The name server information is below. Only the Admin and the tech contact of your site can move your dns to our servers. See help file here.

a. New domain registrations can take up to 3 working days to propagate through the Net. You will know that your domain name is active by typing in your URL (your new domain name) and finding the site active. You will have access to your IP address before the domain is active, so you can easily set up your account and website so it's ready to go right away.

a. Refunds are only available within the first 30 days. If you are not happy, we will give refund under the following terms. No resold accounts were added to your account and there will be no refunds on new domain names.
To cancel your account we must have 30 days written notice prior to the renewal date.

a. Your emails have more to do with site building and are not related to server issues they will go un answered until all sever related issues are taken care of. Meaning ... we do not teach you how to build a web site for the prices listed as hosting plans. Our # 1 job is to make sure when someone types in it works.

a. Our techs are paged by our systems when they go down. Our systems will re boot after 10 minutes of down time automatically.

a. Our sites are all on different machines. Each machine has about 250 sites. If one machine is down then it does not affect others.

a. Contracts are month to month unless you have signed up for a 3, 6 or 12 month account. If you pay by more than one month and we remove your account for some reason we will prorate and refund your card.

a. Yes you may.

a. NO... not directly, but we will gladly refer you to the experts.

a. When your billing date comes up, we will prorate and charge the accounts you added in the past month. We charge you for the past month and the new month. Example: You ordered a $4.00 reseller account on the 15th and your billing date was the first. You will be charged $2.00 for the 15 days and then $4.00 for the current billing cycle. * Note: It is our common policy not to prorate resellers who add several accounts in a months time. We use this policy as many of you work with us on support issues.
