Back to the news of the day, Kobe Bryant (one of the best players in the history of the NBA) demanded a trade from the LA Lakers, the team that he has played for his entire career. Kobe is upset with what the Lakers have done to build a team around him, which quite frankly is not much. The Lakers have had many opportunities to build a great team around Kobe but for some reason it never happens and it seems that he is just fed up. This led to Lakers and Kobe fans going crazy today about what the future has in store, this did not last for long though - shortly after demanding the trade on the radio - Kobe said he did not want to leave and L.A. and really wants to see some changes for the better. I can't imagine Kobe in any other uniform - he should always be a Laker. Now it will be interesting to see what the Lakers will do following Kobe's public presentations - there will be lots of pressure on Lakers management this summer in order to make some changes and we just have to wait and see what they will do, hopefully lots. This had nothing to do with web hosting or web sites, rather I just wanted to talk a little about Kobe, the Lakers, and basketball.

As you probably know the domain name you use for your web site is very important. Considering the attention span and memory capacity of most humans you want something that is easy to remember and catchy. So we don't know if a very long domain name is ever truly useful - but here is the answer. A standard domain name may have 63 characters, which could be made up of numbers, letters, and hyphens. Then there is room for up to four spaces for the domain name extension such as .com, .net, or .info. So overall a domain name may use up to 67 spaces but obviously you would want something with the least amount of characters so your users could easily remember your domain name and also type into in their web browser. From a search engine ranking perspective, it would be helpful if your desired keyword(s) is included in your domain name although you must find a balance because you cannot only please the search engines. For example you could use all of the allocated 63 spaces on keywords but then customers would probably not remember your company name - so this balance is very crucial. But don't feel that you won't rank on search engines if your keyword is not listed in your domain name. A great example of this is Google; Google started off as a search engine although if you were to hear the name Google 8 years ago you probably would not know that they are in the search engine business. So if a search engine were to come across the Google domain name it would not know that Google is a search engine just from the domain name. Rather there are a bunch of other factors which lead to search engine ranking and your domain name is just one component. So if your keyword is not included in your domain name, do not worry at all. For most people it is difficult to find the balance of easiness and search engine effectiveness. Hopefully this has helped, we would get further into the scoring method for search engines but quite frankly not too many people know this and we probably don't either. I mean if we did you would see us in control of every keyword on ever search engine - wouldn't that be amazing? In the end, just try to keep your domain names under 63 characters.
So if you ever need to know your IP address, here is how you find it.
If you are using a Windows computer click the "Start" button and choose the "Run" option. Once a small screen comes up type "CMD" and click OK. For older versions of Windows such as Windows 98, 95, Windows ME - please type COMMAND rather than CMD.
Next you will see the DOS screen, typically an all black screen with white text. Type the following - "ping yourdomainnname.com" and then press Enter. Once you have done this you will probably see a series of numbers in brackets, these numbers make up your IP address. Once you are done, type "Exit" and press Enter to close the Dos screen.
You see how easy that is. If you did not know how to find your IP address pass this on to some friends this a useful tool and you'll never know when it will come in handy. So next time a person asks you for your IP address you definitely should not say I do not know and don't feel like you need to memorize the words, you could just run this simple search and your computer will do the work for you.
We all are human and at iPowerWeb we understand that things come up, this is why we typically leave your account live for about three days following the expiration of your account...if we don't hear from you by then we are forced to suspend your account - which hopefully will never happen.
Please remember that your hosting expiration date may not always be the same date as your web hosting expiration date. If both your hosting account and domain name are with iPowerWeb, you will be notified by us. But if for some reason your domain name is registered elsewhere please make sure to always renew your domain name on time so your website does not go down. Lets say your domain name is www.abcde.com and the domain name was set to renew on April 24, 2007. If you did not renew the domain name on time, if people were to type your domain name in their Internet browser they would most likely get to your web site. Also don't forget that this may impact your search engine traffic along with advertising campaigns. So to be safe make sure to always keep your accounts in good standing and we will do our best to remind you. If we don't hear from you regarding your account renewal emails, you may even get a call from our Customer Support Department just asking you if you still want your account. We really try to make the entire hosting process as easy as possible for you. Your accounts status following its renewal is just another example of how we work harder for you - we will generally keep your account live for about 3 days just to be safe and some cases even longer. Hopefully you will never have to worry about account renewals and issues like this.

The answer to this question is also no. As long as you are on the Internet the browser you use make no difference. Most people in the world currently use Microsoft's Internet Explorer as their browser - the main reason for this is because most Windows PC's already have Internet Explorer pre-installed so naturally people use Internet Explorer more than any other browser. Although, we are beginning to see that Internet Explorer is continuously losing market share to Mozilla's Firefox Internet browser. According to W3Counter, 66.36% of computer currently use the Internet Explorer browser to surf the net. This is compared to 25.48% of the Internet that uses Firefox and this quite an astonishing percentage when you consider that Firefox is generally not pre-installed on computers, rather people have to manually go on the Firefox web site and download the browser software. Month after month Firefox continue to gain market share while Internet Explorer loses users, we won't go into the details of why that is but one thing we do know is that both browsers are totally fine to use when you are creating and maintaining your web site which is hosted by iPowerWeb.

Being that we operate out of the United States one would think the answer is in USD (United States Dollars) and that is correct. Every product and service listed on our web site is priced in United States Dollars. Although just because the prices are listed in United States Dollars this does not mean that you are not able to purchase our products and services outside of the country. Rather iPowerWeb hosting can be purchased from anywhere in the world either over the phone at 888-511-HOST or through our web site www.iPowerWeb.com.
You may change your hosting service term at anytime without paying any extra fees. All you have to do is simply pay the difference or receive a refund, depending upon whether you want to extend or shorten your service term. To arrange for these modifications, please contact our Billing Department at Billing@iPowerWeb.com with your request. For security verification, please include the last four digits of your credit card on file.
Well not really, we may run out of desirable .com domain names but that would take quite some time. At iPowerWeb we understand that the .com domain name you are interested in may not be available that is why we register domain name extensions other than .com such as; .net, .org, .biz, .info, .us, .co.uk, and .co.uk. Hopefully these extensions are sufficient, if not please call our Sales Department for more information at 888-511-HOST. Even though our web site may not give you the ability to register every single domain name extension out there, please understand that we do host all domain name extensions. So if you have a domain name registered with an Italian registrar you could still host your domain name on iPowerWeb servers. So your domain name does not have to be registered with iPowerWeb in order to be hosted with us. Although people find it easier to have their domain name registration all with us you are more than welcome to register your domain name with another company and host your web site with us or vice versa.
Being an Internet company with a web site, we obviously accept credit card payments. Hopefully every other hosting company does this as well and if you know a hosting provider who does not accept credit cards...I'm not sure if it's a good idea to host your site with them. So it is clear that we accept payment via credit card for our services although not too many people know that we also accept payment via check by phone. This means that you could pay for your hosting services via check!! This is ideal for people who do not like using credit cards or just love to use checks.
Here is a quick list of the payment methods accepted by iPowerWeb:
Debit Cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo
and of course Check By Phone
It would probably be best if you did pay via credit card due to the fact that accounts paid by check, money order, or wire transfer are not setup immediately. Rather you must wait until your payment is received and cleared before we can setup your new account. Another reason why we recommend payment via credit card is because when renewal time comes for your account, we could renew your services via the credit card we have on file - making the entire process much easier for you. Whereas if you were to pay via check, wire transfer, money order you will need to submit payment once again and you must make sure we receive it before your account expires in order to make sure your service is not interrupted.
1. Set your Goal. What do you want to achieve?
* Bigger muscles?
* Less fat?
* More strength?
* More speed?
2. Set a Deadline. Set a date by which you will reach your goal. Write your goal and deadline on a piece of paper and put it somewhere you can see it multiple times a day.
3. Make a Plan. Once you have set your goal, you must back it up with a plan.
* Which exercises will you perform?
* How many sets and reps will you do?
* How many times a week will you go the gym?
4. Exercise First Thing in the Morning. When you’ve just had a tough day at work, it can be hard to train for another hour at the gym. A solution is to exercise first thing in the morning:
* Wake up early
* Eat breakfast
* Prepare the stuff you need for work
* Go to the gym
5. Stick to your Plan. This is something I experienced on numerous occasions. The days you don’t feel like exercising, are often your best days. Maybe it’s the mind-body connection: the body says no, but the mind says go. Thus the body eventually says go too. I don’t know.
6. Train With Someone Who Has The Exercise Habit. If you’re training partner quits, you’ll probably end up quitting too. But if your training partner hangs on, you’ll take it as a challenge.
7. Be confident. You can achieve whatever you want, if you believe that you can do it. Having a clear goal and a plan will already arm you with self-confidence.

Orkut - A social networking site.
Google Video - A web based video site...Google also owns YouTube, a highly popular video site.
And quite frankly this list could go on forever. It seems as though Google is always launching a new site and/or service. Anyway back to the point, will Google come into web hosting. If you are acquainted with the web hosting industry you have probably heard the discussion before, will Google offer hosting services. Considering the strength of Google across the Internet it may seem like a logical and realistic move. At the moment Google does not offer any hosting services like iPowerWeb does and to be quite honest it may seem like a stretch for Google to enter an industry where they would have to offer such complex services. If you own a web site you know how tough it is to control a web server (or at least heard). It would seem that web hosting services would be an industry not right for Google's operations especially when you consider the company's mentality. To simplify everything, Google does not offer web hosting services such as shared hosting and dedicated servers and no one really knows if they will offer web hosting other than Google.
If you are trying to get your foot in the door and build an Internet presence, it will be quite difficult to do this efficiently without utilizing the many opportunities available on sites like Myspace, Facebook and Google. Today we find that web site owners not only manage their own sites but also manage their own Myspace and/or Facebook accounts as well. Web 2.0 has brought an entire social dimension to the Internet with limitless possibilities. If you have not considered using them web site, get their and make yourself seen. Web sites like Myspace and Facebook allow you to communicate with users, fans, and customers on a regular basis and they are a great way to let your following know the latest about your company. Oh we almost forgot to mention, blogs are also a great way to get to your customers and attract potential customers. I mean look at what we are doing right now, we(iPowerWeb) are writing and you the user is interested about what we have to say. Google recently announced a change within its system to something known as Universal Search. With Universal Search you will not only retrieve the top ten most relevant web pages for your query, but you will also have immediate access to other forms of your query - such as news, video and images. For example, if you search for "golf" on Google you will generally see ten web pages related to the term golf; but now you may even see videos, news results, and images related to the term golf.
Therefore if you have been optimizing your web site in order to rank on Google organically - good job and we wish you the best of luck. But please do not take the change to Universal Search lightly, take advantage of the opportunities. This means optimize the images on your web site, regularly send out press releases about your business, and make videos on YouTube about your business. These are just a few thoughts about what you can do to better your presence on the Internet during the Web 2.0 days, bookmark this page in your Internet browser and regularly visit us.
We will try to explain what happens when your registrar denies the transfer of your domain name over to iPowerWeb. At first you may think that your current registrar is not allowing the transfer of your domain name because they do not want to lose you as a customer (even though we may think this, in most cases it is not true) - if this belief holds true for your registrar...run away fast, that's is what you call a company with ethics issues. Back to the point, if your registrar denies the transfer please understand that domain names cannot be transferred if they are expired, registered less than 60 days ago, or if the status is to LOCKED. If you feel your registrar denied your transfer in error, please contact your registrar. If they are not responsive, please contact email@example.com or call us at 888-511-HOST for assistance with this issue. If the domain name has not expired and your account with your registrar is in good standing, we should be able to take care of this issue and in most cases when you transfer your domain name over to us we will add a year to your names registration time. Not only are our services affordable but they are also first class.
This means that you could use a Mac (like a MacBook) and have a BusinessPro package. Your home computer has almost no impact on the type of hosting plan you have. Your web hosting account is located on a server which is located in one of our data centers, therefore all you need in order to efficiently manage and operate your web site is access to the Internet. You could use Internet browsers such as FireFox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. So if you are considering purchasing a new computer and are worried about what kind of impact this will have on your web site, don't worry at all. Enjoy your new computer and make sure you are always using your iPowerWeb account to its fullest and if you ever need anything always remember that our staff is waiting 24 hours a day 7 days a week at 888-511-HOST.

The answer is quite simple, Yes. Although if you are a BusinessPro customer you will not be able to have MS Access support. Rather only our Microsoft Windows servers support MS Access. You should visit our Windows Pro page in order to gain more information regarding our Windows hosting products. If for some reason our Windows Pro package is not enough for you and you are still in need of MS Access support, definitely check out our dedicated server plans. We offer dedicated servers which run on the Microsoft Windows operating system. Please note that we also support ASP (active server pages) on our Windows servers.
Ok so POP3 stands for "Post Office Protocol Version 3" and any normal person should not know what Post Office Protocol Version 3 means off the top of their head, so we will try to explain this a bit more.
POP3 is a TCP/IP protocol that allows e-mail messages to be received from a server. Most email servers use POP3 to allow their clients to retrieve their mail. Hopefully that makes a little more sense.
In normal human terms POP3 is the format of email most commonly used - another somehwat popular version is IMAP (but if we were to explain IMAP as well, we may confuse you even more). So as we have said every BusinessPro Package comes with 2500 email accounts. This means that you are able to create over 2500 different email addresses and if you need more we will allow you. So you could create email addresses like Sales@yourdomain.com, Support@yourdomain.com, President@yourdomain.com and thousands of others. Next time you see the word POP3 just know that is related to your email and remember that it is commonly used.
iPowerWeb uses a web based email interface known as WebMail but you are also capable of using Gmail and/or Microsoft Outlook to check your emails as well.
As you are probably aware iPowerWeb is a highly respected web hosting provider - therefore when you are looking to start your web site you need to find a company (like) iPowerWeb in order to start your site. But before you even by a web hosting plan, you need a domain name. By visiting our domain name registration page you could start searching for your very own domain name. Once you have found the right domain name, you are one step closer to starting your own web site. Don't forget that every shared web hosting account comes with a free domain name therefore as long as your are a customer of iPowerWeb hosting you will never have to worry about domain name registration fees or even renewals. But make sure you are always properly renewing your hosting account. If you are happy with the service and technology at iPowerWeb make sure to refer your friends as well. As we pointed out earlier, you will receive a free account for every three new hosting accounts you refer - this is part of our Referral Program. If you are yet to start your own web site it is definitely not too late, so get started.
The letters SSL stand for Secure Socket Layer. Which is a protocol that allows for secure online transactions. SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA , which also includes the use of a digital certificate .
SSL Certificates are used by online merchants that want to provide their customers a secure method of payment. When sending credit card information over the net, having SSL ensures that the information is transmitted in an encrypted and secure way. It provides your customers with peace of mind. So would SSL be useful for your website, well the answer is YES. Especially if you are planning to sell any goods through your web site. A great bonus about hosting your site with iPowerWeb is that every single shared hosting account comes with an SSL certificate already installed on the server. Meaning that you will not be forced to purchase any additional tools if you want to have secure transactions going through your web site. But if you wish to have your own SSL certificate - as in one SSL certificate dedicated to your entire site, you could do so for an additional fee through our Additional Services Department.
By not charging any additional fees for SSL certificates, we hope that you would agree with us that we are working for you. We feel that it is not right for you to pay for hosting then once you setup your site realize that you will be required to spend a great deal of money just to have your site running properly. Therefore you will receive web site essentials, such as an SSL certificate free with the purchase of each web hosting account. Make sure you utilize all the great features included with every single iPowerWeb hosting account.

Some hosts market themselves on the point that they respond extremely fast to customer emails. This would be a great reason to go with that certain company but once you become their customer they seem to be the slowest people to answer emails. Well it may seem like use sent your question via post mail and are waiting for a response from a messanger on horseback.
So as a paying web hosting customer you should expect to receive a timely response to your email(s), correct? Very true, at iPowerWeb we strive to respond to most emails within 24 hours although we generally respond much faster; probably even faster than the next time you check your inbox. So if you are emailing iPowerWeb for any customer support issue, don't worry about the response time - our support team is working 24 hours a day seven days a week to help customers just like yourself.
The snakes were all within a carry-on bag and the snakes included two highly poisonous cobras. According to Yahia Rahim Tulba he was hoping to sell the snakes in Saudi Arabia. While you are reading this post you are probably asking yourself, 'how is this related to web hosting?' Well....it's not. Every so often we will post about something not related to web hosting at all and as hard as you try this snake story is definitely not related to what we do. By the way the value of the snakes were not immediately known. Hope you enjoyed this fairly odd news post.
One thing that we should point out is that you will never find a special deal on iPowerWeb hosting plans provided by iPowerWeb. This means that our prices will pretty much always stay the same no matter what - even inflation. Therefore you could rest assured that when you are a customer of iPowerWeb you are truly getting the greatest deal on hosting. This may not seem like much as you are reading this page but if you have ever shopped for hosting you will know how many "amazing" deals there are out there. We are not going to point out any hosting companies specifically although we have seen companies use rebates, secret web site links, special phone numbers, search engine ads...the list could go on for days.
The point that we are trying to get across here is that you should never worry about overpaying as an iPowerWeb customer. Rather we work so hard for you and your web site that we hope you will think that you are underpaying for the services :)
It is very interesting to watch the marketing tactics of most web hosting providers, generally you will find a trend that most companies like to copy one another. This means that if one company starts offering deep discounts you could probably bet that many other companies will follow. The same concept applies for storage space, email accounts, and hundreds of other things. Please excuse if we can't stick to one subject in this post, the message we are trying to get across is that you will always get the best deal when you purchase hosting directly through our web site. I guess you could compare this idea with how you should always buy airfare through Southwest.com if you want to fly Southwest. All in all when you are searching for specially priced deals on web hosting - you will most likely not see us on that list. And with all honesty we are quite proud not be a part of those lists and continue to grow the way we do. We want you to have peace of mind when purchasing web hosting from us and you will due to our ethical and customer oriented methods.

Once you have visited our web site, we are sure you would want to give us a shot as your hosting provider.

We will provide you with a full refund of your web hosting fees within the first 30 days.

Believe us, iPowerWeb is a great hosting company - over 700,000 people currently host their web sites with us and we remain as one of the fastest growing providers in the entire world.
A site that is certified by ScanAlert's Hacker Safe tool help protect users and companies from identity theft and credit card fraud. The iPowerWeb site is tested and certified on a daily basis by the Hacker Safe Security Scan, therefore the Hacker Safe logo will only appear on the iPowerWeb site if we pass the requirements. We have applied the Hacker Safe certification to our web site in order to make our users (like yourself) feel secure when making a purchase through our web site. We are always working to satisfy our customers and be ahead of our time in the web hosting industry. Our Hacker Safe certification is just another example of how we work to protect and please all of our customers.

Congratulations, we have now completed a three step basic understanding of getting your new iPowerWeb hosting account up and running! Remember, technical support for your hosting account is available 24/7.
At iPowerWeb we feel that our customers should always feel free to contact us at any time if they ever have any questions. Our customer support team is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week in order to help you with any web hosting and web site related questions. Our customer staff is highly knowledgeable and trained about the web hosting industry, therefore you should never have any worries when speaking to an iPowerWeb representative. We truly feel that one thing that makes iPowerWeb different when compared to other hosting companies is the fact that we welcome all people to contact us at any time.
It is quite obvious that the prices of web hosting services keep going down while the promises continue to rise. Even though we notice these changes, the price of iPowerWeb hosting services have remained the same since the day we came into business - this way you will never have to worry about whether or not you are getting the best price for your hosting plan. As companies continue to decrease their price of web hosting you will find that essential tools may disappear as well - such as the freedom to call in for technical support. We realize this issue and promise you that we will never charge you for simply calling us. This may not seem like a big promise, but as other companies continue to cut costs we feel that nothing is more important than customer satisfaction. Hence if you ever have a question or just want to talk to an iPowerWeb employee, pick up the phone and call us.

This is a question that is regularly asked to our support team by both current and potential customers....the answer is no.
It is our policy NOT to host any adult content on our servers. There are various legal and logistical reasons as to why we have decided to initiate this policy.

In an earlier post we explained how to login to your vDeck account with iPowerWeb.
Once you have logged into your vDeck control panel you can do many things...such as change the password, name servers, or any other feature available in the control panel.
Please Note: We strongly recommend that you let us handle the domain name changes. If you are not fully familiar with how it works, you may stop the domain name from functioning.
Note: In order to use vDeck, your account must be on a vDeck server. If you do not have vDeck, but would like it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open your internet browser and in the address bar, type: http://www.yourdomainname.com/vdeck. Remember to replace the domainname.com part with your actual domain name. Then press Enter.
You will see an admin screen. Type in your username and password and click on login.
You will see a Welcome message and will be logged into the vDeck.
Your vDeck control panel allows you to perform many complex functions with a click of a button. iPowerWeb is always trying to make web hosting easier for everyone.
CTRL + ALT + ESC
While in a full-screen window will launch the task bar. If used while not in a full screen window, it will work like ATL + TAB without the option of choosing which window and simply go to the window whose button is to the RIGHT of the current window.
ALT + D [MSIE]
This will move the cursor to the Address bar, highliting all the text in the bar as well.
ALT + TAB (With Shift)
If you have many windows open, using ALT + TAB can be kind of annoying if you miss the program you're seeking. Adding SHIFT and pressing TAB again will move the highlight back one.
CTRL + TAB
When working with multiple frames/panes, this will jump from one frame to another without having to TAB to the end of the current pane to move to the next. Press TAB again to enter the frame/pane you select.
SHIFT + CLICK (Explorer/MSIE)
This does the same thing as RIGHT CLICKing and selecting "Open in new window". Sometimes, however, I find that you have to DOUBLE CLICK to make it work.
SHIFT + RIGHT CLICK (Explorer)
This gives you an extra option, "Open With..." for certain (most) files types.F1
Opens the Help dialogue for most programs.
When searching using a typical text "Find..." feature, this will do the same as "Find next".
When Do I Receive My Account Information?
Within the first 24 hours of purchasing your iPowerWeb hosting product you will receive an "account letter" via email which will include all of your account settings. Once you receive your account letter via email you could get started setting up your new account. Please note that if you purchased your web hosting account over two business days ago and are yet to receive your account letter, please contact us in order to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
What Is Included With My Account Setup Letter?
Your account setup letter with iPowerWeb is broken down into 7 separate sections - numbered 1 through 7. Here is a short description of each section and their significance.
*Section 1: Account Information
This section provides you with your username, password, and hostname. The hostname is only used until your domain name becomes available. Once your domain is ready, you need not use the hostname. You will use the username and password when logging into your control panel, checking mail, connecting to FTP, and when verifying account security. Your hostname can be used to upload your files, secure your site, or access your temporary URL. All of these are discussed in later sections of this help tutorial.
Username: your user name
Password: your password
Host Name: host#.ipowerweb.com
*Section 2: Account Management
iPowerWeb hosting customers receive a state of the art control panel, known as vDeck. This control panel allows our customers to perform many complex functions with a click of a button. This is part of our ongoing goal to make web hosting easier to use without cutting out important features.
To access your account control panel before your domain name is ready, please visit:
http://host#.ipowerweb.com/vdeck (be sure to replace the #’s with your host number.
To access your control panel after the domain is available, please visit:
*Section 3: Temporary Address
Before your domain name resolves (points over to our servers), you may want to check to see what your website looks like. Many customers upload their files before the domain is ready so they have no downtime. Others upload their files before they transfer the domain to our servers for the same reason. To access your temporary URL, you will need to use your hostname and username. The website to get to your temp URL is:
(remember to replace the # with your hostname and the username with your username)
The temporary address is also used to SSL Enable your site. This means that you can have the lock in the bottom of your browser showing your visitors that your site is secure. To do so, you would use the same temp address, but use https instead of http. The example is show below:
(remember to replace the # with your hostname and the username with your username)
If you rather use your domain name instead of the hostname to secure your site, you must purchase an SSL certificate from iPowerWeb.
NOTE TO FRONTPAGE USERS:
You will not be able to use the hostname to publish your site. You must wait for the domain name to be ready before you can do so. Also, securing your files and folders with SSL is not available with FrontPage built sites that require extensions unless you purchase an SSL Certificate from iPowerWeb.
*Section 4: Email Management
Email is an important part of everyday business. iPowerWeb allows you to create up to 2500 email accounts (which should be more than enough) with our standard $7.95* a month price plan. We also offer a default account. This default acts as a catch-all. This means that any mail sent to any address at your domain name, that does not exist, will go to this catch-all. This section of the account letter provides your default username, password, and POP and SMTP servers. The POP and SMTP servers are bits of information required by email clients (programs) in order to send and receive email. Your POP and SMTP servers are:
*Section 5: Domain Name Information
This section is a repeat of the 2nd letter you received entitled “Domain Transfer Info”. It is here to reinforce the importance of having your domain point to iPowerWeb’s name servers. We also provide the name servers in case you missed them in previous emails. Please read Step 1 in getting started for more information on Domains.
A. New Domains
If you registered a new domain with us upon ordering hosting service, it will be available to you in 24 to 48 hours. Until that time, you will be able to access the account through the Host Name as recommended in section II of this document.
B. Transfer of Existing Domain Names
If you already have a domain name and selected "Transfer" on the order form, we will send you the appropriate materials and instructions for contacting your registrar and completing your domain name transfer. In fact, you should have received that info before you receive the account letter. If you are already familiar with this process, please use the following DNS information to transfer the domain:
Primary: NS1.IPOWERWEB.NET 18.104.22.168
Secondary: NS1.IPOWERDNS.COM 22.214.171.124
Tertiary: NS2.IPOWERWEB.NET 126.96.36.199
Quaternary: NS2.IPOWERDNS.COM 188.8.131.52
*Section 6: Path Information
This section is only important to you if you are a programmer. Section six of the account letter provides path information on how to get to certain CGI libraries, as well as some modules. It also provides absolute paths to your folders. Again, this is only used in programming or web development. Standard users may never need this information.
We understand that this may have been a long post although the information provided here is very useful for all iPowerWeb hosting customers. If you have any additional questions always feel free to contact our customer support department. We are trying to make the complex world of web hosting easier for all of our customer and we hope this post has helped.

Your decision on whether to run on Windows or Linux will largely be determined by the following:
If you are using Microsoft technologies such as MSSQL, ASP, and or Windows Media Streaming - you will be required to use the Windows platform.
Remember that PHP, Mysql, and email will run on both platforms.
With regards to security and reliability both platforms are fine, instead this will be more related to the company you host your web site with. iPowerWeb is a great hosting company which places great value on security and customer satisfaction. Due to the systems in place and industry professionals at iPowerWeb, both security and reliability should never be your concern.
Pricing is somewhat different regarding Linux and Windows hosting, this is largely due to the fact that Linux is an open source software (which means that it is free) whereas Windows is proprietary and contains licensing costs. Therefore you will find that most hosts will charge a bit more for a Windows hosting account when compared to the price of a Linux hosting account.
If you have decided to go with a Windows web hosting plan please visit our web site to gain more information and learn how to purchase your own Windows web site hosting account. Due to the reasons explained above, a Windows account with iPowerWeb will cost a few dollars more per month. But you can rest assured that you will still receive the award winning quality and service that comes with every iPowerWeb product and service.
Here is a link to some more information regarding our Linux based web hosting solution - our most popular package is our Business Pro Plan which has won many awards in recent years.
Always remember that if our web site does not provide you with the necessary information or if you just want to speak to a live person - please call us at 888-511-HOST, we have people available 24/7.

7. myspace 1
8. password 1
10. (your first name)
I'm sure that many of us have used at least one of these passwords once and I highly recommend no one to use these any longer. Please remember that this is just a list of ten and there are many other commonly used passwords. In order to be safe make sure to use a password that is not a word found in the dictionary and uses both letters and numbers.
It is truly amazing how advanced hackers are, therefore in order to protect yourself from many potential dangers - please use a unique password for your accounts (not only web hosting). I also recommend that you don't use the same password for every object that is password-protected. Hopefully some of these tips were helpful and our support team is always ready to answer any questions you may have.
What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is the unique name that identifies an Internet site. An example of a domain name ishttp://www.iPowerWeb.com.
What Does a Domain Name Do?
A domain name is very much like a map, it tells computers where to go in order to locate your web site. For example, when your computer tries to go to www.ipowerweb.com, the request is sent through your internet service provider's DNS (domain name server) Database. So your web browser (the program you surf the web with) sends a request to go to www.ipowerweb.com. Your ISP checks their DNS Database and finds that the domain name of www.ipowerweb.com really points to iPowerWeb's webhosting. It then takes your browser to the correct hosted website.
What is a Registrar?
A registrar is a company that has the ability to register domain names on the behalf of anyone interested in obtaining a domain name. Registrars must accredited by Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers(ICANN) and may only be allowed to register certain top level domain names.
If you chose the "New Registration" option during the account setup, your domain registrar is OpenSRS. You will, however, have to contact iPowerWeb for any updated you need to have done to your domain name. If you chose the "Transfer Domain" option, then your registrar can be a number of different companies out there. If you don't know who your registrar is, contact your old hosting company. Sometimes they may act as a reseller for a domain registrar and in those cases you'll need to contact the hosting company for changes to the domain name.
New Domain Name Registration
Once your credit card has been authorized following the purchase of your web hosting account, we will register your domain name. Your new domain name should be fully registered and running within 48 hours of account verification. We do our best to register your domain name as soon as possible, although there is no way to expedite this even more. The reason for the length of time is because all internet service providers (company you use to get internet access) need a chance to catch up to the domain addition. Once the domain is added to your ISP's DNS Database, your site will be up and running. At this point, you'll need to just wait until your domain is ready.
Domain Name Transfer
Domains that are being transferred may take up to 3 days in order to become available. Remember, that iPowerWeb only attempts to transfer ownership of the domain if you request it. If you rather keep the ownership with the current registrar, you need to contact them and update your name servers. This part of the setup is crucial to the proper set up of your domain. You can use any of the following name servers:
We hope this information helps.

The answer is no...the type of computer you use has no impact on the type of server you should run your web site on and vice versa. Therefore if you are using a Dell computer at home with a Windows operation system - you do not need to buy a dedicated or shared hosting account with a Windows operating system. If you would like more information about this and web hosting in general, call us at 888-511-HOST.
