Midcoast Internet Solutions (MIS) can provide you with your own
"Virtual Domain." We can have a domain name registered(such
as your-domain.com). You can advertise your web pages to be located
at www.yourbusiness.com, and your email can come in to email@example.com.
This will make your internet presence:
- more professional
- have a web address that is easier to write and remember
- look like your web page has its own server
- fast--your virtual server is attached to multiple redundant
T3 or faster connections
Three steps to getting www.your-domain.com on the internet.
Choose Midcoast Internet Solutions to host your page
Have your domain (www.your-domain.com) officially registered--this
is required. If your domain is
already registered a DNS update will have to be done to move your
hosting to Midcoast. See our
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
register your domain and prepare our server to host your designed
web page with your registered domain as the title.
Monthly Charge $35: This is the monthly charge for hosting
your domain. This service comes with 60 megabytes of space on
a machine that hosts no more that 50 sites per machine. It also
includes up to 20 domain email boxes for your domain. Example:
(firstname.lastname@example.org, org, net).
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 registered. 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 domain hosting
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.
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 engine work, mail/forms, web counters and updating your
web page. Designers will have their own unique services.
here to see our own listing of local designers.
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 Virtual Domain service.
You can communicate with us via email, telephone, fax or even
in person. You can actually meet the people who built 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.
