Truly awesome. In the span of one afternoon Perry set me up with a site, facebook page & twitter account. I now have a fabulous-looking website that is also user-friendly. Great experience. I will definitely be calling on the fabulous Perry Toone whenever I need anything web-related in the future.
We are in a fast-paced, tech-driven market and their responsiveness in getting small and large tasks done is phenomenal. A great advantage of our relationship is their knowledge, advice, and direction they can offer from server management and security to add-ons for our WordPress sites that improve the look and performance of our sites. Our sites perform, which generates leads that can quickly be converted to sales. We recommend Perry and the Team highly and are willing to speak with groups considering hiring them. We stand behind what we say.
Thank you again for all your assistance, it was a pleasure to work with you on my site. In times where customer service seems to have disappeared, you have shown there are still people who take pride in their work and want to give the best service possible. I would definitely work with you again in the future and I would recommend you to anyone who requires your services.
My contact was with Perry Toone was only by email, but was always readily online to help me with my questions and suggestions for new features to the application. In our contact he was always very attentive and friendly and above all meet the required deadlines and agreements that were made prior to contracting the service.
Perry Toone is an excellent designer, extremely helpful and his customer service skills are second to none in this business. I can honestly say that before using Perry, I had nothing but bad experiences with websites and he’s changed that for me!
Recently, I upgraded to a hosted website with Thexyz and hired Perry to design and build it. I couldn’t believe how quickly he translated my content and design ideas into a very professional looking and functional website, complete with e-commerce. Perry provided excellent service – always quickly (within a day or sooner) and patiently answering my questions, making design changes to my website, and providing me with additional tutorials and information, as needed. He was there with me, step-by-step, through the process. The layout and functionality of Thexyz platform also enabled me to learn how to edit my site content in WordPress, which is a valuable skill to me as a small business owner.
The designs are great, plenty of ancillary services and when our ideas hit roadblocks Perry always have an alternative solution.

A catastrophe for anybody with a .org domain was narrowly averted when the nonprofit that currently manages all the .org domains on the planet decided against selling them to a for-profit corporation...
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, better known as ICANN, announced that it received the offer in November. Private investment firm Ethos Capital, based in Pennsylvania, offered ICANN a $1 billion endowment in exchange for the Public Interest Registry, also known as PIR, which operates the .org domain. When ICANN announced they’d received this offer, it opened a flood gate of opposition letters from both the tech community and pretty much anybody with a .org domain, including a letter from California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and a letter from Elizabeth Warren and other congress members. “I’m glad ICANN listened to our concerns and blocked a private equity takeover of the .org domain registry, which would have raised costs on .org websites and threatened them with censorship. This is good news for nonprofits and everyone who relies on a free and open internet,” Warren wrote in the letter. But most of the opposition was grassroots—people who pay for .org domains and don’t want to see them fall into the hands of an organization they don’t trust. "We were... concerned about passing on the price hikes to customers who have registered .org domains," said Perry Toone, CEO of thexyz.com, an email service based in Toronto. He was so concerned about the sale, he started SaveDotOrg, a website that aims to raise awareness of the sale. "These (organizations that would be affected) are often charities or non-profit organizations. They were mostly unaware about the sale,” he said.

The email looked legitimate, so Danielle Radin clicked on the link it contained, expecting to have her products included in a holiday gift guide...
While cybercriminals strike at any time of the year, they’re particularly active during the holiday and income tax filing seasons when computer users expect to see more emails — and scammers are increasingly targeting individual small businesses with phishing scams, sending messages that look legitimate but do harm instead. An unsuspecting owner or employee clicks on a link or attachment and like Radin finds that malicious software has invaded their PCs. Cybersecurity experts find that criminals who used to blanket thousands of computer users in hopes of fooling a handful have refined their methods. Scammers find small businesses through websites, social media sites and by combing email address books. They also mine personal data from breaches at retailers and other large companies. Then, using a process called social engineering, they construct emails that increasingly look realistic, as if they truly come from a boss, colleague, friend, potential client or vendor, a bank and even the IRS. “In the last year or two they’ve been running more professional campaigns,” says Perry Toone, owner of Thexyz, an email service provider based in Toronto. “It can take a couple of minutes for me to determine that they’re phishing scams. That tells me they’re doing a very good job.”

It was a gradual idea that slowly manifested into what is known as Thexyz today. After recently qualifying as a French polisher, I was adamant to run my own business preferred traditional techniques to modern technology.
