Update without breaks

You can update your website without breaking it


Contrary to popular misconception - you can make website changes without it being (too) painful.

Due to old school flash being flagged by security software and the favored choice to eliminate it, many corporate websites over the April 13-14th weekend overhauled their websites. Customers patiently waited for the changes to take effect while reading splash pages that stated, "please be patient while we update."

Now it's Monday, the tech departments have worked overtime since Friday and they hope every kink has been ironed out and all glitches are gone. For the most part, these website reconstructions have gone well. But for some like Home Loan Bank, the website changes could have been years better.

HLB uses the domain for their main website.

But their domain for payments is different (this is something I do not recommend for any business). Initially their payment site was

Rather than updating or overhauling their current payment site, HLB chose to use a new domain,

Which would have been great, had they informed their staff. And also set their old domain to forward to the new domain. Which is an easy process!

When calling in to HLB, their staff tell you that you need to open a new browser (not necessary), go to their main page and click on the link at the bottom. Instead, they should have said, "Our domain has changed, go to our main site to click on the link."

It is always incredible to me when a company has zero knowledge of how Information Technology works. When they seem to not even understand the basic concept of what a domain is. Or how their new website is accessible.

Almost every website currently online right now needs to be updated due to the necessary new security changes in coding. But it doesn't have to be klunky, it doesn't have to be painful and it does not need to frustrate your clients.

If you need your website updated, let me know. I've been in business for 23 years. I make fast, accurate changes. If you're not sure whether your site is up to date, ask and I'll give you a free consultation.

TNW Creations is a Web Development & Media Publishing Agency in Austin, Texas. Web Development, cyber security, web design, clean energy web host, Advanced SEO, Digital Marketing and more since 1995.

I've been programming, designing, writing and publishing professionally online since 1995. I've worn many hats throughout my life, but the common core of my career has always been media. Besides the portfolio you see on TNW Creations, my internet presence has been substantial for over 2 decades. In 1995, while still in college, I founded TNW Creations and became part of the grassroots development for teaching the Lakhota language online. By 2004, my bilingual work was listed on many sites, including National Geographic , Encarta and Touchstone Pictures Hidalgo. When I'm not developing and writing, you'll find me managing MagicStoryLand.Com, creating kid-friendly game & video content, investigating and initating hostile website takedowns, posting salty articles about cyber threats, moderating UnifyLife.Org and enjoying my  community, church & family.
