 What are web options, and which one do I want?

Web options as offered by enterDomain, consist of Web Space, and Web Forwarding.

Web space with enterDomain is to say that your web content will be housed on a hard drive that is part of the internet, and administered by enterDomain.

Web forwarding with enterDomain is to say that your web content will be housed and administered on someone else's hard drive that is part of the internet, but still accessed by help of enterDomain.

A person who is concerned about reliability of their web site (minimizing the time that it spends being unavailable) or the speed of which they can deliver their information to clients, would be safer to have their web site hosted by enterDomain (The Web Space option).

The reason for this, being that enterDomain's web servers are located in a prime position to deliver the highest quality of service to customers located in the Australia and Oceanic sector of the world.

 When does FTP Access apply to me?

File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, just like HTTP, is a way of accessing content on the internet. FTP is a method which is used only for moving files from point A (perhaps your computer) to point B (perhaps enterDomain's web server).

If you choose to purchase web space from enterDomain, you or your web designer will need to use FTP to copy files onto your web space, ready for viewing by the rest of the internet. You will receive a user name and password in this event.

There are many programmes (commonly called FTP Clients) that will allow you to do this. To name a few, Cute FTP, WS FTP and Leech FTP. Accessing your web space is similar to accessing your web site. You still use the same domain name, however, you will be prompted for a user name and password, to avoid unauthorized access.

More information on FTP, will be made available to you when you purchase web space from enterDomain.

 How would I use Web Forwarding?

On purchasing a domain name or transferring your existing domain name under enterDomain's services, you can elect to also purchase web forwarding. You will need to supply a forwarding address of your existing web space or web site, and enterDomain will link it for you. You can expect up to a 24 hour waiting period in normal circumstances, to have this action performed for you.

Web forwarding is suited to a person who already has a web site and is not interested in moving it; or a person who wishes to host their web site with a separate business to the one who looks after their domain name (some web hosting businesses don't offer domain name solutions).

Your existing web site, may have a long, bulky address like the following one:

http://yourname.web1.developedby.yourwebdesigner.com/~yourdirectory/firstpage.html

When enterDomain is managing your domain name, we can link your domain name to the above address, so that people accessing your web site, simply type in your domain name, for example:

http://www.yourdomainname.com/

They will arrive at the same web site, and will navigate your web site without even seeing the bulky address.

 How does web space work?

On purchasing a domain name or transferring your existing domain name under enterDomain's services, you may elect to also purchase web space. You will be supplied with a user name and password when the configuration of your domain name is complete, and through FTP access, you will be able to update your web site at any time you choose.

Web space is sold as an initial or base amount, of 10mb. This is roughly the equivalent of 14 floppy discs, and plenty of space for a web site with a generous amount of pictures and text alike, at what is standard quality for the internet.

Those who are interested in keeping larger databases of images or content (either text or files), may wish to upgrade in additional increments of 10mb.

Anyone who purchases web space, will also receive access to an extremely dynamic and comprehensive Access Logs viewer, which will indicate how many people are accessing your domain name, where they are coming from and what they are most interested in.
