In December 2016 Webjoy was contacted by a London based company who had sustained a number of attacks against their 7 websites. Following investigations it was discovered there was a malware infestation which their hosting supplier Dataflame were unable to help them overcome. So they turned to Webjoy for help. The recovery work entailed transferring the sites to Wejoy’s hosting platform and rebuilding each wordpress website from scratch to eradicate the malware and to ensure full security to prevent such attacks in the future. Google search listings also had to be re-established to remove all trace of the malware from Google search i.e. numerous embeded pages with links to other malicious and random websites.
Their sites are now clean and running without issues. They offer translation services mainly targeting the Polish community. Most of the attacks originated from Poland and other Northern European countries including Russia. One of their sites is traductio.co.uk .
Since 1999 Webjoy has developed a number of methods, practices and monitoring techniques to keep all of its customer websites both safe and secure.

Webjoy moved to Frome, Somerset in 2014. Here we discovered a new breed of social networking called nextdoor.com mainly because it had just started up. Nextdooor is like Facebook only geared to the local community. So it’s a very intuitive and simple way to get in touch with neighbours and the local community. You just go to the website, and sign up specifying you post code. It is used regularly by neighbours to ask simple questions like ‘where can i get …’ and ‘i have a bed i don’t need which needs a home…’. It’s simplicity makes it a vibrant place to check out. A good place also to promote your local business and to follow up leads.
