With over two billion active monthly users, Facebook, has become one of the biggest sources of entertainment, news, and frustration on the internet! We were recently asked by a client if her account was hacked after she received several messages from friends saying they had received another friends request. After a little research, we came across an article by CNet “How to tell if your Facebook has been hacked (and what to do).”
Aloha and Hauʻoli Makahiki Hou! The team at Hilo Web Design would like to let you know that we have MOVED! AGAIN!
One of the many services we provide at Hilo Web Design is setting up and helping maintain an Online Shopping Cart – for that we use WooCommerce. WooCommerce uses extensions (plug-ins) to add features such as payment gateways (accepting VISA, Mastercard, etc.), adding USPS shipping information, and product add-ons.
We have told you in the past about the difference between using an SSL Certification versus using a payment method like PayPal and the costs and issues assoicated with both. A NEW exetnsion has arrived that is used with those sites wtih and SSL Certification and is FREE! STRIPE: Accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards directly on your store with the Stripe payment gateway for WooCommerce. The only thing that this system requires is a valid SSL certificate. This ensures your customer credit card details are safe! This plugin also uses Stripe JS to tokenize credit card numbers to make payments keeping card data secure. Stripe now works with refunds in WooCommerce 2.2+.

We have officially moved back in to the downtown Hilo area! We are excited to be back in the downtown Hilo community and look forward to welcoming our clients (old AND new) to this newly renovated location above Extreme Exposure and Aloha Grown in the heart of downtown Hilo!
To build professional looking websites to meet our client’s objectives, one of the solutions we provide are custom WordPress (CMS) websites. Through this popular use of WordPress, we always make sure that our websites are safe and secure for our clients. Just recently, we were made aware (via the security blog Sucuri) of a serious vulnerability in a few popular WordPress plugins.
We recently shared with you our re-design labels and logos for Hawaii Nui Brewing and Mehana Brewing Company, as they switched from bottles to cans. Part of that process involved taking the original designs and recreating them with not only less colors to choose from but less space to use.
We recently ran across an advertisement for FIVERR.com, a site that allows you to pay someone $5 to do just about anything from web design to house cleaning. We thought it would be fun to take one of our current clients and see what $5 could get them for a new logo. While we do all of our designs in house and would never actually use someone elseʻs designs as our own, it was fun to be on the other side of the table!
If you hadnʻt already heard, WE MOVED!
2015 has brought many changes to the team at A.S. Designs & Services, the biggest of which is our new office space! We officially moved-in to our new space on January 19th of 2015 and are all looking forward to this new and exciting chapter at ASDS.
As a company that does social media marketing for several businesses we are not new to Twitter. However, some of the things you can actually do with Twitter has thrown us for a loop! For instance, did you know you can use your Twitter account to feed your dog while away at work or out and about? You can also send someone a $5 Starbucks gift card using Twitter, which we think is why Matthew is so adamant about using the platform!
