Incorporated in 1985 as a Technically focused Music Production company that builds & maintains computers to generate media content in various formats.
Being located in Toronto, Canada has many benefits, one being that Intel, Apple and Microsoft have “boots on the ground” here, and so too do many other technology companies.
I attend many local Conferences and Trade Fairs every year both physical and virtual, and the people at these events teach me the current direction of their technologies, and how to “build better”.
I am in awe at how fast things are moving, and sometimes that can be fun, and sometimes not – it’s a fine line that requires steady maintenance; and that’s what I do most days; for myself and for the people who trust and enable me to do that work for them… as a service called “GoodMedia“.
Good Media Inc is continuously refining independent methods of delivering content using the internet hosting services of GoodMedia Online Inc. ->
To do that, Good Media Inc has Partner Agreements with:
APC / Eaton
Kerio Technologies, Inc.
OpenText / FirstClass
Scott Goodfellow attended every possible course at Apple Canada in the 1990’s, and Good Media Inc operated as an independent Apple Dealer and Apple Authorized Service & Repair Technician until Apple's own Apple Stores eventually dominated.
Good Media Inc also has Reseller Agreements with:
As a Domain Registrar (reseller with TuCows), I register new domains, and transfer and manage existing domains. I host these domains on GoodMedia’s 3 domain name servers (DNS machines).
With the domain securely locked down, I'm then able to Administrate secure email accounts & web sites using GoodMedia’s custom built, clustered machines. Currently all tech marketing describes these kinds of services as “Cloud” hosting, but in fact the core services have been exactly the same for over 30 years.
This works simply because GoodMedia sticks to the core services and is entirely owned and self contained. Over the years, deliberately "keeping it simple" has turned out to be a Good Thing, and there are smart clients who appreciate that, and who help keep the competition (Google, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon) at bay… much appreciated clients !
Incorporated in 1991 as a Private Hosting “Cloud” for DNS, Mail and Web data.
GoodMedia is Private “Cloud” Hosting.
GoodMedia is literally a cluster of virtual machines served on a cluster of physical machines that are connected to the fibre backbone of the Internet, in a downtown Toronto data centre.
GoodMedia securely hosts and manages the main services needed by all businesses and entrepreneurial individuals.
GoodMedia provides a specialized and more personally focused service when compared with the large providers, who typically sub-contract hosting services as a subsidized sideline.
GoodMedia enables you to move your internet connection source (like Bell & Rogers in Canada) seamlessly between internet providers around the world, with no effect on your core services; domains, email & web.

Beyond the Administration of setting up an individual or a company on GoodMedia OnLine, (or even independently of GMOL), there is often the necessity of providing hardware, software, setup, configuration and consulting services that enhance a client’s ability to more effectively use the Internet in general, and GMOL specifically, with all Desktop, Laptop and Mobile devices.
Scott Goodfellow as Good Media Inc., has been working with computers since 1982 and has accumulated an extensive knowledge base and depth of experience with hardware and software, equally across all versions of Macintosh and Windows operating systems, including supporting applications and utilities, with an emphasis on Media production.
With computers continually changing, Scott custom builds and delivers a "turn-key" solution; personally configured machines using the most efficient computer components available at that time.
He maintains and updates corporate computers and personal devices, by updating drivers, applications, operating systems, hardware firmware / BIOS updates, etc…
Quality specs in a planned hardware purchase and ongoing maintenance ultimately saves people a lot of time and money in the long run.
The result is a faster more efficient and reliable machine that stays in service longer by having increased compatibility with current software and security standards, and thereby a happier / less frustrating experience for the client.
GoodMedia clients typically exist via “word of mouth” as there has never been any form of advertising, so clients often tend to know of each other and so use GMOL to more easily work and collaborate together.
As the rise of Technology completely changed the Music industry, I eventually built a business around helping people adapt to constant change. I manage people's admin details (id/passwords for mail, domains, ftp, etc) - things that most people don't want to manage, or simply are not able to do by themselves.
These direct personal services eventually grew into building, deploying and administrating networked devices as a business. I administrate Barracuda, Cisco, Sonicwall & Watchguard firewalls plus numerous dns, mail, web, ftp & database servers, then manage the file access, user accounts and backups for people.
I constantly learn, maintain, build, fix, upgrade, and solve a range of technology issues for people “for a living”. Every day is different - by design.
All Good Media Inc billing is for time and machine materials as personal consulting services.
GoodMedia OnLine Inc uses reoccurring payments for dns, mail and web hosting services.
Helping people is a good business model over time; for many it's been a long tech journey:
I’ve been building for as far back as I can remember; from LEGO, from model cars to restoring classic cars; these days it is computers, networks, EV's and solar power. I’ve been tinkering for most of my life with what are all infinitely complex “puzzles” to me and I "solve" them, one day at a time.
My daily work is to solve and complete large and small technical projects for GoodMedia OnLine Inc., and I apply that accumulated experience as Good Media Inc to offer very reliable cloud data services to people who appreciate and value the privacy of their personal mail and web browser accessible data.
From just a cursory or complete in depth assessment, I am able to discuss a client’s individual working methods and requirements, and match that with current technologies of the day.
I build new, or upgrade existing client devices, machines or servers, toward achieving more efficient and secure working methods.
Included; is long term private data management & administration - a less visible but highly valued service for people who don't want to manage annual domain and ssl certificate renewals (for example).
Being on call 24 hours a day and running a data server the size of GoodMedia OnLine for 30 years has provided solid lessons into how to listen to people and provide disciplined, consistent results.
Scott Goodfellow offers his end to end technical experience to acquire, configure, deliver, monitor and maintain a client’s home and office data networks, for all WIN10, MacOS client and server devices, on a hourly, daily, monthly, and annual basis.
Many current clients have been hosted on GoodMedia since its inception in 1991.
