Our Services

At 3by400, our mission is to help companies effectively maximize their business using Internet-based tools. Those tools can be for use by the public viewer, segmented user groups, or internally. We also focus on helping organizations get the word out about their company by using current, practical methodologies in web implementation.

3by400 performs our own Joomla hosting. Why? Because we couldn't find anybody who did it right, in our opinion. We tune our servers for Joomla, we know how to do backups, and we respond to service requests.

For tuning our servers, we pay attention to the Apache parameters, the PHP libraries and extensions, and Linux versions.

Backups are to protect your site from fat-fingered 'oops' moments as well as hardware failures. These two categories require two different types of backup, and we provide both. Protection from 'oops' moments means being able to recreate your site as it was yesterday, the day before, or last week. Protection against hardware failure means being able to get your site back to where it was as close as possible to when the hardware failed, both the files that make up your site and the database from which your content is drawn.

You were sold on Joomla!(TM), but if the person who sold you didn't have Joomla expertise, you probably need help. Our JoomlAid service is simply a quick step to going from a mess to a high-performing site. With experts from the server operating system level to graphics and template issues, we've got you covered. Our familiarity with some of the most popular (and complex) components in the Joomla world can help you get out of the stickiest situations.

Our skilled consultants can help you create a new site or redesign an existing site. We help you determine the optimum look, navigation, and organization of site content and images so the viewer can easily find what's important about you. We also believe that the most important aspect of web design is unique, solid content and can help you develop that as well. During our design service offerings, you will be able to see progress on a private development site to make sure our visions are in sync.

In tandem with our web site design services, we typically recommend that your new site be based upon a widely implemented Content Management System (CMS). We recommend CMS because it is easier for you to update your site, it provides a template-driven system with a standard look, and provides you long-term scalability. Our CMS of choice is Joomla! because it fits the criteria of being easy to update, template-based, scalable, nicely constructed, and widely supported.

We stay abreast of the most common search engine criteria for optimum search results and help you get your site to that all-important first page of search

Although we prefer to outfit our clients with standard, off-the-shelf software, some needs reach beyond what is commonly available.

Brent's development style is lean and clean...a great value. Joining Brent are Keith and Bridgette to round out the team.

Big Commerce - Our Favorite Non-Joomla Cart

For most of our sites, we use Joomla! as you know. Occasionally we have a need for a site that's just a shopping cart. We review a client's needs and try to determine which is the most cost-effective and functional for them. One recent project led us to an ecommerce platform called BigCommerce. We were very impressed with the system and decided to become a reseller. If you know of anyone who needs just a shopping cart, let us know. This may be a good option for them.
