We reserve the right to cancel any web page that contains offensive material or any illegal or pirated material; as well as any account sending spam or unsolicited emails, or emails containing any of the items described above. Prices and terms subject to change.

1. Free domain name renewal requires using our domain name registry service.

2. Alternate domain name would be a second domain name that points/redirects to the primary domain name. There is no additional disk space, email addresses, etc. associated with it. Requires using our domain name registry service. Additional alternate domain names can be purchased for $25 per year.

3. Those packages that support sending and receiving emails allow you to send and receive emails from your domain using names such as Bill.Smith@yourdomain com, Bill@yourdomain com, sales@yourdomain com, etc. Instructions are provided for POP3 emails using Outlook Express (other email programs such as Outlook and Eudora can also be used). Web mail interface available. Each email account comes with 250mb of space (Business PRO package comes with 2gb of space for each email account). Additional email accounts available for only $5/month per email account. We strongly suggest that email programs be set up as POP3 and emails be deleted from the mail server either immediately or after 30-60 days. This allows you to download emails to multiple devices without running the risk of exceeding the mail server space allocations. If mail server is "filled" up then you will not be able to send or receive emails.

4. Secured email is subject to same space restrictions as normal email accounts. Secured email requires SSL certificate (included with Business Pro account - see note #11 below). Secured email includes special HTTPS web mail access which can be accessed on any standard browser (IE, Firefox, MAC, etc.). Mail is encrypted between your PC and our mail server. Mail sent to other mail servers (Hotmail, etc.) is subject to their security standards. Mail sent between two or more accounts on our server is secure from user to mail server to user. Ask for complete information.

5. Email Aliases: All packages allow you to receive (but not send) emails to your domain that are forwarded to another email account (your gmail, yahoo, aol, msn, hotmail, etc. email account). This allows you to use such names as Bill.Smith@yourdomain.com or sales@yourdomain.com even if your package doesn't allow you to send emails. Each email alias must be requested individually. Email aliases can be very effective, but you do need to be aware of one problem with any email alias. If the email is forwarded to an email address with a different domain then the one contained in the alias (ie: forwarding bill@domain1 to bob@yahoo), then the receiving domain's email server (yahoo's in this example) might tag the email as SPAM. So, if you want to use email aliases, you will need to run a test to insure that the emails are delivered to you and don't end up in a SPAM folder, and if they do you will need to adjust your SPAM settings to allow the emails to be delivered to you.

6. No one likes getting spam. For our BASIC PACKAGE, we use a special process that reduces the amount of spam that you receive. Like almost everyone else, we check incoming mail against a list of known spammers. But spammers manage to get around that process all the time. So, in addition, we use a special initial mail delay technique that stops spammers but allows real emails to get through to you. Subsequent emails come through with no delay. For our BUSINESS PACKAGES, we use SPAM ASSASSIN. Each business account is able to have their settings customized to suit their individual needs.

7. Disk space used by web site is for actual HTML, CSS, Javascripts, images, audio files, databases, etc. This space is separate from the email storage space.

8. MySQL is a database. Databases are used to create dynamic interactive web sites, such as E-commerce sites. These sites usually have a higher development cost.

9. Additional web support charged at standard rates. Work is charged in 1 hour increments. Business standard rate is $50/hour. Non-profit standard rate is $25/hour. Unused "credits" do not accumulate. In order to control the content of web pages designed and hosted by us, we do not allow customers to make their own changes or to upload their own files. We handle all of this for them.

10. Password Protected Directories are for read-only files, uploaded securely by us for you. Ask about additional restrictions.

11. SSL certificates require $50 set up fee.

Don't buy a higher priced package then you actually need. When we get together to discuss your project, we can talk about which package is best for you.
