Pre-sales Questions

Is my credit card information totally safe with you?
As we use a third party credit card processor, we don't have your credit card information with us. And therefore we don't store your credit card information on our system. We believe that your credit card information is totally secure.

Do you offer unlimited bandwidth?
No, it is not possible to offer unlimited bandwidth at all. That would be lying to our customers. Like everybody else, we are required to pay for the amount of bandwidth we consume to our upstream providers. We then in turn pass this fee to our customers in order to provide enough resources to our customers. This also applies to other hosts as well, not just us.

Can I host adult related sites?
Yes, we allow adult content as long as it abides by local laws, no child pornography of any kind is tolerated! You will be terminated without a refund and will get reported to the proper agencies! We do not tolerate it at all.

Do you allow MP3 files? Do you allow streaming of videos?
Yes, we have no problem as long as those MP3’s and video files are legitimate. Please make sure you select the proper plan which allows it. We suggest a higher bandwidth and space plan because most likely, since its mp3s and videos they tend to be bigger files and once they are streamed they consume a lot of bandwidth.

How soon will my account be activated?
It takes up to  24 hours to activate your account. Due to risky nature of web hosting business, we can't allow instant account activation. We verify all accounts manually to make sure there is no fraud either.

Billing Questions

This will be done at the owner's option of course, so you will have the choice to continue using more data transfer and pay more at the end of the month, or stop using more data transfer but no need to pay more at the end of the month.

I don't have credit card. Can I do a wire transfer, check or money order?
Yes, however if you pay by money order, the hosting plan must be prepaid for the year. It is not feasible to be accepting money orders every month for a few dollars. If you want to wire us money or send us a money please send it to: ATTN make all checks payable to Giampiero Di Campo

Account Questions

Can I have more than one domain pointed to my account?
Yes, for an additional one time fee of $16.99. This means all of your domain pointed to one account will exactly have the same content as the other. For example you have www.x.com and you also have www.y.com  you but hosting for www.x.com and want www.y.com to go to the same website content as www.x.com then this is what you need!

Do you support subdomains?

What is a  subdomain?
A subdomain is any term you want before your domain. For example you have a domain
www.x.com and say you want to create another webpage. You can create a subdomain another.x.com and it can be like a whole separate webpage. In essence it is a domain as well. So  it is a very nice feature to have.

Technical Questions

What DNS should my domain name point to?



I have been notified that my account has been set up but my site is still not active
If you have recieved a notification email and its been over 48 hours, it means that you either did not point your domain name to the right DNS servers or your ISP's DNS server has not yet been updated. It generally takes 24 hours for domain names to become active. This is just how the internet works; there is no way we can speed up the process.
