What Is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is basically rented disk space and bandwidth through a "web host" allowing you to upload your files to a space on a server owned by the web host that is "online".
Since we host thousands of web sites, we have the programs and infrastructure needed to allow you to have your site's files uploaded and accessible on the internet in a matter of minutes.

What is a good bitrate to use for my Recorded Streaming Audio?
When storing audio in a compressed format (such as MP3) a bitrate of 160Kbps will provide a good balance between audio quality and file size. If you wish to store higher-quality audio without adding much more data, experiment with the Variable Bit Rate (VBR) options for your audio encoding software.
Do you register .tv domains?
Yes, .tv domains are $50 a year
What processors do you use on your Linux Servers?
Our Linux servers use Intel processors.
What does the Free transfer to your servers from a previous host mean?
We will copy your website files and databases to our servers from your previous webhost after you provide us with the necessary login details (FTP and/or Control Panel). After transferring your files we will test your website to make sure it's working correctly. You will be notified to test further to make sure the transfer was satisfactory.
Finally you should change the DNS servers for your domain to point to our name servers. It usually takes 4-24hrs for your address to propagate through out the internet after changing the DNS.
- We do NOT host adult sites, nor sites which generally would be perceived as being of adult nature based on language, content, photos, images, including nudity of any form. If any of these occur on an account the account will be terminated.
Will There Be Advertisements Placed On My Site?
No, we do not place any advertisement of any type on your site. You have complete control over your site's content.
