We offer web hosting starting at $12.95/month. If you have an existing web site, or are in the process of creating a web site and need web hosting, please give us a call for details!
Registering your domain
There are two alternatives for hosting a web page. You can use the free Web space included with your account, or you can register a domain name and have it hosted on a secure Web server. If you choose to register your own domain name, ITC charges a hosting fee of $12.95/month.
Free Web space
The free option allows you to use the complimentary Web space that is included with your Internet account.
Cost: No charge--included with Internet account
Storage space: 20MB
Web address: http://web.itctel.com/username
The hosted domain option involves two steps:
- Registering a domain name with a domain registrar.
- Hosting that domain & web contents on a Web server.
- Annual cost to a registrar for domain registration ($9 - $35 per year) Sampling of registrars: http://networksolutions.com (approx. $35/year) http://directnic.com (approx. $15/year) http://godaddy.com (approx. $11/year)
- Monthly cost to host the domain on an ITC Web server, domain name servers, and mail servers (includes e-mail accounts associated with the domain): $12.95/month.
Storage space: 500MB
Web address: www.yourregistereddomain.com (or .net, .org, or whatever is appropriate for the type of web site)
If you plan to have ITC host your Web site and/or e-mail domain, you will need to modify your registrar's default name server, or host addresses, so that the Domain Name System will be able to find your domain. Here is the correct information for ITC's name servers:
Primary Host: ns1.itctel.com
Secondary Host: ns2.itctel.com
Uploading your FREE Web page
It's easy to upload to your free ITC personal web space. Here are the details (you can practice if you're building your own):
- Site to upload to: web.itctel.com (an FTP program will insert the "FTP" information, e.g. "ftp://web.itctel.com")
- Enter your username and password, and the upload will be automatically directed to the folder for that username.
- The URL (in other words, the Web site address) is: http://web.itctel.com/username
- There is a 20MB (Megabyte) quota on our free Web space.
Uploading to your commercial Web space
Site to upload to: yourdomain.com (just upload to the address of the registered domain)
An FTP program will insert the "FTP" information, e.g. "ftp://yourdomain.com/net/org."
- Enter your username & password, and the upload will be automatically directed to the folder for that username.
- An FTP program is an essential tool for the management of Web sites. These programs present an "Explorer window" view of the files and folders on your local computer (left-hand side) and of those on the remote server, and offer a simplified means of transferring or updating files and for troubleshooting. Here are some excellent, no-charge programs:
- FileZilla: (FileZilla is also an "open source" program, with no agenda to sell you an upgrade to a more functional program.)
