ON OUR SECURE SERVER
Every website on the internet
has a server computer which acts as a "host" computer. This host
computer is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day. It stores all of the web
page (html) files, graphics and any other graphics which your website contains
so that your website and all its contents are available to users worldwide at
Website hosting is essential
to the success of your website. All successful websites are hosted using their
own unique domain names. Website Hosting provides your customers, friends, and
colleagues with the ability to access your web pages on the Internet. It also
provides you the ability to send and receive e-mail worldwide using your
domain name. With our services you will be able to keep your domain name (for
example, http://www.yourname.com) and e-mail addresses permanently (for
example, email@example.com). You cannot do this using the popular commercial
online services such as AOL, Compuserve, Earthlink, Geocities, etc. because
once you leave these services you lose your e-mail address, website
address--and all your hard work. It's something they don't tell you. With our
Website Hosting Service you KEEP your website address and e-mail address

In order to have a website
"hosted" you need to register a domain name and open a website
hosting account with a service provider. We provide both of these services in
one step using our Secure
On-line FastForm. You get FREE Domain Name Registration when you

A domain name is a friendly
Internet name address that provides an easy way for you to locate people,
computers, and resources on the internet (ie., siteleader.com). A domain name
is a part of a computer hierarchical numbering system that represent IP
numbers. IP numbers or addresses are used by computers to find other computers
on the internet. For example, siteleader.com's IP address is 126.96.36.199 .
Each IP address has four sets of numbers separated by periods. IP addresses
range from 4 to 12 digits. Each set of numbers range in value from 0 to 255.
Names are easier to remember than four sets of
numbers. And Siteleader.com can register your domain name quickly and easily
using our quick & easy Domain
Registration Process (secure forms).
To build a website, we suggest
learning HTML code or using one of the commercially available HTML editing
programs (Dreamweaver, Microsoft FrontPage, Claris Homepage). We also offer
page design and development services. For more information, we offer these options: a Web Today Hosting and Design Package or Custom Web Site Development
Once you have signed
up for one of our hosting plans, you can "upload" your website
using a fun little tool called FTP (file transfer protocol). FTP allows you to
transfer the pages you have created on your computer over to our internet
servers. If you don't have FTP software we can assist you in obtaining it for
free. If you are a Microsoft FrontPage user, you can use the upload
option to transfer your webpage to our servers.
You can do your own website
hosting with a special computer server using the correct hardware and software
system for about $12,000 plus T-1 internet access fees ($800/month). We offer
consulting services to provide this should you desire to go this route.
