What are the differences between getting a sub-site of www.b-onweb.com/mysite.htm
or my own virtual domain (http://www.MySite.com)? This is an excellent question. You are the most qualified person to make
this decision, but it may be helpful to use the following table to compare
2. Do you charge anything for the amount of people/traffic
on my web site?
No. Your investment with b-onweb is the
same, even when your site begins to draw lots of people and traffic.
I've seen virtual domains for as low is £12 per month and as high
as £200 per month. Why are the prices so different?
Great question! First, the Internet is still new, and prices always fluctuate
for similar services in a new industry. Second, read the fine print. Very
often, those £12.00/month deals have hidden extra costs, like monthly
fees for the amount of traffic on your site. Imagine getting a great deal
at £12.00/month on your own virtual domain, only to find out that
when more than 100 people visit your 10MB web site each month, you have
to pay an extra £0.70 per person or an extra £0.17 per MB
of traffic. Those costs can add up fast. b-onweb has
no hidden charges, no matter how much traffic you have on your site. Finally,
find out what you get with your virtual domain. Many low-cost servers
have no value-added extras. How easy is it for you or someone else to
upload your own files? How easy is it to get support? Do you have the
ability to run your own CGI scripts? Etc.
What does the set-up fee for my virtual domain cover?
We register your name with InterNIC, configure your server,
get it up and running, and connect it to the world.
