Three steps to getting www.yourdomain.com on the Internet.
Choose Midcoast Internet Solutions to host your page.
Have your domain (www.yourdomain.com) officially registered. If
your domain is already registered a DNS update will have to be
done to move your hosting to Midcoast. (See our FAQ section.)
Design or have your web page designed and uploaded.
1. Choose Midcoast Internet Solutions to host your page.
Setup $50 This is a one-time fee that MIS charges to prepare
our server to host your designed web page with your registered
domain as the title.
Monthly Charge $20 This is the monthly charge for hosting
your domain. This service comes with 20 megabytes of space, includes
up to 5 domain email boxes (example:email@example.com,
org, net), and 1 gigabyte of throughput a month.
2. Get your domain (www.your-domain.com) officially registered.
Registering a domain is a process that allows you to legally
own a domain. It is similar to registering a trademark. Registering
a domain is a process that should be performed by a qualified
hosting service such as Midcoast Internet Solutions. If you sign
up for a hosting service with Midcoast Internet we do not charge
to register your domain name. This does not mean it is free. The
registrar will charge for the time period in which the domain
is regisered. This is generally 2 years but can be longer or shorter
periods at customer request.
Currently the charge for a registered domain is $40 for two years.
We register this through a service that allows us to act as your
registrar and offer the highest quality customer service to you.
In order to register your domain name and start the Virtual Domain
Basic process we do need you to fill out our online form and provide
all the information including a credit card number for registration
charges. We accept Visa and Mastercard.
If your domain is already registered then you won't need to include
the credit card info. We will need any information you may have
on file to help us change the DNS information for you. This may
be a user name/password or something along this line. If you are
not sure we can look into this for you once you have signed up.
3. Design or have your web page designed.
Midcoast Internet Solutions provides you with the space for your
web page, however MIS does not perform any design work. Design
involves the creation of the page and uploading your page into
the space we have provided. Design may also include consulting,
search enginework, mail/forms, web counters and updating your
web page. Designers will have their own unique services.
You may also design your own page. This is something that one
should attempt only if they feel comfortable doing so. Design
can be a very in depth process. One should be familiar with using
a web page design program. One should also know how to use an
FTP program. Doing a web page right can be a very involved process.
MIS does not assist in the web page design process.
Why host with Midcoast Internet Solutions?
Midcoast Internet Solutions offers a high quality web hosting
service for a competitive price. We feel that nobody is offering
the quality we offer for such a low price. Cheap web hosting,
like all things, is cheap for a reason.
Unlike many hosting services that will put hundreds of web pages
on one server, we at MIS limit that amount to ensure fast load
times and high quality. This ensures that your site is always
fast responding, and reliable, with room for growth. We consider
high quality to be the hallmark of our hosting services. You can
communicate with us via email, telephone, fax or even in person.
You can actually meet the people who build and maintain the servers
your web pages reside on. The fact that we actually host your
web pages in house and have the expertise to take care of them
is almost unheard of among our local competitors. This offers
you the piece of mind of knowing where your pages are and where
they are being taken care of.
If you are interested in knowing more about our services please
feel free to give us a call. We would love to talk to you about
your web hosting needs.
