Your Web Address is http://your_domain_name

In the past having your own domain name meant owning and maintaining your own server, a luxury not everyone could afford. But now, one server can 'host' many domain names virtually. So, to the average web surfer it looks as though you have your own web server! We take care of applying for your new domain name for you, at no extra charge, or we will help you move your domain if switching from another hosting service. New .com, .net, and .org domain registrations are only $20/year. Domain transfers are $20 and the expiration date of the domain registration is extended by one year. Other countries NIC's may charge similar fees, but registering domains other than .com, .net, and .org is the responsibility of the customer.

We can host any domain name, foreign or USA based.

What is Miva Merchant?

Miva Merchant Miva Merchant is a browser based Storefront and Catalog development tool that integrates cataloging, product maintenance, category management, shopping basket, order and credit card processing. Multiple stores can be maintained by one central administrator or specific store functions can be delegated to sub-administrators. The software is organized as a series of modules that can be field upgraded to provide new functionality without any changes to the core system. Developers can use the browser based interface to build stores or can get "under the hood" with complete access to the underlying source codes written in XML based Miva Script. Merchants manage their stores with a user friendly browser based interface. For full details on Miva Merchant, click HERE.

Miva Merchant Demo A great interactive demo is available for Miva Merchant. This demo is hosted on the Miva Corporation web site, so slowness that you incur (if any) is not related to WSO and is not indicative of WSO's speed. Both the storefront (user interface) and the administration system have demos available, but the administration demo is functionally limited for obvious reasons. Please check it out by clicking HERE.

Internet Connectivity: OC-3, OC-12, and OC-48

Our lines are supplied by various providers including UUnet, Savvis, Winstar and FNSI. In house OC-3 connectivity out to local OC-12's and OC-48's cross-country. To understand how large this is considerSavvis that most local dial-up ISP's use several T1 lines for ALL their customers. Just one OC3 line has 84 times the bandwidth of a single T1!

UNLIMITED Data Transfer (hits) to Your Virtual Domain
With all that bandwidth available from the T3 your probably

wondering how much it's going to cost to move all this information -- NOTHING! We have an unlimited transfer policy. That means you can move as much data through your Virtual Domain as you want, 24 hours a day. Not many other companies offer this combination of a T3 and unlimited transfer. Click HERE to find out why this is an extremely important feature.

Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions Included

FrontPage Server Extentions Microsoft FrontPage offers both the novice and the experienced web programmer an easy FP Logoto use tool for creating and maintaining web sites. Learn all about FrontPage HERE. All Microsoft FrontPage enabled WSO accounts are Microsoft FrontPage version 97, Microsoft FrontPage version 98, Microsoft FrontPage version 2000 and Microsoft FrontPage version 2002 compatible! FrontPage and the Miva Merchant Catalog Software work independently of each other. It should be noted that you can link directly into your catalog from static HTML pages like those created with FrontPage.

FREE Secure Server Certificate Use!

ALL WSO account types accounts can use our shared secure server called You can use this for on-line commerce or any other application that requires secure communications.

We use Thawte secure certificates that are completely compatible with both Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Virtual Domain and Commerce Plus customers can purchase their own certificate from either Thawte or VeriSign if they do not wish to use our shared secure server.

POP3 E-Mail Account

You might be saying, "I already have an E-Mail account with my dial-up ISP, why would I need another?" Here's why. Having a separate E-Mail account allows you to collect and send mail. This means you can do all your business or Web site related correspondence through your Virtual Domain E-Mail account, and personal correspondence through your dial-up ISP account. It makes keeping your E-Mail organized easier and makes you look more professional by having a dedicated business E-Mail address.

FTP Account
FTP is the way you upload your Web pages to our server. By using FREE software you can update your web site any time you wish.

UNIX Shell (SSH/Telnet) Account
A UNIX shell account is used through a SSH/Telnet connection. SSH/Telnet lets you work at the command prompt of the server from a remote location (your home or business). Some people will never need to use their shell account, but it is included in our package in case you do! See our Cool 'Net Downloads section for a free SSH/Telnet program.

85 MB's Disk Space
In today's world of multi-gigabyte hard drives, 85 MB's sounds pretty small. But consider this. Take a look around at our Web site. All of these pages and graphics only take up around FIVE megabytes! Since the needs of some my require more space, we offer blocks of 10 megabytes for only $5.00/month. That's only $.50/MB! Some companies charge up to two dollars or more per megabyte.

UNLIMITED E-Mail Forwarding Addresses (aliases)
An alias is a forwarding address to another account. The best way to describe it is by example. Say you want all mail sent to the address 'friends@your_domain_name' to be forwarded to your personal account with your dial-up ISP. You can create an alias called 'friends@your_domain_name' and anytime mail comes for this address it will be redirected to your personal account (which you'll supply the address for). You can also point an alias to the POP3 E-Mail account that comes with your Virtual Domain. This would allow your business to receive mail for multiple people by using a filter in your E-Mail program to sort incoming mail into separate folders. Aliases can be confusing, if your not sure how it works, drop us a note and we'll help you out! But to make things easier, we provide FREE software, accessed through your browser, that let's you add and remove aliases with ease.

Full CGI Ability
Although CGI programming itself is not for the faint-of-heart, many pre-written CGI programs, or scripts, are available on the web, most for free! Things like form processing, guestbooks, etc. are all available. You'll be able to setup and run CGI scripts from within your Virtual Domain. And, since our hardware and software are industry standard, you don't have to worry about compatibility issues.

Miva Script Included FREE
Miva Miva Script is one of hottest scripting languages on the Web. It let's you use the power of CGI without the headaches and learning curve associate with CGI programming. Miva uses an HTML like syntax, is browser independent, supports easily understood programming constructs like IF statements and LOOPING, and makes programming fun again -- you have to try it! Luckily, we have the newest version installed on our server right now for you to use, free! This is software that would normally cost hundreds of dollars!

Detailed Usage / Access Statistics

You want to know what, how many, and when people come to your Web site, right? You got it. At ANY time you can produce a statistic report over a range of dates that tells you as much about the people, and the browsers they use, as possible. Our logs even include a referring address. This allows you to see the Web address of the last page your visitor came from, letting you trace back through search engines (to see where you stand in the rankings) and jump to other pages that have links to your page on them. You can see trends and decide where your traffic is coming from. Not only is it practical, but it's fun! Our log reports break down by month, week, day, and even by hour!
