Throughout this period of time Tom was very professional and would always go the extra mile by meeting any requirements we had. He also worked very quickly to help with other problems we encountered with our old hosting services and email, which at the time were not his responsibility. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to any other business looking for a great website."
