How long does it take before my domain name is active?

How do I transfer files to my web site ?

Files must be transferred to the web server via File Transport Protocol (FTP). CuteFTP is VERY easy to use, and has a very intuitive, easy to use interface. The lower left panel is YOUR COMPUTER - the lower right panel is THE REMOTE SITE - in this instance, your ftp site. Everything is drop and drag - to upload, drag the appropriate file from the left panel to the right panel. To download a file on the remote server, simply reverse the process - drag the file on the remote server - lower right hand panel - over to the lower left panel. Easy!


Will I have unlimited access to update my pages ?

You have unlimited access via FTP to your site over the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can "upload" files to your site - in other words, transfer files from your computer to one of our web servers on the Internet - and you can also "download" files from your site - in other words, transfer files from your site on our web servers, to your computer.


Can multiple domains point to the same HTML files ?

Yes, you can stack additional domain names to your account for a one time $10
setup fee per domain. Domain name stacking means we add the domain onto
your existing domain name. This is generally used for example when you want
.com .net and .org of the same domain name to resolve to the same location.


Can I use my account for commercial purposes ?

Yes, you can use your account for commercial purposes. The World Wide Web has become a most efficient and cost-effective means of making information available to the users of the internet community. If desired, secure server is available which provides an environment whereby payment information (such as a credit card number) can be transmitted from web browser to web server in an encrypted mode.


Can I resell space within my own account ?

Yes. You can resell space within your account. However, you will be responsible for its content and data transfer. You can acquire multiple FTP accounts for shared access.
