Like most web design consultancies we used to publish a list of past and present clients for all to see. It included the type of work we performed with graphics and links to sites.

Back in 2011 we took the decision not to publish client names as much of our work involves security consulting such as fixing hacked sites, cleaning malware and even retrieving hostaged sites from previous webmasters and some clients didn't want to publicise the fact that they had been hacked - even if they were subsequently cleaned and secured.  Client confidentiality is a key value for us.

The following is just a small selection of unsolicited quotes from real clients.

"We've just spent three months with another agency as they tried and failed to get our site secured and working correctly. We spent thousands on software we didn't need. Then we moved the site to Wintercorn and now it's clean, updated and secure. It hasn't missed a beat since the move. An expensive learning experience. Thanks."

"We got hacked and our web team cleaned it. Then we got hacked again and needed to find someone who actually knew what to do. We talked to a few firms and Wintercorn was the only one which responded quickly and with the right information. Our site was cleaned, secured and back online within the hour and remains clean, fast and secure. We can't thank you enough."

"We had got ourselves into a major pickle with a migration gone wrong. We lost our Google ranking, lost our revenue and almost lost everything with the amount of time we spent trying to move 300k products from Joomla to Wordpress. Wintercorn stepped in and saved us. They migrated the shop, customers, setup a new and better payment processor, secured the site and even increased our Google placing with some nifty seo and we are all happy now. Expensive, but worth it. Thanks guys"

"Your managed hosting is like insurance for our websites. How we managed before, I don't really know. The site's running smoother than ever and we spend less of our time on it. That's your job!"

"No problems this end. Good service from you."

"Many thanks for cleaning our site of the hack. It was caught just in time before anyone noticed and we could have faced ridicule or even worse."

"Many thanks for repairing our website. It was affecting our Google ranking and looked really bad for business. Your security expertise really shows."

"Thanks for moving our site to WordPress and the emails to Google. We've had no problems since. It's been a tiring process to try all of the free services over the last 4 years but we're convinced we've made the right decision. Your training was spot on as well. Thanks!"

"Our site got hacked. We didn't understand that it had to be updated and monitored. We were sold it as a 'plug and play' site from a major web company. The hack stopped customers contacting us, we got blacklisted in Google and Bing and then the site started sending out spam. We were on the verge of giving up and were introduced to Wintercorn. Within the day the site was cleaned, updated and secured. We now leave it all to them and concentrate on our business. Thanks for all of your help guys."

"We are very pleased with the site after you cleaned it up from the recent hack and this is especially important with the new holiday season coming up. Very happy with your service to date."

"We've learned more in 10 minutes with you than the last six months with our previous Joomla! developer."

"Thanks for fixing the site. It was beginning to look a mess and the frequent hacks made it unusable. We were almost at the point of giving up. Glad to have found Wintercorn."

"I don't know how you did it but you've fixed our broken site! We were really worried and the previous webmaster had pretty much given up. We've had no problems since taking your managed hosting service."

"Thanks for your work on our site. It was becoming an embarrassment and a liability. The previous agency clearly didn't understand WordPress like you do."
