colors, fonts, and other UI elements.
  • Ability to test site interaction with OverSite’s Clickthru browser.
  • Ability to import pre-existing Web sites, and modify their site structures.
  • Ability to export site structures as folders and HTML files, clickable images, and other formats.
  • Get started quickly

    OverSite’s Rapid Structure Creator lets you simply type in your website’s structure… At the click of a button, OverSite will transform your text into a full-blown site architecture!

    Widgets and wireframes with ease


    OverSite’s rich menu of widgets lets you create wireframes and interactive mockups, and includes:

  • Buttons
  • Checkboxes
  • Dividers
  • Images
  • Labels
  • Spinners
  • Library of Common Images/Icons
  • Drop-down Lists
  • Radio Buttons
  • Rectangles and Squares
  • Circles
  • Lines
  • Spreadsheets and Tables
  • Dialogs with Templates
  • HTML Components
  • Scrolling Panels
  • Tabbed Panels
  • Textareas
  • Paragraphs
  • Textfields
  • Sliders
  • Triangles
  • Stars
  • Polygons
  • Don’t like the default look of the components? Customize them however you want them to; size, colors, border sizes, fonts, and more can all be easily modified. Even the overall painting effect can be set to anywhere from no effect at all, to subtle shading, to glassy Web 2.0 effects. Don’t want to tweak the look and feel of every component individually? Just define your own custom styles and apply them to all of your components with the click of a button.

    But OverSite’s just getting started at that point. Its Composite tool lets you construct your own complex components, based on OverSite’s built-in components, that you can apply over and over again throughout your wireframes. Because let’s face it… repetition sucks! OverSite’s alignment, arrangement, and even-distribution tools let you quickly place components onto a wireframe, then even more quickly lay them out properly. Take advantage of a section’s wireframe canvases to create partial layouts that will appear in all of that section’s pages. Want to create a slight variation on an existing page? Don’t start from scratch with a new page; don’t even start with a cut & paste copy of the existing page! Just create a Version of the page, and make your modifications there!



    Create a page… and then create a Version and make a few tweaks

    Clarify your mockups

    Annotate your wireframes by attaching notes to your widgets. Notes describe the type of each widget, and any other information you need to provide to ensure your mockups are crystal clear.

    And lots more…

    OverSite’s list of features goes on and on and on… From autogenerated—yet fully-customizable—sitemaps,to built-in interaction testing (in regular or full-screen mode), to a plethora of exporting options, there’s a lot of functionality packed into this tiny price!

    What are people saying about OverSite?

    “This is the most full-featured and easy-to-use IA/wireframing/prototyping tool that I’ve come across and frankly I’m amazed that I’ve taken so long to discover it (it’s been around for 3 years).”

    - Christian from SmileyCat web design blog, A Better Way to Create Information Architectures, Wireframes and Prototypes

    “Thank you very much for creating OverSite – from my point of view it’s a blessing.”

    - Tony Cundiff

    “I have been using it for a week in two different projects and I’m impressed. Does what it says very well. Building the wireframes and prototyping the navigation is very fast and painless.”

    - Alexandre

    “I’ve been using this great little program for awhile, and the more I use it, the more useful I find it. The developer is friendly and helpful as well, and has even added bits of functionality that I’d asked for!”

    - Becca

             

    System Requirements

    OverSite requires the following to run:

    • Mac OS X 10.4 or greater.
    • A Java 1.5 (or higher) runtime.
      (OS X, up through 10.6 Snow Leopard, includes this by default. Users of 10.7 Lion will be prompted to download the latest version of Java the first time OverSite is launched.)

    What exactly is Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X?

    Click here to get the detailed Pre Sales FAQ…

    Paragon NTFS for Mac® OS X is a low-level file system driver specially developed by Paragon Software Group from the ground up. The driver is based on unique Paragon Technology called Universal Files System Driver (UFSD). It provides reliable, fast and full read/write access to Windows NTFS file system under Mac® OS X like native file systems and completely supports Mac® OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.5 Leopard, 10.6 Snow Leopard and 10.7 Lion with G4, G5 and x86 architectures and all NTFS versions – from Windows NT 3.1 up to Windows 7.

    What are some common uses of Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X?
    Paragon NTFS for Mac® OS X is intended to open up an effective two-way communication channel between Mac and Windows. There are a number of basic use scenarios:

    1. You’re a Boot Camp user (Mac OS X + Windows) who can really appreciate full read/write access to NTFS under Mac
    2. You need to transfer data (files over 4GB) from your Mac to a Windows-based computer with an external hard drive. The FAT32 file system well supported by both operating systems cannot be used on that external drive, since it cannot process files over 4 GB
    3. You’re not willing to bother with what file system your thumb drive or external hard disk uses. The only thing that matters is a 100% guarantee you’ll get access to them
    4. You need to provide unhampered data exchange within mixed corporate environment (Mac and Windows users).

      “Sleek, sleek, sleek! Take everything you know about sleek painting software interfaces, then paint some more gray and silver coats of paint on it, and maybe you’ll be ready to use PaintSupreme. With only a few buttons breaking its grayscale layout, jumping into this new program is pretty easy and the concise organization of the main dropdown options makes exploring the basics a quick and unchallenging process.” – Review by Tom Fronczak of www.animationcareerreview.com

      “Really appreciate the effort put into providing a tutorial for us users. To me it is a sign that you care enough about the user to get them to use software as easily as possible. I hope that others see the difference between you and other developers who leave you to beat your head against the wall until you figure out how to best use their software features and capabilities. Thank you.”
      – Testimonial from Rogerio R. Pérez

      “Keep sending your emails about the new tutorials. They are GREAT and I appreciate learning from them very much. I especially like the step-by-step approach without you taking any shortcuts or assuming that we all know every in and out of the program. I wish other program developers adopted a similar approach and I cannot wait for the next update/upgrade.”

    Welcome to Scrutiny’s MacZOT!

    Improve the quality and search engine ranking of your website, check your images, your internal and external links, generate an XML sitemap for submission to search engines, validate your html and make essential SEO checks such as page title, headings, meta description and keywords.

    How does it work?

    Feed Scrutiny your homepage URL and watch it follow internal links to find all of your pages and carry out checks from the same viewpoint as a search engine robot.

    What will it tell me?

    • Scrutiny scans your site, checking for internal and external links as well as images
      See problems at-a-glance highlighted in colour. Double-click for more detailed information
    • Generates and ftps an XML sitemap conforming to the standard protocol for submission to search engines
    • Checks your html using the w3c html validator; the public instance (which has limits) or your own installation (I currently recommend Validator S.A.C. which makes installation of the validator easy)
    • Highlights SEO issues such as missing page title, meta description, headings and keywords

    How does that help me?

    Fixing these problems will improve your visitors’ experience and improve your search engine rankings.

    Visualising your site’s structure as a graph will let you easily spot pages which are ‘out on a limb’ or not as well-integrated as they could be.

    New version on the way

    version 2 is in progress and planned for release later this year. It will have some new tools, improvements and a facelift. There will be no extra charge for existing licence holders including those who take advantage of this ZOT

    Testimonials

    “Thanks for the great tool, I think webmasters who don’t need advanced options can make great use of it to spot main on page problems and remove obstacles to high rankings!”
    – from review by Singley via Macupdate

    System requirements

    Mac OSX 10.4 or higher, Intel or ppc. Crawling very large sites will require more resources and internet bandwidth than smaller ones.
