Domain name, Web and email Management by Dinnages (1989)
Dinnages, a family team, celebrating twenty-five years 1989-2014
Dinnages commenced trading in February 1989, primarily as dealers in transport collecables, following on from being enthusiasts and collectors of nostalgic items. As retailers for ten years, we moved over to online sales therefore understanding how to create web pages of information and sales from an early start in 1989, which led to provide free hosting & email facilities to clubs and other non-profit organisations. Assisting them in getting a grasp of the web, domain names, web page creation, and for individuals too, guiding and providing computer set-ups, and the personalised email from domain names. Described below is a brief outline of some of the organisations the webmasters have assisted, listed in decending year order, with picture links to those sites. |
Some domains and sites are NOT listed here where the client or individual has requested no publicity, with some now decommissioned through needs changing over time, but are kept here for our sample portfolio.

As an introduction page for Katie Dinnage, the page is a basic start to give acclaim to her skills as an artist with a DSLR camera, building on college skills towards University.

"The Maidstone Vintage Toy Fair" after 30 years of trading in the Lockmeadow, this established Toy Fair is well supported by both the trade and customers alike, continuing into the future as popular as ever, originally started by Dave Hatt, now organised by Geoff Martin & Mike Spencer.
The first Mid Sussex Transport Fair in the summer of 2010 was successful enough to encourage a rebooking of the Haywards Heath Clair Hall for a post Christmas Fair on the 30th December 2010. After the second May event of 2011, there is another post Christmas event too. This new domain and web page based on the original leaflet text had been supplimented with some pictures and an update for the Seasonal event, leading to another summer fair. Check back there for new updates for future events and other details. This site and domain as most of these are owned and managed by Dinnages.

The Peacehaven Model Railway Club had been operating a small club for some years with an annual exhibition and until 2007 at the Meridan centre. The 2008 event was late in organising, with a fresh team at the helm. This event moved to a Church Hall on the more visual coast road opposite a local Model Railway shop run by David Young.
The event has not carried on, and the owner of the local Railway shop has moved away from the area although the shop continues to trade, the Railway Show is no longer.

Coastal was a long established bus and coach operator established in 1973, formally for private hire of coaches, tours with a change working towards the current fleet of low-floor buses in tendered service on the East Sussex & Kent border. The domain name www.Coastal-Coaches.com was also quickly purchased following another lapsed account in 2006. This site became the 'Official' company site with full fleet list and pictures of almost all vehicles ever owned until the owner retired without notifying us to cease the site.
Free Web hosting facilities provided for the Sussex Vintage Model Railway Club, a Brighton based Model Railway Club, with background work in 2004, going live in 2006/7 2008 brought them added pages and more publicity.
A small site initially just text in 2004, later promoting a selection of pictures and price list for the timber and glass display cabinets trading as 'Pine-Cabinets' from a Brighton qualified and cabinet maker, therefore who has enjoyed providing his skills for model enthusiasts in this range of cabinets. The site moved to its own site and server late 2008, however as demand for cabinets has decreased during 2009-2010, this domain and site has ceased.

Our use of paid for domains help us avoid the pitfalls of using free email accounts and the inbox of unwanted mail!

We created a Facebook Page for this group in order to help gain further interactivty with its customers.
Our expansion of pages used a more useful web name, with the use of email on the previous domain.
Our first set of web pages were created here, with the use of email alone from 1999.
This & all other pages, images, links and listings are always under further development.
