Our site reaches thousands of visitors and delivers confirmed results to our customers.

Everyone at Jacarlin is very passionate about specializing in display-based online-based technology. The website has 6 main areas. We hope that you find it intuitive to navigate and learn new things as you read on. For starters, you can read about our website development and design services or view our most recent work.
We offer design, consultation, plan formulation and implementation of the online related system for multinational corporations, big businesses, administration agencies, little/medium firms, as well as non-profit organizations.
FastComet: How did the idea of starting Jacarlin Web Solutions come to mind?
I registered my Company here in Malaysia as Jacarlin SDN Bhd and I could then deal with many large companies as they preferred working with a company instead of Freelancers.
FastComet: What kind of services do you offer?
Jacob Arlington: Well my main work always is based on Joomla CMS and Magneto but sometimes I work with WordPress too, We can do any type of website – informational, Social network, Educational, E-commerce, Government, Integration, etc.
FastComet: Do you maintain an active blog and how is that affecting your sales?
Jacob Arlington: Yes I have a blog and that is really helpful nowadays especially for search engine. I also share my blog posts via LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook and this bring many clients to my website.
FastComet: Can you run us through the process of creating a logo for a client?
Jacob Arlington: It’s quite straight forward but can be little different for different clients and I can separate it in 4 different stages that are listed below:
- Design Brief: Conduct a questionnaire or an interview with the client to get the design brief.
- Research: Conduct research focused on the industry itself, on its history, and on the competitors.
- Reference: Conduct research into logo designs that have been successful and current styles and trends that may be related to the design brief.
- Sketching & Conceptualizing: Develop the logo design concept(s) around the brief and researches.
FastComet: We see you offer a lot of Joomla specialized services. Do you have plans to provide the same for other platforms as well?
Jacob Arlington: I love Joomla as started from Mambo a long time ago and I still can’t find any other platform than even comes close to it. I use Magneto as my main e-commerce tool and there are no signs of a needed change.
About 3 years ago I found a really wonderful tool called MageBridge. As it is written on the MageBridge website:
“Joomla! is the most popular CMS system, but it’s own e-commerce abilities are missing out. Magento is the most popular webshop, but it’s CMS capabilities are limited. With MageBridge you combine the best of two worlds. Your webshop can be built using the flexible and user-friendly features of the Joomla! Architecture, but still you get the full power of Magento e-commerce.”
FastComet: Can you tell us more about the Support you offer?
Jacob Arlington: We offer support for website maintenance, server administration, security audits, and campaign management.
FastComet: Have you used the cPanel Site Publisher and do you have plans to use it for future websites?
Jacob Arlington: Not at all, as I really prefer working with Joomla and Magento. After spending a lot of time on those platforms, now I can troubleshoot almost every single problem without much of research.
FastComet: How would you rate our Cloud VPS service which you are currently using?
The service is great and this is the first time I found a company that really acts on what has been set as terms on its website. Also the FastComet support is rock solid. My website works smoothly with no problems at all and I highly recommended you to all of my clients as well.
FastComet: If there is anything else you wish to share with us, now is the time.
I really appreciate this opportunity that was given to me by FastComet and I hope that good service will become the first priority to all hosting company like it is in the case of FastComet.
