QUESTION: What is Virtual Web Hosting?
Virtual Web Hosting basically means that you can get a domain name (www.yourname.com) and have that domain name point
to a space on our servers. This will also enable aliases for your email so that new e-mail addresses like,
email@example.com will work.
You can change plan types at anytime by sending your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting our Customer
Service Department. A one-time $20 fee applies to downgrades on our plans.

QUESTION: Can I transfer an existing domain name to BusinessPower.com from another company?
Yes. When you place an order with BusinessPower.com, you will specify whether it is a new domain name or a
transfer of an existing domain name. You should keep the service at the present site while waiting for InterNIC to complete
the transfer. When InterNIC announces the completion of the transfer there is a 72 hour period where visitors could go to
either site. InterNIC will send an e-mail to your previous host informing them of the change. Your previous host will authorize
and e-mail back to InterNIC. Sometimes it may be necessary to contact your old host and/or InterNIC by phone.
QUESTION: How do I transfer files to my web site?
Files must be transferred to the web server via File Transport Protocol (FTP). If you are using our FrontPage server, you

email@example.com and we‚ll be more than happy to help you.

QUESTION: Does BusinessPower.com provide dialup service?
With major companies such as AT&T, MCI, Netcom and AOL providing dialup services, we felt we should
concentrate on providing fast, high quality web hosting services. Therefore, BusinessPower.com does not provide dialup
services. One of the major advantages of not sharing our connection with modem users is the fact that nearly all the bandwidth
we offer is reserved for serving your web documents.
WebTrends generates a report about activity on my Web server. Where does it get the information?

No, BusinessPower.com does not allow the placement on our Webspace of any sexually explicit materials,
whether they be in graphical, textual, video, sound, encrypted, protected, proprietary, or any other formats. While we are
committed to the protection of the free speech of our clients, we can not permit sexually explicit material on our Webspace for
many reasons. We object to the hosting of adult content on moral grounds and for the logistical problems that it would entail,
i.e. greatly fluctuating bandwidth, security problems, and legal considerations. Adult sites can place unexpected and greatly
varying demands upon the host dedicated Web server thus jeopardizing the security of all other Virtual Web Server accounts
hosted on that dedicated server.
No, BusinessPower.com does not allow the Email POP3 accounts or the BusinessPower.com Email Servers to
be used for the purpose of sending unsolicited or "bulk Email". The reasons for this are quite numerous but the main problem
that this use and/or abuse would cause involves the security of our Web and Email servers against retaliatory flames, so called
Email "bombs", and various attacks, that such use would inevitably generate. While we make every effort to secure our
servers from these kinds of attacks, if we were to permit our clients to engage in "bulk Email" practices we would jeopardize
the security and integrity of the Email and Web services for all our clients.

Disk space refers to the amount of server disk storage your account is allocated. This space is used to store

A Virtual Domain means having your own domain name (http://www.yourcompany.com) without having to install
expensive server hardware and software. With a Virtual Domain, you utilize our server's storage space, however you are still
professionally represented via your own personal Internet web address domain name (www.yourcompany.com) and by your
own personal e-mail address domain name (firstname.lastname@example.org).
What if you could set up storefronts - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - in every worldwide location in which
there was a phone line? You know that your business would grow; you would be able to reach customers that you weren't
able to before. Instead of being within the reach of only those who walk by your store on main street or see your ad in the
yellow pages, with Internet Suite you can reach people in the next state or across the world.
It's good security practice to limit the validity period of any certificate. Every Certificate Authority limits the
validity of its roots, so all CA's are affected by root expiration and rollover. The only browser affected is Netscape Navigator
3.x. After July 27th, those users who have not gone through the quick rollover process will see a dialog box stating that the
root certificate that issued this site cert has expired, and giving them the option to continue or cancel. The "continue" button
will let them establish a secure session as usual. The quick rollover process eliminates these warnings till 2020.
