My entire business revolves around my website - and without it I could not exist. Rich built the first page 9 years ago and has been instrumental in my business success. He thinks about my business goals, explains options in terms I can understand and has helped me solve numerous situations with creative cost effective technology. Most important he is reliable, available and I trust him completely with my most important business asset. I always feel that I am a priority. I highly recommend Rich and his team.

"Thanks for the quick work of getting our sites back up and running. I really appriciate your team being so professional and experienced at osCommerce.
Your security software is doing an amazing job and is so easy to use !
Thanks for the quick work on setting up security on both of our sites...the emails keep coming in showing countries and IP's being blockded that I have never heard of before
We are getting hits from every corner of the globe. By locking down every folder on our site you have given us peace of mind to know that we are a little more secure.
I appricate the tools to block Countries and locations that are notorious for hackers and ecommerce bandits.
It has been a pleasure working with you and I highly reccomend you and your team to others who need assistance staying alive."

Geeks make it look easy. After hiring the Computer Geeks for a lot of minor site work, I decided to follow Rich's advice and start from scratch. Rich & Co. designed and built a new site for my business, quickly and efficiently, with sleek, professional graphics and smooth navigability. Everything about the way Computer Geek executed this project is A++. When I wanted an arrangement that was impractical, Rich came up with better ideas for doing what I wanted -- truly the extra mile. I am really proud of the result and would recommend the Computer Geeks without reservation.
Rich saved my life!!!
I was hacked and Rich saved me. It was a terrible experience, as is always the case when you deal with some pointless, yet malevolent malware created by some greasy faced kid living in his grandmothers basement.
My host immediately took my site down, and was trying to charge me $500 to clean it so it can be opened again. Bull$#*!. Rich did it for much cheaper and also stuck around after the fact, helping really polish it off, making sure my site had regenerated into its fresh immunity. All in all, I don't know what I would do without his help. My entire business is my site.
He had it up and running the same day of the hack.
Five star service for sure!!!

I had a band website that relied on an old media player that eventually became obsolete when support for it was dropped. I had designed it myself, and in doing so I had a very specific way I wanted our music page to look and work, and in searching around for a fix I found that other web services were more interested in their own vision - rather than following the one I had in mind. I felt instinctively that my website was in much better hands when I found Rich, and he and his team at Computer Geek were terrific and patient, following my notes outlining the various areas throughout my site that needed attention, especially the music player which now works great! Professional. Prompt. Thorough. Friendly. Fair Pricing. I recommend them highly!

Personal, responsive, professional support.
I recently started my new consulting business and needed to develop a professional and accessible website. I explored several options, both self-generated platforms and professional web-site developers. I was immediately impressed with Computer Geek's personal and responsive answers to all of my questions. I hired them.
I could not be happier with that decision.
Rich, Anna, and Justin created a highly professional website for my consulting business (www.). They took the time to understand my needs, presented several options for review, and continued working on it until it was just right. Moreover, they have been incredibly responsive in their support to the site.
In short, Computer Geek has been absolutely superb.
