What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the part of your web address that not only identifies who
you are, but tells the server where you live on the Internet. It appears
in the URL bar (address bar) of your browser, and typically begins with
"www" and is frequently followed by something along the lines
of "your_name.com". Domain names are assigned by Internic, an
organization responsible for passing out the names so that two people, businesses,
groups, etc. don't get the same one. Since your domain name is what identifies
your website from all the other websites in the world, it is important that
it be unique to you.
But how do you make sure nobody else is
using your domain name? The disappointing fact is that in a lot of cases,
someone may be. That's why it is important to do a search (Panache can do
this for you) to see if the domain name you want is available. If it is,
you must pay Internic a pre-payment of $70 for two years ($35 a year thereafter)
to use that name. They register the name you select with the IP Address
of your Server space so that when people type in "www.your_name.com",
they are transported directly to the front page of your site. If you wish
to have your own domain name, Panache can do the necessary registration
for you at no additional charge. Although using a domain name looks more
professional, and helps users find your site quickly, it is not necessary
to purchase a domain name from Internic if you do not wish to. Your site
will still be accessible to users of the net by using a search engine, or
by typing in your entire internet address in the URL bar.
If you have already purchased your domain
name from Internic, you may disregard the $100 fee
referred to in the Start-up Charges. Please let us know and we will contact
Internic with your new IP Addess.
What is the Client Gateway?
In order to offer you space for
commercial purposes in economical 1MB increments, it is necessary that we
allow our Secondary Domain Account clients to share an IP Address. A website
which shares an IP Address with other websites may still have it's own domain
name, and be accessed by typing "www.your_name.com" in the URL
bar. However, due to the limitations of some older browsers still in existence
(used by less than 5% of the Internet world), a small group of users will
arrive initially at the Client Gateway. The Client Gateway is our unique
solution to the limtations of sharing an IP Address. We list your company
in our Directory of sites, providing a "gateway" for the user to connect to your
site. If you have questions
about this feature, please visit our Client Gateway [Under Construction]
and see how it works.
What is a Data Transfer?
Data transfer simply refers to the amount of traffic your site receives
from users. A site which is 1MB in size would have to be accessed, in its
entirety, 160 times per month
to reach the allowed amount of Data Transfer. A surcharge will apply to
Data Transfer in excess
of the limit.
What if my site requires more than the
30 minutes per month of maintenance included in the Plan?
If the activity required to maintain your website exceeds the complimentary
30 minutes per month, you will be billed an Account Administration fee at
the rate of $45.00/hr. (pro-ratable) for the time in excess. If we see that
the maintenance activity that you request in a given month may push you
over your limits, we will advise you of that possibility at the time you
make your request. Normal account administration should not exceed the allotted
30 minutes per month, and you will be given an itemization of the charges,
should this occur. In cases where you plan to make daily changes to your site, you may wish to consult
us about teaching someone within your organization how to perform simple site administration duties.
Is there a minimum contract?
After you have paid your Start-up Charge and have had your website installed
on the server, Panache will continue to invoice you on a monthly basis (for
amount of space used) for as long as your files reside on the Server. There
is no minimum contract after the period covered by your payment has expired.
You may decide to renew
your service on a monthly basis. If you wish to avoid the inconvenience
of monthly invoices, you may pre-pay annually or semi-annually.
Does Panache provide Dial-Up Services?
No. The access included in Panache's hosting plans is limited to the hosting
of your website so that it is accessible on the Internet. We do not provide
individual personal access to the internet (via modem dial-up), a service
which is usually billed on the basis of hourly usage, similar to your telephone
bill. Many of our clients already have dial-up service through well-known
providers such as MCI, AT&T, and America Online. If you need Dial-Up service, we suggest you contact one
of these, or check your local yellow pages for alternative providers.
