We specialize in virtual servers which means that you can find a home for your web site on our web servers and establish a presence on the internet. We can help register your own domain name which will become your unique address on the World Wide Web. Having your own domain name does not reveal that you are renting web space, and, since email can be addressed to your domain (eg. WWW.YOURNAME.COM ) you will not have to announce a new email address if you change internet providers. And, with a domain name you can transfer your web presence at any time and never lose your identity since you can take your www.yourname.com with you.
What is a Virtual Server?
Yes, you will be able to access the domain name with or without the WWW in front. For example, you could access the domain name "mydomain.com" by going to "www.mydomain.com" as well as "mydomain.com".
Will I be able to access my domain name with or without the WWW?
No, you will need local Internet access in order to maintain your web site and retrieve email addressed to your site. We endorse and reccomend several dial-up ISPs for this service. Providing a specialized Virtual Server service means that we do not have hundreds of modems to maintain enabling us to devote more time to our customers and to the addition of enhancements to the entire system.
Do you offer dial-up internet access?
Yes, We do support Front Page Users. Just let us know you need Frontpage support so we can install the necessary libraries.
Do you support MS Frontpage extensions?
Yes, we do offer complete web page and web site design services through our group of talented designers and developers. We are primarily in the business of web hosting and system administration. If you would like to contact one or more of them to discuss design and pricing, please, contact
Do you offer web page design services?
Yes. You can upgrade at any time with payment of the setup fee for your new account. We will also give you any monthly rental credit toward your new virtual server.
Can I upgrade to another account?
Of course. Our hosting machines are designed to make it easy to upgrade or expand your account at any time.
Can I upgrade from to FrontPage later?
Yes, our services are easily upgradeable expandable at any time.
Can I upgrade to a larger account later?
Yes. You can check domain availability direct from our web site.
Can I check domain name availability?
PageManager.Com will register new domain names for you. If you have an existing domain we will assist in getting your domain and website transferred to our servers. There is usually about a 72 hour propagation period where visitors could go to either site. During the propagation period persons accessing your site will be going to both sites until all are accessing the new site.
Does PageManager.Com handle domain registration?
Yes. Whether you place an order by telephone or via our online order form, be sure to specify that you are requesting a transfer and NOT a new domain. You should keep the service at the present site while waiting for Internic to complete the transfer. We will provide you with a temporary IP address so you can mirror the site on our server. All email and web pages will still be accessed from the current site.
Can I transfer existing domain name to PageManager.Com?
Once the your domain name has been registered (or transferred, if applicable), it usually takes about 72-hours before it is active. All internet providers must update their records (DNS tables) to reflect new site locations. This is called propagation.
How long does it take before my domain name is active?
Domains with .com, .net, or .org extensions cost $20 year for a new domain name.
What is the fee for domain registration ?
No. Our experience has shown that 300MB/month is more than enough bandwidth for 99% of all websites and we use it as a bench mark. Depending on the quantity and size of your files, 1000MB could support many thousands of hits per week. If your site begins to exceed several gigabytes of data transfer each month, we will contact you about upgrading so performance doesn't suffer.
Does PageManager.Com limit the number of hits I can receive each month?
Files must be transferred to the web server via File Transport Protocol (FTP). If you have a PPP internet account and need FTP software, you can download a program for either the PC or Mac from our site. Internet providers such as AOL, Compuserve, and Prodigy may have a built-in FTP interface. An FTP tutorial is available for first time users.
How do I transfer files to my web site?
You have unlimited access via FTP 24-hours a day. As such, you can create and maintain your web pages on your own computer and upload files to your web site at your leisure.
Will I have unlimited access to update my pages ?
In general, if you have more than one domain account at PageManager.Com we can point each domain address to the same HTML files. Yes there is a $10.00 setup fee to mirror sites.
Can multiple domains point to the same HTML files ?
Yes, you can use your account for commercial purposes. The World Wide Web has become a most efficient and cost-effective means of making information, products and services available to the users of the internet community. With a PageManager.Com Virtual Server secure processing is available FREE, which provides an environment whereby payment information (such as a credit card number) or confidential information (such as a custom form) can be transmitted from web browser to web server in an encrypted mode. Look for the solid key for secure transaction liscencing.
Can I use my account for commercial purposes ?
Yes. You can resell space within your account. However, you will be responsible for its content and data transfer. A Small Business Domain will only allow you to resell subdirectories. If you are going to resell you will probably eventually want a Corporate Site which is a much more powerful solution that allows you to partition cgi and ftp directories for your customers as well as partiton virtual hosting directories. You can also resell accounts at whatever price you choose. We will bill you our fees and you can charge your customer what you wish.
Can I resell space within my own account ?
Yes. We are pleased to have customers around the world and we're as close as your computer. If desired, we can host non-US domain name extensions.
Do you accept international orders ?
PageManager.Com has been in business since 1996 and is serving a number of active websites. Our staff consists of experienced web technicians, professional system administrators and talented group of designers.
How long has PageManager.Com been in business ?
We bill in monthly increments for Small Business and Corporate accounts and quarterly for standard users and do not require a minimum contract beyond the initial set-up and first month fee. We accept personal and business checks. Email us if you wish to wire transfer as you form of payment.
What contract and payment terms are available?
Yes. We encourage our customers to send email to with questions or concerns about their web site. We are relatively quick to respond to support email up to about 11pm EST on week days. If we cannot offer a solution to a concern within a reasonable timeframe, we will invite you to call us or we'll call you directly.
Do you offer technical support to customers ?
Orders for servers will be configured within 24 hours, and most times will be done the same day. Once an account is set up an activation notice will be sent you via email including a userid, password, and FTP hostname. You can begin uploading files to your new web site immediately. Domain account users will be given a temporary URL to access their site via the web prior to the completion of either domain registration or transfer.
How long does it take to set up a new account ?
