What is an Autoresponder?
An autoresponder will automatically reply to any e-mail sent to a particular address. For example, you may have an autoresponder for the address of sales@yourdomainname. Any e-mail sent to this address will automatically be replied to. The reply will be a preset message you create. Among other things this feature is useful for creating "request more information" e-mail addresses.
Can I establish SSL on my web site?
Yes, you can! If you need SSL in your website please contact us and we will help. SSL is great to encrypt data and is known to provide some SEO benefits on-line. This encryption protocol can be very useful if you have clients who will send information (e.g. personal information or credit card information) through your web site. As web security experts, we can help guide you through the process of securing your web site.
What databases do you currently support?
We support MySQL, MSSQL and all ODBC compliant databases such as Access.
Do you offer dial-up Internet access?
No, we are not an ISP. You will need to sign up for Internet access with a local provider. Our web servers are dedicated solely to web site hosting in order to guarantee a high level of performance at a very affordable price.
