What is the difference between dedicated & shared server hosting?
Shared server hosting is a server environment that is a joint system used
and shared by other clients, as opposed to "dedicated server hosting"
, which is another hosting option put simply means, server is devoted to your
website only and is shared by no other clients. A "Shared Server
Hosting" environment is a far cheaper way to host your website. You can
find a home for your web site on our web servers using http://yourdomainname.com
to establish a unique web presence by using our shared server hosting plans. The
domain name you select will become your unique address on the World Wide Web.

domain (e.g. WWW.YOURNAME.COM ) you will not have to use a new email
address or domain name if you change internet providers.

Can I transfer my current Domain to Final Host?
Yes, whether you place an order by telephone or online, be
sure to specify that you are requesting a transfer and NOT a new domain.
Your registrar will either have an online modification form or will send a
modification template to you for the domain transfer.
When InterNIC receives the transfer request from you they
will generate an acknowledgment request (Yes/No) and send it to the
current administrative contact of the domain. Once the administrative
contact acknowledges the transfer, InterNIC will release the transfer for
DNS propagation. The process is very quick providing the person ordering
the server is either listed as the Technical contact or the Administrative
contact with the Internic. If you are not sure, you can contact the go to http://netsol.com/cgi-bin/whois/whois
type in your domain name (yourdomain.com), and see if you are listed as administrative
contact.. If you are not you will need the permission of either contact by
the person (s) listed to switch hosts. (always be sure that all
information regarding your domain name is yours and not the hosts, that is
why we always list our customers as the Administrative and Billing
You should keep your current web hosting service while
waiting for Internic to complete the transfer. We will provide you with a
temporary address so you can upload and access your website on our
servers. All email and web pages will still be accessed from the current
site. When Internic announces the completion of the transfer there is a
24-48 hour propagation period where visitors could go to either your
domain name or the temporary website address.
