Why would I want my own domain name?

Many businesses like the simplicity of an easy to remember name such as eds-bakery.com or want the appearance of being big enough to afford their own internet server. In that case we will help you find a suitable available domain name and register it for you. Once registered we can set the domain up on our servers and your web pages will be available over the internet under the URL http://www.eds-bakery.

Why would I want a real virtual domain with my own IP address?

An IP address is similar to your own unique telephone number. When this address is matched by our DNS servers to your domain name your web site can be reached by any web browser in use, you can access your site by FTP or telnet, email can be sent or received without problems. In fact you will have a real virtual host (computer) that will appear as any other computer on the internet. Some web hosting services have attempted to conserve IP addresses by inventing complicated programs that allow multiple web sites to share IP addresses. Don't be fooled! IP address sharing is not supported by many browsers and cannot give you the full access to your site that Mission Web Services provides. Our access to unused IP blocks means address sharing when never be an issue when you host with Mission Web Services.

My domain name and/or web site are with another ISP. How can I transfer to Mission Web Services?

Transferring your domain name so you can host your web site at Mission Web Services is easier than you think. We file a transfer request with the InterNIC and they send the domain's owner (administrative contact) an email asking for approval to move the domain to our servers. With the owner's approval the InterNIC can make the transfer within 24 hours.If you are not listed as the administrative contact we may require the cooperation of your present provider or you may have to write to the InterNIC and request the change

Transferring your web site is easy. You can use an FTP program to transfer your web pages to your new site, you can upload new web pages from your PC or you can simply provide us access to your account and we'll copy the files over.
