In a word, Service. We limit our number of customers so that each one receives the attention that they deserve. We believe in personal service, attention to detail and responsiveness to requests from our customers. We are a local business that understands your business, and we strive to make your site work for you.
|How do I move my site?
The process for moving your site from one hosting service to another is really quite simple. Upon your approval, we contact Network Solutions (the company that you purchased your domain name from) and request a change of domain. You will receive an email from Network Solutions asking you to approve the transfer. This transfer usually happens within a matter of a few days. During the transfer process, we will move a copy of your site onto our server and fully test it to ensure a seamless transition.
|How much will it cost?
At IslandWeb we don't charge you a fee to move your domain and setup your new account. We do this as a service to thank you for your business.
The charge for hosting your site (up to 40 megabytes of space) is $200 per year pre-paid. For those needing secure server options the charge is a total of $300 per year. We offer the options of paying by check, or for your convenience, by credit card (VISA MC).
|Do you provide internet access?
No. Due to the fact that our scores of customers are located over a wide area of the planet it is impossible for us to know what services are available in their particular area. We suggest that you consult your local phonebook yellow pages to see what is offered for internet connectivity in your locale.
|OK, what do I need to do?
It's easy! Just call us at 207.288.4725, or email us, and we'll get the process started. We'll gather the needed information about you and your domain name, collect your payment for the year's hosting, and before you know it you'll be enjoying the benefits of IslandWeb. No hassles, no hidden charges, just good local, personal service.
