Whilst we provide creative services that result in the production of websites, graphics, print, or photography, we made a conscious decision years ago to complete the service we offer our clients.
We have never understood the premiss of designing and then building a website for a client.. and then sending them off somewhere else to have it hosted, or using a mass-shared system with 1,000's of other unknown websites on the same server. So, back in June 2000 we made the decision to invest in our own website hosting and email servers specifically for our clients needs - we call it 'Client Only Hosting'.
For print and output we have partnered with print companies that can provide a wide range of stocks and quality finishing services.
For photography where finished or mounted display or presentation prints are required, we use some of the UK's finest photographic print labs for hand-finished output, mounting, framing and display options.
We provide a professional domain name management service and can search, register, and manage all your domains names for you. GIGER MEDIA are full members of Nominet UK and are a CentralNic Accredited Registrar, operating our own dns servers.
...and unlike many domain re sellers we register YOUR names to YOU or YOUR business, not ours.
Let's make this clear first off - we are not re-sellers - we have our own dedicated 'client only' website hosting and email servers based here in the UK, not abroad (we do like to wave the flag when we can) allowing us to provide a managed, safe, and secure environment for your website.
With a 99% guaranteed uptime and unlimited bandwidth, our hosting service is designed specifically with our clients in mind.
We do our bit. Yes, we do have a green and ethical policy, and no not just because it's trendy - we've done it for ages and to be honest it makes good business sense. We try to consider everything before making a decision, from our choice of business bank to the paper we use in the office, the tea and coffee we drink, even down to what and how we print certain items for some of our clients.
We actively encourage all our clients to settle their accounts by BACS or to use our secure GIGER FastPay system as this is not only easier for all concerned, it saves on unnecessary postage, envelopes, traffic and therefore fuel.
Even our black GIGER MEDIA branded pens and pencils are green (gedit.??). They are made from recycled plastic CD cases. What do you mean you haven't got one of these..? Every client should have these on their desk so next time we meet, just ask.
