How to Share Access to Your GoDaddy Website

If you’re hosting your website on GoDaddy, there is an easy way to share access to venders without sharing your direct login information. It’s best to use the sharing tools built within a service instead of your personal username and password. Not only does it give you more options of what someone else can control…

Heed Google Analytics’ Warning About Data Retention—Or Risk Losing Years of Stored Info

Guess what type of email we love getting here at Valet? Anything that isn’t a notification.

It’s not that notifications upset us. We know they’re necessary. It’s just that we receive so many of them.

The reason we get so many notifications is that we support and love so many websites. Each of those websites is wired up to many services, and all of those services send out notifications.

However, since every notification is potentially super-important, we take the time to review all of them in great detail.

Actually, truth be told, it feels more like what we do is decode rather than review them. But it’s only by carefully deconstructing and digesting each notification that we’re able to stay on top of all the technical mumbo-jumbo and geeky stuff (and in so doing spare our awesome clients the trouble of doing any of that work themselves).

It’s a very good thing that we follow this practice because otherwise the super-duper-important (and interesting) email that arrived this week from our friends at Google Analytics might have gone overlooked.
